New Operation Flashpoint: Red River Co-Op Trailer Launches

by on April 11, 2011

Codemasters have released a brand new trailer for the latest instalment in their tactical shooter series – Operation Flashpoint. Entitled Operation Flashpoint: Red River, the game focuses on co-operative elements and this new trailer specifically shows off footage from the four-player CSAR Fireteam Engagement mode. This title will be the third game in the Operation Flashpoint series, with previous titles Cold War Crisis and Dragon Rising  published in 2001 and 2009 respectively and going on to become a multi-million selling franchise.

Operation Flashpoint: Red River has been developed around co-operative play, whether in the substantial campaign mode or in standalone Fireteam Engagements. Up to four players stand together in drop-in drop-out online co-op, picking one of the fireteam specialists — Rifleman, Automatic Rifleman, Scout and Grenadier — to combine as a fearsome fighting force. Each player can build XP to unlock weapons, skills and modifications for their class, customising their loadouts to suit their preferred style of play.

The ‘Co-op Search and Rescue’ video focuses on one of four standalone Fireteam Engagement modes, where up to four players come together to complete objectives on their own initiative online. In ‘CSAR’ (Combat Search and Rescue) players must extract allied forces stranded behind enemy lines. ‘Combat Sweep’ missions require gamers to eliminate all hostiles in an area of operations and complete additional objectives including destroying weapons caches. ‘Rolling Thunder’ tasks players to escort a convoy through enemy territory and in ‘Last Stand’ the fireteam must hold off increasingly difficult waves of enemy forces before banking their points and extracting.

Operation Flashpoint: Red River will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on the 21st April 2011 in Europe and 26th April 2011 in North America.
