Ubisoft’s detailed how the multiplayer beta of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will work when it goes live in summer.
As already pointed out previously, it’ll be a straight download from Xbox Live via your copy of Splinter Cell: Conviction. Once downloaded from the news feed of Conviction, the beta will be playable from the Games Library section of My Xbox on your 360.
The interesting part is that you can download the beta with no codes required, which basically means you can nick a lend of your friend’s copy of Conviction and download it. Easy.
“In order to get your hands on the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier Beta once it becomes available, you must be connected to Xbox LIVE so that you can download the beta from Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
Once the beta is available, you’ll be able to download it through the news feed on the main menu of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction, free of charge and with no codes required.
The Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier Beta will be available for only a limited time. Once that period expires, the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier Beta link on the Main Menu in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction will no longer be available.
The beta will be accessable via the Xbox 360 Dashboard, into the “Games Library” section.”
The leaflet also shows a BBFC 18 rating for the game, which would be a first for the series, and hinting at a more mature Ghost Recon title then before.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is released this fall for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, with the multiplayer beta exclusive to 360 and Xbox Live users.
