Codemasters has announced on their website the release of the new DLC for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. The DLC map pack entitled Skirmish includes 4 new multi-player maps, 2 Fire Team Engagement (FTE) missions and the chance to explore the entire 220 km² island of Skira alone or co-operatively with a range of vehicles at their disposal in Island Tour.
The four new multi-player maps include the two Infiltration maps Lumberyard and White Fang. Lumberyard has players aiming to destroy SAM launcher sites in a vast, sprawling complex, where as White Fang has the US Marines assaulting the dug in PLA in room to room combat. The other two maps, Annihilation maps, sees players make use of infantry and vehicles to destroy each other across a vast valley in Stomping Grounds, then in in Force Dispersal players will use close-quarters combat, in and around military bases to defeat their foes.
The New FTE missions include All Round Defence, which places gamers in control of air support and helicopters as they defend a fortified complex against unrelenting waves of PLA. In Uphill Struggle players must avoid fire from uphill reinforcements to capture the bunker located between the two armies.
In addition to the new content, Codemasters are releasing a patch to rectify some of the various problems with Dragon Rising. The DLC will be available for download today on Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft Points.
