Codemasters has now issued the official press release announcing Operation Flashpoint: Red River, the upcoming third game in the military shooter franchise. This game is supposedly being build around four-player co-op gameplay although it will still have a single player mode.
Set in the country of Tajikistan, the game centers on a group of US Marines that will deal with a threat from the Chinese PLA. The game will feature three "acts" that can be played in single player or in "drop in-drop out" co-op play. Look for improved AI, a better inventory system, player class roles, XP unlocks and more. The game is due out in 2011. By the way the image you see above is not an in-game screenshot but merely a "target visual" that Codemasters wants to reach for the game.
