The newly designed 'Attica' map for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Phantoms allows for "more circulation and flanking" than its original, says Ubisoft. Holding control will prove harder for teams.
Overall the game's popularity is rising, says Ubisoft, including in areas it was already available in open beta. It's now Steam's third most played free-to-play game with 500k daily website users.
“Attica Heights Reloaded will make it more difficult for a team to keep control of the capture point, which will require teams to craft new strategies to hold control," said producer Corey Facteau.
The new Attica has some fundamental changes like having the entire level relit with a night setting, staircases added to both sides for easy movement between floors and spawn points pushed back from the capture point.
“We are seeing a lot of new players from countries where the game was already available during open beta, as well as from newly opened territories including Brazil and Argentina. We are also seeing arise in popularity of the game in Asia, in particular Thailand, South Korea and Singapore, which is especially important to our team as Singapore is where the game was created,” he continued.
“To keep our new and veteran players engaged, we plan to keep improving Ghost Recon Phantoms by releasing regular new content and incorporating player feedback and suggestions to help us shape the future of the game.”
