With a week to go until launch for Operation Flashpoint: Red River, Codemasters announced that there is a new gameplay trailer that is viewable for anyone on Facebook. The video is subtly titled "Unfinished Business", so you can expect this final trailer to be one filled with information. The game itself will be up against heavy competition, considering it markets itself as a tactical shooter and not an FPS style game. With the game being a multi-platform release on the 360, PS3, and PC, we look forward to a game where you can enjoy some time as a Marine, arming yourself to the teeth with whatever weapon you enjoy, including tanks, helicopters, and airstrikes.
Update (Chuck) - here's the full trailer
