With the first DLC for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier due to be released on the Xbox 360 Marketplace tomorrow, Ubisoft have released a list of achievements and details that will be coming with the ‘Arctic Strike’ DLC.
This information has been taken straight from the Official Ubisoft ‘Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’ Webpage and the ‘Arctic Strike’ details are as followed:
Arctic Strike DLC
It includes additional adversarial maps, a new adversarial game type, a new Guerrilla co-op map, six additional weapons and more. Last week, we introduced the mechanics of the new Stockade game type; today we’ll tell you more about the achievements, the new adversarial maps and the new weapons. Check out our Facebook page tomorrow to see Arctic Strike in action!
- Tour of Duty Moscow – Win 3 MP matches of any game type on each: Skyline, Riot, and Evicted maps. (25 points)
- Stockade Domination – Be part of a squad match where your team eliminates the enemy in less than 2 minutes. (10 points)
New adversarial maps
The community asked for larger maps so we designed spaces that were bigger and had more navigational options than the maps that shipped with GRFS. Visually, the Moscow campaign maps were very exciting to us but we didn’t focus on this theme for the original ten adversarial maps. We decided that our first pack would expand on the story of the final missions of the campaign and take the fight into the heart of Russia. The wide open spaces of the Moscow theme matched our desire to construct larger spaces that slow the pace of the experience and provide additional options for a well coordinated team.
· Rifleman: F2000
(Ghost) F2000: 5.56x45mm Assault Rifle. Unlike many bullpup rifles, the F2000 features ambidextrous controls and a unique casing ejection system. Its compact design makes it highly manoeuvrable. It also features a high rate of fire, but recoil is easily controllable.
· Rifleman: CZS805
(Bodark) S805: 5.56x45mm Assault Rifle. The S805 is a highly customizable gas operated modular rifle. Since the rifle is chambered in 5.56x45mm, recoil is very manageable when compared to other Bodark weapons.
· Scout: JSG Type 05
(Bodark) Type 05: 9x19mm Submachine Gun. The Type 05 is a unique bullpup SMG with an integrated foregrip, which improves the weapon’s stability while on the move. The threaded barrel allows for the easy addition of a suppressor.
· Scout: MP9
(Ghost) MP9: 9x19mm Submachine Gun. The MP9 is an extremely lightweight SMG. It features an integrated foregrip which helps improve the weapon’s stability while on the move. The unique appearance of the muzzle allows for the easy addition of a suppressor.
· Engineer: OCP-11
(Bodark) OCP-11: 5.45x39mm Personal Defence Rifle. The OCP-11 or ‘Popov’ combines the durability and simplicity of Russian firearms design with the modularity of Western weapons. The small round and large ammunition capacity allows for a high volume of controlled fire with relatively light recoil.
· Engineer: Mk17
(Ghost) Mk17 PDW: 7.62x51mm Personal Defence Rifle. The Mk17 PDW is a highly customizable, short-barrelled version of the SCAR-H. The more powerful 7.62x51mm ammunition hits targets harder, but increases felt recoil and results in a smaller magazine size.
‘Arctic Strike’ will be available via the Xbox 360 Marketplace tomorrow (17/07/12) at 800MSP.
