Besides the half a second of those ringwraith-looking guys.

Maybe not as recent as you were thinking, but at E3 '06 EA released this trailer for CnC 3.

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/e3-2k6-command/10885 (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/e3-2k6-command/10885)

It has jets, tanks, missiles, alarms.  Everything an action-packed trailer needs. ;)

There has just been an interesting post on the Ghost Recon Facebook group.  It says 'This is going to be a live-action video', obviously hinting there is a new trailer on its way.

Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: flyboy424 on March 26, 2010, 06:00:11 PM
I've been thinking about the trailer, and what it tells us about the story.  It seems to be set in Russia, perhaps with the Ultranationalists again (that featured in the very first game).  This must mean the GRAW storyline is over, and I severely doubt now we'll see a tie-in with the HAWX storyline.  No indication if Captain Mitchell will make another appearance either, so its possible this could be set after HAWX and will perhaps be closer to the Endwar era.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: N-11 Commander Ordo on March 26, 2010, 06:30:51 PM
like a midway point between GRAW and Endwar, it seems. maybe, since Mitchell wont be the PC, he will be your commander. since in Endwar, I belive, he is the general, right?
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: flyboy424 on March 26, 2010, 06:54:08 PM
HAWX starts off in GRAW 2 and fast forwards to around the time of EndWar (2021) with Mitchell still as a Captain in Ghost Recon, so its uncertain what rank Mitchell will have if it is set around that time.  Since there is a 6 year gap in the middle of HAWX it could be possible that GR:FS is set in that instead, which means there would still be a possibility for another HAWX - Ghost Recon tie-in in the future.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: flyboy424 on April 05, 2010, 05:22:30 PM
On the UK Xbox 360 dashboard, Inside Xbox's OXM report has a video out now featuring an interview about GR: FS.  The main focus of the interview was on the squad dynamics, and how you will have a 'snap-in, snap-out' squad gameplay.  This was described as being something that will let you 'snap-in' to a friend (hinting at full co-op campaign) to perhaps cover their rear, or 'snap-out' to break off from the squad and perhaps scout out ahead.  It sounds like interesting stuff, and when asked about how the developers feel about the upcoming CoD and MoH games, they said GR: FS is completely different and they're not worried at all.

Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: Adenn'verd Ijanya on April 11, 2010, 05:03:55 PM
You can also be invisible in Battlefield: 2142, and Halo :P But, of course, this seems way more 1/2 sci-fi, 1/2 modern. It's a futuristic game, but looks like what I think what year the game takes place in. I'm thinking 2023 (but I've never played Endwar, nor read the book, nor read up on it, so I'm not accurate).

Also, did you guys see the couple pages about it in the May edition of OXM? The game looks INSANEly better than even what the live action trailer makes it look like. Yeah, I know. Insanely better than what's already insane.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: flyboy424 on April 12, 2010, 02:39:26 PM
There is an article up on Joystiq about GR: FS.  It seems we'll get UCAVs now, plus everything we saw in the live-action trailer.  It also confirms that it won't be set in Mexico, so Russia is most likely now.  Soldiers seem to be more class based now, with recon, engineer and sniper classes mentioned.  It also seems this 'snap-in/snap-out' gameplay has you literally snapped to a team-mate, with you moving where they move, and you only controlling the direction you look whilst snapped-in.

Just announced on the GR Facebook page, Future Soldier has been pushed back to an early 2011 release.  I guess it at least means the release schedule this autumn is going to be slightly less hectic, and Ubisoft get some more time to polish the game.

Yeah, talk about a crazy fall for gaming. Let's see, we've got

Halo: Reach
Medal of Honor
Call of Duty: Black Ops
and we did have GRFS.....i feel like im missing something.....but anyway, even if there's nothing else, that's a lot of shooters coming out near eachother. It'll be one heck of a dogfight for sales.

I think that's one of the main reasons GoW 3 isnt coming out till next spring. If they released this year, it'd be lost in the others.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: flyboy424 on May 19, 2010, 12:32:14 PM
As far as I know HAWX 2 is still on for an autumn release as well.  Also, I know its not a shooter, but the new Formula 1 game is due out in September too so I'm going to be devoting quite a bit of time to that when its released.  In fact, looking at a release calender on Eurogamers for this year, it looks like there are quite a lot of big-name titles coming out some time in the autumn.

I think it's more of a 'never been done IN ghost recon before' thing. Because of course other games have had soldiers turn invisible.

Post by: flyboy424 on June 18, 2010, 04:51:59 AM
If you watched the Gamespot interview I posted a link to, they say that the invisibility cloak in GR: FS is not perfect.  Sometime it will stutter, sometimes it will get jammed by the enemy, and it doesn't hide your heat signature so any enemies using IR goggles can still see you, so the cloak isn't perfect.  Sure, its not the first time invisibility has been done but I think from all that was said in the interview it is probably the best implementation of it.

Agreed. And i also noticed that the cloak doesnt stop your shadow. At some parts in the gameplay demo you could totally see your shadow and your buddies shadows moving around.

The rating doesn't ruin the game.  I know it means you won't be able to get it yet, but that doesn't mean you can moan here about every game you're too young to buy.  If game ratings in the US are anything like here in the UK, they are done to the exact same standard as movie ratings.  These games would have been giving these rating for a reason.

You would think that releasing the beta would be a good marketing idea for now gives them PLENTY of time to work on the bugs and they can cycle through all the bugs....

2 things of interest with GRFS right now.  First, a new Free-to-play Ghost Recon game called Ghost Recon online has been announced with a closed beta coming this summer.  Second, the box-art for GRFS has been revealed on Xbox.com and it reveals that the game will be Kinect compatible (presumably mostly for hand signals).

We got a release date!  6th March 2012, which just happens to be the same day as a certain other major game called Mass Effect 3.

Still nothing more on the beta yet, just to expect it some time in January.

Why does every developer release games on the same day? Saints Row 3, Assassin's Creed: Revelation, and Halo: Anniversary all come out the same day, now GR:FS and Mass Effect 3 are on the same day too?

Well Ubisoft just pulled a suprising move /sarcasm. Anyway GR:FS pushed back to May 22nd for U.S and May 24th for Europe. Beta was also pushed back to April.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: flyboy424 on April 06, 2012, 02:35:08 PM
So, the beta finally got dated.  19th April to 2nd May.  Only ways to get in are to own Splinter Cell: Conviction or pre-order GR: FS on Xbox 360 (there will also be give-aways as well, of course).

The beta will feature the following:

3 classes: Rifleman, Engineer and Scout.
2 maps: Pipeline and Mill.
2 game modes: Conflict and Saboteur (only available after 26th April).
12-player matches.
Xbox 360 and PS3 only.

Also announced is Ghost Recon Network, the now obligatory online companion service coming to browsers, smartphones and tablets.  As ever you can track all your stats in it, and of course there will be exclusive weapons and skins to unlock through it, however it does also let you access the Gunsmith feature with the full 3D menu shown off at E3.  No details (from what I can see) on if it'll be free (like Bungie.net or Battlelog) or subscription (like CoD Elite).

Oh, and for PC players its been announced your version has been pushed back to 15th June.


And one more thing, I might be able to pre-order this game after all.  If I do I'll likely get it from Amazon which will give me the Drilling Ship co-op DLC pre-order bonus.

Thinking about this is making me want to do some GRAW 2 or perhaps RS: V2 co-op with someone now....

Been looking around on the official GR website, it seems that some uPlay members who have their Xbox Live or PSN account synced will get an e-mail invite to the beta as well.

EDIT

Also, I watched the multiplayer preview earlier on and was very excited to see the engineer class getting the SA80 L22 carbine.  Its a weapon that I've wanted to see in a game for a long time as I've held one in real life and it looks gorgeous IMO.

And for playing GRAW 2 co-op online, its a double-bank holiday weekend here so apart from Sunday day-time when I'll be at a family get-together (no doubt playing on my Xbox with my cousins yet again ;) ) I've got until I go to bed monday evening to play with you.

I downloaded the Beta, I'm fairly excited for it to come online and to test it out.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: flyboy424 on April 19, 2012, 04:04:33 PM
So tried a few games in the beta and so far not too impressed.  The cover system is a bit fiddly and the starter weapons are not the best.  So far the only class I've been able to get a decent score with is the Scout, and that is simply because it has a sniper rifle meaning I can actually aim at the enemy with a reasonable chance to hit (hopefully the scope I've bought for the engineer starting weapon will make that class a little more effective).

The unlock system is a little weird as it allows you to purchase the upgrades you want with upgrade points urned by leveling up, but many upgrades are themselves only available once you reach a certain level.  This does sound great, but it does also make it harder to get into the game to begin with as I played 3 matches and my team lost each one with the final score was something ridiculous like 250 to 7 because its objective-based and my team could never get anywhere near the objectives since the opposition seemed to be co-ordinated and all had upgrades unlocked making their gear way more effective then ours.  Upgrades are also done separately for each team (Ghosts and Bodark) so you'll have to upgrade each class twice.

There is some good stuff though, like the ability to change the camo on your weapons to a range of national styles (and yes, I have already put British camo on the Ghost weapons in each class), and some of the equipment like the sensor grenade which reveals enemy positions for a short time or the stun-gun which can be equipped instead of a pistol and is actually quite effective (having been on the receiving end myself).

Overall, not being much of a multiplayer person this is probably not a game I'll do MP in when its released, but I will at least give this another try to see if my new upgrades do improve the gameplay, as well as having friends online to co-ordinate with.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: Drake Vhett on April 19, 2012, 04:42:13 PM
I just did one match, and I was top of the team. The cover is iffy, as well as shooting, but I'll get used to it.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: N-11 Commander Ordo on April 21, 2012, 04:02:28 PM
Having played the Beta for the last few days, I've got a few comments to make.

1: It has been an absolute nightmare simply trying to play the game. Half the time, the 'Service is Unavailable', and nothing can be done. You just have to wait a few hours for Ubisoft to get their crap together and get the servers back online. When you do actually get a game, most of the time, it lags so badly that it is literally unplayable. So basically, only 1 in 4 attempted matches work successfully. And to top it off, in half of the matches that do work, the servers give out mid-game, or you get kicked out for no real reason. This whole system has left me very frustrated.

2: Actual gameplay is pretty standard, and when it works properly, I enjoyed it. I personally had no problem with the cover system myself. I'm not a huge fan of the objectives in this game, I would actually prefer a simple 'Slayer' or 'Deathmatch' mode, but it is still fun on the rare occasion it works.

3: Gunsmith. I am in love with this portion of the game and everything about it. I am dying to try it on the Kinect. Honestly there's not much else to say on the matter :P

So, overall, I'm extremely frustrated at how badly it works. The excuse of 'It's just a Beta' only takes you so far, and this goes way beyond that. However, Gunsmith is awesome and the game itself is pretty fun.

Post by: flyboy424 on April 21, 2012, 05:59:51 PM
Yeah, I think that sums it up Drake.

Playing with Drake, Ordo and Talo yesterday I felt like the support bonus points were very unbalanced.  Assists are the major one as I got hardly any when using my rifle (I think I only noticed 2 or 3 times all night when it came up on screen, despite being sure I'd hit many more then that), yet when I tried out the UAV Drone on Mill in I think the second match with it I scored just over 10,000 points with no kills, the highest number of points of anyone that match.

While the multiplayer has started to grow on my a little bit more as I get unlocks and begin to understand the mechanics better, its still unlikely I'll end up playing it in the full game.
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: Drake Vhett on April 21, 2012, 06:11:09 PM
I do believe the GR:FS Beta server is down as well, as from last night to now I have been unable to get on.

Post by: flyboy424 on April 21, 2012, 06:54:53 PM
I looked at the known problems thread and they said that they are aware of the issue of people loosing connection mid-game and their solution is to regularly restart the servers.  No mention of the whole "Unable to connect to Ubisoft Service" problem when starting the game though....
Title: Re: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Post by: N-11 Commander Ordo on April 23, 2012, 02:09:49 PM
The game was working better yesterday, I was able to up my rate of successful matches from 1/4 to about 3/4  xD


Playing with Drake, Ordo and Talo yesterday I felt like the support bonus points were very unbalanced.

 the multiplayer has started to grow on my a little bit more as I get unlocks and begin to understand the mechanics better

I agree that the support bonuses are iffy. And I think there needs to be much more incentive to cover the person interacting with the objective. If you're lucky and have a smart team, they'll do it just because they know they need to, but a smart team is rare. Most of the time I find myself hanging out there, a$$ in the wind, getting torn apart every time I try to take the objective, just cause my teammates don't have a reason to try and help me.

Yeah, I'm liking it more so now that it was working better and I got more used to it. However, I would still rather play a straight up Slayer mode, because these objectives make it almost impossible to win without a smart team. At least in Slayer, you can will your team to victory just through sheer number of kills....

In other words: "We'll play Co-Op".

And it will be awesome  8)
