PSA: First Ghost Recon DLC Drops July 3
In the torrent of freaking out about Diablo 3 and Max Payne 3, you might have forgotten that Ubisoft has their own new installment of a (somewhat) blockbuster franchise, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which drops May 22 here in North America. If this matters to you – and it might, since it actually looks like it’s going to be good – you’ll want to make a note that the first DLC pack has just been announced.
Called Arctic Strike, the packet adds several new multiplayer maps, a brand new multiplayer mode, another Guerrilla Mode co-op map, plus 6 new weapons. If you want it, it’s 800 Microsoft points, or 9.99 regular, boring old US dollars on Playstation Network.
As always, we know how much you love press releases, so here it is in its entirety.
