20 Comments

The Operation Flashpoint series has been around for more than nine years, but publisher Codemasters has traditionally spaced out new releases over a number of years. There was a four-year gap between the launch of Cold War Crisis in 2001 and Elite in 2005, and then another four years between Dragon Rising in 2009.

Thankfully, fans of the series will have a shorter wait for the latest entry in the series, as Codemasters today confirmed that Red River will be arriving in stores worldwide in April. The game will launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on April 26 in the US, while it will land slightly earlier in Europe on April 21.

Codemasters has also issued more details about the game itself. The 10-mission campaign will be playable by up to four players in co-op, while a new Fireteam Engagements mode will present skirmishes for up to four players, including one where players face waves of enemies and another where they extract marines from a downed helicopter.
