has released a new trailer for Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising
, revealing the sheer scale of the game: the 220km2 island of Skira, located off the eastern coast of Russia, north of Japan. As an epic campaign weaves the narrative, Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising will give players the freedom to handle military crisis situations on their initiative. Unscripted missions will task players with real objectives, such as laying down suppressing fire, covering a friendly unit’s retreat or conducting short-range recon patrol. Players will fight as infantry soldiers in battle, drive tanks in armoured assaults, pilot helicopters in air strikes and infiltrate the enemy in covert special operations utilising a wide variety of realistic military weapons from knives and rifles to machine guns, grenade launchers and laser designators for air strikes. Whatever the situation, players will need to balance brute force with intelligent use of tactics in their engagement against the full force of the PLA. In development at Codemasters Studios
, Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising will hit the store shelves in 2009, for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Six new screenshots
