Vietnam: The Tet Offensive & SAS: Against All Odds

Oxygen Interactive announces plans to publish a pair of new first-person shooters in the works at Atomic Planet Entertainment: Vietnam: The Tet Offensive and SAS: Against All Odds (thanks Frans). Here's the deal:
Vietnam: The Tet Offensive / SAS: Against All Odds
Oxygen Opens Fire With Atomic Titles

Further expanding their burgeoning release schedule, Oxygen have now added two new FPS titles to their release schedule, with PS2 and PC versions in simultaneous development. Due in September, Vietnam: The Tet Offensive will feature a range of action-packed missions and an innovative damage system, packed with accurate historical details. Following a month later, SAS: Against All Odds boasts counter-terrorist missions based on contemporary politics, with stealth-heavy, tactical gameplay.

Having already built up a range of sports and motorsports titles, these new additions provide a logical extension of the range. As Publishing Director Kevin Hassall explains: "These are two easily-accessible, high-quality titles, combining pick-up-and-play gameplay with subject matter that everyone can understand. With a mass-market retail price and full-price gameplay, with these as with our sports titles we're delivering quality and value-for-money to casual and dedicated gamers alike."

Development is already well under way at Atomic Planet Entertainment, with teams who have already proved themselves with high-quality action and adventure titles. "It is great to be working with such an ambitious, and fresh new publisher as Oxygen" says APE MD, Darren Falcus. "Their philosophy of developing quality products at an impulse buy price point fits in nicely with our goal of creating great games for the mass market. After many years of development, we are finally reaping the rewards of our investment in our cross platform technology and tools which allow us to make games in a shorter timescale, whilst maintaining a high quality."

Oxygen have assigned a six-figure TV advertising budget to add real firepower to the planned PR and marketing campaign, which will cover on-line, lifestyle, specialist, in-store and TV/radio.

The TET Offensive

Hmm, really? I guess the original is probably not written with our alphabet, but I don't usually see Tet capitalized in Tet Nguyen Dan.

I guess it's time for developers to beat up on the Vietnam war now that there are 427 WWII games out.

True but soon enough that will be worn out too and we'll get something more modern like "U.S. Army Rangers - Beat the shit out of Prisoners".

Since when are US Army Rangers beating up prisoners? Just because your wanting to be humorous greatly outweighs your intellect doesn't mean you should parade around showing it off.

Neither humorous nor accurate. gg

if he put the word "daikatana" in that sentence with the U.S. Rangers beating the shit out prisoners, you'd be laughing your ass off

Pfft, Daikatana is too old, I think we should phase it out in favor of DX:IW in shitty-game jokes.

It's all about the graphics engine capabilities. WWII = beach, small towns and villages. Then you have Desert oriented war games. And now that cpus and gfx cards are faster, Vietnam games will work (i.e. jungle filled with trees and vegetation). ;-)

What the hell was wrong with Deus Ex? For it's time it was a perfectly good game, and I'm a picky ass gamer.

I want to see some poor black GI (who got drafted because he was poor and black) begging for morphine and calling for his mother because what used to be his lower torso is now sitting about 80 feet from the malaria-infected mud puddle he's thrashing around in. Fuck this rah-rah feel-good patriotic propaganda bullshit that passes for a war FPS these days. Where are the raped little girls, burned out villages and dead civilians? Not in Vietnam: The Tet Offensive, I'm sure.
