PAX East 2012: Ghost Recon Future Soldier
The very first game that I got to play at PAX East was Ghost Recon Future Soldier, I mean how can you not? One of the most anticipated FPS games that combines co-op, camouflage, drones, grenades that mark targets, and Gunsmithing (Xbox 360) all wrapped up into one game. At PAX East we got to play the multiplayer mode Guerrilla, which is similar to Horde in Gears of War 3 where you fight wave after wave of enemy AI with upto three friends. The first wave you’re required to assassinate a group of enemy soldiers to take over a certain area of the map which will be considered your HQ. The following waves after you’re required to keep the HQ secure and keep the enemy soldiers from recapturing that one area.
Game play feels very tight, crouch to auto activate camouflage and press A to duck into cover. Firing is pretty straight forward, hold to go full auto or tap to semi-fire, of course tapping would be best because close quarters combat tends to get you into trouble. Instead of kill streaks in Guerilla mode, players are given Wave Streaks. Survive a few waves without dying and you’ll be given certain perks, like UAV drone, or camouflage for 30 seconds. If you aren’t able to survive and die in a wave, don’t worry it’s not game over yet. If you die you come back as a UAV Drone. You get to hover around the battlefield marking your targets for your teammates. This is one game to be sure to look out for next month. Ghost Recon Future Soldier is set to release on May 22 on Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3.
