Ubisoft really has really stepped up the marketing push for Ghost Recon: Future Solider after going almost dead silent on the game after last year and the announced Kinect support on the Xbox 360 (now apart of the better with Kinect campaign). The theme of this game is “to fight dirty, because if you fight fair you’re coming home in a box.” The story mode will feature a recon team that is very much out numbered but has access to the military’s most advance and top secret gear. The multiplayer will be just as robust the single player and aims to give players the chance to prepare for war even when they are away from their consoles, with the Ghost Recon Network.
Check out the details directly from Ubisoft.

Its seems nice that Ubisoft is making this Ghost Recon a experience with the GR Network allowing people to make their custom guns well ahead of time, so when the game drops they can go right in and start their missions. In addition to that every Ubisoft game comes on the UPlay system which in playing the game you’ll gain points to get in-game rewards as well as console rewards such as themes and avatar clothing. So one would wonder what will they offer on UPlay, with all the content in the main game and the Ghost Recon app, Ubisoft is really doing their all for this title and it aims to please.
