OpFlash: Dragon Rising DLC this month

Vehicle missions, levels, modes, more.

Codemasters has told Eurogamer that the first batch of Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising DLC will be out soon, alongside a network "optimisation" patch to "make it flow a bit better".

"Within two-to-four weeks of release, tops," executive producer Sion Lenton told us in an interview published today.

"Our intention is to align [the patch] with the first DLC pack that's coming out as well, which is due around the end of October. Hopefully we'll do the whole thing in one."

Sion Lenton said there will be more DLC down the line, although what that will be has not been decided. He's waiting to see what you want.

"It's quite open-ended," he added, "it's not a lot of fuss for us to make new content - it's actually quite easy for us to get it out there, with regards to things like levels, game modes, etc."

"The other thing we actually like to look at is getting some new equipment in there as well."

"One of the things we're hoping is we can address the balance of vehicles in the game," he added, "as there are people who expected to be able to use them more than they can in the final game. We're really ramping up the vehicle-specific missions in there. It's all really great tech, it all works, you can get in these things, so again, we'll be trying to exploit that as well."

He would like to expand on the campaign missions, but there appear to be no plans in place at the moment.

"We've got some stuff initially planned for this year, which I'm sure we'll be announcing soon - I'm looking at the PR here. I guess at the end of the day, let's see how it goes. But we'd love to do more stuff with it, we really would," said Lenton.

Head over to our full post-release Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising interview to find out more. It's told from two perspectives: Lenton's, and that of Neil Powell, a former army major we quizzed about the game's authenticity.
