The promised Ghost recon The announcement of the 20th Anniversary Showcase was the unveiling of a new free first-person PvP shooter called Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline. The game will feature a new version of the Battle Royale franchise where the goal is not necessarily to be the last team and there is no converging circle.
The main “flagship” mode in Ghost Recon Frontline is an expedition. More than 100 players are split into teams of three and sent to an island called Drakemoor. Here they need to collect information from three different locations by fulfilling dynamic goals. Once the information is gathered, this team can request an extraction helicopter from one of three drop zones. As soon as an extraction is called, all other teams are notified and can try to stop the extraction or even steal it themselves. The first team to leave the island is the winner. Other game modes will also be available at launch. One of them is the control mode, in which two teams of nine players fight to dominate an area.
Ghost Recon Frontline has several unique contractor classes to suit different play styles and these can be swapped out in the middle of the game if players feel like it. Each class has its own unique skills, consumables, and devices. In terms of skills, they have one active skill, one major passive skill, and two minor passive skills. Players start out with two contractors, each part of one of three main classes: Attack, Support, and Scout.
Attack is good for hand-to-hand combat, uses sensor grenades to locate enemies at close range and prevent them from briefly regenerating health if the attacker injures them. Support specializes in fortifications equipped with cover points and automatic turrets. Scout is the scout member who uses a UAV to detect enemies farther away or even drop them into a sniper turret at key vantage points. Other classes will be available at launch.
Players can also use a “large set” of tactical support tools such as automatic turrets, smoke screen drones, and barricades, some of which can be found across the map. Others can be called through the TAC support tool as long as the players have enough request points to gather intelligence, hack laptops and take out enemy teams. Like the Battle Royale maps of many other games, Drakemoor has many sights, different biomes, and changing weather conditions that could force all players to change their strategy.
Ghost Recon Frontline comes for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna and PC. Ubisoft Bucharest’s game will feature crossplay between all of these platforms when it is released at an unknown time in the future. Until then, players will be able to sign up on the game’s official website to take part in beta tests, although the first few are limited to PC gamers only.
In other Ghost recon Anniversary messages that players can receive Ghost Recon Wildlands’ Fallen spirits DLC for free in the PlayStation Store as well as in Ghost Recon Breakpoint Deep State Adventure Extension that can be downloaded for free from the in-game store. Both are available for free for a limited time until October 11th to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise.[Source: Ubisoft]
