Operation Flashpoint: Red River Biography Trailer

By Keith Gray, 6 years ago
Codemasters has released a new trailer described as "the first in a series of gameplay biographies introducing key players...", for upcoming title Operation Flashpoint: Red River, the sequel to tactical shooter Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

Operation Flashpoint: Red River will feature Staff Sergeant Damien Knox and his Marine fireteam as they battle insurgents across Tajikistan:



For those of you who cannot view the video, Codemasters has provided a description of the battlefield action:

The trailer demonstrates some of the wide range of combat scenarios which players will encounter in the game’s diverse new battlefield of Tajikistan, with Knox’s narration detailing his personal take on the conflict. From defending bases to sweeping through mountains, villages and towns to flush out entrenched enemies, Knox and his Marine Fireteams are shown engaging insurgents at range and close-quarters, supported by ground and air support. In an awesome display of power, A10 bombers are shown obliterating an insurgent stronghold with a strafing bombing run before the marines sweep in
As well as snippets from Knox's narrative:

Tajikistan is a tricky place... I tell my men all the time, I’m not a Doctor but I am in the lifesaving business. It’s my responsibility to use the knowledge that I have gained to help my marines accomplish their mission with honour and leave here in one piece
The quote in the first sentence of this article may suggest that this trailer is the first gameplay footage of Operation Flashpoint: Red River, but that is not the case, as you can see here.

As if all that wasn't enough, several new screenshots have also been released today:
