Codemasters has put out a new trailer for Operation Flashpoint: Red River, and it takes you along with the US Marines as they enter into Tajikistan.

Here’s a description of the video:

Set in 2013 in the new location of Tajikistan, the UMSC are sent in to defend American interests threatened by insurgency in the destabilised country. The video follows the Marines’ mission to secure a river dam, a vital part of Tajikistan’s vulnerable infrastructure. As narrator Staff Sergeant Knox informs us, their insurgent enemy is ‘entrenched and determined’ but ‘such an opportunity to win local hearts and minds is always worth a measured risk.’

Marines are shown facing down the insurgents, who fight a guerrilla war from the shadows and use their local knowledge to stage ambushes. Combining the different specialities contained within the four-man Fireteam, Marines sweep through compounds and towns, engaging enemies at close quarters and long range. Reflecting their role in a broader conflict as part of a large expeditionary force, they are shown in action alongside artillery, armour, air-support and additional infantry fireteams.

Watch it below.

While there is no set date for the game, it is slated for a Q2 2011 release on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
