Demo Next Week?
Posted by Rocky on Saturday, April 22 2006

GR:AW PC could be on your PC sometime next week according to this post by a moderator in the French Ubisoft forums. The best translation I can come up with at this time is...

"Well, the demo is out next week!  One of the folks that were at the fan's day yesterday asked the question and one said for them that the demo is due out next week but no exact date was specified." 

Keep your eyes peeled on the official sites for the exact date and content of the demo. Forum discussion here.

Ubisoft Abandon Starforce?
Posted by Rocky on Thursday, April 13 2006

DailyTech are reporting that Ubisoft have announced they will no longer be using Starforce on their games. This will come as a huge relief to Ghost Recon fans, some of whom had already stated they would not be purchasing Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter if Starforce was present. The wider gaming community has also been up in arms over Starforce, to the point of organising game boycotts, and even a class action lawsuit against Ubisoft for distributing Starforce in their games.

The Starforce discussion in our forums reached 8 pages long, and the debate will probably continue now in light of this new information. Whatever copy protection Ubisoft uses with Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (if any), let's hope it is not intrusive, and that it doesn't inconvienience the paying customer - wouldn't that be a nice turn up for the books.


GRIN GRAW Video - UPDATED
Posted by Rocky on Tuesday, April 11 2006

GRIN_desmond22 has very kindly added an English Translation of the interview, you can jump straight to that post here.

GB Crush over at GR-Retreat has produced a special subtitled version of this movie, download it here. I've called it special because, well, watch it yourself and have a laugh, it's the funniest thing I've seen all week, easily. Post your feedback on this classic movie here.


Multiplayer Details Revealed!
Posted by Rocky on Saturday, April 8 2006

Jorrit has posted an English translation of a report from GRIN's visit to the Netherlands. This report has some very interesting information not previously released such as anti-cheat, replays, and a lot of very interesting details on multiplayer games - such as joining in-progress games and dedi server requirements.


GR:AW PC Preview
Posted by Rocky on Friday, April 7 2006

We Want A Date Viral Campaign
Posted by Rocky on Sunday, April 2 2006

Anyone who has been around the Ghost Recon community of late can't have helped but notice the sometimes conspiracy laced opinions that cropped up all too regularly from fans regarding delays in the release of GR:AW on the 360, and doubting that Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter would ever reach the PC.

It would seem these, at times almost hysterical, opinions did not go un-noticed by the powers that be at Ubisoft, as a previously unreleased viral campaign that would seem to play on these fears has now come to light! The We Want A Date Ghost Recon viral marketing campaign surfaced in our forums here, and you really do not want to miss this! 

There are 14 hilarious short movies to download, collect them all!
