Description: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online is a Free-to-play third person (1st person shooting) tactical shooter set in the near future. It has almost nothing in common with the tactical shooter series it spawned from outside of futuristic gadgets. As a member of a special forces squad you have to capture control points in urban warzones. Doing so will net you experience which can be used to level up your soldier and unlock new gun attachments, armor pieces and grenades. Using tactical strategy and all available cover are key to survival as this game can be extremely tough to play.

Whether leading the attack, going stealthy or providing fire support to the squad, the choice is in your hands – pick from 3 different Classes of Ghosts to meet the tactical challenges of each battle. Develop, evolve and customize your persistent Ghost character as you advance through Ghost Recon Online.

With the most advanced technology at their fingertips, each Ghost is able to deploy hi-tech abilities to enhance not only their own fighting capabilities, but more importantly, to complement and boost the battlefield effectiveness of their squad.

As a Free-to-Play game, you will be able to download and experience Ghost Recon Online’s core content without paying a single cent. Players can enhance their game experience by using either in-game points or real currency to purchase and equip their Ghosts with weapons, gear and other boosts.
