What game(s) are you gonna play this month?
Following in the footsteps of “Halo: ODST“, the recently unveiled trailer for “Ghost Recon: Future Soldier” trades the chance to entice players with gameplay footage in exchange for a more cinematic, live-action trailer. As cool as this trailer is though, does it really make you want to buy the game, especially once you consider that it tells you nothing about it? Like Halo, Ghost Recon is an established franchise, so fans can trust that this game will live up to their standards, despite not knowing what the series has in store.
Bottom Line: It’s pretty damn cool.
In case you notice (or watch til the end), while there’s no talk of a release date for the game as of yet, the trailer announced that a multiplayer beta will begin over the summer. Beta invitations are a bonus for anyone who picks up a copy of Splinter Cell; Conviction, which hits stores April 13’th.
