Second video of Operation Flashpoint

Second video of Operation Flashpoint

Bohemia and Paul Statham did another exclusive video for us from their upcoming Xbox game Operation Flashpoint: Elite. In this 10 minute video, we'll get to see another full mission, where Paul owns the sky. Enjoy! With a little bit of luck, there's a chance we'll have something more from this game next week. Oh - and don't miss out the crazy bloopers in the end of the video.

OMG! Nice!

Thanks Manager and the guys back at Bohemia!
I really hope this game will be as great as the PC game, looking forward to a next installment in the future.

a sniper rifle in the PC version was umatched in any other game IMO, hope they've kept the mechanics of the sniper in the xbox version.

thank you for the videos, they're awesome, i like the graphical style of the xbox version.

I'm gutted this didn't come out sooner, as it is I think it might suffer because of the Xbox360.

I loved the PC version, in fact it's the only "wargame" I ever really liked, normally they leave me cold.

If Bohemia have sorted the "Join in Progress" and some of the clipping issues somethings the PC suffered from, then Operation Flashpoint would be brilliant as a Live game.

Glad you're liking it so far :)

I have to confess that after playing the Xbox game with JIP I cannot face going back to Opf on PC without it, MP works so much better in the Xbox version, as you will all find out very soon hopefully :)

Regarding the clipping the first video of yesterday should give some hints of how well that was achieved, a few time I go very close to objects such as trees and walls which are now very solid objects which are reacted to correctly by the controlled character as well as the AI, note how the AI are now so confident with the fixed clipping they actually hide behind trees when prone ;)

Oh, you are from the PR department? Seems like it is a good game. I don't know if it'll sell good, why did it take so long to develop this game?

The 360 is coming and then there are lots of shooters on the xbox, for a shooter to sell well, they need to be way above average. I'll keep an eye on this game, that's for sure.

Good luck

Everything about this video is great..except the fact that its in .wmv format. Does anyone know a good converter from .wmv to any QT compatible file type?
Commented on 2005-10-22 12:01:05
ASF Converter?

Tested it myself real quick and it converted a wmv just fine :)

To save my typing I answered some questions including about next gen versions here http://www.xboxyde.com/news_2169_en.html :)

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (17 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (18 Hours ago)
