There’s a new Ghost Recon game in stores, and there’s a new Ghost Recon trailer available online — but where’s the news of a new Ghost Recon game and associated video for the Xbox 360 or PS3? Not here, unfortunately, but maybe that’ll change at E3 next month.
Not to take anything away from Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, of course, which is now available for the Nintendo DS. As the commander of the Ghosts, the most elite special operations fighting force in the world, the mission in Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars is to stop the Russian ultranationalist Yuri Treskayev from coming to power. From the hot deserts of Kazakhstan to the towns and villages of Ukraine and the frozen lands of Siberia, the player must discover and disable the secret Soviet-era “Dead Hand” bases which Treskayev is using to build an army of drones to seize power. The player has access to full resources to build, train and equip its team using increasingly high-tech weapons and armor.
In other words, Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars may be on a handheld, but it’ll still scratch your itch for some GRAW-like action. To prove it, Ubisoft has sent along the following new Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars trailer for your viewing pleasure. You can check it out below.
