Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier's Florent Guillaume Talks Tactics, The Future & The Beta
Written By
View author's profile

Ubisoft Paris' Ghost Recon: Future Soldier has now gone through more delays than Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy... okay, so it's not that bad, but it's had its fair share of those pesky delays.

We caught up with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier's Level Designer, Florent Guillaume, in London recently to talk about what they've done with that extra time. We also touch upon whether the new cinematic sequences detract somewhat from the serious, tactical shooter that the franchise is famed for, what we can expect from the beta and much, much more. It's a Ghost Recon bonanza and you're all invited!

 Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is currently slated for a March 2012 release.

@4: As did I, and with that, I have become hesitant on this game being any good. They drop the Beta without any mnetion of why and when they will actually have it again, and I still don't even know when it is.

@7 Not true. All you need is just a copy of Splinter Cell: Conviction, there's no code. It's kind of like how the Halo Reach demo was, just needed a copy of Halo: ODST to play the beta.

I'm not a huge fan of Cliffy B but I totally agree with his thoughts on the current state of "betas" in the industry. If your "beta" comes out a month before the game is out, its not a "beta" its a multiplayer demo, sack up and call it what it is. Some game companies still know what the term beta means, like Naughty Dog and Epic (the two most recent examples) because unlike most other "betas" that come out, their betas were released WELL in advance of the ship date and were released to gather feedback from players to make adjustments the final release.

When a game like GRFS or MoH (or even BF3 coming up) releases a multiplayer demo a month before the game comes out and calls it a beta its kinda annoying. Very little comprehensive information and feedback can be gathered and implemented in 30 days (which, for most games means the game has already been shipped to manufacturer). I feel like games hide behind the term beta to deflect any criticism they may recieve, despite the fact that the "beta" that is being criticized is final code.

Good stuff, been way too long since I had pleasure to play last Ghost Recon game. Can not wait till this comes out in March of next year, unless they push it again, which at this point wouldn't really surprise me...

Beta should free to anyone with Splinter Cell Conviction on their gamercard considering how long it took them. Maybe it was just a ploy to have people keep their games, so new buyers would not be able to get it used. This also sounds like a demo, not a beta that will be used to improve the final game. Beta or not, I still want Future Soldier. The new videos make the game look a lot better than the original ones they showed.

This looks pretty cool. I was a big fan of the GR games on the last gen, but the ones for this gen lost my interest. This looks like it could rekindle it. Off-topic, give the guy a break; he speaks English a lot better than I speak French.

@34: I'm looking SO forward to RS, but I can't wait for this too. And I still like playing Conviction from time to time.

I really hope this game is worth the wait. I think it is, but I'm hoping I'm not let down by it.

dunno how owsom the game will be; after the demo shown on E3, I have my doubts, looks like the same syndrome of conviction ( fast paced, easy, no tactic, no challenge ) :(

I AM SOOO STOKED FOR THIS TO COME OUT!!Ghost Recon 2 & Summet Strike are my most memorable online competitive experiences for original Xbox, and Halo 2 and Rainbow Six 3 and Black Arrow are up with them also. but those games are what i only played online for original xbox thats really it man i played those 5 games for years n years AHHH I MISS THOSE ALL NIGHTERS!!, but then GRAW 1 n 2 plus Rainbow Six Vegas 1 n 2 are easily the most played online games for me on this gen, so you can see i am sooo happy for this to be released!!! This is just the most consistent franchise of releasing truly amazing, immersive, superb gameplay, awesome graphics, some of the most ammount of online game modes in a game (GRAW HAD OVER 70 ways to customize the game modes!!) truly skill needed games, addictive onoine, most complete package co-op, addictive and near percetc single players. ITS JUST THE MOST CONSITINTLEY AWESOME FRANCHISE CREATED, better than halo cause ODST and REACH just werents the same, and CALL OF DUTY 3 n MW2 sucked. so ya Ghost Recon is my SHIIIIIaT. im skipping Gears of War, CoD, n Battlefield 3 cause im just gonna play all the other aamzing games like Skyrim, Silent Hill Downpour, new Resident Evil, Deus Ex, Rage, new METRO, PREY 2, BIOSHOCK and more....

Coudn,t agree more except the fact i still going to play BF3 its def as good as the multiplayer in Ghost Recon. Other then that i,m not to fast about Gears Of War 3 its just the same graphics with some new gameplay add-ons so i skipp that to another time mabye. But yeah Ghost Recon Multiplayer looks sweet so far!!
