Ubisoft Annouces New Ghost Recon: Future Soldier DLC

The Ghost Recon team is launching a Khyber Strike in what may or may not be Afghanistan.

Get ready for a heavily-armed vacation to one of the less-pleasant parts of the world in Khyber Strike, the upcoming third DLC release for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The DLC pack will include three new multiplayer maps, a new multiplayer game mode, a new Guerrilla mode map, new Achievements and a +10 level cap increase.

The first multiplayer map, "Switchback," drops players into the "close-quarters deathtrap" of the city's ancient, claustrophobic alleys and buildings, while "Palace" is a straight-up fight over the ruins of a once-glorious museum. "Transit," the third and final map, takes place in a Moscow Metro station, where the up-close combat is made even more intense by the trains that continue to operate even as the battle rages. The new "Takeover" game mode is similar to Team Deathmatch but with some elements of Attack and Defend thrown into the mix, and the Guerrilla mode gets a boost with the addition of the new "Village" map.

I don't know much about the Ghost Recon franchise but it seems a bit odd to me that the only location given a name in the Khyber Strike DLC pack is Moscow. I am of course working on the assumption that Khyber Strike is named after the Khyber Pass that links Afghanistan and Pakistan and not the Underdark of Eberron, and maybe that's off-base, but if Ubisoft is going to set a DLC pack in a real-life war zone, why beat around the bush about it?

Anyway, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier: Khyber Strike will cost 800 Microsoft points on Xbox Live or $9.99 on the PlayStation Network, and launches on October 9. The PC version will be released at "a later date."

If you know geography you know this is Afghanistan.

Or they could add Split-Screen online play.

Problem is....no one is playing the game anymore.

The Arctic Strike DLC was DoA, you can't find anyone to play Raven Strike with......and the only gametype still running is Conflict.

Really? I bought the DLC (360) for Arctic Strike just after Raven Strike came out and was finding games on the map. I can't find anyone playing the awesome new mode anymore sadly but I get to play the maps in the DLC on conflict pretty often.

Well, it doesn't help that the Arctic Strike DLC is a bad mix of maps.

You have Skyline that is pretty good....but then Riot sucks absolute balls, and the Apartment level is pretty decent, but the way the Conflict objectives are set up is painfully bad.

Well anyway, it's not exactly DOA. Although I do wish they would add matchmaking to Guerilla... Kind of sucks that there is none.

I liked the extra campaigns in Raven Strike, disappointed the new DLC doesn't have any
