Update: Ubisoft has responded an inquiry we made about PlayStation Move support for the game, saying that Move is supported in the PS3 version for GRFS‘ gun modification tool, Gunsmith.
Original Story: Ubisoft has released a trailer, new screenshots, and new concept art for Ghost Recon Future Soldier.
The trailer released consists entirely of in-game footage and is narrated by someone at Ubisoft. The video focuses on GRFS‘ four player co-op Guerrilla Mode. The mode can be played alone, via split screen on the same screen for two players, on a LAN, or over the Internet with three other players. Players will have to take on wave after wave of incoming enemies with increasing difficulty in the mode. The first wave is all about stealth, as players will have to take down a base of enemies as quietly as possible, and then hold the position against waves of enemies. Every ten waves, players have to secure and hold a new position. Each Guerrilla map contains 50 waves of enemies.
The goal of Guerrilla Mode is to get the highest score, so players should figure out ways to take down enemies with style to gain the highest amount of points. Players should work with their teammates, as extra points will be awarded for combo kills, which are earned by taking out multiple enemies quickly. Points can also be earned by tagging enemies. A player will earn points for every enemy killed who he or she has tagged. Players will be able to compare their scores with friends via online leaderboards.
Players who survive several waves in a row can get Wave Streak Bonuses, which are items that can help players offensively and defensively. Turrets to defend a perimeter and weapons are shown specifically in the trailer, as is a Claymore, but whether or not that is a Wave Streak Bonus item is unclear. Players who survive long enough can earn an airstrike that will destroy their enemies. The longer that players stay alive, the more powerful the bonuses that they’ll unlock.
The trailer closes with a bit more gameplay footage, the GRFS logo, the game’s final box art with a message to pre-order now, and the Ubisoft ComDev logo.
Of note with the game’s final box art is that it no longer features the “PlayStation Move Compatible” icon that we had reported seeing on the box art in a previous trailer. We will keep you posted if we receive any updates on Ghost Recon Future Soldier‘s Move support.
