Take-Two Interactive's Gathering division has today shipped Vietcong to stores across North America. The first-person shooter, which has been developed by Illusion Softworks in association with development team Pterodon, sees players assuming the role of an elite US soldier during the Vietnam War.

"Vietcong transports players to the Southeast Asia battleground through stunning graphics, intense sound effects and complex missions," said Kelly Sumner, president of Gathering. "This action-packed title will have players riveted as they navigate the varied terrain and constant threat of the jungle war zone."

In addition to the single-player campaign, Vietcong features a number of multiplayer gameplay modes in which players can choose to side either with the US soldiers or the VC guerrilla forces.
