Codemasters will offer PC owners of Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising a free batch of DLC tomorrow.

PS3 and Xbox 360 owners, on the other hand, need to wait and also pay. "Shortly" is the release estimate, and 400 MSP (3.40/4.80) or 3.19/3.99 is the cost.

Dubbed Skirmish, the add-on brings four new multiplayer maps and two new Fire Team Engagement missions (solo/co-op). Of them, Lumberyard and White Fang are Infiltration MP maps; Stomping Grounds and Force Dispel are Annihilation outings; and All Round Defence and Uphill Struggle are FTE offerings. There's also the opportunity to explore every nook and cranny of the map in Island Tour mode.

Check out our Skirmish gallery for snaps of the DLC in action.

A patch will coincide with the Skirmish DLC for PC owners. That same Title Update will be offered to Xbox 360 gamers tomorrow, and the PS3 crowd will be sated "shortly" after. The "Public Affairs" section on the Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising website has a full list of fixes, tweaks and tucks.
