Spooks: Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Multiplayer Footage

Men shooting at other men. Why can't they all be crocodiles? Then I'd be interested.

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 Attack definitely will be for the first three months. And Ghost Recon: Ghostly Reckoning will only be on PC if you install it on PS3 first, and play via your 360. Glad to have cleared that up. Below you can see the latest trailer for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which is coming out on the 15th June for PC, rather than 25th May for consoles, because Ubisoft just cannot help themselves.

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 your route. It all looks incredibly fancy too, with a lovely balance between the washed-out real-world environments and the Tron-like tech overlays. Actually paying attention to this, now. Take a look.

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.

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, Chris Early of Ubisoft has told that playing Commander will unlock advantages in the other two upcoming Ghost Recon games, and vice versa. I suppose the idea is that spending a spare half hour on Facebook could earn you a gun rather than a dubiously rekindled acquaintance with a former sort-of-friend. Quotes and thoughts await below.

Ghost Recon Future Soldier Has 20 Million Gun Configs

Note: not a gun
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 future shooter means there’s a gun configuration for ever day of the week, plus 19’999’993 more days after that. Such configuration is essential if you’re in the hunt for The World’s Most Dangerous Man. I’m not sure if the video is hinting that Osama will be in Future Soldier, but I don’t think it fits in the time frame. Not that they really care about realism: X-ray guns? If they have those then they’d clearly have a mecha Bin Laden.

Stealth, Bombs: Ghost Recon Future Soldier

Harry Potter: all grown up, same bag of tricks


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 fair” is the tagline and it’s not a curveball announcing the arrival of hordes of rulebook-wielding zombies but rather a way of saying, ‘do whatever is necessary’. Position yourself within a shrub upon a hilltop and observe the trailer through a thermal imaging binocuscope.

Ghost Recon Future Soldier On PC After All

Oh good, I was worried we'd run out of games about soldiers

First it was happening and then it wasn’t cos of mad piracy paranoia and there was a bunch of shouting and it was horrible and now it is happening again! Sometimes having a moan really does work, though it is better to moan politely and with words that don’t mostly begin with ‘f’.
