Alpha Tom Clancys Future Soldier Gets Prequel Movie, Release Trailer

Despite all the positive buzz coming off the multiplayer beta for the next Ghost Recon squad-based shooter, Ubisoft isn’t done stoking the excitement machine just yet.  Witness Ghost Recon Alpha, a professionally produced short film about the squad’s last mission just before the events of the game.

Ghost Recon Alpha is deeply connected with the video game, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
•  Characters: The main four characters in the movie are the same four playable characters in the video game.
•  Storyline: The movie takes place immediately before a key turning point in the video game’s storyline, a vicious attack against a major European city.
•  Location: the location where the movie takes place will be one of the multiplayer maps available in the adversarial mode of the video game.
•  Exclusive unlock: a secret code is also hidden in the movie, enabling access via Ghost Recon Network to an exclusive weapon unlock playable in Ghost Recon Future Soldier.
