Codemasters has announced Operation Flashpoint: Red River, a follow-up to the sleeper hit, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, which is due out in 2011.
Red River will offer a glimpse into the future with its depiction of a fictional conflict with contemporary geopolitical themes, which will unfold over three distinct acts in both single player and drop-in-drop-out co-operative play for up to four players online. Faced with new counter-insurgency combat and the returning threat of the Chinese PLA, players will feel the tension, brutality and carnage of modern conflict from the perspective of a marine fireteam on deployment in a hostile country thousands of miles from home.
Building extensively on the successes of Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, Red River will bring wide-ranging advancements that include a deeper narrative-led campaign, streamlined inventory and control system, a refined enemy and squad AI system, player class roles including customizable XP upgrades and loadout choice, close-quarters combat, new air support options and comprehensive tutorials.
