Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is Going Hardcore

[ ?posts_id=2479332&dest=-1]

Remember Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare by Infinity Ward? Was it really that long ago that IW was shipping out its polished addition to the Call of Duty series that ushered the series into the Modern era? Call of Duty 4, with its hardcore mode revolutionizing the FPS genre, was an instant hit. So is it wrong for another developer to take that success and pour it into their new game?

Well it appears that Codemasters will take their long awaited sequel to the Operation Flashpoint series and add some of the clever features Infinity Ward added to their sequel in order to match the numbers that IW sold. Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, developed by Codemasters, will see a new “hardcore”-type mode added similar to the one Modern Warfare featured.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is scheduled to be available on October 6 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

E3 09:Microsoft E3 Press Conference reveals Modern Warfare 2 Gameplay

Modern Warfare 2
With almost everyone expecting to see Infinity Ward’s hot title Modern Warfare 2, its no surprise that Microsoft debuted Modern Warfare 2’s first gameplay at their E3 2009 conference today.

After Jason West of Infinity Ward appeared on-stage it was down to business, starting up Modern Warfare 2, and showing the first ever gameplay to the public. Starting off on the side of a cliff with a familiar face, “Soap” McTavish guides you across a thin ledge. Soap digs his picks into the side of the mountain and starts to climb, signaling for you to follow. Once at the top, McTavish nearly slips when a plane flies overhead but manages to pull himself over the edge.

Gamespot UK’s Guy Cocker states “The level of detail was incredible: The ice cracks under pressure as you plunge in your hook, and your clothing blows in the vicious mountain winds.”

The game skips to a snowy naval base in which the player has an interesting weapon new to the series. With an attached radar to seek out enemies, the player can use his gun to navigate and seek out enemies in an already minimal-visibility setting.

McTavish instructs you to plant C4 on the fueling station and let it blow. As soon as the explosion is seen, enemies chase you and McTavish out with snowmobiles. McTavish makes a great move and uses a knife to steal an oncoming enemy on a snowmobile, with which both of you grab a snowmobile a head down the hill. While on the snowmobile, you have the option to use a semiautomatic pistol to shoot enemies while driving.

With Modern Warfare 2 looking very impressive so far, what can we expect the final product to look and play like?

Microsoft also announced that two Modern Warfare 2 map packs will arrive first for a time-exclusive on Xbox Live, and the Playstation 3 and PC(maybe) will have to wait for their share.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Debut Teaser Revealed!; Releases on November 10th!

Call of Duty 4 (Not Modern Warfare 2)

Call of Duty 4 (Not Modern Warfare 2)

After the Game Developers Conference Awards Ceremony, the new teaser for the upcoming sequel Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was shown to all in attendace. Although the video does not show any sort of gameplay, it does give hints through sound.

Basically, a terrorist group is of course in an everday airliner ready to board a plane. The group enters an elevator and gets their weapons out and loaded. We all wait in anticipation, suspense that maybe after they get out of the elevator, we would see some actual footage. The group steps out and unloads their weapons on the waiting citizens in the boarding room. Of course no gameplay is shown to us, only sound and some little screenshots in black and green color.

You can see the trailer below:
