This first-ever campaign disk for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft will not require players to have a retail copy of the original game to enjoy a new Ghost campaign. Both new recruits and seasoned vets who earned their stripes playing the original Xbox game will enjoy the camaraderie of the shared battlefield. Xbox Live soldiers can experience the intensity of the front lines side-by-side with their battlefield brothers while covering each others' backs and calling out commands using the Xbox Live Communicator headset.
Gamers who purchase the campaign disk will have future access to exclusive downloadable content featuring new missions and maps. Included in the campaign disk will be a dozen game types and 12 multiplayer maps for Xbox Live play, including 4 maps from the original Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon.
"The Clancy brand owes its incredible popularity to gamers who want an intense and realistic gameplay experience," said Alain Corre, Ubi Soft's Managing Director for Europe, the Asia-Pacific region and South America. "With this new campaign disk, Ubi Soft Entertainment can give back to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon fans, providing them with more of their favourite Ghost action."
"Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon is one of our most popular games on Xbox Live and has everyone going wild!" said Michel Cassius, European Director of Xbox Platform, Microsoft. "With Xbox Live, gamers can download exciting new content like, missions and maps, injecting new energy into gameplay, and keeping games like this fresh and engaging."
Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, the Ubi Soft studio credited with originally developing the award-winning Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six franchises, the campaign disk will feature the Cuban campaign from Ghost Recon: Island Thunder (PC) and popular maps from Ghost Recon: Desert Siege (PC). As an added bonus, four additional maps from the original Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon (Xbox) allow new recruits to experience the battlefields of Eastern Europe exclusively on Xbox Live.
