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.”
