SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA Â September 26th, 2013 - Today, UbisoftÂ® announced the launch of a new crossover for its free-to-play PC shooter, Tom ClancyÂs Ghost Recon OnlineÂ®.

Following the release of the critically-acclaimed Tom ClancyÂs Splinter CellÂ® BlacklistÂ, Ghost Recon Online players will be able to use the weapons and gear of Splinter Cell lethal operative Sam Fisher to fully customize their in-game character for all three classes. ÂThe spies of Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon OnlineÂs Ghosts can now go toe-to-toe with the Phantoms,Â explains Corey Facteau, GROÂs Producer at Ubisoft Singapore.
Also new to Ghost Recon Online, players looking to gift items, including new Splinter Cell gear, will now be able to do so easily in the store.
In the same patch, Ghost Recon Online is also revealing a new map. ÂKhyber Stronghold is the most ambitious map weÂve developed to date. WeÂre transporting our players to the Middle East, to a city inspired by Peshawar, Pakistan,Â added Facteau. ÂOur 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 weÂre looking forward to seeing how they explore Khyber Stonghold and use Sam FisherÂs items in-game.Â
