Battlefield Vietnam is the next computer game in Electronic Arts Battlefield franchise after Battlefield 1942. The game was
developed by Digital Illusions Canada and published by Electronic Arts, Battlefield Vietnam takes place during the Vietnam War.
Combining the player-directed team warfare of an MMORPG with the fast-paced competition of a first-person shooter, and the
realism of an accurate historical setting with forgiving arcade style action, Battlefield Vietnam follows the same basic battle plans
as its winning 2002 predecessor, Battlefield 1942. The follow-up allows as many as 64 players to join and battle together online,
across the land, sea, and skies of a virtual Vietnam. Recruits choose to fight for the United States or the North Vietnamese Army
as one of five basic soldier types, each appropriate for a different selection of era-authentic weaponry.
Drivable vehicles include jet fighters, helicopters, tanks, trucks, and Jeeps, and passengers can now fire weapons while on
board. A cross-section of popular music from the era, including singles by Credence Clearwater Revival, Jefferson Airplane, and
the Kingsmen, can be played in-game on the car and truck radios, and will be heard by other players as these vehicles pass them.
Users can also import and listen to customized .mp3 soundtracks (though only on their own computers).
The most immediately obvious difference between Vietnam and 1942 may be the games' environments. Battlefield Vietnam levels
feature the country's thick, jungle landscapes, which can have a great effect on line-of-sight, cover, and tactics, as well as on the
game's overall look. Many credit community support, including fan-made mods and even game-engine rendered "machinima"
movies, with contributing to the success of the original 1942. This Vietnam sequel ships with all the basic map and mission editing
tools in place.
