[GC07] Operation Flashpoint 2 named; first trailer released

Previously known as simply Operation Flashpoint 2, Codemasters’ latest modern-day military shooter has been given a full title – Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. The GC also saw the release of a debut trailer.

For those wondering why the game has been subtitled Dragon Rising, Andrew Wafer, Brand Manager at Codemasters, was on hand to give the lowdown.

Set on a vast oil-rich island, located off the eastern coast of Russia, north of Japan, Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising’s fiction occurs during a time of tension between Russia and China over the island’s disputed ownership.

The game will open as Chinese forces launch an offensive and, referencing the title, as the dragon rises over the island, players will find themselves in a situation that is set to flare up into a flashpoint like never before.

The developer assures us that the title will feature authentic and realistically portrayed soldiers, weaponry, and military transportation. The game environment will also stay true to the real-life location, densely packed to create a rich and challenging tactical environment.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will arrive on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC sometime next year.

Pointless “trailer”, not a second of in-game footage.

Flashpoint was great on the PC, particularly for its powerful map creator, but the Xbox version was abysmal - I’m guessing this one won’t be much better.
