About This Game

The series portrays battles spanning from 1948 to 1979. Each scenario is played on a unique, historical map with nine view modes. Scenario maps are based on topographic maps from the period created on a hex grid. Hexes are 250 meters across.
 
Each scenario is based on a painstakingly researched historical engagement and has a variable number of turns in which you and your opponent attempt to achieve the maximum number of victory points, usually by destroying your opponent's forces or by capturing objective locations. A wide variety of battle situations are represented in the game, including firebase defense, helicopter air assaults, meeting engagements, trench defenses, armored breakthroughs, battles of attrition, mobile defenses, search and destroy, and more.
 


Campaign Series Vietnam introduces a wide variety of new units with special capabilities, such as helicopters, riverine units, tunnel rats, civilians, and supply units. New tactical realities include flight limitations, no-go zones, IEDs and hidden minefields, tunnels, and unconventional warfare.
 
The Campaign Series Event Engine has been expanded greatly. The dynamic nature of the Scripted AI offers a completely new experience and challenge when playing against the computer opponent. The Event Points system allows players to collect Victory Points based on completing tasks as opposed to just securing objectives and inflicting casualties.
 
There are four low-complexity Boot Camp scenarios, designed especially with the new player in mind, with step-by-step instructions on how to play. The remaining scenarios vary in size from very brief and just a few units to many dozens of turns and hundreds of units. They can be played against the computer, PBEM, head-to-head, hot-seat, or real-time local area network play.
 


The game comes with a full suite of editors for those that would like to create their own scenarios and a large number of ready-to-use historically accurate master maps of varying locations throughout Vietnam.


Conflicts Covered:

   French in Indochina 1948-1954

Campaign Series: Vietnam - Sneak Peek, French into position
26 May 2020


Campaign Series Vietnam is a turn-based, tactical/operational war game that focuses on mid 20th Century conflicts in Southeast Asia, portraying battles spanning from 1948 to 1979.

Without fanfare, its development is progressing steadily and there is so much content the has been added so far that is hard to keep track of all of the elements.

The developer is currently working on scripting the scenarios and this is both a challenge and an opportunity, as it would constitute one of the most important elements of Campaign Series: Vietnam.

Have a look at this screenshot, taken while scripting the French into position:

Countdown to CS: Vietnam 1.0

As we are inching closer to our hands-off date handing out the game code to Matrix Games, here's a little thread to make the wait a bit shorter perhaps.

How long's the wait, exactly? We don't have the exact date yet, and with Matrix announcing plenty of games in October, we are keeping our fingers crossed for November.


By:  Jason Petho

"Hand off to Matrix is the end of October to be released in November (ideally)"


There will be a series of blogs available, I for one are writing two of them

  • Campaign Series Event Engine in Vietnam 1.0, and
  • Wars and battles covered in Vietnam 1948-1967


To start off, here's the first Campaign Series Event Engine (CSEE) Developer Diary out: Triggering Events - link to CSLegion.com

Scenarios?

Answer by Berto (Dev)

107 scenarios in the CSVN 1.00 release.

("We have another 60+ 1968- and beyond scenarios already in the can, but they are not CSEE/SAI scripted or playtested yet. Those 60+ scenarios and dozens more will be released in our follow-up Vietnam DLC.")

When all is said and done, ultimately the CS:Vietnam game will have over 200 scenarios! (Not to mention the eventual Korean War DLC, but not any time soon.)
