Ghost Recon Online now live

Ubisoft Singapore's free-to-play third-person shooter enters open beta worldwide for PC.

Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Online has finally decloaked, as the free-to-play third-person shooter launched worldwide today, officially entering its open beta phase on the PC.

GRO is go.

Developed by Ubisoft Singapore, the downloadable multiplayer shooter takes place in a third-person perspective with a focus on cover-based tactical gameplay. As is standard for free-to-play offerings, players will be afforded opportunities to customize their characters by purchasing "premium items," including weapons, gear, and in-game boosts, as well as more cosmetic changes.

The game has launched only on the PC, but Ubisoft also previously announced that a Wii U version is in development. For more on Ghost Recon Online, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Played beta, should be called Ghost Recon: Sniper Fight. 

 

They overplayed the effect of recoil so badly you have no chance against a sniper at any sort of range, where the easy 1 hit kill wins every time.  Oh and snipers have x-ray vision, so good luck flanking. 

 

The moral of the story is, in an 8 vs 8 match, expect a lot of snipers, and maybe a couple easy targets who have not yet learned they need to be snipers...

I will not even give this "free" game a shot - becasue of DRM.

Too bad the game isn't that great and forces draconian DRM on to your PC to play a free to play game.

 

What was Ubisoft thinking?
