This a Update on the New hands-on information delayed to next week news story.
I talked to Helios today about hands on information that was previously intended to be released last week (and was subsequently was postponed for internal review). It was hopeful that the hands on information (that was coming in the form of text and possibly pictures) would be released this week, but that is no longer the case.
Great news though, the reason behind this is that Codemasters’ is now rolling Helios‘ hands on with a great amount of new content, to create a thick new OFP2 Promo. It looks like from what what I hear, text and other media content. It’s being created at the caliber of a “official promotional release”, however It is unknown exactly what is in the promo. With at title I expect it to be good; as I have been told it’s has a large amount of worth while content, as well this release is expected also to go to major media sites. So we should see a massive quality increase as it jumps from a ‘community promotional release’ to a “official promotional release”.
It is expected sooner then later this month. No official date has been given to the public. The postponement is now is due the creation and acquiring of “other media” content for the promo.
On a side note, this will also be a good first look of what Codemasters advertisement department style and what is considered a larger release. This will also perhaps mark the start of the promised ‘Advertisement Blitz’ leading into OFP2’s release – Fingers Crossed!
