OnLive Released Operation Flashpoint: Red River

OnLive released Operation Flashpoint: Red River to the marketplace as a PlayPass title. The game is priced at $44.99 in the US ($31.49 PlayPack) and £24.99 in the UK (£17.49 PlayPack). The rental prices are $5.99 for 3 days ($4.19 PlayPack) and $8.99 for 5 days ($6.29 PlayPack) in the US. In the UK the rental prices are £3.99 for 3 days (£2.79 PlayPack) and £5.99 for 5 days (£4.19 PlayPack).

Operation Flashpoint: Red River is a tactical first person shooter published and developed by British Codemasters.



Between Afghanistan and China, the world's next flashpoint is about to erupt. The valleys, towns and mountains of Tajikistan will become bloody frontlines for the might of the People's Liberation Army, insurgent guerilla fighters and the United States Marine Corps.

You and your fireteam can make a difference. How much is up to you. It's not the soldier with the most expensive gun or the biggest heart who wins on the battlefield. It's the smartest. Semper Fi, Marine.

GAME FEATURES:

- Go closer to the experience of the US Marines on campaign with the ultimate tactical infantry shooter
- Stand together with 4 player drop-in drop-out online co-op multiplayer in campaign mode and standalone Fire Team Engagements
- Become immersed in an engrossing narrative which unfolds over three acts in campaign mode
- Play as Grenadier, Scout, Rifleman and Automatic Rifleman classes, each with unique strengths and weaknesses for increased replayability
- Earn and spend XP on weapons, attachments and abilities for each of the fireteam's specialists
- Call in Combat Support such as Mortars, Howitzers and JDAMs, whilst AH-1Z Helicopters and A-10 Ground Attack Aircraft provide Close Air Support

Sadly, the Codemasters developed Operation Flashpoint: Red River takes all the things the Flashpoint name is associated with – creative, emergent destruction and go-anywhere realism – and lets them wash away. It’s the diametric opposite of the freedom of the first Operation Flashpoint, the military simulation tactical shooter classic developed by Bohemia InteractiveCodemasters retains the rights to the Operation Flashpoint name. Let's hope that some of the games from Bohemia Interactive's ARMA series make it to OnLive.
