Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online

Ubisoft has announced Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online is for PC and good news. It's free! Ghost Recon Online will be a cover based 3rd person shooter and is being developed by Ubisoft Singapore. A closed beta is scheduled to start this summer.

The game will be using the microtransaction model which, according to Ubisoft, will allow players to further equip their characters with premium items to ”personalize their experience”. Meaning you have to buy stuff using real money to 'get better at the game'.

A press release went out earlier today from Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

”The online market has evolved into an important new frontier for video games and for gamers.  With Ghost Recon Online, as well as with other important upcoming projects, Ubisoft is confident that we’re creating high quality, innovative online experiences, and that our customers will benefit from the choice and creativity that Ubisoft brings to the market.”
