Today, Ubisoft announced the upcoming launch of the Project TOPOS: Beta Map Testing program for its free-to-play, PC Online shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online. Scheduled to start within the month of April, the Project TOPOS: Beta Map Testing program will allow the vibrant Ghost Recon Online community to play an integral role in shaping the design and development of new maps in the game.
The community’s engagement with the game and their feedback have always been an important central force in guiding the evolution of the Ghost Recon Online experience, and the Ubisoft Singapore development team is now taking it to the next level with the Project TOPOS program. The program will allow all Ghost Recon Online players to play on beta versions of maps that are still under development. More importantly, the community will be able to share their feedback of these maps through dedicated Ghost Recon Online Project TOPOS forum channels. This feedback will help guide the Ubisoft Singapore development team in further improving the design and quality of these beta maps.
To participate in the Project TOPOS program, Ghost Recon Online players will need to be a part of a clan. There will be 3 Project TOPOS beta maps at the start, and these will be available in the Clan Match section of Ghost Recon Online.
According to Theo Sanders, the game’s Lead Producer: “Our community plays an important role in shaping how Ghost Recon Online will evolve. With Project TOPOS, we have another platform with which to closely involve our community in shaping not only the design of the maps that we have planned, but more importantly, what they want their Ghost Recon Online experience to be.”
We interviewed Theo last year:
Developed by Ubisoft Singapore, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online delivers a premium online multiplayer shooter experience that is downloadable and playable for free on PC. Players can choose between three classes: Assault, Specialist, or Recon, to suit their particular style of play. As they evolve through the game, each Class character can deploy unique Class Devices and other hi-tech equipment to enhance not only their individual combat effectiveness, but also that of their team. Players can enhance their game experience by using either in-game points or premium currency to purchase and equip their Ghosts with weapons, gear and other boosts. Tactical team play is crucial for victory in the fierce online matches with up to 16 players.
