Dragon Rising LAN [Updated]

Update: The game will in fact include LAN support. Codemasters clarifies: "Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising does indeed feature LAN play and system link, and the offline MP play Sion Lenton is referring to is splitscreen." Original Story: The Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising interview on Fragland is a brief interview with Sion Lenton about Codemasters' upcoming military shooter. Topics include how long the game has been in development, achieving the depth of a PC game for the console versions, the learning curve, DLC plans, and multiplayer support. As for multiplayer, it sounds like this is another game like StarCraft II that will not support multiplayer over a LAN, as word is: "There will be no offline multiplayer, nor an offline co-op mode. Online you can play the co-op mode with up to four friends."

See this is just disappointing for myself and my brothers.

Being as I'm a uni student while working to pay the bills and my 3 brothers are in highschool it means I buy the games... (4 copies of each game is a nice profit for companies no doubt). However, since we LAN together rather then use the net (why waste bandwidth?) every time a game cancels lan support or skips on a co-op mode it's just a loss on their part.

There is no way they will gain sales by punishing people like me who will buy 4 copies just for tha ability to play it with my brothers.

Starcraft 2 will be bought as 1 copy and shared around for the single player mode only. I was looking forward to this with it's co-op... but no lan means I won't be joining in.
