Watch The Men of War: Vietnam – Dev Diary #1
For reasons I probably don’t need to go into here, the Vietnam war is something of a hangnail for Americans. Sure, we’ve spent a lot of time examining just what the hell happened (and are still feeling the political after-effects to this day). but for better or for worse, we will never turn it into the setting for awesomekickass adventure the way we have with World War Two or more recently, the amorphous concept of ‘modern’ war.
On the other hand, Russia does not have the same kind of baggage, so it makes sense that a Russian company could exploit the war in video game fashion as 1C Company has with the upcoming Men of War: Vietnam. This video explains the development of the game, including plot and story details, historical accuracy and visuals.
