The Operation Flashpoint series will continue next year with Red River.
Codemasters has announced the newest chapter in its tactical shooter franchise will build on the success of last year’s Dragon Rising and is in development for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
In addition to the single-player campaign, the new game will have a strong focus on co-operative gameplay with a drop-in/drop-out system that caters for up to four players online.
The new campaign is set in Tajikistan and pits players against the returning threat of the Chinese PLA. New and enhanced features include an XP system that unlocks new weapon upgrades, close-quarters combat, new air support options and refined AI.
The game’s executive producer Adam Parsons said: “In creating Operation Flashpoint: Red River, we’re building on our strengths whilst taking on board feedback from the community and focussing on key areas and enhancements to further refine the Flashpoint experience.
“Whether playing solo or co-operatively, players will experience the tense and exhilarating tactical gameplay the series is famed for, expressed through a range of gameplay enhancements and an exciting new setting and narrative.”
