Eidos announces videogame about the Vietnam War.

- Eidos today announced ShellShock: Nam '67, a game that will try to depict the true horrors of the Vietnam War. Developed by Guerilla, ShellShock: Nam '67 will be released for PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC in June 2004.

Players will take the role of a rookie soldier on his first tour of duty in the Vietnam War. According to Eidos, the game will really put the players in front of the reality of one of the most horrible conflicts of all times, from the napalm bombardments of civial villages to the permanent threat of invisible foes and deadly ambushes.

The main character will progress during the game from rookie soldier to member of the Special Forces carrying out classified missions. The game will feature realistic recreations of the different Vietnames landscapes, from the lush wetlands of the South to the mountain borders of the North featuring diverse locations including dense jungles, rural Vietnamese villages and claustrophobic tunnel systems.

Hermen Hulst, managing director of Guerrilla, says: "With ShellShock: Nam '67, we are aiming to deliver a game that really provides as authentic a war experience as possible. Through extensive research on all topics, but also by not shying away from the more controversial aspects of war, we are looking to provide gamers with the closest thing to actually being there."

Mike McGarvey, ceo of Eidos, says: "Guerrilla is an extremely talented developer with brilliant technology and a clear understanding of what makes a great game. We've got high expectations for ShellShock: Nam '67 as it offers a unique take on what is a very successful genre."
