Commentary Videos for the Upcoming Hydra 2.0 - NVA vs USA
The Commentary Videos we have shared over the past few weeks have hopefully showed the kinds of tactics and strategy present in VGO. This week we focus on some of the special infantry available to the NVA and how to employ them in a successful offensive. Developers Nuka5 (aka Private Sandbag) and Comedian are back to highlight a frantic battle for the upcoming Hydra 2.0 release of the mod.

The Blinding Light at the End of the Tunnel
We are quickly wrapping up work on the Hydra Release and adding some extra goodies when we aren't squashing bugs. We've shown the commentary videos on how the game and the new NVA faction works and plays. We'll also have more tutorial videos coming soon so everyone knows the basics before jumping in to play, we'll also be highlighting the new King of the Hill game play.

We'll also be releasing the log of one of the VGO developers who actually traveled to Vietnam, as well as photographs and video he took documenting his journey.

But many of you keep asking, "When are you guys going to release the mod?" Things are progressing on track, but due to the holiday over the last weekend of May in the USA, we are aiming for the weekend of June 4th to release the mod (pending any real life issues). 6 and half years later, I can't believe we are finally at the end.

For the VC, no we are not at the stage to release the sub-factions at this point and its up for discussion whether it is something we should pursue. However, the NVA CAN have tunnels, although it is up to the player to make the decision on the route he is going to take, shall we steamroll our enemy with the might of our ground units, shall we conceal ourselves in the Jungle and set up ambushes, or shall we spread tunnels around the map like tentacles and have our infantry swarm the map, the choices, tactics, and chess moves are literally infinite.

You can play the same map, 100 times and play it 100 different ways.

The way things are looking, I doubt this will ever happen. But if there is enough demand for it, we may consider it.

Yes sir, that is where V|GO truly shines. You will not see all units being used by the AI, and unfortunately as INCREDIBLY GOOD as the AI is, it is no match to a talented player in control of a handful of units.

Remember, it is NOT who has the most units, its about who can you the units they have the best, ie: through concealing your units in the cover of the Jungle, Purchasing "necessary" upgrades that make your units more effective, and using your extensive collection of Gen powers to their full potential.

As I explained on the Jungle Warfare Video.

The NVA & Vietcong are not the same faction, they were allies but the not same faction.

The NVA = North Vietnamese Army, they were North Vietnamese, second they were a more conventional army with Vehicles & better equipped.

The VC = Vietcong, were South Vietnamese Communists Rebels, they were a guerrilla group, compared to the North Vietnamese Army the VC were not as well equipped and they had very few vehicles.

The VC was pretty much phased out and decimated by the time the war ended, because the VC was beaten to ineffective levels the NVA had to large a formal military invasion of the South, because they could no longer depend on the VC to get the job done.
