London, UK – 25 April, 2013 – Today, Ubisoft® announced the launch of the 0.11.0 patch for its free-to-play PC shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online®. Continuing to listen to community feedback, the Ubisoft Singapore development team has crafted a patch containing a host of new content, features and game service improvements that will further enhance the Ghost Recon Online experience.

Attica Heights – Ghost Recon Online goes to Singapore

Leading the charge is the brand-new map: Attica Heights – a high security building set against the iconic skyline of Singapore's business district. Attica Heights is the second map designed for the Holdout game mode and forces players to make quick tactical decisions in a unique split-level environment. The verticality of the map takes the fight on and directly above the vital capture point, splitting the teams’ focus between two floors and giving players alternate routes to the action.

Try Before You Buy - Firing Range and Field Testing

Players will be able to fully test any weapon in the Firing Range. Whether it be firing on the move or behind cover, assessing the weapon damage on virtual targets or getting a better feel of a weapon’s handling and recoil, the Firing Range will enable players to optimize the selection of weapons within their arsenal.

With new tiers of weapons unlocking as players level up within Ghost Recon Online, the Field Testing system will award temporary trial versions of the weapons as they become available. These trial versions can be taken into three standard matches and are a great way to test a weapon’s performance in real battlefield situations.

The OMEGA Pack – Armed to the teeth

Security for the mysterious Attica Heights facility is handled by the elite OMEGA Private Military – the poster boys for the OMEGA Pack. These urban-specialists use brand-new gear and weapon designs that are optimized for close quarters combat with short ready times and high rates of fire. And now players will be able to optimize their own equipment load-outs with new headgear and upgraded weapons sporting new camouflage, all from the OMEGA Pack.

Project TOPOS: Beta Map Testing

Project TOPOS: Beta Map Testing allows the community to play prototype maps with their clan mates and most importantly, help improve the design of the maps with their feedback on the forums. More feedback = Better maps.

Mystery Boxes and Bundles – New ways to gear up

0.11.0 also delivers more ways for players to get their hands on the right gear for the job. Four new bundles will ease the players' progression as they level up, giving them all the essential equipment they could need. Players looking for vintage, limited-edition weapons can now find them in the new Mystery Boxes. Each box has a possibility of dropping rare and valuable items, adding a hint of chance to a game where luck don't live.

UBISOFT ANNOUNCES THE PROJECT TOPOS: BETA MAP TESTING PROGRAM FOR TOM CLANCY’S GHOST RECON ONLINE®

Building Better Maps with the Community

London, UK – April 17, 2013 – Today, Ubisoft® announced the upcoming launch of the Project TOPOS: Beta Map Testing program for its free-to-play, PC Online shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online. Scheduled to start within the month of April, the Project TOPOS: Beta Map Testing program will allow the vibrant Ghost Recon Online community to play an integral role in shaping the design and development of new maps in the game.

The community’s engagement with the game and their feedback have always been an important central force in guiding the evolution of the Ghost Recon Online experience, and the Ubisoft Singapore development team is now taking it to the next level with the Project TOPOS program. The program will allow all Ghost Recon Online players to play on beta versions of maps that are still under development. More importantly, the community will be able to share their feedback of these maps through dedicated Ghost Recon Online Project TOPOS forum channels. This feedback will help guide the Ubisoft Singapore development team in further improving the design and quality of these beta maps.

To participate in the Project TOPOS program, Ghost Recon Online players will need to be a part of a clan. There will be 3 Project TOPOS beta maps at the start, and these will be available in the Clan Match section of Ghost Recon Online

According to Theo Sanders, the game’s Lead Producer: “Our community plays an important role in shaping how Ghost Recon Online will evolve. With Project TOPOS, we have another platform with which to closely involve our community in shaping not only the design of the maps that we have planned, but more importantly, what they want their Ghost Recon Online experience to be.”
