Mod Synopsis:  A secretive next-generation mod guarunteed to surprise the Ghost Recon community with its originality and refinement. All we know is the following:

  • Several new sub-classes within the rifleman class, each with their own uniform and dedicated weapons.
  • A completely new character class: The Grenadier. The sniper class has been completely removed and replaced (including the class name) from the game. Snipers are now only available as specialists.
  • A ground-breaking non-linear campaign.
  • New training facilities, and training missions, to help you learn various techniques and tactics.
  • Accurate represenations of United States military uniforms and equipment. We have two dedicated Military Advisors on this project.
  • A new style of gameplay, which requires foresight, cunning, and great skill.
  • Tweaked enemy weapons. Enemy combatants now react more like human beings, and not like uber-soldier robots.
  • Brand new sounds for DYNACOMP weapons, sampled from recordings of the real weapons, all 100% original.
  • Other details are still very much under-wraps at this time but keep an eye on the forums for more information.
