Ghost Recon Future Soldier: Khyber Strike DLC revealed

New multiplayer maps and game mode launching next week

Ubisoft has announced a fresh round of DLC for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.

The Khyber Strike DLC pack will contain three new multiplayer maps, a fresh multiplayer game mode, a fresh Guerrilla mode map, plus new Achievements/Trophies and a level cap increase of +10.

It'll be available to download from October 9 on Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft Points (£6.85) and from October 10 on PS3 for £7.99.


New multiplayer maps:

  • Switchback: Step off the main road leading down into the city and into a maze of ancient buildings and narrow alleys. The twists and turns of the alleyways turn every corner into a close-quarters deathtrap.
  • Palace: There's no time for reflection even in this magnificent relic. What once was a museum dedicated to showing the glories of the past is now a battlefield, with a massive courtyard at the heart of its contested ground.
  • Transit: A Moscow metro station makes for close quarters and close-range combat. Trains pulling into and out of the station add to the danger as Ghosts and Bodark slug it out underground.

New multiplayer game mode Takeover:

  • Similar to a classic team deathmatch, score points for your team by eliminating enemies. Tip the scales by taking control of the enemy's objective and earn a score multiplier to your team. Defend your team's objective to prevent the enemy from gaining the same advantage. Choose to split your team to defend and attack at the same time, or move as a group and overwhelm your enemy. When the mission ends, the team with highest score wins.

New Guerrilla Mode map Village (4 players online/2 players in local split screen):

  • A peaceful country village finds itself transformed into a battleground, as fighting rages around its central bus station. Long alleyways that run between war-damaged buildings make a perfect hunting ground for snipers, and a shootout near the town's gas station could turn explosive.

Khyber Strike follows on from last month's Raven Strike DLC and July's Arctic Strike DLC.
