With the popularity of Ghost Recon Online and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Ubisoft came up with a crazy idea – "why not mix elements of both?"
The company announced that some Splinter Cell items would cross over into the free-to-play multiplayer game, allowing players to use Sam Fisher's weapons and gear however they please. This content will be compatible with all in-game characters, across all three classes.
In addition, Ubisoft will also add Khyber Stronghold, one of the biggest maps in the game to date.
"The spies of Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon Online's Ghosts can now go toe-to-toe with the Phantoms," said Ubisoft Singapore producer Corey Facteau. "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 Stronghold and use Sam Fisher's items in-game."
Both of these updates are available starting today. You can get an overview of the Khyber Stronghold map in the video tutorial below.
Ghost Recon Online is available now for PC.
