Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Video Shows Augmented Reality & Camouflage In Gameplay, Updated Box Art Released

February 23, 2012 Written by Nick Michetti

Ubisoft has released a new video for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier that shows the roles that augmented reality and optical camouflage play in gameplay. They’ve also released updated box art for the game as well.

The video is of former US Navy SEAL sniper/scout Richard “Mack” Machowicz talking about how the video series will show real-life situations seen through the eyes of Future Soldiers. He tells the April 2009 story of how Somali pirates took Captain Richard Phillips hostage. A Spec Ops team with infrared scopes was tasked with performing three synchronized headshots after a tense standoff with the pirates to save him. The team did so successfully and rescued Phillips.

In Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, players are tasked with using augmented reality to mark four captors of a hostage and take them out simultaneously to save the hostage’s life. They first must sneak into a compound undetected in broad daylight, which they do via optical camouflage, allowing them to remain virtually unseen. The soldiers then spot the captors, mark them, and take them down simultaneously. Machowicz then says that the next episode will discuss High Value Targets and the highly customized weaponry used to take them down. The trailer closes with the release date, box art, and a message to “pre-order now.”
