Operation Flashpoint 2 Skirmish Mode DLC Announced, Title Update Too

Codemasters has made good on their promise, and officially announced the first content pack for Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising.   The pack is called the Skirmish pack and features two new cooperative missions for four players as well as four new maps for competitive play.  There's also a new sandbox mode called Island Tour which can be played cooperatively.

 The new co-op maps are called All Round Defence, which looks to be a survival mode type map with support and attack helicopters as players defend a fortified complex against waves of PLA; and Uphill Struggle has players trying to capture a bunker under heavy fire from hillside reinforcements. 

The DLC is free on the PC and will cost $5 or 400  on the 360/PS3.  It should be available tomorrow.  Along with the DLC comes patches for both the PC and console versions.  Here's the list of fixes.
