Ubisoft have announced Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Commander, a new Facebook game that's targeted primarily at socially connected gamers - rather than just the more typical casual audiences Facebook is renowned for attracting.
Described as a fast-paced tactical combat game, the title - scheduled to be available soon - is in development at Loot Drop, a studio formed by infamous game designer and developer John Romero (of id Software fame). It will purportedly contain deep gameplay and high production values, appealing to both hardcore and "social" gamers.
Features listed in the announcement include:
In Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Commander, players will be able to develop their own "Ghost," an elite Special Forces operator utilizing stealth, firepower and exciting near-future technology to take command of the battlefield against impossible odds. Following Ubisoft's companion gaming strategy, players are encouraged to play the game before jumping into Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which will be available on consoles May 25th and Ghost Recon Online, available later this year on PC. By playing Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Commander, players will be able to unlock exclusive items and bonuses giving them a head start when playing Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Ghost Recon Online.
