After the in-game trailer, here's a couple of new images.

Release this summer on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
Story fact sheet:
Set to take gamers as close to war as they’ll ever want to get, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is set on the 220km2 island of Skira, located off the oil-rich eastern coast of Russia, north of Japan. On this immense open-world battlefield players will experience the intensity, diversity and claustrophobia of a present day conflict from the unique perspectives of an infantry marine and a Special Forces officer, each engaged against the full force of the Chinese PLA. As an epic single and multi-player campaign weaves the narrative, the game will give players the freedom to handle military crisis situations on their initiative.
Don't get why they released those bullshots to start with.

For the last week, half of GAF has been nothing but this gif.

Screengrabs don't have the feel I thought Codemasters were going for in their original concept shots.

I wonder why games like this only let you pick one side. It would be just as interesting, if not more so to play on the opposing force.

I think they look fine as someone who enjoyed the first game those bullshots were pointless.

Is this developed by the same people didn't they have their own game on the way?

The real OF2 is ArmA (or ArmA 2, to be released later this year), this game is just the IP used by a different team.

Screens look real good, whats with the AAA cutting edge graphic snobbery these days with every game. :?
Looking forward to the game, also to people above ( and no doubt below...), please don't draw a comparison between Flashpoint and Battlefield you'd be stupid to, at least not until they release this game. :\

WTF happened?? :-/
You make a whole bunch of bullshots and then you show the actual game. GAF has been calling out Codemasters like forever for this bullshit.

be careful, UK gaffers, Codemasters might take offense at your mockery and sue you.

but CM has always been good with at least reaching an approximation. These are bad graphics compared to other games.

yet the underfunded studio pulls it off:

I am looking forward to this game but I would love it if DICE released the first BF BC 2 pics today just to throw the power of their engine around.

Looking forward to this. Friends have been raving about the original for an age, and my in-game helicopter skills should prove useful.

So I am in confusion...Are these shots in game? IF so, they look phenomenal!

I don't really care about the graphics anyway, or the bad PR practices of codemasters. From the recently released video, it looks like the developers know what made the original fun. If they can capture half of that in this (they already showed off the mission editor), count me in day one.
