"Only the dead fight fair."
It's the provocative tagline to Ubisoft's long-delayed Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The next Tom Clancy game is set to arrive on Xbox 360 and PS3 on May 22nd, and it will have you utilizing a number of futuristic gadgets--from cloaking to sensors that see through walls--to take down hostiles and save civilians.
"Fans of the series might be perturbed by the heavy action focus," Xav's E3 preview noted. That vibe continues with the game's gameplay debut trailer. While the action-packed montage evokes the Modern Warfare 3 trailer, it does show off some of the game's more tactical offerings. Hopefully, Xav's fears will be assuaged in the final game. "There wasn't a single moment where I felt like I had discovered a tactical way to dispatch enemies," he wrote at E3. "They were just the next few that the linear level put in my way."
A beta will be available in April for both PS3 and Xbox 360. Future Soldier will also be on PC, after the console launch.
