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…

WIN: Core i7 Processor, Via Codies & Intel

Intel have supplied a rather splendid chip for one lucky RPS reader to build their next PC around. And that's not all. Those splendid fellows at Codemasters are giving away a whole bunch of Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising goodies too. Read on for complete details of what you can win, how to enter, and other relevant details.

OpFlash: Dragon Rising Demo

A single-mission demo for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising has been released, and it can apparently be played single player and online with chums. Codies explain: "As part of a Special Forces squad inserting behind Chinese PLA lines, players must eliminate a strategically critical radar station and missile sites to allow the USS Iwo Jima, carrying the main USMC battalion, to safely approach the island of…

Still No Sign Of That Dragon

I've alt-tabbed out of a game so I can write this post. It looks suspiciously like an unreleased military shooter. Hmm. Perhaps I'm playing it with a view to writing a critical analysis of its workings in the near future? Who can say! In entirely unrelated news, I've just spotted a new trailer for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, which just happens to be released in…

Fog Of Phwoar: OpFlash Tech Clevers

There's an element of military titillation in this latest Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising trailer (below), with the development team get a bit hyperbolic about smoke, impact effects, environmental detail and visual feedback for the player in this contemporary soldier game. I've seen the game running on PC a couple of times during its development, and it has impressed me each time, particularly with these battlefield…

Operation Flashpoint Multiplayer Trailer, Screens

Only about three more weeks until Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising appears. Unless it slips again. But presuming it doesn't, you can finally find out whether it's better or worse than ARMA 2 on October 9th. In the meantime there's a new video that apparently demonstrates the head-to-head multiplayer mode, showing how you can take control of either a USMC or Chinese PLA troop and then…

Operation Flashpoint: Hardcore And Vehicular

(Which is a much better subtitle than Dragon Rising, I think.) Following up on my interview with producer Sion Lenton from last week, I thought I'd better catch up on the Operation Flashpoint 2 footage. The first piece is particularly illustrative of the sort of thing Lenton was talking about, as it shows off "hardcore mode", in which the game removes all HUD elements and…

RPS Interview: Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

A few weeks back I went to see Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising at Codemasters HQ. While I was there I had a chat with executive producer Sion Lenton, who had quite a lot to say about Codemasters' take new on the military shooter. What follows is my transcript of that conversation, in which Lenton talks about the balance of realism in the game, the "documentary"…

Hat-Off: Lunatic Flashpoint 2 Special Edition

The Modern Warfare 2 Ultro-Nerd Edition famously comes with a pair of functioning night-vision goggles, and now it seems the Uber-Geek Edition of Codemaster's not-actually-Operation-Flashpoint-2-is-it Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising will come similarly laden with head-mounted silliness. Specifically, a full-size army helmet that's roughly 48 million times larger than the game CD itself. What next - Mafia 2 Special Edition, complete with freshly-severed real horse's…

Choose Your War: Op Flash 2 & ArmA II Trailers

In the great Operation Flashpoint 2 Vs. ArmA II debate, I'll tell you which side I come down on. I'm on [the opposite side to you]. I can't believe you think the other game is the better one! What about all the inevitable problems with AI?! It's so unrealistic in your game that you can run so far/reload so quickly, and it's just ludicrous that…

Operation Flashpoint 2 Delayed, Trailer

Operation Flashpoint 2 has now been pushed back to the Autumn, apparently to give the team more time on improving the player experience. This announcement arrived along with a new trailer, and a comment from Codies executive producer Sion Lenton, who had this to say about the game's island territory: "Skira makes for an immense and, with the latest visual pass, a magnificent battlefield; we’re…

OpFlash: Dragon Rising Preview On EG

I had a look at Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising the other day, and then happened upon the notion of writing down what I saw and publishing it on an international gaming website. And so it came to be that Eurogamer has a couple of thousand words of details as well as interviewy gobbets with lead AI man, Clive Lindop. It goes,"First and foremost, the scale…

In German: OpFlash 2 Footage

EDIT: Footage gone now. Boo.Hyper-dynamic newsblog VG247 found this, and it seems to be footage from some kind of GameStar TV show? Anyway, the narration is in German, but some kindly soul has added English subtitles to it. The game sure is fancy lookin', although it's still something of an unknown quantity in terms of the soldier-sim-ness of it all. Expect the game to arrive…

Bohemia: There’s Only One Real Flashpoint Sequel

And it's ArmA2. This is fascinating. The situation where a developer keeps the technology and the publisher gets the name is common enough. There's always obvious competition between the keeper of the flame and the keeper of the name (e.g. Football Manager versus Championship Manager, Far Cry 2 versus Crysis, etc). But Bohemia, in a recent press-release, have made that incredibly explicit. To quote the…

OpFlash 2: (Very) Wobblecam Footage

The Firstlook 2008 games event took place in Amsterdam last saturday and a few interesting materials are emerging. One is the Operation Flashpoint 2 presentation which PS3Life.nl have up on their site, and I've embedded after the jump. Despite the rather wobbly camera action it does demonstrate the impressive level of detail in the forthcoming soldier sim. As we've mentioned many times before, it's no…
