Following the trend of launching hundreds of tie-ins in conjunction with the lead-game, Ubisoft have today released Ghost Recon Commander into the hostile territory of Facebook.
Developed by Loot Drop, a company founded by industry icons John Romero and Brenda Braithwaite, Ghost Recon Commander has been dubbed “strategic combat experience that challenges everything you know about Facebook games”.
Combined with Braithwaite’s “I don’t want to visit my friends. I want to kill them” approach to social networking, it looks like Ghost Recon Commander could be a welcome breath of fresh air from the veritable avalanche of game invites that plague almost every Facebook title.
Ghost Recon Commander is currently still in beta, but available for anybody with a twitchy trigger finger and a desire to procrastinate here.
Ghost Recon: Future Solider tactically inserts its way onto consoles on 22 May in North America, 24 May in PAL territories, 25 May in the UK and 5 July in Japan. It also sees a release on PC on 12 June in North America, 14 June in PAL territories and 15 June in the UK.
