Operation Flashpoint: Red River tells me that I’m a slick sonofabitch, commanding three other slick sonofabitch marines. It tells me loudly, repeatedly, and gratingly – via the mouth of staff sergeant Shouty McRacist – that I’m a Spartan and a devil dog, and all those other ultramacho things that make me feel terribly uncomfortable because I haven’t seen combat.
I’m bleeding out. I’m bleeding out because I’m an idiot. Operation Flashpoint: Red River can be played alone, but that's not how you're supposed to fight a war. The campaign and multiplayer modes are crafted around four players working together as a Fire Team, endeavouring to complete an objective and win a war. This means I’m not the only one to blame for my current situation, but being the Fire Team leader means I’ve got to shoulder the lion’s share. Me and my plucky sidekicks aren't playing the campaign. We’re trying our hand at the standalone co-op missions; a mix of offensive and defensive, rescue and escort game modes that run as a compliment to the main story. The one I’m bleeding out in? That’s Last Stand, and our performance wasn’t anywhere near as heroic as that moniker might lead you to believe.
Codemasters have released a new trailer for Operation Flashpoint: Red River, revealing the narrative campaign component of the game. It contains exactly what you'd expect of the tactical shooter, with Marines hiding in cover and gunning down AK-wielding targets with a variety of military hardware. You can find the Entry Into Tajikistan trailer below.
Eurogamer have posted system specs for Codemaster's (whatever you do don't call it as sim) military shooter, Operation Flashpoint: Red River. Click more for the breakdown, and to watch the new "Taking The Hit" trailer. There's about three military simul... shooter's worth of bloom in there, but I'm not complaining.
Codemasters have released the first in a series of developer's video diaries from the Operation Flashpoint: Red River team. Read on for details of the game and the video.
One of the many mistakes of Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising was that it was too caught up in the desensitised, intricate recreation and simulation of war. It focused on getting the bullet physics right, making sure that when a tank fired it rocked back just so. It forgot that these conflicts are fought by real people, not automatons. Codemasters are trying to fix this, trying to provide, with Operation Flashpoint: Red River, a ‘personal vision of conflict’.
Codemasters have announced that Operation Flashpoint: Red River will be coming out on Apri 21 in Europe and April 26 in the US. There will be a ten mission campaign with four player co-op support and a new co-op last stand mode called Fireteam Engagements, where up to four players must defend a downed helicopter from waves of incoming enemies. For more OpFlash action, check out the latest trailer, or head over to the official Operation Flashpoint: Red River site.
NEW. TRAILER. FRONT. CENTRE. The latest Operation Flashpoint: Red River video gives us some good old fashioned in-game footage, full of military man-blasting and barked tactical commands. For more on the classes and weapons we'll be playing with when the game comes out on April 26, have a look at our Operation Flashpoint: Red River preview.
The Operation Flashpoint: Red River team head to the nearest warehouse to tell us all about the game's drop-in, drop-out co-op mode in their latest dev diary. They also chat about the four co-op game modes, including convoy escort, last stand, combat sweep and combat search and rescue, in which you must head behind enemy lives to rescue downed helicopter pilots. For more on the game, check out our interview with Operation Flashpoint's creative director, or check out the official Operation Flashpoint: Red River site. The game's due out on April 21 in Europe, and June 7 in the US.
Codemasters have thrown out 12 exceedingly pretty screens for Operation Flashpoint: Red River. You may have spotted a few of them in our Operation Flashpoint: Red River preview, but a few more have been released as well. The engine seems to be good at two things in particular: huge environments and sunsets. It might be sensible to use the cover of darkness, but it'd be worth launching attacks early to see those blazing evening skies. Also featured: men with guns, running, and shooting.
Operation Flashpoint: Red River creative director doesn't "get much fun out of military simulations"
Operation Flashpoint: Red River's creative director, Sion Lenton, thinks military simulations are “immersive” and “realistic” but not necessarily “fun.” Speaking to PC Gamer, Sion directed gamers yearning for an accurately simulated warzone towards Bohemia Interactive's ArmA series, and claimed that PC is “Not the market to be in.” Ooo-rah indeed.
Earlier this month we reported on some controversial quotes from an interview with Sion Lenton, creative director on Operation Flashpoint: Red River. He spoke to PC Gamer about the current state of PC gaming, the importance of realism, and the new direction that Codemasters are taking the franchise. We are now able to post the entire transcript for your reading pleasure.
It's Codemasters turn to flaunt their goods on Humble's digital sale shelf. Seven games, including various DiRTs, Overlords and Operation Flashpoints, have been bundled together, in a genre mash-up that has tiny imps erratically driving rally cars away from hyper-efficient snipers. Okay, so it's not that - it's the more traditional bundle of games collected for a pay-what-you-want price. It's a good package, specifically for the quirky Overlord series, the excellent DiRT 3, and the kinda-fun DiRT Showdown. Unfortunately, the bundle does still necessitate a warning. With GfW Live's rumoured July 1st shutdown, both Operation Flashpoint: Red River and DiRT 3 could potentially stop working. While Codemasters have confirmed that DiRT 3 will be getting the Steamworks treatment, they've made no comment on their plans for Red River.
'Tis the season! On the first day of a planned 10-day sale, Steam has cut deep into the prices of a ton of PC games. Today's highlight is the recently released The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for $33.50, but if you've already got that, how about Dawn of War II: Retribution for $15, or Operation Flashpoint: Red River for $30? EA's Medal of Honor has hit that magic $10 price point where it might be worth grabbing just to see if it's as "meh" as you'd heard, and if you somehow don't already own Oblivion Game of the Year edition, it's less than $7. Valve's games are all 33% off for the entirety of the sale, so if you held off getting Portal 2 until now, or want to get a buddy in on the co-op for cheap, you can do so for $33.50. What're you picking up first? Let us know in the comments. Edit: And yes, you can also win prizes by earning in-game achievements. Today's roster is Beat.Trip.Beat, DoW2: Retribution, Lead and Gold, AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, Toki Tori, and Swords and Soldiers HD.
Today on PCGamer.com, we charted the rise of a new star on the StarCraft 2 scene, took a holiday on Dead Island, launched a Rift free weekend pass giveaway, and then maximised the new Prey 2 concept art, and pressed our faces against our monitors until we felt as though we were in THE FUTURE. But what else lies in THE FUTURE? A list, that's what. A list of everything interesting that's been happening in the world of PC gaming today, no less. Read on for Ken Levine's thoughts on sex in games, news of a Mass Effect anime film and a video showing off Rage's weapons.
Josh, Dan, Evan, Anthony, and Lucas believe they're recording just another podcast in just another average recording studio. But in reality, Aperture Science is bathing the room in radiation to test out their new Superhero mutation program! Will it work? Will Dan grow a third arm to battle crime as The Arm of the Law? Will Evan finally get the built-in, mind-controlled jetpack he's always dreamed of, and rightly deserves? At the very least, the radiation seems to have affected some of their judgments (Josh, we're looking at you and your opinion of Super Meat Boy). Join us as we talk about all the big news swirling around Portal 2, Battlefield 3 pre-order incentives, your listener questions and more! PC Gamer US Podcast 269: Portals Party
World of Warcraft patch 4.2 has landed! It brings with it free play up till level 20 and a whole host of changes, including the ability to re-order your characters, which has made Josh happy. It's all been too much for poor Tim though, and he seems to have relapsed. He's not even using a keyboard any more, he just attaches a USB port to his wrist and pipes the game directly into his veins. Check inside for less addictive news.
Commander Shepard dominates our cover this month, unleashing the kind of stare that should send all of Earth's would-be attackers running to the far edges of the solar system. It's so intense it's quite hard to look at for more than a few moments. Go on, try it. See? He's incredibly angry because this month we infiltrated Bioware and stole six pages worth of Mass Effect 3 secrets for our preview. Braving Shepard's wrath was just one of the dangers we encountered putting together Issue 227. Discover the others below.
We've been itching to let you know how good Dragon Age 2 is for ages. Now it's finally out in the US, we can tell you all about it. Check out Rich's review to find out exactly how Bioware gets it right for the sequel. In other news, five words: Authentic. Russian. Cosmonaut. Monkey. Zombies. Remember when Call of Duty was serious game about serious men scowling at each other, beating up suspects and trying to avoid nuclear war? Black Ops is determined to lighten the mood a little, they even staged a sing song at the Berlin Wall. When it comes to not taking yourself seriously, Saints Row is the master. Saints Row: The Third sounds as though it's going to be even barmier than it's predecessors, which can only be a good thing. Anyhow, that's enough zombie monkeying around, it's time to amass all of today's PC gaming news into one handy list.
