As part of their ongoing reinvention of Ghost Recon Phantom, Ubisoft has implemented a new matchmaking system designed to take into account both the player’s skill and now also equipment. The change is geared to ensure players, particularly newer ones, are not unfairly matched against those of equal skill, but whose equipment is superior. New players will now also play against other green individuals until level 8 up from 5.
Speaking of equipment, players may feel relieved to know Ubisoft is squishing the gun tiers by removing tiers 1 and 2 altogether. Now new players will automatically begin with tier 3 weapons (now tier 1) and may work their way up to the new tier 7 cap. Coinciding with the shift in weapon tiers, Ubisoft has announced weapon prices will be “significantly reduced”. Weapon customization is also being fleshed out more, with the introduction of stock and barrel options through the game’s new “ModMaster System”.
As Ghost Recon Phantom nears its April 10th release on Steam, Ubisoft will be rolling out further updates aimed at improving the game’s visuals with enhanced lighting and a new artstyle. For more info on these changes and Ubisoft’s overall vision for GRP check out the video below:
