Updated info – Future Soldier

I know most of you must have already seen this movie clip, I just thought I would place it hear where they go into details about the demo.

The game is set 10-15 years later than today. The Optical camouflage is only in full affect, when you are completely still, but still even then lights from explosives, or touch to the skin and the invisibility fails. The four man cell are up against the Russians. As the leader of the game you have to come with strategies that should be done.

Ghost Recon Future Soldier

Iron Sight View, Future Soldier, Ghost Recon,The Ghost Recon game is a military tactical video game, that is based on a novel written by Tom Clancy. “The novel by David Michaels follows Captain Scott Mitchell and Ghost team on a mission in China. Their task is to search for the Spring Tiger Group – a band of rogue Chinese military officers – and put an end to its attempt at seizing control of Taiwan and sparking a massive armed conflict in the Pacific Ocean.” – Wikipedia. The first video game series was created by Red Storm Entertainment (RSE), and later was bought by Ubisoft but (RSE) still take part in developing Future Soldier game.

The Future Soldier will be the newest part/installment added to the Ghost Recon, which according to Ubisoft will come out in March, 2011. “The story will take place in Norway, the Middle East, and Asia. The Ghosts will be fighting an ultra-nationalist force that took control of Russia and are invading neighboring countries. The player will take control of a 4-man Ghost squad consisting of a commando (Kozak), a sniper (Pepper), a reconnaissance expert (30k), and an engineer (Bones).” – Wikipedia.

The Ghost Recon Future Soldier game can is played in third person, and sometimes first person depending on the situation. In the Future Soldier one of the new features added is becoming invisible instantly (Optical camouflage), but according to some people like Rafeal Morado this feature has as many disadvantages as their are advantages to it. According to the game developers, running to fast, explosions will effect Optical camouflage stability, and their just may be a counter device that the enemy can use. According to Aziz Khater, Ubisofts International Product Manager for Future Soldier, the game will become much more battlefield-oriented then the previous Ghost Recons games. It also appears that the locations change a few times, so it won’t only take place in South America.

In the game the Future soldiers will receive the best high-tech military equipment known to us today, and some Recognition Device, Future Soldier, Abilities,weapons that are expected to arrive in the future. The weapons used in modern warfare will also be present like the machine guns, snipers rifles, grenades and explosives. But their are some new weapons that are are ‘taken’ from the future, that will probably appear in the next 10-15 years. Some of the future weapons are already being developed to use in modern warfare in the world today. The weapons that appear in the game, where discussed by the game developers with military consultants, to give the most realistic image to the players. One of the most interesting weapons that I saw in the demo is the one that he shot down the helicopter pilot with, it’s called the ‘Iron Sight View’ for long distances attacks. (Cool, eh?)

Some of the new features added co-op where the whole campaign is done by four people who have to come up with strategies, and work together as we can see in the demo clips, it’s to let the players “live through the experience like real spec ops”. Also for the future game players it can be adaptable for 3D devices. Some of the features present in the previous games will be seen here also for example the Move and Kinect but some things with this aspect of the game will change. Virgin Gaming will also host online tournaments for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.

The game developers work hard to satisfy the players, so they will tend to listen to the players more than with previous games. So if you have anything to say so they can change the game to satisfy the players.

Assassin’s Creed II

For Assassin’s Creed II. according to Connected Consoles their will be no pre-launch playable preview! The game that is supposed to come out on Release Date: November 17, 2009 keeps many people excited. I bet everyone wishes for the game to come out faster. Seeing the clips, and game previews many people including me wish to get our hands on it as soon as possible.

But their is some good news the sound track will be released on the 16th. The sound track was composed by Jesper Kyd, who also composed the music for Assassin’s Creed I. But did you know that Assassin’s Creed I. sold 8 million of copies? That should be a good sign that this game will also be entertaining.

Assassin’s Creed II

You will soon find out that being an assassin is not all that easy. The seen is set in Europe in Venice, in the Italian Renaissance, 15th century. While you have the opportunity to use weapons that up until now where only imagined by Leonardo da Vinci (sweet). Not only that but other Leonardo inventions will be at the players disposal for example: the flying machine. The main character is Ezio Auditore da Firenze a deadly assassin.

Enzio the main character in the game has a new cloak, that he has only access to in the in the advanced stages of the game. Some of the other changes in the game is that now their are some collectables like flags, that have a reward if you collect them. But then again their are some items that are just their to ‘collect’. Another feature that may have changed a little “Why is a game character controlled by a controller?”. But the reason that the character couldn’t be controlled by one person is because he is a remembered ancestor of someone else and controlled by: Animus. (I know this is a unusual, but hey it is also something unique.) But Assassin’s Creed II will have more ‘video game elements. Another expected change is that now Ezio can purchase goods, but also hire people. Also a day and night cycle has been added to the game, where some missions can only be achieved at a certain time.One of the amazing feature is to access legendary catacombs, temples, etc. An amazing fact is that Leonardo da Vinci, isn’t just at the side but he is also friends with Ezio.

This story takes about 295 years later than the firs with a new a character mentioned above Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Ezio is full noble who seeks vengeance after his family was betrayed. The character has the freedom to achieve the missions when they desire to, while they roam one of the most spectacular city, Venice.

Sometimes to me playing Assassin’s Creed is not playing a video game. I don’t want it to be. You’re playing an experience.” ~ Patrice Desilets
