Codemasters blijft doorgaan met hun vooral tactische shooter Operation Flashpoint. Na Dragon Rising maakt Operation Flashpoint: Red River zijn opwachting in het tweede kwartaal van dit jaar. Of deze het succes behaald van de vorige delen, zullen we dus pas later in het jaar weten.

Wel kunnen we alvast een nieuwe trailer bewonderen van Operation Flashpoint: Red River. Hierin wordt onder andere verteld wat er gebeurd en zie je de US Marines gezamelijk Tajikistan binnenvallen. Hieronder de trailer van Operatation Flashpoint: Red River met bijbehorend verhaal.

Set in 2013 in the new location of Tajikistan, the UMSC are sent in to defend American interests threatened by insurgency in the destabilised country. The video follows the Marines’ mission to secure a river dam, a vital part of Tajikistan’s vulnerable infrastructure. As narrator Staff Sergeant Knox informs us, their insurgent enemy is ‘entrenched and determined’ but ‘such an opportunity to win local hearts and minds is always worth a measured risk.’

Marines are shown facing down the insurgents, who fight a guerrilla war from the shadows and use their local knowledge to stage ambushes. Combining the different specialities contained within the four-man Fireteam, Marines sweep through compounds and towns, engaging enemies at close quarters and long range. Reflecting their role in a broader conflict as part of a large expeditionary force, they are shown in action alongside artillery, armour, air-support and additional infantry fireteams.
