Ghost Recon Officially Beta
6:00 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, the upcoming squad-based tactical combat game from Aspyr Media (published by Red Storm Entertainment on the PC), has reached the beta stage of its development. This means that all of the games features have been implemented, and beta testers are testing out the product, reporting any problems or bugs they come along. The final estimated release date for Ghost Recon is yet to be announced.

While you wait for Ghost Recon to hit the shelves, you can find out more information about it in IMG's exclusive preview. The title features more of the same addictive strategic gameplay found in the original, as well as improved audio and graphics. Here's a clip from IMG's preview about the new graphics engine:

Ghost Recon uses its own brand new engine. The engine totes vast outdoor areas with expansive hills and valleys. Adding to the realism will be trees that sway in the wind, making it hard to find that sniper who just killed one of your men while hiding in the branches. The impressive character models and the realistic environments create a setting where the camouflage you pick might be a decision between life and death.

Speaking of character models, you won’t find any “clones” in this game. That’s right, every solider and terrorist has his (or her) own unique look. All these small features roll together to create an incredibly immersive game.

You can pre-order Ghost Recon from IMG's store for $43 for subscribers of the MacGames CD. Non-subscribers can still pick it up for the regular price of $49.
