Ubi Soft to release Ghost Recon campaign disk

The Ghosts are back and ready for more action as Ubi Soft announces the summer release of a stand-alone Xbox™ campaign disk for the award-winning Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon™. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon is the game that gave Xbox Live players the total battlefield experience and earned numerous awards for its stunning gameplay and features, including an Editor’s Choice award from Official Xbox Magazine.

This first-ever campaign disk for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft will not require players to have a retail copy of the original game to enjoy a new Ghost campaign.. Both new recruits and seasoned vets who earned their stripes playing the original Xbox game will enjoy the camaraderie of the shared battlefield. Xbox Live soldiers can experience the intensity of the front lines side-by-side with their battlefield brothers while covering each others’ backs and calling out commands using the Xbox Live communicator. Gamers who purchase the campaign disk will have future access to exclusive downloadable content featuring new missions and maps. Included in the campaign disk will be a dozen game types and twelve multiplayer maps for Xbox Live play, including four maps from the original Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon.

“The Clancy brand owes its incredible popularity to gamers who want an intense and realistic gameplay experience,” said Tony Kee, Ubi Soft’s vice president of marketing. “With this new campaign disk, Ubi Soft Entertainment can give back to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon fans, providing them with more of their favorite Ghost action without the price tag of a whole new game.”

“Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon is one of our most popular games on Xbox Live and has everyone going wild!” said Andre Vrignaud, director of technical strategy, Xbox Live. “With Xbox Live, gamers can download exciting fresh content like new missions and maps, injecting new energy into gameplay, and keeping games like this fresh and engaging.”
