Ubisoft is working on a mobile Ghost Recon game called Ghost Recon: Commander which will not only be a game in itself but also connect to other Ghost Recon games that you play on the PC. So how will this all work? Ubisoft explained the idea behind it to PocketGamer recently and this is how things will go down.
Ghost Recon: Commander will be a companion game, similar to what a companion app is but instead of an app it will be an actual game you play. As you play Ghost Recon: Commander, you will unlock other content and items in the PC Ghost Recon titles.
“What’s … important, I think, from a gamer’s perspective is you’ll have advantages in one game that you’ll unlock by playing the other game”. – VP of digital at Ubisoft, Chris Early
Chris goes on to explain the unlocking in more detail:
“It’s not just a one-time item unlock. The more you play each of those games, the more benefit you create in terms of the other gameplay experience. So, by playing Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, you’ll be able to unlock characters you can use in the Facebook and mobile game, plus currency, experience points, items etc that you can use in the social and mobile game.
And – conversely – by playing the social and mobile game, if you’re playing at work at lunch, or in a break, you’re continuing the character progression. You’ll unlock items and experience points bonus and currency in Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.”
This doesn’t just go for the single-player Ghost Recon games either. You will gain benefits in the free-to-play Ghost Recon Online game as well. As for the actual Ghost Recon: Commander game itself, you will be able to connect to friend asynchronously and it will be designed so that gamers can enjoy both long and short playing sessions should they have an hour or only 15 minutes to play.
As for when the game actually launches, there is now exact release date as of yet but we do know that it will arrive on Facebook first, then iOS before heading off onto other platforms which most likely will include Android.
