The wait is finally over! Today, Ubisoft announced that the highly anticipated rebranding of the F2P third-person shooter MMO, Ghost Recon Online, is now available on Windows PC and Steam. Ghost Recon Phantoms endured a somewhat bumpy beta with many players expressing their concern regarding a large number of the games features and mechanics but instead of launching an unfinished product with a big name backing, Ubisoft instead decided to overhaul practically every area of the game – and the result, Ghost Recon Phantoms.
Players can expect an entirely reworked new player experience, giving new Ghost’s access to better weapons much quicker than previously possible, opening more areas of the game much sooner. A myriad of new customization options have also been introduced, allowing players to customize weapons and character appearance with the new ModMaster toolset.
Matchmaking, one of the biggest concerns during beta testing, has also seen a complete overhaul. Ubisoft are confident that the new matchmaking system will guarantee a fair gaming experience, regardless of skill or shooting background.

a team, you prevail,” Corey Facteau explained.
