The original Ghost Recon has been one of my all time favorite games. I have been keeping track of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier since 2010. The game is only a month away and I can't wait to play the beta on the 19th. I preordered the game from GameStop to get the Signature Edition as well as access to the beta. I also still have my copy of Splinter Cell: Conviction. UBI has been saying from the get go that if you had Splinter Cell: Conviction you would have early access to the beta. Now UBI isn't giving early access. If you own SCC you will get access to the beta from the main menu of the game. They are also sending out 3 codes to your email address tied to UPlay so you can give 3 friends beta codes. Also, if you preorder the game from GameStop you will get a code sent to your email as well as 3 friend additional codes on the 19th. If all that information is true I will have 8 beta keys. I am trying my best to get as many friends involved in this beta. I have high hopes for this game, more so than any other.
I have several games on my wishlist/tracked list. If this game flops (praying it doesn't), I will be purchasing either some XBLA games in it's place; Trails: Evolution, Deadlight, and Counter Strike:GO or Diablo III on the PC. If this game is a huge success and I can get most of my XBL friends involved I will be passing on those other games. The rest of the year in gaming is set. Far Cry 3, Resident Evil 6, Assassin's Creed III, and Hitman: Absolution are going to finish out the year for me. I don't know of any years past that I have been this excited about the upcoming games.
