Operation Flashpoint marches to autumn

Codemasters' efforts Dragon a bit.

Codemasters has narrowed the launch window for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising to autumn.

The date pops up at the end of a brand new trailer, which has helicopters, tanks, grass, trees, bombs, missiles, corpses and camouflaged infantry to look at. There's some stirring trumpet music to accompany the action, but not a motorbike in sight! Points deducted.

Dragon Rising is Codemasters' internal attempt at an Operation Flashpoint sequel, much to original developer Bohemia Interactive's disapproval.

But the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game looks to be delivering the brutal, hardcore goods, as our lengthy Dragon Rising preview from April points out.
