Ubisoft has confirmed that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier multiplayer beta will run from April 19th until May 2nd for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
In the multiplayer beta, up to twelve simultaneous players will have the opportunity to choose from three classes (Rifleman, Engineer and Scout) and experience the online action in two different modes. In Conflict, players battle to complete objectives located throughout the map, the team with the most points at the end of the round wins. With Saboteur (available starting April 26th), a bomb spawns in a central location, both teams compete to retrieve the bomb and be the first to detonate it at the opposing team’s base. Both modes will be playable on two different maps (Pipeline and Mill).
The beta isn't open to everyone, and can only be accessed by Splinter Cell Conviction owners; those who pre-order Future Soldier through GameStop; and PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Additionally, Ubisoft announced Ghost Recon Network, a free companion service for your mobile device that will support all Ghost Recon titles moving forward. The Ghost Recon Network site and v1.0 iOS & Android apps will launch alongside the game in May. Players in the multiplayer beta will have the opportunity to try specific features of the Ghost Recon Network website and get their hands on the Android mobile app – both of which are in beta stage.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is scheduled to release for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 on May 22, 2012 and on PC on June 12, 2012.
