EA is pleased to announce that Battlefield Vietnam has officially gone gold for the PC. The game is set to ship nationwide to retailers under the EA GAMES brand on Monday, March 15.

The Battlefield franchise is entering a new era with more firepower and beautiful yet ferocious new combat settings. Offering an arsenal of weapons and vehicles authentic to the Vietnam conflict, players will battle in first-person perspective. Staying true to the over-the-top, action-packed multiplayer style that gave Battlefield 1942 its critical and commercial success, Battlefield Vietnam will drop players into some of the Vietnam War's fiercest battles. Fighting in theatres from jungles surrounding the Ho Chi Minh Trail to the city streets of Hue, players will choose from two well-equipped forces, the United States or the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and Vietcong. All of this action will be accompanied by the sounds of an authentic Vietnam era soundtrack to immerse the player into an experience similar to that of a Hollywood film.


Any interest?

Can't wait for it. BF1942 is one of my favorite FPS's, when i first saw the video for this game with that CCR song playing in the background i couldn't wait to play it.

This is good month for FPS fans. I believe in addition to BF: Vietnam, we're also getting Farcry and UT2004. I don't have the time or money for more than one of these, and it'll prolly be BF: Vietnam.

I'm kinda an MMO fan myself. If the have tons of people to kill and constant sever support (ala PS) I'm interested. Otherwise... I'll burn out pretty quickly.

BF1942 got old in about 1 month, don't see this being any different.
