    Anyone remember the game Vietcong? The atmosphere and tension in that game was really spot on and for a game based on the Vietnam war era, nothing has since come close for me. Cue Rising Storm 2 Vietnam...

    Up to 64 players
    30+ weapons & vehicles (helicopters)
    Squad based gameplay + the commander role

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/418460/





    Game is currently in closed beta, release is hopefully not far off.

    Epic. Red orchestra 2 and rising storm were the most fun I'd had with an online FPS in a long time. hopefully the player base doesnt die off as quick as it did with RO2 and rising storm.

    Good price. Not pre-ordering but will wait as usual. Reviews should flow quickly after, pretty much a guaranteed buy for me. :thumbup:

    For whoever pre-ordered closed beta 7 is available. I have no idea if there are any Aussie servers, will find out tonight I guess.

    Ohh thanks for the heads up. I sure hope there are Aussie beta servers but I won't keep my hopes up.

    Well that sucks.. Tried to play and after installing the EasyAntiCheat thingo I get this error message

    "EasyAntiCheat cannot run if Driver Signature Enforcement has been disabled"

    First time I've ever heard of an anti cheat mechanism requiring me to enable driver signature enforcement.

    I run win10 and have to disable driver enforcement as I run a Playstation 3 Play TV external USB tv card so I can watch TV. This cannot be disabled.

    Oh well, there's $25 down the drain.

    Guess I'll have to pay attention next time and any game that uses EasyAntiCheat will be off the menu.
