After quite a few delays and a great deal of patience, fans of the Ghost Recon series were happy to hear that the beta for Future Soldier received a concrete date. Via a press release, Ubisoft announced that the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier multiplayer beta would be live later this month and last through early May.
Sounds good, right? Wrong. Owners of the Ubisoft title Splinter Cell: Conviction game were promised “early access” for the beta when purchasing select copies. Scanning through the press release that Ubisoft released today reveals that owners of Conviction will not, in fact, get any early access at all.
While fans were incredibly happy that there is still going to be a beta, it’s a little frustrating to see that the early access will be removed. Owners of select copies of Splinter Cell: Conviction were promised “a week of early access” for the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier beta.
Earlier this year, Ubisoft went on record to state that a week of early access would be granted to this gamers. To see this opportunity be removed is certainly disheartening for fans of the Ghost Recon series.
