With the release of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier drawing ever so near, Ubisoft has presented gamers with a new incentive: a few details on the game’s first available DLC, entitled ‘Arctic Strike.’

The ‘Arctic Strike’ package for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier comes equipped with an undisclosed amount of new maps for players who, presumably, love snow levels. These new stages will take our soldiers to the streets of Moscow and the far reaches of the Arctic Circle. This is not just any old map pack, as the DLC will also include a new mode multiplayer mode, a new ‘Guerrilla Mode’ co-op map, and six additional weapons.

Game Rant took a visit to Ubisoft’s to check out GR:FS and there are plenty of things to look forward to in its multiplayer modes. The trailer for the game types speaks for itself.

Sadly Ubisoft has not given any information other than what has been mentioned above. We can probably expect an announcement trailer that will provide a better visual of what’s in store for this new content pack, but for now the image below will have to satisfy our interest.

Anyone anxiously awaiting Ghost Recon: Future Soldier may have already seen the 25-minute live-action short film, Ghost Recon: Alpha. If you missed it, it will also be available through the Ghost Recon Youtube channel.

Alpha captures all of the action and events leading up to Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. It was said in the first and second trailers for Ghost Recon: Alpha that there is a hidden code within the live-action short film that will unlock a special weapon available through the Ghost Recon Network. If a similar offer is at work in this new DLC, we’ll keep you up to date.

‘Arctic Strike’ will become available July 3 for 800 Microsoft Points or $10 for the Xbox 360 or PS3 respectively. There is no mention of a PC version of this DLC currently available.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier releases May 22, 2012, in North America, and May 24, 2012 in Europe, for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version releases June 12.
