Ubisoft’s free to play take on the Ghost Recon universe, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Phantoms, has apparently seen a hugely successful launch, with it currently being the third most played free to play title on Steam right now (presumably behind perennial behemoths Dota 2 and Team Fortress 2), and seeing more than 200,000 active players across all platforms daily.
“We are thrilled with the number of active players which just passed the one million mark. We are seeing a lot of new players from countries where the game was already available during open beta, like the UK and Germany, as well as from newly opened territories including Brazil and Australia. There has also been a rise in popularity of the game in Asia, in particular South Korea and Singapore, which is especially important to our team as Singapore is where the game was created,” said Corey Facteau, producer on Ghost Recon Phantoms. “We are going to continue improving Ghost Recon Phantoms by releasing regular new content in game, and we are looking forward to seeing what suggestions these new territories have and how it will help us shape the future of the game.”
To celebrate, Ubisoft is releasing a new re-designed map for the game, the second since its launch. It’s called The Subpen, and the video above will explain exactly how it is different from how it used to be so far.
