Rising Storm 2: Vietnam adds multi-map Multiplayer Campaign mode

"You may have won the battle," cries an unusually eloquent trash-talker on the other team, "but you haven't won the war!" In Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, his anachronistic cussing-out may now actually be correct. A free update to the first-person shooter today added the new 'Multiplayer Campaign' mode, where 64 players fight across multiple maps and 11 years of the Vietnam War, with new factions…

The ARVN join Rising Storm 2: Vietnam’s jungle rumble

It seems only fitting that the announcement of a new playable faction in Antimatter/Tripwire's historical team-shooter Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is accompanied by a sobering statistic; Over a million Vietnamese served in the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) over the course of the war, and over a quarter of them died. On May 29th, you'll get the chance to wade into battle as…

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam throws Australians into the fray

Crikey! Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, the unforgiving multiplayer shooter from the Red Orchestra devs, has gone down under for its first major update - and come back with an Australian fighting force that's equipped with new weapons and vehicles. The fighting still takes place in Vietnam - it's in the name, innit - but the Bushranger update also brings 3 new maps for the new…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam review

As soon as I peek out over the wall, bullets zip past my head and ricochet off the bricks around me. I duck back down, my screen blurring. I'm pinned down. That is, until the artillery comes down on the enemy trench, its screeches echoed by the cries of the Americans caught in the blasts. I pop my head back up to have a look…

Feature: Some games in an order

Steam Charts: The RPS Effect

Have you heard about Steam? It's a sort of shop, but not a shop with a door and a roof and some shelves. It's a "virtual shop", a place where you can buy games that, incredibly, has no walls whatsoever! It's entirely rendered digitally, using computers. We've taken a look, and totted up the games people are buying the most often.

Hello. I've had this brilliant new idea! Each week I shall tell you which are the top 10 selling games on the PC gaming outlet Steam. No, no, this is nothing like Alec's idea that he had - he did it on a Tuesday. This is entirely different.

Oohrah! Rising Storm 2: Vietnam now in open beta

I played a lot of Rising Storm, the standalone multiplayer expansion to Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad and officially the 27th best FPS of all time. It got its gritty claws into me. So I'm pretty pumped for the sequel, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam [official site], which has now got a launch date of 30 May. Yep, that's just 10 days away. Oohrah! If you…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Trailer Has Nice Hats

I'll come clean: I'd forgotten about Rising Storm 2: Vietnam [official site]. The sequel to WW2 FPS Red Orchestra's Pacific front spin-off was announced by Tripwire Interactive during E3 2015 and, well, I never remember much of E3 week. The data overload flows through me and burns out the paths. Then, months later I'm reminded e.g. oh hey, the Rising Storm gang Antimatter Games are…
