Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising - The Why No Future Support Thread
In the build up to Modern Warfare 2, I really hope to be playing and enjoying Dragon Rising.
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is the sequel to the well received, wait for it, Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis. The creators of the original series have since been taken off the project and committed their resources to a slightly less well received game series titled Armed Assault. However, that's another thread.
So what is Dragon Rising about? If everything comes to plan, Dragon Rising will be an incredibly realistic portrayal of modern warfare. You will be placed on the island Kiska, near Alaska. Rule over Kiska has ranged from the Chinese, Russians, and the Japanese.
Oil were found. War were declared.
his game takes place on a small, fictional island located off the north coast of Japan called Skira during the present day. The island is a contested territory between Russia and China and becomes the center of an armed conflict when a large untapped oil and gas reserve is discovered there. The game begins as the player arrives as part of the United States Marine Corps and tasked with capturing the island on behalf of the Russians from the Chinese military.
As mentioned, Dragon Rising will be an authentic gaming experience. It's been described as "sandbox" in the sense that the entire island of Kiska is open for your exploration with a draw distance of 35km. If you were to cross the entire island, on foot, in the game, you would have to walk for 9 hours straight. Real time. Not no fancy game time.
There are 70 weapons in game with realistic ballistics. Bullets will ricochet. Guns are extensively modifiable.
There is co op multiplayer along with competitive multiplayer that allows for two teams of four players, each controller three AI combatants along with a directly controlled character.
