Big announcement for Ubisoft today as the French firm confirmed the upcoming release of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Currently in development at Ubisoft’s Paris studio, the new Ghost Recon game is scheduled to be released worldwide Holiday 2010.
According to the press release issues by Ubisoft, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will feature cutting-edge technology, prototype high-tech weaponry, and state-of-the-art single-player and multiplayer modes.
We’ve also learned that gamers will have the chance to see the game in action via a Multiplayer Beta this Summer. The invitation will be available for a limited time to those who purchase Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction for the Xbox 360, which releases on 16 April 2010.
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
