In Ghost Recon Frontline, players

Expedition, the game’s flagship mode, offers a new take on the battle royale

to work together to complete dynamic objectives across the massive open map with
no converging circle. Once players are done collecting intel, they will have to
head to a drop zone and call for an extraction. When initiated, all teams will
know the position of the extraction and will try to intervene, players will have
to play tactically to successfully escape and win the match. Additional modes
will also be available at launch.
Ghost Recon Frontline offers a unique and advanced class system, allowing
players to upgrade and customize each contractor to fit their strategy. Three
classes of contractors will be available during the first closed test, with more
available at launch:
- Assault Class provides great sustainability in close range fights
and overall proficiency maneuvers.
- Support Class offers superior protection with fortification
- Scout Class can easily recon the area for the squad, revealing
and pestering enemies from a distance without fear of retaliation.
Players can even switch between different contractors even in the heart of
battle, making each game unique and highly tactical.
