We all await GameStar.de to hunt him down and kill him – but such is life, so view often and make a backup .
Posted a few hours ago was the first look video at Co-op Gameplay. It is a excerpt from the longer GameStar.de video and no one in the community seems to have access to. This video is two minutes long, the full version can be found here (pending you have a premium account): Gamestar.de – The video shows combat assaulting a small unwalled base in tall grass. The overall impression from the comments has so far been fairly negative. This video shows medic healing, weapon sway and artillery call in. There has been some screen grabs photos uploaded as well and they are found below.
Stuff.co.nz has released an OFP:DR Preview, it can be read here.
In the preview, the journalists play the radar mission one that is already played by an high amount of game journalists.
According to the previewers, Nature is the true star in Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. The sounds sounds very realistic and convincing, and, even while the version their played is still a beta, the sounds already sound like it’s a final version of the game.
The article closes down with:
“A Gears of War or Killzone clone it is not. For PC owners, the real question here will be whether the numerous fans of the original can be convinced to put down ArmA 2 and sacrifice a bit of realism for something a little less intense.”

We just received word from a Citizen Kained that he is a exhibition stand designer and im on a job at Gamescom in Koln. He tell us about him self and follows into “So, if you have a question or want vid footage of something I can probably get it. I only have my nokia N95 here so footage may not be too good”. Heres your opportunity to get your questions out. He then goes on to tell us about the game
“The game itself is very slick, the aiming / firing feels like youve got to be quite accurate and doesnt feel arcadey at all… however it does feel more fun than ARMA and a quicker pace. They only have the single player mode here but overall I think its something to get excited about.”
