Ubisoft's getting into the free-to-play shooter space with Ghost Recon Online for PC, the publisher has announced today.
It's exactly what you'd expect: a full-featured, online multiplayer, third-person, cover-based tactical shooter. Oh, and did you catch the part where it's free-to-play? Ubisoft will offer optional "premium items" to "personalize" the game experience, however.
I had a chance to get an early hands-on with the game at Ubisoft's pre-E3 event, and came away impressed by what Ubisoft's Singapore studio is building. We were able to choose from one of three classes -- Assault, Recon, Specialist -- before fiddling around with the game's weapon customization and load outs. For a free-to-play title, the game looked surprisingly sharp. Ubisoft tells us its aiming for Ghost Recon Online's minimum specs to hit the bar for most mid-range PCs.
Applications to get in on this summer's beta are open now on the game's official website; the title is slated to be fully launched by year's end.

Killing Floor has done amazingly well on the PC, and the sequel is now coming to the PlayStation 4. This will be the console debut for the series.
