Just wanted to let you all know that the Multiplayer PVP video is due for release later today on Gamespot. It’s being uploaded by the US side of the site though, so if you are located in Europe you can expect it sometime late at night (Weds)/Early Morning (Thurs). I’m afraid I can’t really be more specific regarding what time Gamespot are going to upload it so my apologies for that.
Our US team will be making a post on Facebook when the video has been uploaded so make sure to keep an eye out for their update.
The video is also due for release tomorrow from 10am (UK Time) on www.flashpointgame.com
We also have a new multiplayer screengrab for viewers here:
This new interview found by hero member illuminator reveals some new information, mainly that of multiplayer. One of my personal bugbears was the ranking system but it wont be to the extent of unlockables which should be fine for now:
IGN posted up a new preview last night that had a few nice tad bit’s of information on the game itself, these small pieces of information are especially useful for the console players and finally confirms that 4 v 4 is definantely what codemasters seem to be aiming for, for the online play. Fortunantely though we managed to find a quote that has settled a few console players especially that of myself which is:
The Xbox 360 version will be limited to eight players, either in two competing squads of four players each, or two squads of four players each playing cooperatively against six AI squads of PLA soldiers.
On a speculative notion it seems that if the above is true then PC has the possibility of being much the same, 32 player coop anyone? But don’t take my word for this, maybe later on codemasters can confirm the above speculative notion of mine.
Lastly, as for a small piece of information (Al beit a little late):
There are currently no plans for a pre-release demo, but the team at Codemasters is planning to release a multiplayer-only demo on October 26.
(The above quotes are for xbox, PC may have the demo earlier)
