Codemasters have announced that they will be publishing a mission pack for Operation Flashpoint, titled Red Hammer. Due out in December and expected to cost £9.99, the pack will add a whole new campaign giving you a chance to fight the war from the Soviet side. Included are twenty new missions and a new character to play, a tough Russian veteran called Dmitri Lukin. Although the pack will use the same islands and storyline seen in the original game, it should offer a new perspective on the action, giving you the chance to take part in the invasion of Everon, fight your way out of a resistance ambush and find your way back to Soviet positions on Malden after being trapped behind enemy lines.
