Pre-orders and system specs for hardcore FPS Rising Storm 2: Vietnam released


What with the 20th century making a sudden comeback in shooters of late, there’s a major conflict that’s been overlooked: Vietnam. That’s set to be remedied sometime in the next few months with Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, and though we still don’t have an exact release date, we now know the system requirements, and the various editions on offer.

Keep an eye on our upcoming PC games list for more future hits. 

You can pre-order the digital deluxe edition now if you wish, and at a 25% discount (so £17.24, or $22.49). The discount will be removed at launch, after which the digital deluxe edition will cost $29.99 and the standard edition $24.99.

Besides the usual in-game Stuff (six various hats and cosmetics), pre-purchasing will also allow you to join a closed beta weekend just before launch. Here are the system requirements:


  • CPU: Intel i3 at 2.5 GHz, AMD Phenom at same
  • GPU: GTX 460, ATI Radeon HD 5850
  • Memory: 4GB


  • CPU: Intel i5 at 3.2 GHz, AMD 4GHz
  • GPU: GTX 760, AMD R9 270X

The original Rising Storm was a cult success. The sequel will be a hardcore tactical multiplayer FPS, aiming to be “a brutal, authentic recreation of the Vietnam War”. Accordingly, you can fight for the Vietnamese resistance or the US military.
