Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Dated March ’12

Careful manshoots
Ubi’s techno-shooter Ghost Recon: Future Soldier had rather disappeared off the release radar, but it’s popped up again with a bright blip reading “March 2012″. Alec took a look at the game for Eurogamer early last year, so we can probably expect to have changed a bit since then. What won’t have changed is the game being all about tactical hi-tech combat with a dose of stealth. It could be refreshing, if done right.

Hey, we’ve got a recycled E3 trailer below. That is something you can watch.

    >Ivan Ilyitch Kerenski

    “So, we are making a game with Russians as bad guys, we need an authentic name for a baddest and baldest guy, any ideas?” “Ok, lets call him Ivan because all Russians are Ivans! And give him a second name Ilyitch because Lenin was Ilyich! And than we will rip-off Mechwarrior lore a bit because they probably knew what they were doing”.

      Yeeeeaaaaah… can’t say “Ilyich” is that common (at least from my experience), and “Kerenski” is definitely not the kind of last name you’d encounter often, if it even exists IRL. Thumbs down for the developers.

      And they’ve also misspelled “freedom” on the banner.

      And posters advertising hockey don’t look at all realistic.

    • coldvvvave says:

      “Kerenski” surname is obviously lifted from Mechwarrior fluff and Mechwarrior creators borrowed it from the real Kerenski, the guy who was a Provisional Government chief in 1917.

    December ’12 for PC.

    • sneetch says:

      Never for PC I believe, they’ve quietly removed all mention of the PC version.

      I think we’re supposed to be happy with this:

      Edit: on the Ghost Recon site you can see xbox, ps3 and pc game boxes in some pictures but not others. Who knows?

    Why bother with this story? Just get to the part where they delay it to tack on awful awful DRM.

    That video just make the game far too stupid for me to anticipate. I enjoyed the old Ghost Recon but this looks mediocre and probably another console port.

  7. StingingVelvet says:

    This game was seemingly announced for PC but I don’t think it is coming anymore. Ubisoft have said Xbox and PS3 only for a while now and on their forum the community managers say “this game is not announced for PC.”

    I could be wrong though.

    • Khemm says:

      You’re right. They once mentioned there would be a PC version made by a separate team, probably with different gameplay, but now it looks like it won’t be coming at all.

      I don’t care, Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon are now broken beyond repair.

    Operation “Take Down Overlord”, a.k.a. Operation “Kill The Bad Guy”, a.k.a. Operation “Shoot Stuff Till It Blows Up”.

    Seriously, where’s the awesomely cryptic codenames for Operations. Operation “Trojan Horse” or “Hydra” or something other than what you will literally be doing.

    Found the original Ghost Recon really fun on multiplayer. The browser though, which required login, (ubi something?) reallly annoyed me.
