Ghost Recon Online getting Splinter Cell weapons, new map

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online, Ubisoft's free-to-play shooter, will incorporate weapons and gear from the Splinter Cell franchise in the upcoming 0.13.0 update, Ubisoft announced today.

"The spies of Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon Online's Ghosts can now go toe-to-toe with the Phantoms," said Corey Facteau, Ghost Recon Online's producer at Ubisoft Singapore.

The upcoming patch, which has not been dated, will also add the ability for players to gift items through the game's store. A new map called Khyber Stronghold will also arrive in the game.

"Khyber Stronghold is the most ambitious map we've developed to date," Facteau said. "We're transporting our players to the Middle East, to a city inspired by Peshawar, Pakistan. Our community is more than three million strong, who we work to continuously provide new content for. Our goal is to keep their experience fresh and dynamic, so we're looking forward to seeing how they explore Khyber Stonghold and use Sam Fisher's items in-game."

The update follows the release last month of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the latest installment in the stealth action franchise. For more on the game whose weapons will appear in Ghost Recon Online, be sure to read and watch Polygon's Splinter Cell: Blacklist review.
