Ghost Recon's 'Alpha' short film released to the wilds

With Ghost Recon: Future Soldier due out next week, Ubisoft's hype train is at full speed. Rather than the usual spread of screens, trailers, and announcements of preorder goodies though, they've released a nearly 25 minute short film that sets the stage for the upcoming near-future shooter, and does so with a good deal of style. Ghost Recon Alpha features the production talent behind a bevy of blockbuster films and it shows. 

Follows the four soldiers of Team Ghost deep into enemy territory, Alpha sets the stage for Future Soldier and makes sure you're comfortable with your little quartet of murders. I wasn't all that excited about Future Soldier when it was announced and, to be honest, I'm still not. This movie, however, was pretty damn exciting. If the singleplayer aspect of Future Soldier ends up rivaling 'Alpha,' I might just give it a shot!
