GC: Op Flashpoint 2 - first trailer, new screens

Codemasters rolls out new media from its military sim sequel

The original Operation Flashpoint military sim, as we all know, proved a big hit on PC and now Codemasters is beavering away on the official sequel.

The first Op Flashpoint 2 trailer has been released, along with new 'screenshots' - which are actually taken from the trailer.

Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising - to give the sequel its full name - is set on an oil-rich island located off the eastern coast of Russia, north of Japan. "The defining feature of Operation Flashpoint 2 will be the scale of the warfare, which will be unprecedented in first-person shooters," Codemasters has promised.

It's due on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 next year.
