Ghost Recon Future Soldier: Raven Strike DLC Out Today

Greetings Ghosts! I’m happy to announce that Raven Strike is now available. This second downloadable content package for Ghost Recon Future Soldier features three new missions playable cooperatively, a new Guerrilla Mode map, and new Trophies & Challenges.

We created Raven Strike with Ghost Recon fans in mind: large maps, challenging situations and non-linear paths are the key ingredients of this awesome addition to the Ghost Recon Future Soldier experience.

New Campaign Missions

SECUREDAWN_PSBLOG

In Secure Dawn, a plane transporting a highly valuable VIP has been shot down over a forested area next to the Russian border. A distress beacon has been received. The Ghosts deploy to find the VIP and safely extract him. With sensor grenades, drone and camouflage all out of commission, the player will have to take care of business the old-fashioned way!

COLDWALKER_PSBLOG

In Cold Walker, High Command have tracked a Raven’s Rock mobile command center to the inside of a train depot, deep in the heart of Russia. The Ghosts are deployed to locate and acquire precious intel. Cold Walker features multiple environment types: a massive open environment to test your infiltration skills; a complex and dangerous rail yard for intense combat, where cover, CQC, and reaction times are vital; and more…

ARGENTTHUNDER_PSBLOG

In Argent Thunder, the Ghosts are sent out to eliminate four Raven’s Rock VIPs trying to trigger a nationalist uprising in the city. At night, in a besieged Moscow, they will have to use the full potential of their tools to comprehend the dangers of the battlefield: numerous highly-trained enemies on the surrounding buildings, rooftops, bridges and vehicles promise a difficult fight!

GUERRILLA_PSBLOG

A New Guerrilla Mode Map

In Guerrilla mode, you have to secure and hold strategic positions against waves of incoming enemies. The first wave is all about stealth: take over the enemy HQ as quietly as possible and then hold the position against new waves of enemies. Every 10 waves, you have to secure and hold a new position. Each Guerrilla map features 50 waves of enemies. The new Guerrilla Mode map introduced by the Raven Strike DLC is called Sawmill.

The rising fog is turning this remote camp into a deathtrap. Dense woods nearby are perfect for cover and brutal close quarter combat. Drones can operate in the wide open areas near the sawmill. Play the Sawmill map alone, split-screen, on LAN, or over the internet with your friends.

From the store update two posts before:-

PS3 DLC
Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Raven Strike
Prices: £7.99/€9.99/AU$15.95

Looks good, though considering how the multiplayer (achivements)- ahem, I mean trophies- frustrate me and put me off the pride of my 100% complete campaign, and the previous DLC just adds to my problem, I’m going to be leaving this one for a while.

Though like I said, it looks good, so I hope to pick it up in some kind of sale or bundle down the line. Maybe try and find a group to mop up ‘completion’ of the competitive multiplayer in one sweep, since I’ve not been enjoying it on my own at all.

 

its not out in the uk!! why and when people

 

Why is this £11.99 on the store when it is supposed to be £7.99?

    Antoine Emond 12 September, 2012 @ 5:23 pm    

    £11.99 is the correct price for the Raven Strike DLC as announced a few weeks ago. I will alert the PS Team that the store update announcement is not correct.

    Fred Dutton 12 September, 2012 @ 5:28 pm    

    1,000 apologies. Incorrect price information was posted earlier. Correct price is: £11.99/€14.99/AU$23.95.

Well the xbox version is available on the website (at time of writing) 1200 points, which comes to just over £10, so neither price is really comparable. Ought to be £9.99 for parity if the xbox price is correct. However the previous one is up for 800 points so I wonder if 1200 is an error or not.

Will have to wait for official word -from someone who has carefully confirmed the final price, as publishers have been known to be unreliable at the last minute.

Well there you have it. It’s 20% overpriced on PSN.
That is just silly.

 

Not only is PSN overpriced compared to Xbox, but;

14.99 Euro = $18.50 Aus
11.99 Pound = $18.50 Aus
$14.99 USA = $14.35 Aus

Yet you are charging us $23.95?

I eagerly switched on the PS3 to download this as soon as i got home, but i refuse to constantly pay these highway robbery prices.

This is a debacle.

You have already had to refund us $15 this year because you routed us in BF3 Premium.

Fix this

 

Was ready to jump onboard (just like I did with Arctic Strike)….

But £11.99 is just too much for campaign dlc.

Fingers crossed the next dlc is for multiplayer maps.

That’s the wrong Tom Clancy’s game to be updated. They should focus on bringing new splinter cell game to the ps3 :(
