Taking gamers as close to war as they’ll ever want to get, Operation
Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is the much anticipated return of the
genre-defining military conflict simulator. Set to deliver the total
combat experience, Operation Flashpoint 2 will challenge players to
survive the chaos and rapidly evolving situations of modern warfare in
a new contemporary theatre.
Players will experience the intensity, diversity and claustrophobia of
a modern conflict from the unique perspectives of an infantry marine, a
helicopter pilot, a Special Forces officer or a tank commander, each
engaged against the full force of the Chinese PLA on a scale never
previously experienced in a military action title.
Gameplay simulates an immense conflict between advanced forces and
provides unparalleled scope with different military disciplines,
vehicles and equipment for players to utilize.
- Freedom of Play – Operation Flashpoint 2 will give players
the freedom to handle military crisis situations on their initiative.
Unscripted missions will task players with real objectives, such as
laying down covering fire, covering a friendly unit’s retreat or
conducting short-range recon patrol. Armed with cutting edge military
hardware, players will need to balance brute force with intelligent use
of tactics. Once players have completed the campaign, a Mission Editor
enables gamers to create their own single player and multiplayer
- The most realistic modern military conflict game –
Operation Flashpoint 2 features unparalleled levels of realism and
variety of military forces, equipment, weapons and tactics. Fully
loaded weapons and individual ammunition types will be simulated with
detailed ballistic physics, based upon individually-crafted mechanics.
Players will command and control a wide variety of multi-component,
multi-weapon vehicles, including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles,
APCs, attack and utility helicopters. The character damage system
authentically depicts the terrible wounds and injury from modern
weapons to communicate the reality of combat.
- Platoon-Based Combat - As an epic campaign weaves the
narrative, players will fight as infantry soldiers in battle, drive
tanks in armored assaults, pilot helicopters in air strikes, and
infiltrate the enemy in covert special operations utilizing a wide
variety of realistic military weapons from knives and rifles to machine
guns, grenade launchers and laser designators for air strikes. In
whichever role the player chooses, they will experience the fierce and
brutal reality of warfare and the shock and awe of contemporary
firepower unleashed on the arresting scale of modern combat.
- Redefines the Size of Battle - Immense play areas of more
than 135 square miles give players a multitude of tactical decisions on
how to best accomplish missions. Densely packed with environment detail
and objects, valleys, mountains, coastlines, towns, villages and
industrial complexes all combine to deliver a rich and challenging
tactical environment. The world is persistent, so that buildings
destroyed in one campaign mission will be destroyed in the next.
- Stylized Cinematography - Operation Flashpoint 2 will model
the environment, objects and people in realistic detail, but its visual
styling will embrace documentary techniques. The camera work through
cut-scenes will be heavily influenced by television war reports that
are often shot under extreme circumstances delivering a unique look
with incorrect exposure, severe camera shake and loss of focus.
