Rapper Kendrick Lamar joins Ghost Recon team
Today, Ubisoft announced Kendrick Lamar as the final member of Team Ghost, a select group of four celebrity gamers brought together to promote the highly anticipated video game, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Just as the Ghosts are the most elite soldiers and represent a complete range of skills on the battlefield, each member of Team Ghost is among the best at what they do and plays a unique role on the team. Kendrick joins NBA All-Star Kevin Love, NFL rookie Justin Blackmon, and reality star Coco as the fourth and final member of the team.
Check our Lamar's thoughts on being a leader for the team. Will Team Ghost be a true fighting force, or will traditional star drama stand in the way of gaming dominance?
There is nothing fair, honorable, or just about combat. There is only winning and losing—the dead and the living. The Ghosts don't fret about even odds. They do everything in their power to overwhelm and obliterate the enemy. Future technology is the key to winning an asymmetric battle.
In Ghost Recon Future Soldier join an elite team of highly trained, cut-throat special-ops soldiers. Armed to the teeth with unrivalled combat technology and cutting-edge military hardware, Ghost Recon takes you to the globe's most deadly warzones to hunt down the highest value targets.
