'Ghost Recon Online' Open Beta Adds New Features, Veteran Rewards

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.

To show their gratitude towards beta players, the Ghost Recon Online team has announced the start of a generous Veteran Rewards program. Players will be granted up to $30.00 in in-game currency, based on their tenure and experience. This program is accessible to players who join the game before its official launch this spring and the rewards will be automatically credited within two weeks after launch.

The team has also been working on two new features: Smoke Grenades and Tactical Insertions, which will respectively allow players to obscure the battlefield and to spawn next to their teammates.

“Tactical Insertion and Smoke Grenades are an important gameplay update that we believe will impact strategic gameplay on the battlefield,” said Simon Davis, Lead Game Designer. “For the first time in the history of our game, we will make the features available first in a public playtest, so that our players can try them out and give their feedback. We want to make sure it is fine tuned for launch.”
