Codemasters Release Some Cool Looking Screens for Operation Flashpoint 2
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.
