If you missed Operation Flashpoint the first time around, this is the perfect time to play catch up.
Codemasters announced that it will launch the ultimate Operation Flashpoint compendium pack this autumn for PC gamers. It brings together the award winning original game enhanced with all the official upgrades, expansions and additional campaigns. The compendium will be launched as Operation Flashpoint: Game of the Year Edition and is ideally suited for new Flashpoint recruits. It brings together the complete series, including the original Operation: Flashpoint, which has sold over one million copies.
Developed by Bohemia Interactive Studio, Operation Flashpoint thrilled war gamers by enabling the players to control and command not just soldiers of all ranks but also land, sea and air vehicles – both military and civilian – from cars, to APCs, to tanks and even military helicopters. The series has garnered critical acclaim for its realism of simulating military conflict situations, even to the extent where the game’s technology has been adapted for the United States Marine Corps to use as a special combat training application called VBS1 (Virtual BattleField System).
“We wanted to offer new recruits the total package so they can jump in and share the full experience with the legions of experienced soldiers in the Flashpoint community” said David Solari, senior marketing manager of Codemasters U.S. “This Game of the Year Edition is destined to keep Operation Flashpoint one of the strongest brands in the PC games market.”
