Codemasters Release Some Cool Looking Screens for Operation Flashpoint 2

Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising

Okay, so maybe Codemasters has released only two new screens for Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising, (the title screen is old) but two are better than none at all. Even better still, is the fact that the folks over at Codemasters have confirmed that their war simulation game will be here sometime this winter, and we can expect an official announcement sometime soon. Don’t ya just love to be teased like that?

If per chance you are unfamiliar with Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising, the game focuses on modern-historical warfare, where you must actually think about what tactics you are going to use. Theevents will unfold in real-time thus making the game play out like a real war only, thankfully, with this war-simulation game if you die you can just start over from your last save point. During the game you will play different positions on the battlefield and use a variety of machines such as helicopters and tanks to further your chances of victory.

The events in the game take place on an island rich with oil and everyone is trying to lay claim to it: The Americans, Chinese, Japanese, and Russians all have an international interest in it. At the start of the game, a Marine task force is sent in to protect America’s interests and stop the Chinese from taking it over when the Russians come calling for your aid.

Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Force is the second title for the series, (excluding the Resistance expansion pack) the first being the gamer classic Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis and if you are interested in either game, they both sound like an interesting chance to try something other than your classic FPS WWII game. In development for quite some time, the original development team, Bohemian Interactive Studios, had a bit of a falling out with Codemasters and parted ways. Codemasters then took over the project and revamped it from the ground up, which is one of the reasons it has taken a few years for the project to even get a release window.

Check back often as more details will be announced in the near future. Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising is to be made available for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

I love these fake screenshots.

Actually, they are not fake “me” and they are on other sites besides this one.

The main gripe i had with OFP 1 was that it was more realistic than fun. Armed Assault was the same way. Hopfully without Bohemian involved it’ll have a bit more on the fun scale rather than just realism.

Steph, I may be wrong but what I think “Me: was refering to was that these are probably “screenshots” pf a cut scene or opening movie, something of that nature, rather than actual gameplay. Which would not be unheard of in the industry.

True, but if they were actual gameplay screens, they would be described as such. I have to say, though, that usually you can pick a cut-scene screen out by how “pretty” it is, because no matter how great the graphics, there is going to be some bit of graininess or a bit of fuzz to them.

And if you want my opinion, the company that is the biggest culprit when it comes to cut-scene screens is Capcom – case in point: DMC4

I hope they don’t screw it up.

OFP is still one of the best (and most modded) games EVER

I loved OFP, but the game was very un-intuitive and “clunky”.

If Codemasters can clean up the interface/controls without losing the depth of gameplay, I’ll be a very happy gamer. :grin:

OFP was pretty cool back in the day, when I first read about a sequel they where going with Vietnam setting obviously thats not the case now.

This isn’t the original OFP development team that made OFP2. The original team was PO’d at Codemasters advertising of the game so they left them, but Codemasters owned the game Operation Flash Point, so they were able to do whatever they wanted with it. Don’t go in with the expectation that this will follow in the foot steps of the 1st game, it’s a development team put together by Codemasters.

Bohemia Interactive Studios, the original developer of OFP has the game out ArmA, and is in development of ArmA2.
