When a video game trailer – or any trailer for that matter – opens with Creedence Clearwater Revival’s indelible 70s rock song “Run Through The Jungle,” you can almost confidently assume that whatever follows will be situated in a war-torn Vietnam. Such was the global impact of the conflict that it permeated the rock and roll scene, and it’s a connection that has undeniably stood the test of time. Case in point: CCR’s classic serves as a backdrop in the announcement trailer for Tripwire’s upcoming sequel, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.
Little-to-no information was made available beyond the reveal footage above, which was unveiled by Tripwire president John Gibson. This was, however, the very first time that the studio has discussed a sequel to the cult series, and the sizzle reel above showcases a firefight between U.S. and Viet Cong troops.
Offered as a standalone expansion for Red Orchestra 2, Tripwire Interactive opened up about the hot-off-the-presses follow-up after showcasing new content for Early Access zombie slayer Killing Floor 2, though there’s scant details on the ground regarding a release date or even window.
