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.

Dirt 2 Looking Solid in Mud; Releases on September 8th

Some new screenshots of Dirt 2, a sequel to Dirt by Codemasters, have been released. Dirt 2, a visually strong racing title, features damage-modeling and off-road racing.

The game will feature many new race-events, including stadium events. Along with the player, a mobile home car will travel from one event to another, and serve as ‘headquarters’ for the player. It will feature a roster of contemporary off-road events, taking players to the diverse and challenging real-world environments. This World Tour will have players competing in multi-car and solo races at new locations, from canyon racing and jungle trails to city stadium-based events, and will also include a new multiplayer mode.

Dirt 2 hits shelves in North America on September 8th for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation Portable, and Nintendo DS.

Obviously found in the name of the game, dirt is one of the main factors in the game. Players race through dirt and mud, which is showcased in the new screenshots below. Also enjoy videos of the upcoming racing game below the screens.
