Operation Flashpoint: Red River Trailer

By Rebecca Smith, 8 years ago
Closely following the release of yesterday's screenshots, a teaser video has now been posted for Operation Flashpoint: Red River, with Johnny Cash providing the soundtrack:

In case you're unable to view the video at work, a detailed description of the video was also released:

Taking viewers to the new setting of Tajikistan, two CH 53E Super Stallion helicopters carrying US Marines swoop along the Vakhsh River, showing the beautiful and epic landscapes which will become bloody battlegrounds in a deadly flashpoint. As one Marine films the unfolding action on his digital video camera, hostiles attack the helicopters, forcing evasive action and return fire from the rear gunners.

Inside the transports, the full fireteam — Grenadier, Scout, Rifleman and Automatic Rifleman — prepare for combat. Wearing battle-worn kit with field modifications, the Marines go through their own personal routine — checking weapons are locked and loaded, praying with Rosary beads or listening to music on their MP3 player. Every Marine gets ready for war their own way. The video concludes as the fireteam are inserted into the combat zone. For the Marines, this flashpoint is about to turn hot.
The game is due for release in Q2 2011.
