On Ghost Recon's 20th Anniversary Showcase, Ubisoft announced Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline, a new free-to-play, massive PvP shooter grounded in the renowned Ghost Recon universe.
Ghost Recon Frontline will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Stadia, Luna and Windows PC via Ubisoft Connect, and will include full cross-play available at launch. Players can register here for a chance to play in early tests and to get the latest news and updates. The first closed test will run from 14th October to 21st October, for PC players in Europe only.
Ghost Recon Frontline is developed by Ubisoft Bucharest, which had previously worked on Ghost Recon Wildlands as well as Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Ghost Recon Frontline will be free-to-play with worlds consisting of 100+ players and PvP first-person military experience.
In Ghost Recon Frontline, players will discover the Drakemoor island, an open world full of diverse landmarks and biomes. The game features a large set of tactical support tools, offering players complete freedom in strategic gameplay throughout various game modes. Expedition, the game’s flagship mode, will offer a new take on the ever popular battle royale genre. This mode will feature more than 100 players in teams of three. The teams, or squads, will have to work together to complete dynamic objectives across the massive open map. One particular note of interest is that there will be no converging circle. Instead, once a squad is done collecting intel, they will have to head to a drop zone and call for an extraction. When the extraction is initiated, all teams will know the position of the extraction and will try to intervene. Players will have to play tactically to successfully escape and win the match. Additional modes will also be available at launch.
Ghost Recon Frontline also offers a unique and advanced class system, allowing players to upgrade and customise each contractor to fit their strategy. Three classes of contractors will be available during the first closed test with more available at launch:
- Assault Class provides great sustainability in close range fights and overall proficiency manoeuvres.
- Support Class offers superior protection with fortification abilities.
- Scout Class can easily recon the area for the squad, revealing and pestering enemies from a distance without fear of retaliation.
Players will be allowed to switch between different contractors in the heart of battle, making each game unique and highly tactical.
“We can’t wait to see players’ reactions during the first test of Ghost Recon Frontline. We will be working hard to adjust the game accordingly throughout the several live phases planned before launch, as we want to deliver the most polished and entertaining experience possible for players.” said Bogdan Bridinel, Creative Director at Ubisoft Bucharest.
In celebration of the franchise's 20th anniversary, players can download the first game of the series, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, for free on Ubisoft Connect. In addition, the Fallen Ghost DLC is free to access for all Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands players, and the Deep State Adventure DLC is free to access for all Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint players on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Stadia and Windows PC via Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store until 11th October.
