ALSO, free Beta weekend is open right now to try the game out. Ends on Monday.

Dammit, I really want to try it out but there's still so much of my B's Thesis left to write. Maybe in summer, if I get a job that pays at all.

Will you post your thoughts here about RS2? I'm curious to see how it holds up against RO2/RS1.

Just played a few rounds. Imo it's better than RO2 and RS. The squad system is more in line with BF2. Overall it's still very similar to RS tho. sounds are still lackluster and there's no vehicles :'( (haven't played choppers yet)

Still a good game and worth the $30 bucks imo. I just pre-ordered :) I hope they support the game and add things like South Vietnam, M113s and the Australians like the devs said they want to.

Can't decide to pre-order or not. I am enjoying it more than RO2, where I can't seem to kill a single person ever, but would like a little more variety in maps/weapons/vehicles (ARVN please!) If there is inevitably to be a French Indochina War mod that would really seal the deal.

I am having fun though. The M16 is a killer weapon but I can't shake my WW2 habit to use the Mosin Nagant when possible.

I pre odered. You get 25% off the 'deluxe' addition (which is some soldier items like hats etc..) Imo $30 is just right for this game, it's not a AAA title worth $60, but it's well polished and I find the infantry gameplay to be solid.

Idk how many maps there are right now, but there's enough to keep me interested for a while. It'll probably be like RS where new maps from the community are thrown into the rotation.

From the FAQ thread on reddit;

Quote
Q: Are There plans for microtransactions or paid DLC?
A: Yes, we are looking at adding cosmetic packs to the game post launch. This will allow characters to have additional items to personalize their in-game characters. This paid content is designed to help us continue supporting the game with new free content for all players moving forward.
Q: Does the game feature a modding SDK? What can you do with it?
A: Yes the game features a full SDK. Modders can do anything from new maps and weapons to full total conversions if they wish. It is most similar to UE3/UDK with game specific unreal script extensions and middleware additions.
Q: What Factions Are Available in Game? A: Southern Forces: United States Army & Marines Northern Forces: Northern Liberation Front (Also known as the Vietcong) and the People's Army of Vietnam (The North Vietnamese Army).
We are looking at adding the ARVN and ANZAC forces as an update at some point during the game's life cycle. But keep in mind that plans can change.

https://www.reddit.com/r/rs2vietnam/comments/691859/rs2_vietnam_updated_faq_and_information_guide/

I'm psyched they want to add ARVN and ANZACs. Ik nothing's official but the devs seem pretty passionate in wanting to bring new stuff. Looks like no French Indochina War, but tbh that's a stretch in any Vietnam game. (does EOD have a French faction?)

there's also talk on the forums of add drivable M113s for the Americans. No tanks or anything that powerful tho.

Looks like the perfect mix of BFV and Insurgency, both games I really liked. I won't have much time to game in the coming year, but I'll be sure to get this game for the little time I'll have :). I hope I won't be disappointed.  :)

I am beyond pumped to see ANZAC in the game, not a faction you usually see in the tiny Vietnam game genre

Did anyone else buy this game? I've had a good time playing around, and the 'Double XP' weekend's brought me to level 12 already 8)

It's a fun game imo. Standard Rising Storm, and it's Vietnam so it's something different. It's got a few problems; the server browser, stuttering and hit reg have been the most frustrating so far. But the devs released a list of potential fixes for a patch that should come out later this month.

They also noted that they have the ANZACs and ARVN in their content roadmaps sometime down the road 8)
