Ubisoft has announced Ghost Recon Frontline, a 100-player free-to-play shooter set in the Tom Clancy’s universe heading to consoles and PC.
The game was formally revealed towards the end of yesterday’s Ghost Recon 20th anniversary showcase, as previously teased. Players will be dropped in squads of three onto a location known as Drakemoor island. Once there, they’ll complete objectives, collect intel and then try and head to an extraction point to escape. But not before every other squad tries to stop them.
We’re promised a “new take on the battle royale genre” with dynamic objectives and no converging circle. Players will also get to choose a class for their contractor, with three available from the off. These include the Assault Class for close range combat, the Support Class with fortification skills and the Scout Class for recon. You’ll apparently also be able to switch between these contractors at will as it suits your needs.
The shooter is being developed by Ubisoft Bucharest, who worked on both Ghost Recon Wildlands and Ghost Recon Breakpoint. While there’s no release date yet, players in the UK and Europe on PC can sign up here for the first closed test. That’ll take place between October 14 and October 21.
There’ll be additional tests down the line up until the game’s launch, whenever that will be. Ghost Recon Frontline will land on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC. You can check out the reveal trailer and full announcement video for yourself down below.
