BATTLEFIELD VIETNAM | 2004

In 2004, Battlefield Vietnam released on the PC. Battlefield Vietnam is a first-person shooter video game that lets you fight in the Vietnam War using various weapons and vehicles on historical maps.

 

Nerdy Facts:

  • The game features a rock soundtrack from the 1960s and 1970s, which can be played on vehicles’ radio or in the main menu. Some of the songs include “Fortunate Son” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, “All Along the Watchtower” by Jimi Hendrix, and “Ride of the Valkyries” by Richard Wagner.

  • The game allows players to customize their weapons with different attachments, such as scopes, silencers, and grenade launchers. Some of the weapons are based on real-life models, such as the M16, the AK-47, and the M60.

  • The game has a historical mode that changes the balance and availability of weapons and vehicles according to the actual events of the Vietnam War. For example, in the Ia Drang Valley map, the U.S. forces have access to helicopters and air strikes, while the North Vietnamese forces have only infantry and anti-aircraft weapons.
