The next Ghost Recon game veers away from the series’ usual formula; rather than a four player co-op campaign, instead it’s set to be a free-to-play battle royale.
Two game modes are available at launch. In the primary mode, Expedition, 100 players compete in teams of three to find and extract intel; matches take place – as is custom in battle royale games – on an island called Drakemoor following an environmental disaster. You can steal other team’s intel and extraction helicopter to scupper their chances of making it off the island alive. The island itself features four biomes and 20 points of interest for players to explore and infiltrate. In order to win the game, you need to collect three pieces of intel and then call for your extraction helicopter, which alerts other teams to your whereabouts, provoking players to stop you leaving successfully.
The second game mode is called Control, a 9v9 domination-style PvP mode which provides a faster pace for players. Ghost Recon Frontline will also have seasons, which looks to add more classes from the existing pool of contractors as well as new game modes. Here’s everything we know about Ghost Recon Frontline so far including upcoming closed test dates.
