Operation Flashpoint 2 Details

Codemasters announces new modern day theatre of war for Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising offers a full title and some new details on the upcoming sequel to Bohemia Interactive's first military-themed shooter:

Full title revealed as first video trailer launches at Games Convention 2007. Operation Flashpoint™2: Dragon Rising was today announced as the full title for the return of the leading name in modern military simulation gaming.

Codemasters also revealed an explosive video trailer for the game on its booth (Hall 4, F01) at Games Convention 2007, Leipzig, Germany. The trailer is now available to view and download from www.codemasters.com/flashpoint2

Coming in 2008 for major console platforms and PC, Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising marks the long-awaited return of the total conflict simulator. It will challenge a new generation of players to survive the chaos and rapidly evolving situations of military combat in a new and contemporary theatre.

"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," explains Andrew Wafer, Brand Manager for Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising, at Codemasters.

"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."
As depicted in the trailer, soldiers, weaponry and military transportation will be authentic and realistically detailed. The game environment will be a comprehensive simulation of a real world location, densely packed to create a rich and challenging tactical environment.

Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising is in development at Codemasters Studios utilising an evolved variant of Neon technology, the studio's proprietary middleware. For the trailer video and to sign up for future development briefings, please visit: www.codemasters.com/flashpoint2

Perhaps, but keep in mind that ArmA has more differences over OFP than GRAW 2 over GRAW 1.

While on one level it's OFP1.5, on another we routinely get "sequel" games that differ by far less.

Madden anyone?

Is the video mirrored anywhere yet? I'm feeling cranky today and I refuse to register with CM just to download a stupid mpeg.

I always had the most fun with the map editor that was reasonably easy to use. You could always come up with some really crazy stuff in your own personal missions. I really should get the original out.

Lets be honest ARMA is not OFP2, its more like OFP 1.5. The devs said as much.

How could the owners of the OFP name come out with another one and why?

Franchise milking?

I suspect this game will be dumbed down/consolized.

OFP 2 is already out. It's called Armed Assault and it plays exactly like OFP did, (with major upgrades across the board), because it's made by the same people. How could the owners of the OFP name come out with another one and why?

Awesome. So many good titles being announced and released....

Rev. Norb: I'd just like to say that four for a dollar Tijuana tacos seemed like a good idea at the time. Please pass the toilet paper.

Sigh, can we please get a moratorium on using the word "rising" in game titles?
