Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Arctic Strike DLC Detailed

View author's profile

Next week sees the release of the first DLC package for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier with Arctic Strike, adding three new multiplayer maps, a brand-new multiplayer mode, a Guerrilla Co-Op map and six new weapons, alongside a boost to the level cap.

The new multiplayer mode is called 'Stockade', and brings an objective-based game type to multiplayer in which dead players get sent to the back of a respawn queue (the Stockade) and return when an ally manages to bag a kill. Completing an objective meanwhile, releases all dead players from the Stockade, turning the tide of a battle in a split second.

Arctic Strike's three new maps are called Riot, Skyline and Evicted, offering a trio of different urban environments, while the Arctic Base Guerrilla Mode map (pictured) takes the co-op mode to the snowy tundra. And the six new weapons are as follows:

  • Rifleman: F2000 and CZS805
  • Scout: Type 05 JS and BT MP9
  • Engineer: OCP-11 and Mk17

As well as that lot, there's also new achievements to snap up and a level cap increase of +10. You'll be able to download the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Arctic Strike DLC from July 17th for 800 Microsoft Points.

I still can't believe they decided on 35 achievement points for this. It' such a strange, and low number to settle on.

@1 How so? It's a new mode, 3 new maps, 6 new weapons, a new Guerrilla mode map, higher level cap and 2 achievements. That's much more than what you get in a similarly priced Halo map pack and IMO better than what you get in the MW3 Collection DLC.

I think im just going to finish the campaign and get one of my charecters to level 50 and that it. I dont understand why Ubisoft would allow one of their best games to be this dyfunctional. Who's idea was it to have two press start buttons at the start of the game ?

@8 Why? This is more content in a piece of DLC than a lot of other games will give you.

I don't see the problem with the small gamerscore. To me it's more about completion than gamerscore. That being said, I've had to sort of force myself to play this, get my money's worth. Don't think I'll be getting it.

@5 Your comment is utter crap. Why? Because you fail to even specify why you feel this way. Unlike number 4 who states why he is happy with the DLC. How many shooters do you know of that releases DLC for $10 that comes with more than just maps. This is honestly a better deal than most. For example.

COD4:MW Map Pack - 4 Maps for $10
COD:MW2 Map Pack #1 - 5 Maps(3 new + 2 old maps from COD4) for $15
COD:MW2 Map Pack #2 - 5 Maps(3 new + 2 old maps from COD4) for $15
Crysis 2 Decimation Pack - 5 Maps + 2 equipments for $10(7 pieces of content in total)
Crysis 2 Retaliation Pack - 4 Maps for $10

Ghost Recon: FS Arctic Strike - 3 Brand new Maps + 1 new mode + 6 new weapons + 1 new map for co-op + a raise in level cap to 60 which = a total 11 pieces of contents, plus you can level up your characters(mostly to unlock the new weapons or so you can earn more credits to use or both) and you get two achievements to earn as well.

So if you really like playing the MP for this game then it is a very good deal and not utter crap.

It's because kids don't bother to really think about it when using mommy & daddy's credit card. But yeah, one of the most diverse collections for dlc, but because it's not cod, "it's not worth it" (but I do admit the lag in this game is ridiculous)

I have never had any massive problems with this game. Maybe the odd game gets a bit slow or once every two weeks I get disconnected, but so what? Every game gets lag good or bad. Crying about it won't make it faster. I enjoy and play this game often. Maybe no one else seems to like but some of us still do. So do everyone here a favour and take your belly aching and let everyone else enjoy this DLC.

I agree that the 35G is a little odd and it's not like they were lacking ways to link achievements to the DLC. Could have had one for Level 60, one for winning so many games on the new game-mode and one for getting a kill with each of the new weapons etc.

Most people seem to be bitching more about the 35G than the content itself. I personally am a little annoyed that they chose such an obscure number but the content is definitely not lacking. Day one purchase for me.

I def agree the lag is utterly outrageous. I love kill cams that show cursors and bullet traces 8, 9, 10 feet from where I am actuallly running.

I don't get the 'this game sucks' comments... I rarely have lag issues... certainly no more than CoD games; maybe I'm lucky.

& I am finding this game has a much better pace of gameplay (less like pacman with guns ie everyone running around a maze with no tactics), & a better community & better game modes & maps. I think it all sits together very nicely & doubt I will go back to scatter shot shit storms that are CoD MP modes (except zombies).

I'm surprised it wasn't 800/$10 Bucks for only 25 points. 10Gs less.

Wow everyone quit your bitching about this DLC. If you don't like the game fine, but you can't deny that for those that do like the game this is a very resonably priced piece of DLC.

And I know this is an achievement site, but I honestly don't think the achievements were at the top of Ubi's list of priorities with this pack, and that's fine with me. DLC isn't there to increase your GS, it's there to add on to a game that you hopefully already enjoy. The only people who would be idiots for purchasing this are people who hate the game and buy it for the sole purpose of getting an extra 35G.

I'm just going to come out and say it. Ghost Recon is a great game. The campaign was amazing. I love the multiplayer except for a few issues that I hope the developers get around to fixing.

Multiplayer has to many server disconnects. I have never been disconnected from so many games in my gaming career. I don't know what this is all about. I also don't like the fact that when a "host migration" happens the game gets reset. The time doesn't reset but any forward progress you may have made toward an objective gets reset which I think is crap. Like CoD when a host migrates the game should resume where it was left off. Other than these two issues I love the multiplayer. Definitely a change of pace. Takes a lot of teamwork and strategy and not just a run and gun.

When it comes to DLC I couldn't see a better package for $10. GamerScore!? are you really crying about GamerScore? Who the hell pays attention to that anyways? People just need something to complain about. God forbid they were just satisfied. lol
