The Tom Clancy franchise returns with the ambitious Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
If you'd asked me in 1998 to look fifteen years in the future and guess who the the most enduring names in video games would be, I might've listed the usual suspects: Sid Meier, Tim Schafer, Will Wright, Shigeru Miyamoto and maybe a few others. I probably wouldn't have included Tom Clancy.
Best-selling author Tom Clancy, best known in the video game world for his work on big franchises like Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon, has passed away.
Ubisoft's tactical shooter series Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon is going Hollywood. And it's doing that with movie direct Michael Bay of Armageddon and Transformers fame.
We've got an all-new layout, but the same great gaming scoops and rumors from that mysterious figure known as Superannuation. What did Superannuation dig up this time? Tons of things that you're probably not supposed to know about yet...* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
A DLC pack for the oft-forgotten Ghost Recon Online will for the next few weeks make the online PC shooter (technically still in beta) substantially more interesting. Provided you like Assassin's Creed, that is. And the prospect of Assassins using assault rifles.
Ubisoft has a plan to keep the Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell movies from sucking. Also: they want a Ghost Recon flick.
So, perhaps unsurprisingly, it seems there's another decent installation in the Ghost Recon series. Which is all well and good, but where's our LEGO Ghost Recon games?
Ubisoft's Ghost Recon franchise has always occupied the "tactical military shooter" space a bit uneasily. The series initially focused on brutally lethal engagements in long, outdoor spaces but with the Advanced Warfighter games of the mid-2000's evolved to cast the player as a technologically enhanced one-man army,…
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Ubisoft's new third-person sneaky shooter, comes out tomorrow. But for those eager to dive into stealth shooting action, the tie-in Facebook game, Ghost Recon: Commander, is available now.
In 2010, Ubisoft released one of the best video game "trailers" I'd ever seen, using fancy effects and real actors to bring Ghost Recon to life.
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.
If this month's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was a toddler and not a video game, I'd pat it on the head and compliment its Call of Duty costume.
Halo 4's not the only AAA game with a real-life movie lead-in. Ubisoft's just announced that their near-future squad shooter will be preceded by Ghost Recon Alpha, a 26-minute live-action film that will air on G4.
The trailer for Ubisoft's in-bound squad shooter promises all sort of invisible mayhem. And turrets and drones. What happens if everyone's cloaked at once, though? What happens, then?!
Developer/publisher Ubisoft didn't show off much of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier at PAX East. I experienced the tactical shooter through rounds of Guerilla mode, tackling up to 50 waves of increasingly difficult hordes of soldier enemies with three fellow elite Ghosts.
Ubisoft is releasing a number of Ghost Recon games this year. There's console title Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, free-to-play PC shooter Ghost Recon Online, and now Ghost Recon Commander, a Facebook-based social experience designed to bridge the other games and tie them together.
