Ghost Recon: Future Soldier has been infiltrating various E3 press conferences over the past two years, and now we’ve finally got a release date. Slated for March 6th, 2012, the continuation of the popular franchise includes several elements of future technology: cloaking devices, shoulder missiles, and robots with miniguns.
In traditional Ghost Recon style, the game is still all about pinpoint tactical squad management or, for me, shouting at AI teammates to cover me when I know they can’t hear me. We saw a live-action trailer during E3 2010, along with a gameplay montage with strange accompanying commentary by Joel McHale.
This year, we got to see the interesting use of Kinect with the gunsmith feature, which is a highly detailed, in-depth, motion control-centric gun modding system. Perhaps a bit unnecessary – since I can still browse my menus with my thumbs – but undeniably cool.
If you’re curious about what else you can expect from Future Soldier, Eurogamer engaged in a thorough interview about class mechanics and storyline last year. Get your headset ready for barking orders when Ghost Recon: Future Soldier releases March 6th, 2012 for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the Wii.
