Ubisoft has announced the latest game in the Ghost Recon series, Ghost Recon Frontline. The game was announced during a special Ghost Recon 20th Anniversary Showcase celebrating the 20th anniversary of the franchise. Ghost Recon Frontline is a new free-to-play multiplayer take on the franchise. For the first time, players will be playing in first-person mode only in Ghost Recon Frontline. The free-to-play shooter will feature huge 100+ player vs player battles with various game modes. Players will be able to choose between a variety of classes that they can upgrade and modify as they progress in the game.
The game, which is developed by Ubisoft Bucharest, will launch with its flagship mode called Expedition. Expedition will have 100 players split into small groups of three. Each three-person squad will be tasked with finding intel that has been placed in a large open-world environment. Once a team has the intel, they will need to call for an extraction. Extractions can be seen by every team on the map so other teams will be working to try and stop the extraction and take it for themselves. Ubisoft Bucharest promises that no Ghost Recon Frontline match will be played in the same way because of the large variety of options and strategies open to players.
Other traditional multiplayer modes are also being included in the game at launch for players who want a traditional or shorter multiplayer experience. Ghost Recon Frontline will receive seasonal updates similar to Ubisoft’s multiplayer juggernaut Rainbow Six: Siege although details on what the seasonal updates will include have not yet been provided.
Players who want to try out Ghost Recon Frontlines can sign up for the PC game tests which will begin, exclusively in Europe, on October 14. No final release date for the game has been given so far.
