Might be time for the PW Ghost Team to suit up.

Well, I'll be. Open world military action? So, ARMA that's not completely cack handed?

This is exactly the sort of game I love. You better believe that I'm so up for some of this.

It looks like it's using the same engine as The Division? I'm very interested in how it turns out. I'm hoping for a modern take on the first Mercenaries game ¬_¬

Please please please be worth the name.

Please allay my fucking colossal fear that this is just a bullshit run & gun re-skinned Far Cry.

3rd person I can forgive. Hell turds in baseball caps as the main protagonists I can forgive. As long as it is a true tactical shooter.

Anything else, I will hate them forever.

I'm still not sure why they put the Ghost Recon name on it; it doesn't look like a tactical shooter, but it does look fun. I've been waiting for a squad-based Mercenaries for years.

I reckon it could get pretty tactical, it depends how resilient you are as the protagonist. Setting up things like ambushes and what not would seem fairly achievable and as an open world game it would require a lot more off the cuff reaction type stuff than immaculately planned missions (deciding on fall back points and things like that), especially when enemies can come at you from any direction. I already have lots of different tactical scenarios in my head just from that demo piece and no doubt that is just one of many possible set ups. I think it'll play more like splinter cell co-op than Farcry's slightly more "action" affair, especially with the stealth opportunities.

The kicker for me will be whether the opponents in a given area are pre-populated or spawn in as happened in some previous R6 titles - if the latter then open world tactics become nigh on impossible.

Such a mixed bag of emotions - on the one hand a new R6 game aimed purely at co-op fun and games, set in an open world - holy crap that is Snowy-nirvana. On the flipside - Ubisoft. Unparalleled masters of taking the wonderful and turning it into buggy formulaic shite, or just fucking it up.

Seeing as we're talking about this again in the thread for The Division, I went and had a look to see if there had been any more details. Turns out they put out a short Q&A video a month ago:



Looking around to see if there's a release date. Got to be this year, right?

Edit: Here's the old Red Storm boys rambling about the series history, and how much they love the new game.

Yup. The E3 demo with the guns-blazing approach reminded me of Mercenaries. The stealth approach reminds me of a co-op MGS5 (without the Kojima craziness anyway). Both of these are very good things.
