Vietnam '65 release date announced!

Post by Daniele » Tue Feb 10, 2015 4:00 pm

"I do not believe that the men who served in uniform in Vietnam have been given the credit they deserve. It was a difficult war against an unorthodox enemy..” (William Westmoreland – Chief of Staff of the US Army from 1968 to 1972)

Vietnam ’65, the new counter-insurgency strategy game by Every Single Soldier, has an official release date! We're releasing on March 5th and streaming it live tomorrow at 2 pm EST/20.00 CET.

Developer Every Single Soldier aims to capture the specifics of the Vietnam War. At the head of the US forces, you will have to forget what you have learnt from other strategy games and think differently to destroy the enemy: building a safe logistic chain, gathering intelligence through the local villages, calling in air support on time, revealing the Ho Chi Minh trail, and minimizing casualties will be crucial to securing political support and eliminating the invisible Viet Cong threat!

Check it out tomorrow as we are going to give you a sneak peak of the game on the official Twitch channel of the Slitherine Group!

well what it's worth and what others wish to pay for it are too different things :roll: :wink:

£ 13.99 for Battle Academy 2 and Pike and Shot, so i'd say for a wild guess, and a stab in the jungle on a lonely path if i get i wrong, somewhere around the same for the pc version and the Ipad one for £ 13.99 to £ 6.99 depending :?: :roll: :wink:

only guessing mind you, as i have no idea either :shock: 8) :lol:

fiction based in theatre / country
It is 1965 and the US ground war in Vietnam is in full swing. As a US Army commander, wage a counter-insurgency (COIN) war to secure the La Drang valley, on the border with Cambodia.

In order to win the Hearts and Minds of the local population you will need to search for and destroy the Vietcong (VC) insurgents, who infiltrate from the Ho Chi Minh trail and destabilize the province by intimidating the locals, laying mines and ambushing your forces.

The insurgents also have a bigger brother, the North Vietnamese Army (NVA). This well trained, conventional army have much wider ambitions than the VC, they want to take total control of the valley, a stepping stone to unifying North Vietnam with the South under communist rule.

The NVA conducts operations from across the border, primarily aimed at supporting the insurgency and launching offensives when the time is right.

To carry out your COIN mission, co-ordination of ground troops, special forces, artillery, mechanized units, training of local forces (ARVN) and airmobile assets is essential, but of greater consequence is winning the support of the local population. With greater co-operation from the local inhabitants comes the reward of intelligence, a key factor in COIN warfare.

The war is not fought in isolation, so as the commander of the US forces, you will have the added complexity of managing the support for the war back home, should you the lose the Hearts and Minds of the American people, the war will also be surely lost.

This is a game that captures the true essence of the Vietnam War, where airmobile operations are paramount, fire support bases play a critical role and air strikes can save the day.

Rise through the ranks and watch your personalized uniform transform from a junior Lieutenant to General as you relive the Vietnam War.

Hearts and Minds victory conditions
Political support model

Special Forces operations (Green Berets)
Operational intelligence map
Training of South Vietnamese Army (ARVN)

The game map is randomly generated so is not a specific place, but rather captures the feel of the war. You have to deal with the kinds of issues the US Army had to cope with back then and to do this we need to randomize it so you don't know where the enemy is coming from. Each game will have the Ho Chi Min trail in a different location, giving lots of replay value and meaning you have to learn how to cope with an insurgent enemy rather than learn where they will spawn.

special forces are elite units, but do combat the same as any other unit, just a bit / a lot better, but most use them for scouting not combat as that's there primary role /job / mission, but you can play it any way you like tbh, i have :roll: :wink:
