Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising supports Philips amBX
Codemasters announced that Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising will support Philips' amBX technology in order to deliver an even better gaming experience.
According to Codemasters Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising will, like its predecessor, support the amBx technology of Philips which is supposed to make combat in the military simulation more lifelike. Philips' amBX uses light of different colors, sound, vibrations and even airstream to enhance what is shown on the display. Producer Darren Campion said that using the night vision equipment in Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising would cause the amBX system to react and thus make the gaming experience more realistic.
Operation Flashpoint is regarded to be one of the most realistic games of the past years. Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising is supposed to deliver a similar grade of realism and therein the Ego Engine has an important role to play. The technical base for the game has also been used in colin McRae Dirt and Race Driver: Grid but has been improved for Operation Flashpoint 2. The military simulation is scheduled for release on October 8, 2009 and will be published for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. More information can be found on the official website.
