Ghost Recon Isn't Even Out and It's Already Announcing DLC

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier hits shelves on May 22, a week from Tuesday, but Ubisoft is already letting everyone know about extra stuff they can buy later on this year. Specifically, the "Arctic Strike Map Pack," coming your way July 3 for $10.

The pack includes new maps, a new multiplayer mode, weapons "to give you the supreme edge over your enemies," and a co-op map for Guerilla Mode.

Hard not to see this as Ubisoft seeing the stink over day-one DLC for Mass Effect 3 and just deciding to wait a couple of weeks. I guess it could be fig-leafed as "developed separately but concurrently" or whatever, but if they're this certain of what it's going to offer 10 days before the main game shows up, sounds like it's already baked. It'll run $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points, depending on what currency your console uses.
