'Ghost Recon Online' Content Update Adds New Map, Features, Gear

by Rainier on April 26, 2013 @ 12:45 a.m. PDT

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Phantoms is a new multi-player, third-person, cover-based tactical shooter that will be offered free-to-play online, featuring all the best qualities of the Ghost Recon franchise in a downloadable, dynamic, PC-based online game.

With Ghost Recon Online, Ubisoft is delivering the most social, connected and customizable Ghost Recon experience yet. The game offers players the ability to choose between three different classes of Ghost, customize their weapons, deploy cutting-edge military technology, and share intel with their team. Ghost Recon Online also features a rich lobby platform for hosting social and persistent progression features. Ubisoft also will back the game with a full set of services, including regular events and game content updates, customized content based on community feedback, and live support.

The online features complement Ghost Recon Online’s rich graphical environments and maps, which rival the quality of those traditionally seen only in retail games. And while the game is free for anyone to play, players also can purchase premium items and fully personalize their experience.

Based on community feedback, the Ubisoft Singapore development team has crafted a patch containing a host of new content, features and game service improvements that will further enhance the Ghost Recon Online experience.

Attica Heights – Ghost Recon Online goes to Singapore

Leading the charge is the brand-new map: Attica Heights – a high security building set against the iconic skyline of Singapore's business district. Attica Heights is the second map designed for the Holdout game mode and forces players to make quick tactical decisions in a unique split-level environment. The verticality of the map takes the fight on and directly above the vital capture point, splitting the teams’ focus between two floors and giving players alternate routes to the action.

Try Before You Buy - Firing Range and Field Testing

Players will be able to fully test any weapon in the Firing Range. Whether it be firing on the move or behind cover, assessing the weapon damage on virtual targets or getting a better feel of a weapon’s handling and recoil, the Firing Range will enable players to optimize the selection of weapons within their arsenal.

With new tiers of weapons unlocking as players level up within Ghost Recon Online, the Field Testing system will award temporary trial versions of the weapons as they become available. These trial versions can be taken into three standard matches and are a great way to test a weapon’s performance in real battlefield situations.

The OMEGA Pack – Armed to the teeth

Security for the mysterious Attica Heights facility is handled by the elite OMEGA Private Military – the poster boys for the OMEGA Pack. These urban-specialists use brand-new gear and weapon designs that are optimized for close quarters combat with short ready times and high rates of fire. And now players will be able to optimize their own equipment load-outs with new headgear and upgraded weapons sporting new camouflage, all from the OMEGA Pack.

Project TOPOS: Beta Map Testing

Project TOPOS: Beta Map Testing allows the community to play prototype maps with their clan mates and most importantly, help improve the design of the maps with their feedback on the forums. More feedback = Better maps.

Mystery Boxes and Bundles – New ways to gear up

0.11.0 also delivers more ways for players to get their hands on the right gear for the job. Four new bundles will ease the players' progression as they level up, giving them all the essential equipment they could need. Players looking for vintage, limited-edition weapons can now find them in the new Mystery Boxes. Each box has a possibility of dropping rare and valuable items, adding a hint of chance to a game where luck don't live.
