Operation Flashpoint 2 Release Date Announced

opflash1Codemasters today announced that Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, will be shipping on October 6th in North America. I know some of our readers are anticipating this one greatly, but is this one too close to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2? Full Press Release is below:

A truly explosive ‘Armoury’ video, available today from, showcases the devastating effects of the authentic modern weapon systems which gamers can deploy in Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising’s uniquely intense battles. In the video, infantry move in formation and engage in lethal fire-fights with weapons rendered with unprecedented accuracy and featuring full firing and reloading animations, including a Javelin anti-tank guided weapon which destroys its target with stunning force.

Vehicles - which can all be commandeered by the player - are also featured including an AAVP7A1 amphibious assault vehicle which suppresses enemy firing positions, the powerful Abrams M1A2 battle tank and the AH1Z Super Cobra attack helicopter. Finally, a JDAM airstrike on a village shows the epic effects of explosions, with volumetric smoke modelling and dirt and debris thrown hundreds of feet into the air.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will set the new standard for sandbox shooters when it arrives October 6th/8th/9th for the X360, PS3 and the PC.

    This game looks very promising from what I’ve seen. Almost like a Socom/Rainbow Six Vegas mix. The way you can command your squad and flank the enemy. And how you have to patch yourself up with a med kit.
