London, UK – July 10, 2013 – Today, Ubisoft® announced the launch of the 0.12.0 update for its free-to-play PC shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online®. This update delivers impressive new content such as a massive new map, gameplay and cosmetic improvements, as well as a new pack of weapons, armour and avatars in a new Phantom theme.
Enter the Phantoms
A faceless terror and new nemesis for the Ghosts of Ghost Recon Online, the Phantoms are mysterious and deadly. Witness the murderous rise of the Phantoms in the 0.12.0 Trailer – Enter the Phantoms. The Phantom Pack comes with sinister new armour, avatars and never-before-seen weapon variants in Phantom camouflage.
Biggest Map to Date
The latest and largest map in the GRO world: Xinyi District is set in Taiwan and is inspired by the famous tech corridor of the same name. The fans have spoken and the developers are listening. The new map incorporates a five-point capture system, where teams will need to capture and hold a linear series of five capture zones to dominate the match.
Xinyi District is the first of a new generation of maps to use the new “Monster” lighting system. Now GRO can offer improved graphic quality, more realistic lighting for all resolutions, more balanced gameplay and high-res shadow effects without the high computing cost. Additional lighting improvements for all maps are in the works and on the way.
Improvements, Improvements Everywhere
Fine tuning, device enhancements and tactical movement changes are just a few of the latest gameplay improvements coming in 0.12.0. Players can also enjoy an array of cosmetic changes, from realistic shell ejection to the signature singe-eye AR displays.
