Ghost Recon: Frontline is a free-to-play game with 100 player battles

Ubisoft is taking its Ghost Recon series into new territory with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline, a free-to-play, player-versus-player shooter with support for more than 100 players.

The Ghost Recon series is a Ubisoft staple. This 20-year-old military tactical shooter has many entries, dating all the way back to 2001. 2022’s Frontline marks the first time the series is stepping into the massively multiplayer online arena, following up on the disappointing Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

While the game will feature many game modes, the big highlight is on Expedition, where over 100 players will fight on teams of three to complete objectives while trekking across an open-world map featuring multiple biomes. Said objectives consist of interrogating enemies to learn their teammates’ locations (similar to Fortnite), gathering and protecting intel, and surviving during their journey. Victory is claimed by reaching the end and calling in an extraction team to escape.

Ubisoft promises that Expedition will be a highly unique experience for different players. The company highlighted that the game mode can be completed in a variety of ways. Players can call in dynamic cover, vehicles, auto turrets, and more.

Ubisoft also stated that “quicker” modes will hit Ghost Recon Frontline as well. The game will be updated on a seasonal basis with new player classes and game modes.

Though Frontline has no confirmed release date, players in Europe on Windows PC can participate in a beta test on October 14. Ghost Recon Frontline is headed to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia.

Multiversus’ 99% player drop is a lesson in how not to make a free-to-play game

When Warner Brothers' Super Smash Bros.-like fighting game Multiversus launched last year, it was an immediate success. Players flocked to the free-to-play game in its first few months, battling it out as their favorite WB characters. It seemed like the publisher had a rare hit on its hand, breaking through to the mainstream with a genre that's long been painted as a difficultyniche with a high barrier for entry.

Try these 3 Xbox Game Pass horror titles this weekend (June 21-23)
Issac stands tall in the Dead Space remake.

Another weekend is upon us, and you're probably wondering which Xbox Game Pass games you should spend some time with over the next couple of days. Although Halloween is still several months away, the release of a new horror game this week means that I'm recommending some spooky titles from the Xbox Game Pass catalog this time around.

Of course, my first recommendation is that new game, which is developed by Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs developer The Chinese Room and is set on an oil rig. Once you beat that, I recommend you check out EA Motive's remake of a sci-fi horror game classic, as well as a newer title from Striking Distance Studio that was inspired by that same game.
