Khyber Strike, the third DLC pack for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, has been detailed by Ubisoft.

The pack will include new multiplayer maps, a new multiplayer game mode called “Takeover,” a new Guerrilla Mode co-op map, new achievements, and an increased level cap of +10.

The three new multiplayer maps are:

  • 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.

The game mode, Takeover, is similar to a classic team deathmatch, where you score points for your team by eliminating enemies. Take 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.

The Guerrilla Mode map “Village” is for four players online or two 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 will be available for download on October 9 on Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft points and on October 10 for £7.99 on PS3.
