Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is an upcoming cover-based shooter game from Ubisoft. It is the fourth title in the series and takes place further in the future than the previous installments. Naturally, this means that more advanced military technologies are available, such as the new Optical Camo system which makes you harder to see when activated. The players also have customized weapons and controllable drones at their disposal.
The single-player campaign of GRFS will take you to Asia, Middle East, Africa, and other regions. As a leader of a Ghost squad, you will have to fight an ultranationalist Russian faction that has taken over the country and started invading nearby nations. Of course, the game has a multiplayer as well; several co-op and competitive modes are available, including the new Guerilla (survival) mode.
The following major US retailers are offering incentives to gamers who pre-order Ghost Recon: Future Soldier from them:
- GameStop: Signature Edition with a Moscow Suburbs co-op map, 2 bonus weapons, 48 custom headgear skins, and Penny Arcade weapon skins featuring Twisp and Catsby.
- Amazon: Drilling Ship Co-Op Map, and a $10 credit (consoles only).
- Best Buy: three exclusive weapons (MN 91/30 Mosin-Nagant rifle, M40 sniper rifle, and another unlockable weapon).
- Walmart: no exclusive DLCs, but you do get $10 store credit if you pre-order GRFS for either Xbox 360 or PS3 from them.
