Official Press Release
SOFT AND RED STORM ANNOUNCE TOM CLANCYS GHOST RECON!
ANGELES, CA (May 17, 2001) E3 Booth #624 In 1998
Red Storm Entertainment introduced the world to a top-secret
counter-terrorist task force known as Team RAINBOW. In 2001,
the world willmeet The Ghosts.
Tom Clancys Ghost Recon players are invited to lead
this brand-new squad as they focus on covert military strikes
and international peacekeeping missions that do not always
go as planned. Conducting extensive missions on foot, the
Ghosts occasionally have assistance from troops in tanks,
helicopters and close airsupport. In many cases, they work
with international military forces and NATO to fight against
rising dictators and rebel groups. Be prepared to scope out
the defenses of an enemy, blow up bridges to stop an advance,
raid rebel bases,and rescue an American pilot who gets shot
down deep in enemy territory.
Ghosts are also the squad the Army uses when they need to
push their latest andgreatest equipment and weaponry to the
limit under fire. The squad has accessto the latest weapons
such as an M-16 assault rifle with a grenade launcher mounted
underneath. Or, squad members could be responsible for the
M-136 Anti-Tank Rocket that they have to carry on their backs.
Firepower this intense would knock a normal soldier off his
feet in a second. For The Ghosts, its just another day,
just another job.
brand new game and 3-D engines, Ghost Recon marks Red Storms
return to the Squad based tactical shooter genre
for the first time since 1999s Tom Clancys Rogue
Spear. "We have a new engine, totally new characters,
a new storyline, a new way of controlling the team,"
commented Red Storm's Chief Game Designer Brian Upton. "We
think that even the most battle-hardened Rainbow Six veteran
is going to be excited by where Ghost Recon is taking the
tactical shooter genre."

Entertainment on PC CD-ROM in Q42001.
