Ubisoft reimagines the Ghost Recon Series as a first-person class-based Battle Royale

During their Ghost Recon 20th Anniversary live stream, Ubisoft officially revealed the series’ next entry, Ghost Recon Frontline. Frontline will be a free-to-play PVP first-person shooter that supports up to 100 players, offering player team-based Battle Royale content with a few twists. 

Ghost Recon Frontline is taking the Ghost Recon series back to its FPS roots, and to celebrate this, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, the first game of the franchise, is currently available for free to PC gamers on Ubisoft Connect. This offer will be available until October 11th.  

Closed Beta testing for Ghost Recon Frontline’s PC version is due to start this month for selected European players between October 14th and October 21st. Eligible PC gamers can apply to enter this beta here. This beta will include three player classes, Assualt, Support and Scout, which specialise in close-up combat, fortification building/defensive combat, and long-range/reconnaissance respectively. More classes will become available as Ghost Recon Frontline’s development progresses. 

Frontline will place players into teams of three. With the game’s maximum player count of 102, that means that Frontline games will feature up to 34 teams of players. The game’s primary mode is called Expedition, where player teams will be asked to gather intel, complete objectives, defend locations, and escape the map through a noisy extraction process. When a team attempts to extract their players, opposing teams can take that opportunity to attack steal your extraction. Other modes will be available to Frontline players, some of which are said to be more “casual”. 

Below is Ubisoft’s full announcement video for Ghost Recon Frontline. 

Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Frontline is due to become available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Stadia. The came currently lacks an official release date.
