Yet more explosive details hit our inbox from Codemasters. This time for their much anticipated shooter – Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising. As well as the latest screens, that can be seen in our recent media post, a new video has been released for the game.
The “Open World Modern Warfare” gameplay video, shows more in-game footage to get your juices flowing even more, as we wait for its release this summer.
Presenting tactical, immersive warfare on a scale never seen before in a shooter, the new video demonstrates how Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising takes gamers to the vast 220 km² island of Skira, a rigorously researched and meticulously recreated battlefield, located off the eastern coast of Russia and north of Japan. The game authentically recreates conflict on a 360-degree theatre of war, allowing players to approach objectives on Skira from any direction. On this immense and realistic battlefield, where one bullet can kill, players face the fear and mortality felt by soldiers immersed in deadly modern warfare as they are challenged to survive the rapidly evolving situations of battle.
As the epic campaign unfold, players will fight as US Marines Infantry and Special Operations Forces fireteam leaders against the military might of a division from the People’s Liberation Army of China, in an attempt to prevent a flashpoint engagement over oil erupting into a full blown international war. From intense fire fights through to paced tactical decision making, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising recreates the brutal reality of the modern combat experience with serious attention to the detail of the weapons, equipment and tactics of the armed forces.
In addition to the extensive single player campaign, an in-depth co-op multiplayer component will be featured, enabling squads of four players to work tactically through the intense campaign together. Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is set to deliver the most accessible, engaging and visceral sandbox shooter of the year and it’s coming this summer for the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles.
