Ghost Recon Online went into open beta as far back as August 2012. But in order to mark the event that it's coming to Steam and launching fully, Ubisoft have decided to rename the game Ghost Recon Phantoms.
"The end of open beta is a new start to the game. The difference between where the game started and the game today is so considerable that we felt we should mark it with a fresh identity," said Corey Facteau, producer of Ghost Recon Phantoms. "Feedback from our five million players throughout beta enabled us to continuously increase the content of the game and to improve what makes the game unique, the blending of intense shooters with the teamwork and tactical depth of MOBAs. Ghost Recon Phantoms brings a narrative layer to the game based around The Phantoms, ex-Ghosts and current adversaries who left The Ghosts to pursue personal agendas. We've also added new gameplay elements to expand the depth of the game and give new experiences to seasoned veterans. Of course, no accounts will be wiped, and our current players will not have to start over."
The game has received major updates to character models and maps as can be seen in these before and after shots.
