Ghost Recon Online
is developed by Ubisoft Singapore, and offers all the best qualities of the
Ghost Recon franchise in a downloadable, dynamic, PC-based online game. Ghost
Recon Online launches in closed beta beginning this summer.
With Ghost Recon Online, Ubisoft is delivering the most social, connected and
customizable Ghost Recon experience yet. The game offers players the ability to
choose between three different classes of Ghost, customize their weapons,
deploy cutting-edge military technology, and share intel with their team. Ghost
Recon Online also features a rich lobby platform for hosting social and
persistent progression features. Ubisoft also will back the game with a full
set of services, including regular events and game content updates, customized
content based on community feedback, and live support.
The online features complement Ghost Recon Online's rich graphical environments
and maps, which rival the quality of those traditionally seen only in retail
games. And while the game is free for anyone to play, players also can purchase
premium items and fully personalize their experience.
"Ghost Recon Online takes the best attributes of the Ghost Recon game franchise
and brings them online, making the experience of being a Ghost accessible to
millions of new players and fans," said Hugues Ricour, senior producer at
Ubisoft. "This game was designed from the start to be a free-to-play
experience. Our development teams are dedicated to making Ghost Recon Online a
truly unique, top-quality online title."
Ghost Recon Online is Ubisoft's latest entrant in the online gaming market and
its first shooter to be offered in a free-to-play format. "For Ubisoft,
delivering games as a service means offering fans the opportunity to stay
connected to their favorite gaming worlds, to participate in fan-based
communities and play with millions of peers from around the world."
"The online market is an exciting new frontier for video games and for gamers,"
said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft. "With Ghost Recon
Online, and other major upcoming projects, Ubisoft is creating online
experiences that allow our fans to stay connected to their favorite brands and
to continually receive new content and gameplay. This direct link with our fans
will allow us to create new and ever better experiences for them."
