E3: GRAW downloadable content revealed

E3: GRAW downloadable content revealed

Ubisoft has announced a DLC pack for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, and that it will be playable this week at their booth at E3. More info about it will be released "soon", and while waiting you can check out this image from it. The explosion in the background looks nice - did it really used to look that good?

Well too bad we will have to pay for it not like the early days of xbox live. Well if it is worth the money than why not as long as it's not along the lines of 200 MP for an armour like Oblivion (or was that 300 MP, I cant remember)

if its not free than thats a rip off....xbox had it for free so i would exspect it to free this time!!

The age of freebies died with the original Xbox, besides that was just a test to see if people would download content and they did so hit em with micro payments.

Yeah, it's a shame really, this should be interesting though since previous GR's have always had downloadable content released for free.

I think some of this might actually be free, they reserved some of the 1000 achievement points for DLC.

Why would I pay for new maps when I still suck at the old ones?
Commented on 2006-05-08 19:50:36
I should be free, because its obviously part of the game because they left free achievement points.

lol some poeple take such a simplistic view..... maybe they put the extra achievements in for when this was developed...


why do people exspect a company to spend thousands of dollars on new maps and give them away? no point harping to the past when there was no micro transaction model to charge for maps.. the publisher would of back then if they could of

People also seem to be missing the main point that it costs MONEY, yes, REAL MONEY, to develop this download content. And no-one is forcing you to download it. It is just there, if you want it, and feel that the extra invesment is worth if for the amount of extra play time you will get with it.

Looks nice. I might get this game in July.

Oh, yes, i'm sure the horse armour for Oblivion cost Bethesda millions to make, hence why they charged for it.

And onto GRAW, the game came with just ten maps as it is, while the previous ones came with 15-20+, go figure.

I hope the add in a lobby system and faster game querying in tandem with this Downloadable pack, that would make the game a diamond.

About the game

    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (4 Hours ago)

    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (4 Hours ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (4 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (4 Hours ago)
