On the heels of a UK-based event reveal, Codemasters has announced a new entry in the Operation Flashpoint franchise, subtitled Red River. But unlike others, the focus of the simulation FPS will be on its four-player co-op campaign.

According to Codemasters, Red River will usher in a host of enhancements over the previous title, Dragon Rising. It's a list that includes new class roles, customizable upgrades, better inventory management, and smarter AI. 

Red River is set in a modern world and is poised to feature a narrative-led campaign that pits the US Marine Corps against the Chinese PLA along the Vakhsh River. Drop-in and drop-out co-op during this campaign is being positioned as a key feature for the overall compliment that the game itself is "being built around," according to creative director Sion Lenton in a statement.

“In creating Operation Flashpoint: Red River, we’re building on our strengths whilst taking on board feedback from the community and focusing on key areas and enhancements to further refine the Flashpoint experience,” executive producer Adam Parsons said in a statement. Good to know, considering Dragon Rising wasn't the best Flashpoint experience thus far.

Never got around to really playing Dragon Rising.  Popped it in the Xbox one time, and I felt like I was overwhelmed by it, so I just skipped it.  Might need to check it out for reals one of these days.

All they need to do to get me excited is to take out the "Operation Flashpoint"ness of the game.

I pretty much did the same, carried out a few missions, tried to go back to it, forgot all the controls, and just felt overwhelmed, I do like the game from what I've played, just getting into it though.

Dragon Rising was actually a heck of a lot of fun once you got into it. No other game gave me the same kind of tactical experience.

I'm on board with the tactical approach. MAG starts to  feel close, but that rarely lasts long, before everyone goes into a free-for-all. I miss the days of Rainbow Six, where I got to map out my whole assault ahead of time.

I found the game engaging as well, kind of like ArmA2 light only I could actually run Dragon Rising where I couldn't really run ArmA2 very well.

Dragon Rising was horrible, I will stick to Arma 1+2 for my milsim needs.  Codemasters can only develop decent racing games these days it seems.

I was tempted to pick up the last one, but in the end I couldn't justify it, realistic shooters probably aren't the biggest draw for me. I'm always willing to be converted though.

looking forward to this instalment.

More concept art/target render "screenshots". Good to see they're sticking with the same bullshit marketing campaign. Not to hard too extrapolate the same bullshit end product.
 
NO PVP (!)
NO flying Helicopters
NO playing as medic
 
Get ready for the most realistic war simulator ever™ !

Cool, it will be nice to see how this one turns out.  I quite enjoyed playing Dragon Rising co-op with friends.  I just hope this one is a bit better and the enemies don't soak up bullets like they did in DR.

Would you say that ArmA II and it's standalone expansion are worth the $50 bucks they're bundled for on Steam?  I'm seriously considering getting them.  I played the demos of both, and liked them very much.

OF is a classic game. Dragon Rising is not Operation Flashpoint. They merely bought the name and then delivered a cheap mess of a game that can only be described as a parody of OF.

Man  Dragon Rising was so bad, it tried to be Modern warfare but still pretend to be Operation Flashpoint, but it just ripped out what made the first game.. the first game, it like Codemasters just took a big dump over it's legacy and decided "heck let's put out a broken ass game so we can sell some copies to people who still want an operation flashpoint game"
 
Wonder how Red River will hold up. My hopes ain't high.

Hopefully it won't control like a ball shattering truck load of ass on the PC like Dragon Rising does.

I actually found Dragon Rising to be not bad, and somehwat easier to get into the whole realism shooter than Arma 2 was so a sequel is good news.

The only thing making Dragon Rising interesting enough to be playable was the mission editor for the PC version. Codemasters take on the was simulator is pure bullshit compared to Bohemia's ArmA. IK shouldn't really say anything without having seen any gameplay from this game yet, but I fear the worst.

Dragon Rising had some potential but the terrible AI shifting from godlike snipers to cardboard cutouts and the multiplayer that boasted a whole 4 players (on consoles) in maps a square mile in size hampered nearly every attempt at getting joy from it.  If they aren't willing to come out with information suggesting that the MP will have player populations over 12 or that the campaign structure is more diverse with less AI irregularities I wouldn't try the demo if they paid me.

It truly was, played some and just couldn't stand the irritations that came with the bugs. Hoping for something better this time.

The first Operation Flashpoint was crippled with bugs, bad graphics, wonky controls, and overall just sucking. I know it was supposed to be a SIM shooter, but Codemasters seriously could've made the game a lot more accessible and clean. 
HOPEFULLY, this one's a lot better.
