Operation Flashpoint Red River is released today, and is looking to be one pretty sweet tactical FPS experience.
The game developers have made a massive focus about squad play and co-op in all modes. The campaign is fully drop-in/drop-out co-operative play, as you lead Marine Fire Team Bravo through a fictional conflict in Tajikistan in 2013. Tajikistan itself has been rather beautifully recreated, and the engine for the game looks very smooth while providing great visuals. The multiplayer boasts 4 game modes, and rather than cut out parts of the single player campaign to re-use, they have made every map heavily influenced by a part of Tajikistan - so when you storm a village and rescue a hostage in Red River, it really is a realistic environment you are playing in.
... And if you havent done so already head over to the Battlefield 3 Facebook fan page and help us to unlock the commentary video too.

The latest news from Splash Damage is sure to get people excited. With the release date of Brink being pushed back so many times its nice to hear that they can now say they are on track to release the game earlier than previously thought, the game is now set to be released on May 10 in the US, and May 13 in Europe and Australia.
"Production wrapped on Brink earlier than we planned and we didnâ€™t see any reason to keep gamers from getting their hands on this highly anticipated game as soon as it was ready," said Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks. "It's apparent from the tremendous reaction so far that people are eager to jump online and play, and if we can make that happen earlier â€“ we're going to."
