Will You ‘Like’ The Ghost Recon Network

Try your customisation at the in-game gun range
While Far Cry 3’s social features are a bit baffling, Ubisoft’s new Ghost Recon Network makes a whole lot more sense. It’s not a traditional social network, really, as it has more in common with Call of Duty Elite: it will allow you to track stats from any device, customise your weapons and find other customisations from other players, set up and manage squads. It’ll come in web or Android or iPhone app form on May 25th, with the release of the console versions of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The PC release is June 15th. You could use those tweaked weapons in Future Soldier Guerilla mode, the four-player co-op mode that we forgot to mention last week.

I’ve not had a play of it, but I’m actually happy to have an outlet on my phone or netbook for all the fluff that gets in the way when I sit down and place my fingers at WASD. I have those moments on the bus where a game loadout epiphany strikes and there’s nothing to do but try and keep it in my head, or email it to myself. But then I stop because what if I accidentally send that email to the FBI and I end up on their most wanted list. I’m not good on the run: I like my own bed.

    The real question is : Will I care? heh. No.

  2. Hoaxfish says:

    This social thing reminds me of that terrible microsoft conference video that popped up a while ago, “powned” and all.

  3. Monkeh says:

    I hadn’t seen that video yet, looks like a pretty fun co-op mode actually.

  4. Turbobutts says:

    The real question is: Will Future Soldier be as absolutely awful as the Ghost Recon Online closed beta?

    ESDF 4 life

    I’m actually a little more confused now that I’ve watched that video. Is that supposed to happen?

      It’s yet another horde mode in a shooter.

      • Sinkytown says:

        This is good news. Battlelog and ELITE have been mildy useful.

        As for the saturation of horde modes: horde is the return of fun.

        If your game doesn’t work in the context of an endless mode, maybe you should rethink your game!

    I think the only reasonable response comes from one (1) Mr. Horse.

    God I hate third person when guns and aiming are involved. For melee fighting it’s good, but the constant change of POV involved in aiming and unaiming ruins the immersion for me. Why not stick to FPS like all the other Ghost Recon games?

    POV aside, it does look fun.

    Hello. In this issue of Inside Recon; Tom Clancy is proud to introduce guerilla mode. A four-player co-op experience. Play alone, splitscreen, on a lan, or over the internet with Tom Clancy.

    We wanted to develop an “intense mode,” where you feel the pressure of being overwhelmed by Tom Clancy. Four against a god.
