This summer will see the release of Ghost Recon Online from publisher Ubisoft, a third-person, cover-based, multiplayer-focused shooter that will be free to play on PC. The game is being developed by Ubisoft Singapore, and offers “the best qualities of the Ghost Recon franchise in a downloadable, dynamic, PC-based online game.”

In the game’s official announcement press release, Ubisoft specifically mentions that Ghost Recon Online will boast customizable weapons, a rich lobby platform and persistent progression features. For those who love microtransactions, those will be available in Ghost Recon Online as well for the players who love to buy their way to the top.

"Ghost Recon Online takes the best attributes of the Ghost Recon game franchise and brings them online, making the experience of being a Ghost accessible to millions of new players and fans," said Hugues Ricour, senior producer at Ubisoft. "This game was designed from the start to be a free-to-play experience. Our development teams are dedicated to making Ghost Recon Online a truly unique, top-quality online title."
