TOM CLANCY’S GHOST RECON PHANTOMS® NOW AVAILABLE ON STEAM AND PC
A new chapter of Ghost Recon begins with Ghost Recon Phantoms
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA– April 10, 2014 Today, Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Phantoms is now available on Steam and Windows PC. Formerly Ghost Recon Online, Ghost Recon Phantoms launches with a new identity, new features and worldwide distribution.
A brand-new gaming experience built upon community feedback
Ubisoft has built a new identity for Ghost Recon Phantoms that includes a new background story, new user interface as well as new character and weapon designs for all three classes. Three maps have also been updated with a complete lighting and level redesign. Players will also be able to fully customize their weapons and characters with the new ModMaster feature to help them stand out on the battlefield.
In addition, matchmaking has been improved to guarantee a fair gaming experience by taking into account player skills and level of equipment. To start new players off on the right foot, the new user experience has been retooled to offer players access to better weapons, sooner.
“Steam is always a cornerstone of the distribution strategy of any PC tactical team-based game like Ghost Recon Phantoms. The additional exposure we are getting through Steam will further increase our already 5-million-strong user base,” said Corey Facteau, producer.
To guarantee the best gaming experience around the world, Ubisoft will open new servers in Asia, Australia and South America, in addition to those already covering Europe and North-America.
A new trailer and a strong presence in major gaming events
“The launch trailer is an accurate portrayal of the new DNA of the game. Sleeker, more refined and looking better than ever, it showcases the new character design in a map that our veterans know very well, the Xinyi District. The intense action sequence is just a peek into the intense combat of the game and reinforces the Ghost Recon Phantoms belief that by fighting as a team, you prevail,” Corey Facteau explained.
The trailer was directed by Patrick Clair, who has previously worked with Ubisoft on trailers for Watch Dogs TM and Tom Clancy’s The Division TM, but is now best known for his work directing the title sequence of the HBO hit show True Detective.
“For PAX East attendees, we will be at the Ubisoft booth where you can meet members of the development team as well as get hands-on time with Ghost Recon Phantoms. We will also be present in other gaming events in Europe, where we will organize exhibition matches between MOBA and FPS pro teams, to demonstrate our unique team-based gameplay,” Corey Facteau added.
