Eastern Europe, 2008. War has broken out on the borders of Russia, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. That's when the call goes out for the Ghosts - an elite handful of specially trained U.S. Army Green Berets armed with the latest technology and trained to use the deadliest weapons. Their mission: Spearhead the way for a NATO peacekeeping force, and keep the lid on the conflict before it mushrooms...literally.

GHOST RECON: HEROES UNLEASHED 1.0.0 (MAC & PC)

The Ruthlessly Unforgiving Tactical Shooter Experience

Hardcore realism, with nonlinear play, real-world physics, and smart AI.
Infinite replayability, with tons of maps, missions, units, and equipment.


INTRODUCTION

Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed offers a ruthlessly unforgiving tactical FPS experience by maximizing realism in every aspect of the game. Weapons match their real-life counterparts in accuracy, effectiveness, and handling. AI displays terrifying acumen in trying to outmaneuver you. Missions take place in open-world locations and are entirely nonlinear, with a minimum of scripted events and utmost randomization, for infinite replayability.

Heroes Unleashed pushes tactical realism to the extreme, setting it light years apart from anything you are accustomed to in today’s ubiquitous action shooters. One shot can kill. There is no magical healing, fantasy gear, sci-fi enemy markers, handholding, or guide towards certain victory. It is just you and your squad, on your own behind enemy lines, with caution as your best bet to survive.

Whether you choose to play online or alone, with friends or AI, Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed delivers a rivetingly realistic squad-based military combat you won’t find anywhere else.

• Nonlinear gameplay, real-world physics, ultra smart AI

Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed


RELEASE NOTES

Almost ten years after the mod’s initial public beta, and the better part of two decades of development, I’m happy to at last present you with the full (non-beta) release of Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed.

In view of severe development time constraints due to other work/life obligations, tracking down and eliminating bugs and stability issues, as well as finalizing the organization of file and folder structures was my primary concern for this development stage. To finally take the mod out of its prolonged beta phase, I focussed mainly on fixing important things "under the hood" rather than adding new content, and while I still could not resist to sneak in a couple of new things here and there, I decided to postpone any further feature expansion until future point release updates. A modder's work is never done... ;-)

Once again, I’d like to thank the amazing GhostRecon.net community for their unwavering support. You folks keep me going in this seemingly never-ending endeavor, and without your feedback and suggestions, your rigorous testing, as well as your ongoing development of bug fixes, improvements, and add-ons for both the game and its mods, neither our beloved Ghost Recon nor Heroes Unleashed would be what they are today.

Here’s especially looking at you, Wombat50 and AlexKimov! Huge thanks to both of you, for invaluable help in fixing a boatload of map model and texture properties tagging issues (e.g. AI transparency)! As Alex and others are creating new mod tools like texture and 3D model plugins for modern development software, laying the groundwork for a full SDK, the future looks brighter than ever for modding original Ghost Recon.

There is a huge amount of new stuff I’d like to add/implement in future updates, but for now I hope this full release of Heroes Unleashed will allow you to recapture that unparalleled original Ghost Recon feeling and enjoy the true spirit of unfettered tactical realism.

Such a great game, I remember played on this one woodland mission, as a sniper with my ghillie suit on, id go out in the middle of a field, fire a couple shots, then run and hide in the bushes and trees, wait for people to come until there was about 10 of them, and take them all out.

This game will always have a special place on my hard drive reserved for all those badass late 90's - early 2000's video games. Anyone know if the multiplayer still has any following? I remember the COOP being great fun in this game.

..I can't believe how much fun this game still is 10 years later. Its aged well especially the game play department. So many add-on's for this 10 years later as well that there are endless hours of play time.

Has anyone noticed the bullet simulation?

I see it all the time; where one of my bullets goes right through an enemy, and then will fly off in some odd direction!

Hear, hear! Ghost Recon is one of those very rare oldschool hardcore realistic non-linear tactical shooters. They don't make them like this anymore. Today we are force-fed arcade rail shooter console shovelware with nice graphics, poor bunny-hopping twitch gameplay, and almost zero replayability. Good thing the flame still burns in classics like this one.
