From the time this was announced at last year's E3 I have been torn between feeling like this is another game that pulls further away from the classic Tom Clancy brand of authentic combat, and being excited for an open world game that mixes a bit of Ghost Recon, Just Cause and Far Cry.

They've just released this new trailer that doesn't do much to change that conflicted feeling, but I think I'm choosing to just be excited about it rather than continue saying "things just aren't the way they used to be".  It looks fun!

I miss the old Ubisoft days, when Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon were more complex tactical shooters. I agree with you a that this looks like a combination of Just Cause and Farcry, and that isn't a good thing to me. I have this lingering sense of dread that the game will feature a truckload of collectiblle relics or cell phone message intercepts scattered throughout the map.

I'm not certain that I can blame Ubisoft, however. I don't think the average gamer has the patience for a classic Ghost Recon game any longer.

I enjoyed the classic GR games, going back to GR1, and this looks like a spiritual successor to Mercenaries more than GR.  That said, I always wanted a cleaner sequel to that game and a nice open world in which to cause havoc with friends sounds good to me.  JC 3 is so over the top and does not feature the best shooting mechanics.  GRW also looks to do the open co-op better than The Division did as I see no signs of RPG aspects, which rather turned Division into a loot grind.
