New GRAW 2 Co-Op Collection, Missions, Maps, Achievements
Written Tuesday, October 16, 2007 By Philip Maples
A few fairly major shooters shipped in the past few weeks and, frankly, Ubisoft is sick of everyone going ga-ga over Halo 3 and Orange Box. GRAW 2 has been lost in the busy FPS season (and Game of the Year conversation). Ubisoft hopes to change that, by getting gamers to pop GRAW 2 back into their 360s. To do this, Ubisoft is releasing the GRAW 2 Co-Op Collection in late October or early November.
The Co-Op Collection offers five brand new campaign missions that continue the story from GRAW 2. There are also nine adversarial maps for online play. Seven of these maps are remakes of GRAW classics, while two are brand-spankin' new. And for those Achievement whores out there, the Co-Op Collection offers nine new Achievements totally 125 Gamerpoints.
Caves - from Ghost Recon
Azcona's squads are using the nearby caves as an operational base for raiding army convoys across the river. Detain and extract the rebel leader and recon the area for any hidden weapon caches.
Railroad Bridge - from Ghost Recon
Intel reports the rebels are moving on a command post 60 clicks southeast of here. Protect the command post, recon the local rail line and hunt down the informant providing intel to the rebels.
Battlefield - from Ghost Recon
The last rebel unit in the area is holed up in the village of Venta. An allied armor unit on the edge of town is pinned down by artillery. Ghosts, knock out the enemy comm transmitter. Then escort the armor through the village.
Plantation - from Ghost Recon: Island Thunder
Intel shows a rebel leader's motorcade is moving through the farms south of here. Take out his convoy and destroy all of the surrounding ADATS before Sabre Seven arrives for extraction.
Swamp Airfield - from Ghost Recon: Island Thunder
Azcona's rebels have occupied a small island airfield. Recon the area for intel on this operation and destroy all aircraft to prevent any means of escape. The landing strip is targeted for an air strike so get out ASAP.
Business Park - Original Map (8 to 12 players)
Narrow alleys connect open courtyards with overlooking balconies in this concrete corporate paradise.
Rooftop - Original Map (8 to 12 players)
Sitting on top of the world, the rooftop structure of a skyscraper has lots of cover and vertical combat.
Castle - from Ghost Recon (12 to 16 players)
The mighty castle walls and excavation within provide lots of cover and CQB, while thick wooded countryside offers ample stealth and sniping opportunities.
Prison - from Ghost Recon: Island Thunder (4 to 8 players)
This dilapidated structure has many paths in and out.
Thanks goes to IGN.
