Last night, the open beta for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam kicked off and is scheduled to run until May 22nd at 1 p.m. PDT. But the beta launch came with some good news for people who have been waiting it play it: the game has an official release date! May 30th will be the official launch of the game from Tripwire Interactive and Antimatter Games, which will see a Digital Deluxe version for sale on Steam, which is currently at 25% off.
The game is as ghastly as you might predict it to be, with new features that will most likely put the first game to shame. We’re not entirely sure how we feel about it being set in Vietnam, considering how controversial that war was from multiple aspects, but at least there’s no campaign mode where the U.S. somehow won everything and did it by themselves like other war titles. This is strictly multiplayer, with the ability to have 64 people fighting at once.
