Tripwire announces 'asymmetrical' shooter Rising Storm 2: Vietnam

New, 6 comments

Tripwire Interactive today announced a new game: Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.

Set during the Vietnam War, the shooter features helicopter warfare and ground-based assaults fighting against one another. Tripwire president John Gibson unveiled a trailer (below) for the game at the PC Gaming Show at E3 tonight.

The trailer features both U.S. and Viet Cong troops firing upon one another. The original Rising Storm was an expansion pack for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, released in 2013.

"We're bringing our gritty and realistic military shooter gameplay forward to a time when assault rifles ruled the ground, choppers ruled the skies, and every tunnel could hide an ambush," said Gibson. "The iconic setting of Vietnam opens up so many opportunities for exciting asymmetrical gameplay."

Gibson also said that Tripwire's gory shooter Killing Floor 2, in Early Access, is getting a free "Incinerate 'n Detonate" content pack expansion featuring new maps, weapons and perks. No release date has been announced.
