This Czech Vietcong fansite reported on Friday that Vietcong Fist Alpha has slipped to January 2004 according to Michal Janacek, top bod at co-developer Pterodon. The mission pack, announced in July, had originally been expected to appear in September before slipping to the end of October. Take-Two and publishing label Gathering have confirmed the news.
When it appears, Vietcong fans (like these Czech chaps) can expect Fist Alpha to revisit the fevered claustrophobic FPS action of the original, with more weapons, more planes to bomb you, and buckets more atmosphere. We understand that Pterodon and Illusion Softworks have turned the humidifier up one or perhaps even two notches.
We'll bring you more on Fist Alpha closer to its release in January.
