Ghost Recon Frontline is a Massive Multiplayer Game With 100-Player Battles

Remember the rumours from earlier today that Ghost Recon Frontline would be a return to the linear style of older Ghost Recon games? Well, forget that, we've got a massive multiplayer game instead!

Ubisoft has now officially revealed Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Frontline, a free-to-play, massive PVP shooter set in the Ghost Recon universe. The game will feature an advanced class system, with each player in a three-person squad choosing different contractors and classes, each offering different abilities and strengths, to keep things tactical. There's an assault class, support class, and scout class, each one basically doing what you'd expect from the name - attack, defence, long-distance, respectively.

Players can also call in tactical reinforcements, including auto-turrets, smoke screen drones, and huge barricades. There's more than one way to win in Ghost Recon: Frontline, and players will have to outthink their opponents in order to grab a victory, collecting intel before heading to a drop zone and calling for extraction. While waiting for extraction, other teams can see your location and attempt to steal your intel - and your win.

It looks and sounds a lot like a battle royale, but Ubisoft isn't calling it a battle royale for the time being. Regardless, you can check out the trailer for the game down below, and sign up for future beta tests on the official website here.

Ghost Recon Frontline is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.

  • It shouldn't surprise me anymore, but Ubisoft's lack of ability to read their community and learn from their mistakes is astounding. How they can be so tone deaf is baffling, to say the least.
  • Not a traditional battle royale it's more like Hunt Showdown
  • Very disappointing. Missed the mark again.

    I’ve never understood why these types of games are fun, guess that’s just what kids nowadays like to play.
  • Money money money. Fuck content. Money money money
  • I wish you could down vote articles.
  • So creative. Thanks for nothing Ubisoft, hit me up when wildlands 2 come out.
  • I love the trailer comments on YouTube. The game is just getting shredded, and deservedly so. Ubisoft seems completely out of touch and has no idea what fans want. People want a traditional GR game, like Future Solder or Advanced Warfighter, not this open world battle Royale crap. This game is already dead after one trailer drops.

    You should see their reddit and FB comments, the whole community is livid and pretty much ready to just write off Ubi as a whole considering they killed R:6 and GR. I do not want a Splinter Cell anymore, I'm too afraid of how bad they'd massacre it.
  • The lack of creativity from a lot of big developers lately is really something, they seriously don't seem to give a shit about creating new ideas anymore.
  • The kids are going to eat this garbage up and spit it out as soon as the next one is dangled in front of them. No thanks, that's going to be a hard pass.
  • Once again Ubisoft royally [email protected] the bed! D.O.A
    Remember when we used to get games that we were interested in, worked, had a beginning, middle and an ending?! We were in a golden age and didn't notice, now we seem to get nothing but recycled sludge and microtransactions! ..Also, we need to drop the term micro from that!
  • The sad thing is with all the discontent here, and on the other sites people have mentioned, this game will still make a killing because there are a lot of, and I'm sorry to say this, really stupid people out there. This is easily evidenced by the annual releases of sports games and massive online multiplayer games that rake in billions despite everyone complaining about those games being repetitive cut/paste buggy, broken piles of crap with little content, and yet, still buy those games year after year.

    The "Tom Clancy" brand means nothing in the video game spectrum no thanks in part to Ubisoft.
