Ubisoft Announce Ghost Recon Online

The Tom Clancy franchise is receiving yet another expansion, this time delving into the realm of free-to-play online shooters with Ghost Recon Online. Launching this Summer via closed beta the game will stand against EA’s already-popular entries to the sub-genre, Battlefield Play4Free and Battlefield Heroes. Sporting an intuitive cover system and in-depth character customisation, senior producer Hugues Ricour and Ubisoft Singapore are touting Ghost Recon Online as a substantial instalment to the series.

Ghost Recon Online takes the best attributes of the Ghost Recon game franchise and brings them online, making the experience of being a Ghost accessible to millions of new players and fans.

Though the core game won’t cost a dime, there will of course be a number of premium options available to players such as weapon and costume packs as well as possible buffs including XP boosts.

  1. Acti has a problem with FREE stuff i guess.

  2. While it does sound good, I wish Ubisoft would just pile their resources into GR:FS as it is continuously suffering delays.

    • Itll be great when it drops, im sure of it. Patience is a virtue.
