The Ghost Recon series has long been enamored with the near future of warfare, and now, it has a near-future business model to match. Ubisoft today announced Ghost Recon Online, a free-to-play PC installment in the tactical shooter series.
The downloadable multiplayer shooter will take 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." Additionally, players will choose from three different character classes with persistent progress. Ubisoft is also promising to hold regular events, content updates, and live support for the title.
A closed beta test of the game is scheduled to go live this summer. Players can sign up for the program now at the official Ghost Recon Online site.
This won't be Ubisoft's first foray into the world of free-to-play. The publisher launched Might & Magic Heroes Kingdoms last year and converted its Shadowbane massively multiplayer online role-playing game to a free-to-play experience back in 2006.
