Tripwire Interactive and developer
Antimatter Games continue to expand and improve their award-winning first-person
shooter RISING STORM 2: VIETNAM with today’s release of the free Army of the
Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) Content Update. As part of its continued commitment
to support its active community with regular and significant free updates,
today’s ARVN Content Update introduces the Army of the Republic of Vietnam as a
playable faction along with new maps, weapons, and more.
Over one million Vietnamese served in the ARVN over the course of the Vietnam
War, with over 250,000 lost in action. Largely equipped with older US military
equipment and trained by foreign military advisors, ARVN soldiers bore the brunt
of frontline fighting throughout the war both prior to the escalation of US
military involvement and after the US began reducing its troop presence.
With the release of the ARVN update on May 29, 2018 for RISING STORM 2: VIETNAM
players can play as soldiers in the ARVN faction for the first time, as well as
enjoy new weapons and five brand-new maps.
