Exclusive: Operation Flashpoint video

Exclusive: Operation Flashpoint video

Many years ago, Operation Flashpoint was released on PC and took the world by storm. Years later and millions of copies sold, the super-realistic shooter now lands on Xbox in around two weeks. That much media haven't been released for this game, but now Bohemia Interactive gives you this 10 minute ingame-video, exclusively available here on Xboxyde. A big thanks to Bohemia and specially Paul R. Statham! We'll have more from this game in the upcoming days, stay tuned.



Except that the Xbox-version contains the expansion Resistance, Bohemia also upgraded most of the stuff in the game. We'll in this video see a whole mission, and you'll be amazed by the fantastic draw distance and the wonderful sounds. If you want realism, you've come to the right place. More info about the game is available at the official Operation Flashpoint: Elite website.

Omg thank you Manager!

I haven't played the PC game in a while, but I'll play this a lot on Xbox hopefully.

I wonder how the managed to fit the PC controls unto the Xbox controller.

Haha, classic mission. Good intro to the game aswell as it highlights just how tactically aware you need to be!

If anyone has any questions about the game leave them here and I'll try to pop back later to answer them :)

Huge thanks to Xboxyde.com and specifically Manager for their help in letting us show this video to you all :)

LOL, fair enough ;)

That one I can only partially answer, below are shots showing the aircraft config and a joystick config, I'll add a standard infantry config tomorrow when I'm back in the office :)

I must ask, and I assure you I'm not trying to be rude - but what took so long!? :D

Or can you not talk about that aspect :(
Commented on 2005-10-19 21:18:28
It looks like an xbox game, lol

anyways with all the new gen games, this might be the last one i play on live.

If you can forgive me a little I'll post a link to an interview we did recently with Xbox World Australia, it might give a little background to some of your questions which you're then very welcome to elaborate on accordingly http://www.xboxworld.com.au/interviews/interview.p...

one question, on the pc version i had to take the gamma levels all the way up for the colors to shine throu, seems to be the same with the xbox version. Waht i meen is that the colors look bland and pail, or is this just the vid?

sorry for any typos or badly chosen words, english is not my native language:)
Commented on 2005-10-19 22:28:32
Yeah the colours in the vid aren't accurate as to how they are ingame because of the means for capturing the video, in screenshots we've released the colours are 100% as they are ingame because they're captured directly from the Xbox with no 3rd party hardware/software, below are some of the screenshots we released last week with the gone gold press release........

placebo i have 1 question....

do u's have any plans to dev for the 360 or any other next gen,i mean if u can push the xbox this hard i'd love to see what u's could do with all the power of next gen.

can't wait for this game by the way,looks great

one more: what about the framerate? i guess its smooth, but sence the little box gets pushed so far towards its limits, i think its only natural to ask.

This is by the way, a great marketing strategy, to talk directly to us gamers, altho this may not by a marketing stratgy, and its just you beeing a realy nice guy!

Apologies for the delay :(

My host seems down at the moment so here are links to images showing the three standard configurations (infantry, air vehicles, ground vehicles)

There isn't a widescreen mode, sorry.

We hope it's backwards compatible as well, we don't anticipate it not being, but nobody will know for sure until it's tried on a 360 :)

There are no current plans beyond our announced next 2 PC titles, but we don't rule anything out, 360 is definitely looking like a nice system ;)

Yep framerate is smooth, when you consider what's going on around you and the size of the islands I think you'll see it's a surprising accomplishment ;)

Let's say 90% marketing strategy, 9% nice guy, 1% insanity ;)
