Ubisoft has just announced Ghost Recon Frontline — but if you're after another open world co-op adventure, this ain't it. Frontline is a "massive" player-versus-player shooter, and it'll be free-to-play on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. It'll also feature cross-play at launch between all platforms, which includes Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, Luna, and Stadia.
And yes, it is being touted as a Battle Royale title. The press release reads: "Expedition, the game’s flagship mode, offers a new take on the Battle Royale genre. Featuring more than 100 players in teams of three, these squads will have to work together to complete dynamic objectives across the massive open map with no converging circle. Once players are done collecting intel, they will have to head to a drop zone and call for an extraction. When initiated, all teams will know the position of the extraction and will try to intervene, players will have to play tactically to successfully escape and win the match. Additional modes will also be available at launch."
Needless to say, the initial reaction to this reveal hasn't been particularly positive. The trailer's already swamped with dislikes on YouTube, and the main criticism seems to be that... Well, this isn't really what people want from Ghost Recon. But who knows, maybe it'll be fun.
There's no release date for Frontline yet, but it sounds like there are going to be plenty of early gameplay tests that you can sign up for. You can register for these tests on the official website right now.
