Codemasters sent word (and a trailer and some screens) that their first DLC pack for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is now available on Xbox Live. The “Skirmish” pack brings with it 4 new maps and two new FTE missions all for 400 Microsoft points. If you’re not willing to shell out the points, there is a free title update available for you as well... let’s just hope it fixes the god awful AI! I digress, for 400 points, you can expect to get all this:

“The ‘Skirmish’ DLC features four new multiplayer maps and two new Fire Team Engagement (FTE) missions featuring both solo and four player co-operative play. Hunt down SAM launchers hidden in the sprawling complex of ‘Lumberyard’ and assault dug in PLA forces and fight room to room in ‘White Fang’, two tense new ‘Infiltration’ multiplayer maps. ‘Annihilation’ multiplayer maps pitch armour and infantry against each other in rolling battles across a valley in ‘Stomping Grounds’ and in ‘Force Dispersal’ military bases separated by a strategic hill become a close-quarters killing ground.”

“New FTE missions include ‘All Round Defence’, which places gamers in control of air support and attack helicopters as they defend a fortified complex against relentless waves of PLA. In ‘Uphill Struggle’ players must capture a bunker under heavy fire from hillside reinforcements. Gamers can also recon the entire 220 km² island of Skira alone or co-operatively in a range of vehicles at day or night in ‘Island Tour.’”

“Taking on board feedback from the Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising community, tomorrow’s title update will include a range of updates and improvements for the multiplayer and single player modes of the game.”

The Skirmish DLC pack is out for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising now. Check out the 14 new "Skirmish" DLC screens here, and check out our review here.

Not bad for 400pts but this game disappointed me with its AI and its horrible squad command controls.

Honestly, it's not a bad game. hell, I've played way worst. And thus far, these are the only glitches I've seen: first, an enemy will suddenly stop firing/moving, second, weapons that disappear/become invisible.

Boycott this shitty DLC that should be free, their patch is a joke as well.

It seems this game is going towards simulation. But it certainly does look fun to play with your friends though.

Oooooooooooo yeah!!! Now that is how a map pack should be.. Full of good quality game material for all modes AND for only 400.. Lets all bend over and let codemasters have there way as they have done a good job!!!

The game was great in my opinion, thoroughly enjoyed it and I'll get it again for the co-op, the dlc is a good price too! Although I agree about the 'Island Tour', exploring the island should be on the disc like they led us to believe it would be.

This game was a steaming dog pile... So many other games are worth playing over this one.

Think I'll buy this when I get home.

There's no achievements.
But who cares when I like the game so much?

Shame the game was riddled with fail. I wanted to the like this game but I rented it and it just didn't quite do it for me. Maybe Operation Failpoint 3 will be better.
