An Operation Flashpoint: Red River Trailer

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is getting an expandalone/sorta sequal at some point "between April and June" next year! There's a hot new trailer out, and you can watch it below.

At first glance it might seem like a sweaty cache of live-action bravado that tells you little to nothing about the game, but I'm an old hand at this viral video stuff. There's a coded message in this trailer. Just listen to the Johnny Cash song in the background.

There's a man going around taking names
And he decides who to free and who to blame
Every body won't be treated quite the same

There will be a closed beta and you can apply but you might not get in.

There will be a golden ladder reaching down
When the man comes around

The game will be available from digital download services.

Hear the trumpets hear the pipers
One hundred million angels singing
Multitudes are marching to a big kettledrum

Codemasters hasn't released sales figures for Dragon Rising, but I suspect this is their way of saying that it sold 100 million copies. Impressive.

Voices calling and voices crying
Some are born and some are dying
And the whirlwind is in the thorn trees

Red River will feature a whirlwind in some thorn trees (?).

It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks
In measured hundred weight and penny pound
When the man comes around

It is difficult for us to do anything about Dragon Rising's Metacritic average of 76.
