Vietnam's first big game is a historical FPS


4:30 PM on 12.08.2011



Vietnam's Emobi Games is working on what they think will be the country's first big game release. It's called 7554 (representing May 7, 1954), and it's a first-person shooter based on the First IndoChina war. In it, players take on the role of a Vietnam army member. 

"There has never been a video game of this size and scope from Vietnam and that fact alone gives us a lot of national pride," said Emobi director Nguyen Tuan Huy tells 1UP. "It is our privilege and our challenge to create a first person shooter that gamers will enjoy playing. And though 7554 is based on historical events, it is not an attempt to recreate the past, but rather it is a vehicle meant for entertainment."

While this game may have a hard time standing up to the top franchises in war FPS out there, it has a few things going for it. First, 1UP says that it will be available for just $12 on PC (single-player price) when it's released in February in the United States and France. This game would give us a different viewpoint from what we're used to in historical FPS titles. 

Be sure to check out the trailer. Not bad, huh?

Far Cry 4's Pagan Min teaches a man to scream for help, not text for help

Poor Pagan Min. He tries ruling his regime with a positive influence, but all those terrorists are there to just, ahem, "muck" it up. Maybe his tendencies to take hostages and implement electroshock torture aren't viewed by everyone as "positive," but it's tough to argue with such a snazzy dresser.more
