ShellShock: Nam ’67 Ships

Talk about not wasting time. The day after it announced ShellShock: Nam ’67 went gold, Eidos has shipped the game to stores. Rated “M” for Mature, the game will retail for $39.99 for the PC and $49.99 for Xbox and PlayStation 2 versions.

Developed by Dutch studio Guerrilla Games, ShellShock: Nam ’67 welcomes players to the jungle at the height of the Vietnam War. Unlike the war-as-sport approach taken by Battlefield:Vietnam, the third-person shooter aims to show the horrors of war in unflinching detail. Besides chaotic ambushes and graphic violence, the game will also contain hallmarks of the conflict such as Vietcong tunnels and booby traps.
