Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Alpha is a 25-minute prequel film to the upcoming game Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier . It is a film following the Ghosts as they go behind enemy lines to eradicate one of Earth’s most wanted war criminals. The following video is a trailer for the full film, which will debut online on May 14th at youtube.com/ghostrecongame .
The video is very closely tied to the Future Soldier game. The characters in the film are the same four soldiers you will play as in Future Soldier. It takes place right before a key story point in the game. The location is actually one of the multiplayer maps in the online mode. There will even be a secret unlock code hidden within the film to unlock an exclusive weapon in Future Soldier.
