Helios confirms that “It’s the intro video to the campaign in the game”. Leading presumption is that the helicopter hitting the screen will play into the SF forces helicopter starting its landing on the island.
Here at OperationFlashpoint2.org we have discovered that there’s a new US Officer by the name of DefenderOne in town.
A Community Officer is a Codemasters employee that provides a level of connection from the CM office workers/developers to the people on the ground in the communities Codemasters runs.
Currently his account is idle, he/she has not spoke since his account was discovered. We are waiting for a formal announcement of his arrival from Helios. We expect that this public announcement will happen on Monday and provide our first look on this new ‘Officer’.
We wish DefenderOne a good time on the OFP2 forums, and we are sure he/she will make a fine addition to the collective team at Codemasters and on the forums. We look forward to working in hand with Defender as we do with Helios.
