The lights are on
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier launches on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 22, but players can get their hands on the game's multiplayer action before then. Ubisoft has announced details on the beta, which is set to go live in a few short weeks.
The beta will begin April 19 and will continue through May 2 on both platforms. Players can check out the rifleman, engineer, and scout classes, and two game modes. In Conflict, players race to complete objectives strewn throughout the map. After 15 minutes, the team with the highest score wins. Saboteur, set to launch April 26, has players scrambling to find a bomb and then deliver its explosive payload at the opposing team's base. Each mode is playable on the Pipeline and Mill levels.
On the Xbox 360, players can access the beta through their copy of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction or by preordering Future Soldier from GameStop. PlayStation Plus members will get access to the PlayStation 3 version of the beta.
In addition to revealing details on the game's beta, Ubisoft has announced the Ghost Recon Network. Players can track their in-game stats, change their loadouts, or manage their squads online using a Web browser or an iOS or Android device. The service is scheduled to roll out when the game is released on May 22. Members of the multiplayer beta can get a sneak peek at some of its functionality. Take a look at the trailer below for more information.
