Codemasters follows up last year's realistic tactical shooter Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising with an all-new entry due in 2011. Operation Flashpoint: Red River will let players visit scenic Tajikistan to experience an "epic campaign." What else?

Red River will, according to its official announcement, "include a deeper narrative-led campaign, streamlined inventory and control system, a refined enemy and squad AI system, player class roles including customizable XP upgrades and loadout choice, close-quarters combat and new air support options."

If that sounds like everything you've ever wanted from a realistic, one-shot, one-kill shooter, you may want to invest in an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PC capable of playing Operation Flashpoint: Red River before next year.

Codemasters deployed a few "visual target" concept images of Red River today, which fans of lens flare and the United States Marine Corps absolutely should not miss.
