Air Conflicts: Vietnam out now for PS3

ACV_04

Hi guys! My name is Daniel Krauß from bitComposer Games and over the past 10 months we´ve been working together with Peter Nagy and his team from GamesFarm on Air Conflicts: Vietnam, the third title of the Air Conflicts series.

After taking the series to Europe and the Pacific, we’re now transporting the player to a completely new and underrepresented scenario. Besides, we have to admit that as Kilgore said in Apocalypse Now – we love the smell of the napalm in the morning…

So, what is Air Conflicts: Vietnam all about?

Get into your jet or helicopter and witness the Vietnam War through eyes of our main character Joe Thompson. Fly over jungles, mountains and lowlands in a huge array of different aircraft from the Vietnam era, both fixed wing and helicopters. Experience the story of Joe as a pilot – leader of a squadron of men with varied talents and traits, all of whom you control – and of Joe as a family man – a son, a husband, a father; a moral man who comes to question his patriotism and sense of duty as the horrors of the Vietnam War unfold.

It may be an Arcade experience at heart but we keep it real when it comes to historical accuracy. Air Conflicts: Vietnam is focused on some of the most famous battles of the Vietnam War, presenting them from Joe’s perspective as a pilot in the US Navy. We’ve striven to present the game from various angles, showing both sides of the Vietnam coin. However, it is the story of one pilot and his family back home – a story describing the influence of war on all involved; both the good and the bad.

Challenge yourself in dogfights against the supersonic MiGs of the NVA, deploy troops and support them from the mounted gun of your UH-1 Iroquois, and fly top secret missions to interrupt the supply lines of the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail. Defend yourself from the unrelenting AA of the enemy forces, search out and rescue your lost comrades before they fall prey to the Viet Cong, and aid in the evacuation of civilians and military personnel in the last days of the war and the eventual fall of Saigon.

Air Conflicts: Vietnam launches today for PlayStation 3, via PlayStation Network, priced £31.99/€39.99.

Did you enjoy this?

Why there is no vita? Explain

 

Looking promising, though I guess with all coming games the question for many will also be ‘will there be a PS4 version?’

 

@syke_sun
A small publisher for a niche title probably can’t afford the additional risk to develop a port for a minor platform.

And maybe you want to explain why you apparently think that they are obliged to do so?

This game has a rather unique scenario, it looks quite attractive.

Daniel, can you confirm if the game is compatible with Thrustmaster’s flightstick, T-Flight Hotas X? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Wired_Gantz,

    I talked to the developer and there is no joystick support on consoles.

 

Yes I would also like to know about Flight Stick Support. I have one from MadCatz called CYBORG.

Thanks for the reply, Daniel. Even without joystick support, I’m very eager to play this game. :)

I love the Vietnam era theme and always find it amazing that so few games have it as their theme. For a while I had hopes that CoD Black op s would have a main Vietnam theme but it was only one mission in a Cold war theme. :S

Only problem I have with this title is the price. 40 euro’s for a PSN game. That’s pretty expensive!

 

I would be very interested in a Vietnam or WW2 era flight game on Vita. Mission variety is a must – I have not played any of these games on PS3 but would like to see everything up to Air support for ground operations and dropping paratroopers.
