The release date for Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier has been set for June 15th in the UK. It will come out as both a physical release and a digital download.

A one-time internet connection will be required to install the game, after that players can access it offline.

With the release date announcement the developer has also informed gamers of some of the PC-specific features that they can look forward to enjoying.

This includes higher standard visual with DirectX 11 support and enhancement, which allows for post process effects, hi-quality assets, multi-monitor support, tessellation, compute shaders-based realistic lighting and volumetric fog.

An online widget will allow for gamers to connect with their friends and form parties at a moment's notice from any screen. Through the widget there will also be a much more simplified and flexible invitation system that makes forming parties a lot easier.

PC gamers will also be able to fully customise the controls to their own keyboards in order for the most tailored and personalised playing experience.

Ghost Recon Future Solider was originally not planned for released on the PC because Ubisoft were concerned with piracy. They chose instead to release the free-to-play game Ghost Recon Online.

"When we started Ghost Recon Online we were thinking about Ghost Recon: Future Solider; having something ported in the classical way without any deep development, because we know that 95 per cent of our consumers will pirate the game. So we said okay, we have to change our mind," said Ghost Recon Online producer Sebastian Arnoult to PC Gamer.

“We have to adapt, we have to embrace this instead of pushing it away. That’s the main reflection behind Ghost Recon Online and the choice we’ve made to go in this direction.”

Future Solider is the fourth game in the Ghost Recon series. It sees the team follow a fictional, highly classified squad in the United States Army Special Forces.

The latest game sees one Ghost team track down people behind a dirty bomb attack that killed another team. The squad travels to the likes Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia and Norway to try to solve the mystery.

Ubisoft have also recently announced Ghost Recon: Commander, a free-to-play game on Facebook and iOS.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801333949-ADNFCR
