The “Ghosts” are sent to North Africa
San Francisco - December 20, 2001 -- Following the release of the critically acclaimed Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon™, Ubi Soft Entertainment is pleased to announce the March 2002 release of the first mission pack for the benchmark tactical first person shooter.
The mission pack will see the elite members of the Ghost Recon outfit undertaking military operations in the war-torn lands of North Africa, where overt conflict has broken out between Ethiopia and Eritrea. With UN support under constant threat and attack, and key aid and supply ports closed, restoring order to the region rests in the hands of the ‘Ghosts’.
The Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon™ Mission Pack will see the introduction of new weapons, vehicles and enemies, while enhanced sound and visual effects will ensure that the trademark realism and tension of the original game is maintained in the arid and unforgiving environments of North Africa.
In addition to the 8 new single-player missions, the mission pack also includes Multiplayer maps for LAN and online play via ubi.com.
