Two and a half months after the game was first scheduled for release, development on ShellShock: Nam '67 is finally complete. Eidos announced today that the game has achieved gold status and has been sent to the factory, and it's on track for its September 14 ship date.
ShellShock: Nam '67 is part of a wave of Vietnam games that includes Battlefield: Vietnam, Conflict: Vietnam, and Vietcong: Purple Haze. However, its developer, Killzone-makers Guerrilla Games, hopes to set it apart from the competition with an in-depth, morally ambiguous storyline. The game will also feature the action requisite in a third-person shooter, as well as many battlefield details from the Vietnam War, including booby traps and Vietcong tunnel complexes.
