Official Press Release

Tripwire Interactive has released a brand new trailer highlighting the air power that United States Armed Forces will have at their disposal in their upcoming tactical FPS, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. The sequel to the smash hit Rising Storm, PC Gamer’s 2013 ‘Multiplayer Game of the Year’, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam will be published by Tripwire Interactive, and is currently being developed by Antimatter Games, the same team that created the award-winning innovative asymmetric gameplay of the original Rising Storm.

Today’s brand new trailer features three helicopters which can be piloted by players during matches in action. The all-purpose and iconic UH-1H Iroquois, nicknamed the “Huey”, functions as both a transport, carrying up to 6 passengers around the battlefield, or a mobile spawn point for U.S. Armed Forces, bringing with it two M60 door guns to provide cover for teammates below. Battlefield tacticians will likely favor the OH-6 Cayuse, nicknamed the “Loach”, for its ability to quick recon the map and the ability to use commander abilities from the cockpit. The final helicopter, the AH-1G, nicknamed the “Cobra”, brings down the heavens with its arsenal of weapons, including two FFAR rocket pods, a 20mm M195 auto-cannon, a 40mm grenade launcher, and a front-mounted minigun.

To celebrate the new trailer release, all of the previously released games in the Red Orchestra/Rising Storm series are currently 75% off on Steam. The sale ends on Monday September 5th at 10AM PST / 1PM EST. Click here for more information.
