Rising Storm 2 gets Republic of Vietnam DLC this month
Incoming update will add new faction, weapons, and maps
Tripwire Interactive and Antimatter Games have announced that the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) update for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is scheduled to launch on May 29, 2018.
Largely equipped with older US military equipment and trained by foreign military advisors, ARVN soldiers bore the brunt of frontline fighting throughout the war both prior to the escalation of US military involvement and after the US began reducing its troop presence. Players will be able to play as soldiers in the ARVN faction for the first time with new weapons and five brand-new maps.
Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) Weapons include M1 Garand, M1D Garand Sniper Rifle, Thompson M1A1 SMG, M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR), M1919A6 .30-cal Browning LMG, and Douglas A-1 Skyraider ground-attack aircraft.
The two new maps are Quang Tri (daytime supremacy map set in the citadel of the provincial capital), and A Sau (nighttime territory attack map set on an airfield and fortified camp in the A Sau valley).
Made by fans, three player-made maps from Tripwire Interactive’s recent $40,000 Modding Contest will also be officially introduced to the game with the release of the ARVN update.
Rising Storm 2: Vietnam was released last year on PC.
