There is a lot I could say about Ubisoft's upcoming Ghost Recon Future Soldier
, the follow up to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
. I could talk about how it is going to be Kinect-enabled
or how we all can get a sneak peek at the multiplayer this January with the multiplayer beta
. Instead, let us watch this video of Ubisoft Creative Director Tommy Jacob explaining the multiplayer gameplay.
:52 seconds in, we get a demonstration of the Engineer class' drone ability. This, for those that cannot watch the video, is essentially a night vision mode in which you hunt down other players and blow them away using a tiny, remote controlled flying drone. That looks like fun. At 2:22, we see the drone again, and it is still awesome.
The drone is one of thirteen pieces of equipment available to players, across three distinct classes: Engineer, Rifleman and Scout. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
until the first three months of 2012. When we have a more concrete date, we will let you know.
