As a soldier in the US Marine Corps, fighting a fearsome enemy on the remote Pacific island of Skira, gamers face critical choices that will make the difference between life and death. Using every ounce of their skill and resources, players must overcome the deadly Chinese PLA advance force that is claiming sovereignty over the oil-rich island and defuse a military flashpoint between two global superpowers that threatens to engulf the world.
Set in a completely open-ended 220km2 game environment, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will put the fear back into the shooter by immersing players in a chillingly realistic conflict with an immense level of detail and authenticity. Players are given the freedom to handle unscripted missions on their own initiative, deploying the weaponry, vehicles and equipment of a state-of-the-art contemporary fighting force.
Whether it's assaulting, flanking or suppressing the enemy, or calling on fire support to rain down from the skies, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising demands players think on their feet, reacting quickly to any situation the game's advanced AI throws at them. No two engagements ever play out the same way and Skira's theatre of war is a tense, intimidating experience that brings gamers closer to war than they'll ever want to get.
