New Video Action July 2001 | Rocky

PC Gameplay magazine has released brand new video footage of Ghost Recon in action to European gamers! The footage was shot at E3 and although quite short is of qood quality. It starts with a third person view of one of the Ghosts taking up a prone position under a bush. Taking aim he wastes no time in despatching the unsuspecting enemy crouched behind a wall of sandbags. The magazine also has 2 pages of images, although they are the same shots first shown by Dutch site Tactical Games.

Ghost Recon domain for sale! Cyber squatter's move in on Ghost Recon domains as they percieve value and a fast buck riding on Red Storms latest title. A practice to be congratulated or frowned upon? Make your point.
New Recon Art 16 July 2001 | Rocky
Tactical Games have scooped an exclusive Ghost Recon Art image. Assuming an American date format, it is a sketch from November last year, and depicts two buildings, I am not sure if this is the infamous "pistol whipping" farmhouse scene though.

Modding Ghost Recon 4 July 2001 | Rocky
Red Storm have announced that Ghost Recon will ship with a mission editor similar to the Rogue Spear Editor. That means no map editor, and some unhappy bunnies in the mod community. But does it make a difference? Does it matter to the success of a game if it has full mod support? Does it matter to majority of games or is it purely a fringe interest. Read our new report and draw your own conclusions, then join the discussion and make your opinion known.

Games Mania were at E3 and have posted their first impressions of Ghost Recon, concentrating on comparisons with the R6 series. Gamedex have opened a Ghost Recon section, including a forum.


Ubi Soft Community 1 July 2001 | Rocky
Ubi Soft is gearing up for a brand new community, which will include Ghost Recon. For a quick look at how Ubi Soft Germany produced their on-line games community check out the community link on this page. I would guess that the new dot com community will include a similar forum and perhaps a Fan section similar to the OFP community.
