After months of waiting, Ubisoft has finally put PC gamers out of their misery and revealed exactly when Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will see the light of day. It’ll arrive just one month after it does on consoles, with the PC launch date currently penciled in for June 15th.
Because Ubisoft love PC gamers so much, they’ve even added a few bells and whistles to optimise the game for perfect performance too. I can’t say the first two points make even vague sense to me, but I’m going to hazard a guess that they’re good. Here’s what’s new:
- PC high standard visuals (DX11 renderer, new Hi-Quality Assets, new Post Process Effects, multi-monitor solutions support, TriDef stereoscopic support).
- DirectX11 enhanced: Tessellation (for soft 3D models), Compute Shaders-based realistic lighting (for Global Illumination), Volumetric Fog.
- Online Widget: Party, Friends and Ghost Feed functionality can be accessed at any moment from any screen.
- Extended party functionality: simplified and more flexible invitation system.
- Party text Chat.
- Uplay Friends system.
- Fully customizable controls for the localized keyboards.
To start the game you’ll need to be online to register your product key, or face being locked out for all eternity. Well, until you actually do get online at least. With just over 2 months to wait now, there’s still a little time to brush up on your guerrilla skills before you head onto the battlefield.
