Ubisoft's free-to-play third-person shooter Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online will soon be enrolling into the Steam Early Access program, the publisher announced today.

Originally launching way back in 2012, the game has seen a number of updates over its lifetime, though the choice to re-launch the still available title is definitely an odd one from Ubisoft. The team has revealed plans to use Early Access to further refine the experience as it builds toward a worldwide launch, though the game is available right now for anyone keen.

Currently the game is only available in Canada for Steam Early Access, though Ubisoft has stated that we can expect a worldwide launch later this Autumn.

"Bringing Ghost Recon Online to Steam has been our goal since the game's inception," says Corey Facteau, Producer at Ubisoft. "We took the time necessary to reach a quality level that can go head to head with the best online games available today before releasing on Steam," stated the press release.

"As the top shooter for gamers who enjoy team gameplay, we have also seen our audience expand to include MOBA fans, who comprise fifty percent of our user base. To ensure a seamless transition to the new platform, we will use Early Access to fine tune the Ghost Recon Online experience before releasing it to the rest of the world."

Ubisoft needs to remake Raven Shield.


Even if they remake it, it will never be as good as Raven Shield they have that new Rainbow 6 game in production so it'll be interesting to see how that goes.
