Carry On Up The: Future Soldier: Khyber Strike

I haven't paid much attention to Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which seems like it might have been a mistake, because a) it's supposedly quite good, b) it has the biggest muzzle-flashes I have ever seen, and c) it's a game full of high-tech techno-tools. DLC for the game has just arrived today, amusingly dubbed Khyber Strike, and it features a number of…

Future Imperfect: Ubi Working On Ghost Recon Issues

When some players report that keyboard and mouse don't work with their PC game, you know you've got a problem. And that's only the beginning of a laundry list of issues leaving players feeling rather haunted by Tom Clancy's Ghosts. While some players are reporting mostly functional experiences, others have found themselves plagued by unadjustable resolutions, framerate caps, chugging performance, crippling server connection problems, and…

Ghost Recon PC Keeps On Slipping Into The Future

Quick bit of unfortunate news: If Ubisoft's rather, er, atypical ads are to be believed, you're spending every waking moment and sweaty, sleepless night fantasizing about Gunsmith in anticipation of GRFS' (pronounced "gurfs") PC launch on June 15. And since the target audience for those ads totally exists and you're definitely part of it, an out-of-nowhere delay to June 29 may be an actual tragedy…

Spectral Time Warrior: Ghost Recon – Future Soldier

Tom Clancy has written and directed loads of adverts for his Future Soldier game and the latest is a launch trailer, although the PC version isn't actually launching until mid-June. Nevertheless, it's my favourite advideo to date, featuring as it does the word co-operative over and over again. I like co-operative games so maybe I'll actually enjoy this latest Clanciful vision of tomorrow's conflicts, even…

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Trailer Is A Sombvertisement

Continuing its trend of, er, nontraditional trailers, Ubisoft's stirred Ghost Recon: Future Soldier's pre-launch pot with a taster that's... well, it won't bore you. That much is certain. It's not quite a sadvertisement along the lines of, say, Dead Island or Mass Effect 3's case of the sunflower weepies, but it does attempt to get inside a soldier's head both on the battlefield and off to,…

Ghost Recon Future Soldier Gunsmith Trailer Is A Bit Silly

The phrase "gunsmith" always makes me imagine the Ghosts ducking into a wartorn alleyway, only to discover a comfortable alcove occupied by a jolly, thick-bearded dwarf and his robust set of smelting tools. They sit down and banter for a bit over a thick hunk of black bread and some finely aged cheeses. It's all very pleasant. Evidently, however, Ubisoft and I don't exactly see eye-to-eye…

Ghost Reckoning: Future Soldier Trailer Shoots Many Men

When you think about it, Ghosts of the Tom Clancy variety actually have quite a lot in common with ghosts of the Casper, The Friendly persuasion. After all, I mean... you know... well, they both have "ghost" in their name. They both, uh, talk to people... Oh, and invisibility! That's the ticket. The latest Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, however, absolutely ruins my clever analogy. And…

Spooks: Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Multiplayer Footage

Like me, you may have become a little confused about what Ghost Recon games are coming to PC, and which aren't. Let me explain. Ghost Recon Online is, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier wasn't, but is now. Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars was for the DS. Ghost Recon: Have We Found The Ghosts yet won't be, but then will, but then won't be again. Ghost Recon: Elizabethan…

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’s “Stealth” Is Technological

And frankly pretty impressive. The first trailer for the upcoming tactical shooter shows off a bunch of the gadgets that players will have access to as they sneak and infiltrate, the best of which is clearly the quadrocopter drone (I am so buying the toy one of those for myself soon...) which can be used for scouting out enemies ahead and allowing you to plan…

Will You ‘Like’ The Ghost Recon Network

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…

Ghosts In The Social Machine: Ghost Recon Commander

We know very little about Ghost Recon: Commander, so little in fact that I only just found out that it's going to exist. I'd rather be a Commander than a Future Soldier or an Online so I was pleased about the prospect, but then I saw that it's a Facebook/mobile game and my interest spiraled away like chocolate syrup down a motel shower drain. However,…

Ghost Recon Future Soldier Has 20 Million Gun Configs

The man in this video had ten different customised weapons waiting for him at any time, so remember that if you choose to mock his overly-dramatic presentation of Ghost Recon Future Soldier's Gunsmith capabilities in the comments: he probably has a 'snotty internet jerk' config that'll make the Windows key on your keyboard garotte you. The plug and play aspect of the arsenal in Ubisoft's…

Stealth, Bombs: Ghost Recon Future Soldier

BWAARRRR, LOCK AND LOAD, BWARRRRR, LAUNCH DETECTED, BWEEEEEEEE, RATATATATAATA...ARRGHLE...KABOOM...shhhhhhhh. That seems to be the script for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier judging by the gameplay footage in this new trailer. Sure, there are missiles launching and helicopters strafing entire continents with vicious intent, but there's also sneaky silenced sniping, creeping up and stabbing, and a great deal of encouragement to fight dirty. "Only the dead fight…

‘Piracy’ Stops Ghost Recon: Future Soldier PC

Is it Thanksgiving or Groundhog day? I could have sworn it was yesterday that news emerged of a Ubisoft title not being released on PC, with anguished claims about rampant piracy being blamed. Now it's the turn of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and although the quotes given to PC Gamer don't actually accuse us all of 'bitching', they do paint an unpleasant view of the…

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Dated March ’12

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…

Ubisoft’s E3 Line-Up Examined. In London.

RPS didn't got to E3. So E3 came to RPS, with Ubisoft showing their E3 demos in London yesterday. South London being slightly easier to reach than Los Angeles, I went along to have a look at what they have to offer us in the coming twelve months. Well, quite a bit. While ManiaPlanet will await a future date to look properly at it, there…

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier on EG

Alec has vanished into the Oxford countryside, probably on a mission of some kind, but it could just be he got loose after dark. Either way, his preview of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is up over here. Here's a bit that is illustrative and relevant: All these omni-death abilities mean Ghost Recon is no longer a game of skulking behind rocks, picking people off from…
