Today Ubisoft announced the crossover between free-to-play game Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Phantoms and the Assassin’s Creed series with the launch of a new Assassin’s Creed item pack for Ghost Recon Phantoms. Players can fully customize the three character classes in Ghost Recon Phantoms with armor, headgear and weapons inspired by the Assassin’s Creed franchise. The set will be available for four weeks and features the following items:
- Three new iconic Assassin’s Creed Hoods and Tactical Suits
- Five new top-of-the-line, Tier VII Assassin’s Creed themed weapons (Ak-12 SV AC, PKM SV AC, M3A1 C AC, M960 C AC, M14 Tactical AC)
- Five classic Assassin’s Creed pack weapons (F2000 SP AC, Fiveseven AC, MG36 KV AC, P90 C AC, Sentinel SR-1 AC)
Felix Marlo Flor, Ghost Recon Phantoms art director had some words to say on the crossover initiative:
“The community response was very positive when we released our first Assassin’s Creed crossover during open beta for the Recon class. So we decided to produce a brand new and much more in-depth Assassin’s Creed pack including gear and weapons for all three classes. Bringing Assassin’s Creed into the futuristic setting of Ghost Recon Phantoms while staying true to both worlds was an exciting challenge. We looked at the similarities between the Ghosts and Assassins, both are stealthy, elite warriors, who fight for justice, and fused those similarities to create a crossover that fits naturally into Ghost Recon Phantoms.”
Those keen for an early look at the Assassin’s Creed pack in action can check out the Twitch channel where the Ghost Recon Phantoms community team will be hosting a live stream showcasing the additions.
