Ghost Recon Future Soldier Tech
On the weapons front we are expecting to see the XM-25's first official appearance in a PC Ghost Recon game. I say "official" because if you know where to look, this weapon has already been modded into the original Ghost Recon. The XM-25 is known as a Counter Defilade Target Engagement System. Defilade is of french origin meaning behind cover, and that's exactly what the XM-25 is designed to do, eliminate targerts concealed behind cover. You can see the XM-25 in CNN's video report now, and probably in Ghost Recon Future Soldier later this year.
On the gadget front, how about an exoskeleton for Ghost Recon 4? Man portable exoskeleton's are starting to reach the stage of deployment readiness, and are therefore entirely convievable for Ghost Recon Future Soldier. Lockheed Martin are investing heavily in their own HULC exoskeleton and we expect to see something along these lines in Ghost Recon 4. View photo's, data and a cool video at Lockheed's HULC site.
Discuss these and other possible Ghost Recon Future Soldier Technology in our GRFS forums.
Ubi Reveals New DRM System
Much like Relic with Company of Heroes, each time a Ubisoft game is started it will phone home using your internet connection to verify that it's legitimate. This will happen via existing Ubi or Uplay accounts.
There are pro's and cons to this method of verifying game sessions, so in our forums we have a Q/A from Ubisoft painting the positive side of the debate, and to kind of balance that out we have a slightly more cynical take from member krise madsen. Which is more accurate? You decide.
Ghost Recon Future Soldier "biggest game".
Yves isn't the only one impressed with potential shown by Ghost Recon Future Soldier's current state of developement; one source has revealed that Ghost Recon 4 is the most solid project they've ever seen, which bodes well for Ubisoft's target of making the latest Ghost Recon compete with the best AAA titles out there.
New Ghost Recon for 2010
Virgin Media's games portal are guessing that the campaign will be based in the jungle and will feature a cloaking device. With a working title of "Predator" we can understand how easy it would be to come to that conclusion, however when they qualify there guesswork with a "you read it hear first", that generally means more guesswork than inside information, so we say take it with a pinch of salt! Discuss here.
Weapon Unlocks in Ghost Recon Future Soldier?
It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to imagine that points gained in Ubisoft titles over the next few months might be used to claim new weapons or unlock features in Ghost Recon Future Soldier when it is released later this year.
If you already have a Ubisoft forum profile, you can log into the Uplay beta site here and get ahead of the game!
Happy New Year!
We've a new site design in progress behind the scenes, an improved FAQ section with the very best in Ghost Recon instant support almost ready to open, a new download section with the largest archive of Ghost Recon mods anywhere, and a fresh look for the forums. It's still the same great team behind the scenes though, motivated to support Ghost Recon the best way we can!
Best wishes for 2010, long live Ghost Recon!
