Kalypso Media has signed a deal to publish bitComposer Games’ arcade-action air combat videogame, Air Conflicts: Vietnam, in the UK and Export territories. Air Conflicts: Vietnam will be available this autumn for Windows PC, the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
Air Conflicts: Vietnam takes players to the skies above Southeast Asia during the most heated moments of the Vietnam War and challenges them to fly both fixed-wing combat planes and helicopters of the era. The videogame offers an extensive single-player campaign wherein players will protect allied troops, launch assaults on enemy positions, engage in daring dogfights and much more. In online multiplayer, gamers can take to the skies in both American and Soviet-supplied North Vietnamese jets used during the conflict in furious eight-player aerial battles.
“We are excited to continue our publishing deal with bitComposer Games and their take on the fierce air battles during the Vietnam War” said Andrew Johnson, MD of Kalypso Media UK. “Air Conflicts: Vietnam will take gamers on an emotional and exhilarating journey through a fascinating and controversial period in military history and will provide armchair pilots with the chance to fly not only fighter jets but devastating attack helicopters”
No specific release date has yet been announced for Air Conflicts: Vietnam, but Electronic Theatre will of course keep you updated with all the latest details as the videogame approaches its intended autumn release.
