On Monday, Ubisoft unveiled Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad, a mobile game starring iconic characters from across the entire Tom Clancy universe. The game will be available on both iOS and Android devices.

According to the game’s official website, Elite Squad will be a “dynamic 5-vs-5” game, complete with a campaign mode, a player-versus-player mode, and a guild-versus-guild mode. The title brings together characters from The Division, Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell franchises, and includes the bearded Nomad as well as infiltration specialist Sam Fischer himself. Additional characters include Caveira, El Sueño, Montagne, and Nomad.

The trailer, above, shows dozens of additional characters. In a press release, Ubisoft describes the game as a mobile role-playing game with real-time action. Players will be able to collect and upgrade those characters, weapons, and gear before launching them into elaborate battles.

Pre-registration is currently available. Fans who sign up now will score an exclusive character: Colonel Cole D. Walker, leader of the Wolves faction in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. In the video game, Walker will be portrayed by actor Jon Bernthal (The Punisher). No word if he’s reprising the role for the mobile game.
