2019's First-Person Strategy Game Set During Vietnam War RADIO COMMANDER Will Get VR Version
Mechanic: Bartosz Sobczak

Games Operators and PlayWay have announced Radio Commander VR — a new version of last year's real-time strategy game set during the Vietnam War — that will arrive on Valve Index and HTC Vive next year.
According to the Polish publishers, the newly revealed Radio Commander VR will be released in Q1 2021, so at some point between the beginning of January and end of March. It's worth remembering that Warsaw-based developer Serious Sim has only recently finished working on the game's mobile port — which made its big debut on July 17 — so it's safe to say that Radio Commander VR is their top priority at the moment.
"Since day one we dreamt about VR version of Radio Commander," Serious Sim said. "Our goal was to offer players the most realistic [...] Vietnam War experience on the market. VR technology gave us the chance to transfer the player in the heart of the action – right to the center of the South Vietnam of the '60, into a commander’s tent, where he can control US troops fighting with the enemy. Look around the tent and the base. Lean over the map. Move your tokens manually and operate the radio."
In VR, the Full Metal Jacket–inspired Radio Commander will definitely be a much more immersive experience, allowing you to sink into a Vietnamese jungle like never before. As the titular commander, you will make morally ambiguous decisions — dealing with "civilians trapped in the theater of action, shady CIA operations, and cynical political pressures" — in the middle of a fire exchange with Vietcong guerrillas.
