Ghost Recon: Future Soldier – live-action trailer impressions

March 27, 2010 at 12:13 pm 3 comments

“In the near future, Moscow, Russia, ultranationalists have violently seized power…” Wait, haven’t we heard this before…?

Russian attack drones - now coming in fashionable red

For some odd reason, this reminds me of Red Alert

Unfortunately still no gameplay of Future Soldier depicted. I’d probably expect some at E3 in June. However, we did get a sweet-looking live action trailer that displayed a few of the nifty gadgets that are in store for Future Soldiers. And it looks like there’s gonna be quite a few, seeing that Future Soldier is coming to PC, XBox 360, PS3 AND Wii.

This guy needs to smile more.

It also looks like Moscow will play a role in the single player campaign too. This is hardly surprising, since the Russians played huge roles in a lot of fps’s such as Modern Warfare 2 and Bad Company 2.  Russia will also feature in Splinter Cell’s co-op prequel. It remains to be seen whether they’ll actually invade America like in the first 2 blockbuster titles. To be honest, I think the Commies have copped quite enough of a beating from Western game producers. For some reason they fit the ‘perfect enemy’ profile.

The only phantom ops member who doesn't cloak is the sniper.... FAIL

This trailer clearly was aimed to flaunt a few of the nifty gizmoes to be accessed at our fingertips. We once again got to see the sexay cloaking action at work. We also got a glimpse of some pretty awesome shoulder-mounted rockets, no matter how impossible they be in real life, and we observed some drone-vs-drone action.

Not quite the headshot I was expecting....

What’s also good to note is that it seems that there’ll be quite a high chance that there’ll be co-op multiplayer. This isn’t too much of a surprise, seeing that previous installments did feature splitscreen 4-player co-op.

That's right. When you shoulder-mount something, that makes it over 9000 times cooler.

Production of Future Soldier looks like it’s steaming ahead. There definitely have the budget to cast a very Michael Bay-esque live-action trailer, and the result looks spectacular. However, I’m currently more interested in gameplay and multiplayer/co-op, and I’m sure there will be much more to see once Spinter Cell comes out and players receive their free entry to the Future Soldier online multiplayer beta. Stay tuned~

Now you see me...

Now you don't.

    I really liked this trailer. Got me hyped about the game. Hopefully it lives up to its hype!
