New “Overwatch” DLC and PC Patch Now Available

The second patch and DLC pack for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising PC – the “Overwatch” pack – is now available for the PC today. The “Overwatch” DLC delivers two game-changing multiplayer modes and new Fire Team Engagement (FTE) missions. The PC patch can be downloaded by heading to http://www.codemasters.com/downloads.

The download contains two new multiplayer modes, “Blindside” and “Supremacy.” In “Blindside,” the PLA must complete objectives in the shortest time possible while the USMC defends in tense, tactical engagements. “Supremacy” tasks opposing forces to occupy strategically vital positions featuring force multipliers such as gun emplacements and air strikes.

”Blindside” pits a team of attackers versus a team of defenders in an objective-based mode that sees the attackers tasked with completing three objectives, while a team of defenders goes all-out to stop them. The attackers can complete the first two objectives in any order, while the third objective is only accessible once the first two objectives have been completed. In addition to having to overcome the defenders, the attackers are also under a time limit set by the host.

“Supremacy,” is an objective-based territory control mode. Each team scores points by holding one of five capture points. Each capture point will also contain an “asset,” such as access to off-board fire support, when held for a prolonged period of time. The winning team is the team with the most points at the end of the round, or the first team to reach the points limit. If either team holds all territories simultaneously, they automatically win the match.

These new multiplayer modes are complimented by two brand new FTEs. In Friendly Skies, PLA anti-aircraft artillery prevents U.S. airborne reinforcements from inserting into the combat zone. Players must remove that threat and then defend the position from a PLA counter attack. In Hostile Takeover, intel reveals enemy movement in the village of Armudan, a perfect base for launching attacks deep into enemy territory. Gamers must flush out the PLA, establish a perimeter and hold their ground against a new enemy assault.

Operation Flashpoint : Dragon Rising is rated M for Mature and is available for $49.99 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and $29.99 for PC.
