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 customise 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.
To guarantee the best gaming experience around the world, Ubisoft has opened new servers in Asia, Australia and South America, in addition to those already covering Europe and North-America.
Ubisoft has also announced the crossover between Ghost Recon Phantoms® and Assassin’s Creed® with the launch of a new Assassin’s Creed pack.
