Operation Flashpoint Marching In

Codemasters announces a new tactical shooter that is on track for early next year.


Codemasters has revealed that Operation Flashpoint will join the burgeoning tactical shooter genre. Operation Flashpoint is similar in concept to games such as Ripcord's SpecOps and NovaLogic's Delta Force; it puts the player in the role of an exiled Soviet citizen that has become a NATO private charged with a peacekeeping mission in the Cold War-era Soviet Union. The game will feature both a solo campaign and multiplayer missions, and it will let the player choose to play from either a first-person or a third-person perspective. Operation Flashpoint will also include a mission editor that will save custom missions in a small and easy-to-download format.

Developed by Prague-based Bohemia Interactive, the game was previously known as Flashpoint 1985: Status Quo. Operation Flashpoint is scheduled for release early next year.
