PS Plus Grants First Access to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Beta 4/19

Morgan Haro's Avatar + Posted by Morgan Haro on Apr 06, 2012 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

Releasing in May, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier not only promises an engaging single-player campaign, but bone-rattling battlefields to storm in multiplayer. And now, PlayStation Plus subscribers will have first access to the multiplayer beta come April 17th.

The beta will be published on April 17th in the PlayStation Plus section of the Store. If you’ve elected for Automatic Downloads as a subscriber, the beta will also be automatically pushed to your PS3 when it’s released! Otherwise, you can download it when you’re ready and hop in the multiplayer action.

It’s important to note that the beta itself starts on the 19th of April. So while you’ll be able to download it on 4/17, the action can’t be accessed until Thursday, 4/19.

If you’re not in on the PlayStation Plus action, click here to snag your subscription, or head to the PlayStation Store to unlock immediate access.

Awesome. I have been waiting on this game for ages. When I got Splinter Cell: Conviction, I was hoping the beta promised with that would come through. Unfortunately, we know what happened.

Glad I have PS + though! :)

Will PSN users who aren’t PlayStation Plus subscribers get a chance to participate in the beta or is the beta PS+ exclusive?

Will definately be checking this out; however, since the Tom Clancey series checked out a long, long, time ago I’m not going to get my hopes up.

    We’re looking at ways to get more utility out of the automatic downloads service; thanks for the feedback!

Hoorah! A lot of hiatus had come about in UbiForums over the whole false report on GRFS beta access, however now this report resolves the announcement from the start of the month as true. I hope PS+ and this announcement follows as true as the days pass to its deadline.

I want this Ghost Recon, Max Payne 3, and StarHawk so bad but only have money for one.-_-
guess ill go with StarHawk,ill try to save up for another game but who knows.

+ JH-FallenReaper on April 6th, 2012 at 2:57 pm said:

Oh and this beta better come to non PS plus subscribers because its not our fault we cant afford 50 buck a year, i know its cheap but theres alot to do in life. I also want to try it out and see if the game is worth buying.

+ distortedhalo on April 6th, 2012 at 2:59 pm said:

By the way, any questions in regards to Gunsmith and any other subtopics on the closed MP beta, go to UbiForums, for your answer is found there.

Conflict and Saboteur will be two of the 7 or 10 multiplayer modes accesible in the MP beta. Conflict will be available for play immediately, while Saboteur makes its way to access on April 26th, I believe. Pipeline and Mill will be the playable maps on the beta. More info is available on the Ubisoft/Ghost Recon official website.

Finally Sony is looking at how Steam is so succesful with it’s digital download market. I posted a forum about a month ago for Sony to allow for games to be downloaded and ready to play when the game goes live. It would of worked perfect for your big ME3 digital download. Sony advertised get ME3 at midnight and no waiting in line at a store except the problem was at midnight you could start DLing the 13GB game. I cant see how that would help ppl to go to the digital game for the same price and you will play it later then hard copy purchasers . I hope this is a new business model for Sony and all future AAA titles have a pre download plan. Eventually working it’s way down to weekly PSN titles that are being released and evn DLC’s not patches though that’s just malarky

@ La_maravich_22

So many of your requests dont make any sense. And though it’s completely off topic, I’ll attack a few of them. Mods feel free to delete our posts i dont care haha.

° Youtube Instagram and Skype app for the ps vita.
-Those are third party apps. Not Sony apps. The third parties need to make apps.

° Google Chrome web browser to the ps vita.
-Same as above

° Improve the Facebook app of the ps vita.
-Ask Facebook.

° Release an avatar pack when the game comes out not 3 weeks laters.
-The developers make avatar packs. Not Sony. Talk to the developers


34

+ Axecution on April 7th, 2012 at 9:55 am said:

° More PSN games to the vita and ports of great titles like journey flower nba jam castle crasher magic orbz pacman closure tetris modern combat ect ect.
-Those are a bunch of third party games. Yet again, talk to the developers. Sony has nothing to do with that.

° Buy Quantic Dream and ThatGameCompany.
-LOL

° Guerrilla Games with the new ip and the vita version of killzone , Naughty Dog with Last of Us, Santa Monica Studio with the secret project,Respawn Entretaiment, The last Guardian
-Uh sir. Those too, are third party games.

° Sony needs to show Bioshock, Assassins Creeds and Call of Duty for vita.
-And so are those. Talk to their developers.

Other than God of War, those are also ThIrD pArTy GaMeS!

° Drop Price of PS3 and Ps Vita
-And once they drop it, you’ll just keep asking them to drop it more. Everyone always wants a price drop on everything.

° A MMO for the ps vita.
– …..

° The next console needs a universal party system for all the games.
– No next console has been announced.

+ Axecution on April 7th, 2012 at 9:56 am said:

° Buy at least 2 studio for eclusive development of psn games.
-KAAAAY JUST TELL THEM TO BUY A BUNCH OF STUDIOS SOMEHOW KAAAAY

° New PSN Interface for the next console.
-If there’s a next console, it will obviously have a new interface.

° A lot of features for the PSN like Steam.
-Like what? Steam has sales and It’s infinitely more organized than PSN. But feature wise, there’s not much. At least, not much that is console port-able.

° Digital Games not at the same price of the disc games.
-They arent. Vita games are 10% cheaper than their retail counterparts, for example.

° Take ideas for the new console onlive services from steam and make a subscription payment program like xbox live but no to expensive.
-Why would they want to copy online? The point of onlive is to stream games on a computer that cant run those games. The PS3 can run PS3 games, so why would anybody in their right mind want to stream it rather than download it or buy a disc? And payed PSN? Why would anybody in their right mind want that?

@ + BADmanBILL, i wouldnt be worried if i were you, they just show all footage on xbox normally because its what the games are developed on and its what most gaming conventions use, i guess it will look pretty much the same tbh

this doesn’t make or break a game, it’s not a demo.
you give the team and devs feedback to help set the tone of the game and if their happen ot be bugs or exploits.

Helllo Sony I would like expres what has me concerened and my other five close friends, and almost all of my playstation network friends own a Vita we are a little angry with you by the way you are working with the Vita, is too slow we still cant download from our Vitas playstation one games(any) and psp, only some, another thing that hanst been released yet are the aplications Skype, whats happening that skype isnt avaible to be downloaded yet, I hope that for this week is avaible and I would like to know why the other new aplications havent been anounced. Please speak with the Mozilla Firefox company so they develop a better browser for the Vita, or if not a Google Chrome, what we couldnt believe and astonished us was that the Vita doesnt have adobe flash player, and in internet you cant do almost anything without adobe flash player, we cant see videos from websites please in the next update add full support Adobe Flash Player 11.1.102.63, and JavaScrippt belive me you will make me feel glad and all my friends.
remember the best promotion is a satisfied customer and a console (PS VITA) off is bad promotion

To all the off-topic morons complaining about the lack of a skype app on the vita, I have a news flash:

Microsoft bought Skype. Therefore, you will NEVER see Skype on vita. Also to the moron requesting that the ps3 web browser be fixed, update it. They fixed most of the problems 2 updates ago.
