When you hear “creepy” and “Ghost Recon” in the same sentence, it might make you think of how easily a special forces unit could infiltrate your home and slit your throat while you sleep. But this trailer is a different sort of creepy, as it mirrors one young man’s obsession with in-game gun customization to a masturbatory addiction.
The trailer itself is basically a rehash of all the features we saw during Microsoft’s 2011 E3 conference, mishmashed with a “support group” setting. Your entertainment mileage may vary on this video — I didn’t get out of my figurative driveway. Skip to about 2:10 in if all you want is gameplay, and skip to 2:20 if smarmy bro-fist action is your thing.
Future Solider is set to drop in a little less than a month, on May 22nd. In typical “PC gamers are scum” Ubisoft fashion, the PC game will be arriving late, on June 12th. The Ghost Recon series has been hit or miss for me over the years; hopefully this iteration will be good.
