Kuma Reality Games and The History Channel today announced the release of the final game-isode in the "Shootout!" series, "Tet Offensive: The Embassy." In conjunction with the new release, Kuma Reality Games will host a multiplayer event on Saturday, December 30, providing gamers the opportunity to participate in a two-team "shootout" set inside the U.S. Embassy grounds in Saigon, circa 1968 – allowing players unique access inside the main Embassy building and on the rooftop. Eight "Shootout!" players will have the chance to win their choice of two premium prizes: a DVD of the "Tet Offensive" episode from "Shootout!", or a DVD of "The Tet Offensive" episode from The History Channel series, "Declassified." Both titles are available exclusively from the The History Channel library. "Shootout!" airs on The History Channel on Friday at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
The latest "Shootout!: Tet Offensive" chapter captures the essence of the Vietnam war in 1968 at the start of the Lunar New Year Celebrations, transporting players 20 miles northwest of Saigon where an American platoon has been battered and bloodied and is in dire need of back-up after a surprise offensive by Vietnamese forces. Gamers serve as members of the reinforcement troops of the Bravo Company who swoop through, quickly tracking the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese troops. The action escalates as their stealthy pursuit soon leads to a harrowing shootout through the jungles surrounding An My.
Using heavy 3D CGI animation sequences, players can experience the thick of the battle from the viewpoint of the historical participants themselves. Viewers of the show can log onto www.History.com or www.KumaGames.com and download the online game for free immediately after each episode airs.
