Gamespy: Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Hands-on Preview

“I didn’t like ArmA, and I never played the original Operation Flashpoint. Now that I’ve said that, you’ve either left because you’re a hardcore military sim fan, or you’ve stuck around because you’re a reasonable person who realizes that you’re about to read the thoughts of someone who probably doesn’t share your idea of fun. Or maybe I do, and you’ll share in my dismay at what I played when I recently went hands-on with Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising.

Gamerzines

Unsure if this is a fake preview but if not it has a very nice piece of information on the page itself, it seems they have managed to grab themselves a piece of the download pie and got a small piece of information based on the multiplayer modes previously unknown to us:

“Page seems to have been taken down but it was claiming that there are two new multiplayer modes in the works for release as DLC”

Discussion

#Edit:

Though media connections we can confirm this is not fake. Thanks Atheistium

#Edit:

Follow up leads to this message from the writer.

“The original article posted at GamerZines.com makes no mention of a further two multiplayer modes being released as free downloadable content. It describes the modes already included in the final game and, going by information provided to the media by Codemasters, speculates that further multiplayer modes may be released as downloadable content post-release.”
– Dave Scammell

I have not seen the post in question. So I’ll leave this up for Tyrokiller (original poster) to correct this message. Such is the fate with breaking news, as such no big issue – It’s how it rolls.

#Edit:

Found link to (newer?) working copy: http://www.gamerzines.com/ps3/news/dragon-rising-multiplayer-dlc.html

Video gamer flashpoint interview

Found by Dk3DKnight earlier today was an interview which seemed to outline a few nice small pieces of information, none of which are massively effective but we do seem to have a small snippit (Below) which “could” and I repeat could mean they are still considering making a map editor for the consoles:

VideoGamer.com: What’s the latest on the mission editor? As far as I’m aware it’s PC only. Is there any chance it might come to the console versions as well?

TB: “It’s something we made a decision about a long time ago when we realised how difficult it was on the console. Never say never, but it’s a very tricky point.”

I’ll repeat that:

TB: In that respect, yep, it is a bit of a niggly point that the console gamers are annoyed with. Unfortunately it’s something we can’t do anything about at the moment. But never say never.

Still take as a pinch of salt but we can still cross our fingers and hope.

12/08/09 – Rock Paper Shotgun Interview with Sion Lenton

A new shotgun interview was found by Helios our so beloved community manager today to which:

Discussion

Interview

“A few weeks back I went to see Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising at Codemasters HQ. While I was there I had a chat with executive producer Sion Lenton, who had quite a lot to say about Codemasters’ take new on the military shooter. What follows is my transcript of that conversation, in which Lenton talks about the balance of realism in the game, the “documentary” feel, the horror of war, and responsibility of making a serious war game accessible to the majority of gamers.”

Alms for the poor? You can now Donate for OFP:DR Growth.

As requested by a few members of the official community, I have made a way for donation to be made towards the growth of OFP2.

pixel Alms for the poor? You can now Donate for OFP:DR Growth.

This button will allow you to donate any amount. All money will be used to grow OFP:DR and the community around it. No money goes to personal use and this is not affiliated with Codemasters other then the level of involvement, I and Helios have with promoting OFP:DR. Please donate gloriously and often, support your fellow members that donate so it’s a mutual strive for community wealth and prosperity.

Cannot donate?
Don’t worry. Always remember wealth is not purely though money. Promote the community services like the Toolbar and the Mailing list on new websites and you’ll help the community grow just as much as a prize will. Your fellow fans will thank you for your support.

Another preview found

Found today is another preview for OFP2. This review is similar to the previews seen thus far. Unique to this write up is a nice perspective that is clear of marketing and flowery writing. It speaks of urban combat and the more ‘arcade’ but dynamic nature of OFP2.

Eurogamer – Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Preview

This morning gaming website “Eurogamer” have posted up their Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising preview, revealing plenty of new information regarding how the game is going to turn out.

Here’s a few choice quotes from the article:

“One of the group playing discovers the implications of this all too clearly, as his bold plan to drive erratically at the enemy, shooting wildly, doesn’t go down very well with his AI team. “**** this ****!” shouts one, before retreating and leaving our hapless player to deal with the aftermath of his rash actions alone.”

“When we finally get to sit down and see the latest PC build, the wisdom of this two-pronged control scheme becomes clear. The quick-command menu is great for reacting to the battlefield on the fly, the available options changing to reflect whatever you’re looking at”

“There’s no doubt that it’s an impressive undertaking. After he’s spent some time scampering around this corner of the island, Lenton calls up the map and zooms out so we can see the scale of the place. The area he’d been playing in covers maybe one square centimetre in the lower-right-hand corner. It’s vast, and full of procedurally generated elements to boot. Smoke and dust lingers rather than fading away.”

Minor update to OFP2 homepage.

Nothing tremendously important however the Official Operation Flashpoint 2 website has made some updates. Their gallery has been raised to 25 screens. As well in all territories apart from the US, the Grenade/Scar/Javelin videos have been uploaded as well. All these screenshots and videos are currently old by our standards, however it is good to see they are still thinking about their homepage.

OFP penned for ‘Summer’ release?

operationflashpoint2a OFP penned for Summer release?

Speculation coming out of Codemasters today in regards to the OFP2 release date. Reported today at VG247.com:

Codemasters got a little more specific on the release date of Operation Flashpoint 2 this morning, telling VG247 the sequel will release this summer.

“Flashpoint is currently slated officially as “Summer 2009,” said a rep, adding that the firm couldn’t be “any more precise than that right now.”

The game was down for a “2009″ date up to now.

The military sim was fully announced last year. It was originally planned for “winter” 2008, but was moved into 2009 in July.

Codemasters itself is developing the game, after dropping Bohemia Interactive, the creator of the first title.

Site is closed

Thanks for all the support and memories!

Due to the death of OFP: DR, this website is closed and will be disabled and taken down in piecemeal over time.

It’s a shame it has come to this but it’s the combined outcome of many failures. I hope to see all of you on the other side – lets hope for a realism revolution in the future.
