Ghost Recon Frontline Brings Battle Royale to the Franchise

Ubisoft has announced a brand new game in the Ghost Recon franchise that will be free-to-play, feature crossplay, and more!

The universe of Ghost Recon is expanding with Frontline. The new free-to-play shooter will dive the series into the Battle Royale genre that allows over 100 players to battle it out together, no matter the platform they choose.

Ghost Recon Frontline will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Stadia, Luna as well as Windows PC through Ubisoft Connect, with full cross-play available at launch. Players can register now at ghostreconfrontline.com for a chance to play in early tests and to get the latest news and updates. 

 

Developed by Ubisoft Bucharest, which previously worked on Ghost Recon Wildlands and Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ghost Recon Frontline offers a new and never-before-seen way for players to explore the Ghost Recon universe, with a free-to-play, 100+ players, PvP first-person military experience.

In Ghost Recon Frontline, players will discover Drakemoor island, an open world full of diverse landmarks and biomes. The game features a large set of tactical support tools, offering players complete freedom in strategic gameplay throughout various game modes.  Expedition, the game’s flagship mode, offers a new take on the battle royale genre. Featuring more than 100 players in teams of three, these squads will have to work together to complete dynamic objectives across the massive open map with no converging circle. Once players are done collecting intel, they will have to head to a drop zone and call for an extraction. When initiated, all teams will know the position of the extraction and will try to intervene, players will have to play tactically to successfully escape and win the match. Additional modes will also be available at launch.

Ghost Recon Frontline offers a unique and advanced class system, allowing players to upgrade and customize each contractor to fit their strategy. Three classes of contractors will be available during the first closed test, with more available at launch:

Assault Class provides great sustainability in close range fights and overall proficiency maneuvers.

Support Class offers superior protection with fortification abilities.

Scout Class can easily recon the area for the squad, revealing and pestering enemies from a distance without fear of retaliation.

Players can even switch between different contractors even in the heart of battle, making each game unique and highly tactical.

The first closed test of Ghost Recon Frontline will start on October 14 for PC players in Europe only. Hopefully we’ll get the chance to check it out soon here in the States as well.
