IGN reports that Codemasters' deadly serious military shooter, Operation Flashpoint: Red River, has been delayed in the US. The release has moved by two months, with a new planned launch date of June 7. The European release remains slated for April 26.
The brutal new chapter in the world-renowned, multi-million selling franchise, Operation Flashpointâ„¢ Red River takes the tactical military shooter to new levels of intense authenticity. On a deadly new battlefield where one bullet can kill, Operation Flashpoint: Red River takes gamers closer to the experience of the US Marine Corps on campaign than ever before.
Operation Flashpoint Red River delivers a personal experience of infantry Marines on mission in a hostile country, thousands of miles from home. Dispensing with corny heroics, corridor gun-play and unrealistic set pieces, players deploy real life tactics in a range of new scenarios and against new enemies. The tension, brutality and carnage of modern warfare is intense as players feel the rush of adrenaline that comes when it's time for Marines to "get some".
