Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising 'Skirmish' DLC and Title Updates Announced

New 'Skirmish' video shows off explosive new downloadable content, available to view at

Codemasters today announced that the first Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising downloadable content – the ‘Skirmish’ pack – will be available for PC tomorrow, November 5th, bundled with a title update patch.

Title Updates for the console editions of the acclaimed tactical shooter will arrive prior to the launch of the ‘Skirmish’ DLC pack on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Network. The Title Update for the Xbox 360 edition of the game will be available tomorrow, November 5th, with the Title Update for the PlayStation 3 edition to follow shortly.

The ‘Skirmish’ video, available from, demonstrates the breadth of exhilarating new content. Players are shown going head to head in attack helicopters, deploying tanks and APCs and engaging in ranged and close quarters combat in the wide ranging new maps and missions featured in the downloadable content.

The ‘Skirmish’ DLC features four new multiplayer maps and two new Fire Team Engagement (FTE) missions featuring both solo and four player co-operative play. Hunt down SAM launchers hidden in the sprawling complex of ‘Lumberyard’ and assault dug in PLA forces and fight room to room in ‘White Fang’, two tense new ‘Infiltration’ multiplayer maps. ‘Annihilation’ multiplayer maps pitch armor and infantry against each other in rolling battles across a valley in ‘Stomping Grounds’ and in ‘Force Dispersal’ military bases separated by a strategic hill become a close-quarters killing ground.

New FTE missions include ‘All Round Defense’, which places gamers in control of air support and attack helicopters as they defend a fortified complex against relentless waves of PLA. In ‘Uphill Struggle’ players must capture a bunker under heavy fire from hillside reinforcements. Gamers can also recon the entire 220 km island of Skira alone or co-operatively in a range of vehicles at day or night in ‘Island Tour.’

Taking on board feedback from the Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising community, tomorrow’s title update will include a range of updates and improvements for the multiplayer and single player modes of the game; for details visit the ‘Public Affairs’ section at
