GRAW 2's legacy lives on

Legacy Edition to bundle Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 with extra disc including DLC packs, new maps, missions, weapons.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter was one of the best-looking Xbox 360 games back when it launched in 2006, combining impressive visuals with tense, squad-based action. GRAW 2, while not being a major update to the series, faithfully followed behind its brother in arms a year later.

Ubisoft today announced a new Legacy Edition for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, which is yet to join Microsoft's budget-priced Xbox 360 Classics range.

Legacy Edition will bundle the original GRAW 2 game with an extra disc featuring all of the Xbox Live download packs--including 32 extra maps, new game modes and missions, and new weapons for the single-player campaign.

Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 Legacy Edition, an exclusive for Xbox 360, will be storming retail stores this April with a "mid-price" recommended retail price for Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

Ubisoft has yet to announce if Legacy Edition will serve a US tour of duty.

bulletwaster, graw 2 is out on ps3 as well (i hated saying that) but whats this about no NA release? that really sucks, i would have thought thats the first place it would have been released, i would be gutted if i couldn't get my hands on this i still play graw 2 all the time and in my mind it beats the pants out of cod4.

ubisoft relaly knows how to make a good shooter and support their games. ghost recon 2 was supported so much with care that people actually wanted them to remake it for graw and they did. thats what you call a fan-based studio. i love them

Can't recommend this enough...I wasn't a fan on its initial release as it strayed too far from the Recon ethos, but the DLC is some of the best I've ever seen and the sheer variety of gamemodes has meant it has even nudged COD4 out of the disc tray for the last 2 months. Awesome.

Microsoft owns the 360 and this is 360 exclusive, microsoft is also in the US so why no NA release?

Damn. Is there even a point in posting this here since it's not announced for the US/Canada yet? I was like, cool i'm buying since i have't gotten this one yet. AT the end they say it's announced everywhere except NA...bummer.

Personally I think that GRAW 2 was not that big. The first one was, but 2 lost its hype. Especially after a few months... I love Ubisoft and all (with Vegas and Vegas 2 coming out soon), but I don't think they should bring out a "Legacy Edition".....the games dead, period. Just concentrate on Vegas 2.

This is a good idea but I already have the game

@ masiisam - "UBI..where is the hype for GRAW 3...come on now.." Exactly what I was thinking.

DarthSnipa

I don't know if I'd buy that or even rent it... if it turned out to be really good I'd probably rent it, but seeing as how I have owned/beaten the entire game, and the online is currently dead, it doesn't look too good right now.

Why the hell is it an 360 exclusive? Every GR game has been on both PS and xbox, of course the PS2 version was crap.

Well, they will probably bring it to the US. Good thing I decided to wait.

To: ghost867 HAHAHAHAHAHA....good joke. Anyways...so much for me just buying a used copy and paying for the downlaodable content last week! I guess its the same deal anyways seeing how you would have to downloan the DLC from the disc to the hard drive. If anyone is wondering if they should get this...I say....YES! Great deal....Great game and A LOT of content.

ddelella Ghost Recon has gone arcadey enough compared to how the franchise once was. I really hope they don't make things faster because they've already ruined the series by putting in 3rd person as an option for online play. The GRAW games are good as they stand and any more (so called) improvements would most likely ruin the series even more so then what they've already done for it's core base of fans. Honestly, if you really want the CoD experience then play CoD. Why should all games play the same? Wouldn't that just over flow the market with clone after clone of one genre?
