News: The PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 shooter is scheduled for a 2011 release.

Codemasters has announced they'll be returning to the world of counterterrorism on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011 with Operation Flashpoint: Red River. Set in "the remote yet beautiful country of Tajikistan along the Vakhsh River," Red River promises to "deliver an authentic and intensely personal US Marine Corps infantryman experience."

Taking a small step into the future, Red River depicts a fictional conflict with contemporary geopolitical themes, which will unfold over three distinct acts in both single player and drop-in-drop-out co-operative play for up to four players online. Faced with new counter-insurgency combat and the returning threat of the Chinese PLA, players will feel the tension, brutality and carnage of modern conflict from the perspective of a marine fireteam on deployment in a hostile country, thousands of miles from home.

The game will also include additional mutliplayer modes that will test players' tactics and teamwork in distinct ways such as "escorting a convoy to safety under heavy fire, or falling back from the enemy against almost insurmountable odds."

Codemasters has taken the criticism that Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising received to heart. The publisher has promised to include a wide-ranging set of new features in Red River including:

  • A deeper narrative-led campaign
  • Streamlined inventory and control system
  • A refined enemy and squad AI system
  • Player class roles including customisable XP upgrades and loadout choice
  • Close-quarters combat
  • New air support options
  • Comprehensive tutorials

    ?In creating Operation Flashpoint: Red River, we're building on our strengths whilst taking on board feedback from the community and focussing on key areas and enhancements to further refine the Flashpoint experience,? said Adam Parsons, Executive Producer. ?Whether playing solo or co-operatively, players will experience the tense and exhilarating tactical gameplay the series is famed for, expressed through a range of gameplay enhancements and an exciting new setting and narrative.?

    We'll have more soon.
