Ghost Recon Frontline is a free to play PvP shooter

the promised one Ghost Recon 20th Anniversary Showcase announcement was the unveiling of a new free-to-play first-person PvP shooter called Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline. The game will feature a new take on the Battle Royale franchise where the goal is not necessarily to be the last team standing and there is no converging circle.

The main “flagship” mode in Ghost Recon Frontline is expedition. Over 100 players are placed in teams of three and sent to an island known as Drakemoor. Here they must collect information from three different locations by completing dynamic objectives. Once the information is gathered, that team can summon an extraction helicopter from one of the three drop zones. Once an extraction is called, all other teams are notified and can attempt to stop the extraction or even steal it for themselves. The first team to leave the island is the winner. Other game modes will also be available at launch. One is Control mode where two teams of nine players fight to dominate an area.

Ghost Recon Frontline has multiple unique contractor classes for different playstyles and can be swapped mid-match if players feel like it. Each class has its own unique skills, consumables and gadgets. In terms of skills, they have one active skill, a major passive skill, and two minor passive skills. Players start with two contractors, each of whom is part of one of three main classes: Assault, Support, and Scout.

Assault is good for close quarters combat, using sensor grenades to locate enemies at close range and for a short period of time keep them from restoring health if the Assault contractor injures them. Support specializes in fortifications, equipped with cover points and automatic turrets. Scout is the scout member and uses a UAV to reveal more distant enemies or even be able to attack a sniper tower at key vantage points. Other classes will be available at launch.

Players can also use a “big set” of tactical support tools such as car turrets, smokescreen drones, and barricades, some of which can be found all over the map. Others can be enabled through the TAC support tool as long as players have enough Requisition Points to collect intelligence, hack into laptops, and take down enemy teams. Like the battle royale maps of many other games, Drakemoor has numerous landmarks, different biomes, and changing weather conditions that can all force players to change their strategy.

Ghost Recon Frontline coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, and PC. The game from Ubisoft Bucharest will offer cross-play between all these platforms when it launches at an unknown date in the future. Before then, players can sign up with the official website of the game to participate in beta testing, although the first of these will be limited to PC players.

In others Ghost Recon anniversary news, players can get Ghost Recon Wildlands’ fallen ghosts DLC for free from the PlayStation Store, as well as the Ghost Recon Breakpoint Deep State Adventure expansion that can be downloaded for free from the in-game store. Both are available for free for a limited time until October 11 to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary.
