Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed, the ruthlessly unforgiving tactical shooter experience. True hardcore realism, with nonlinear play, real-world physics, and ultra smart AI. Infinite replayability, with tons of worldwide maps, missions, game types, international special forces units, and a massive arsenal of authentic weapons and equipment.

After about one and a half decades of development I've finally finished the (hopefully) last beta version of Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed before the full 1.0.0 release. I've rebuilt nearly the entire mod from scratch and consequently messed around with pretty much everything for this one. Quite happy with the outcome, especially as there's more hardcore tactical realism than ever before.

Oh man, I'm so happy! You have no idea how long we've all been waiting for this.Ghost Recon is one of the finest classics ever, and the prime example of open, tactical and realistic gameplay.

Thanks for all your hard work :)

Hey Apex, I posted a bit earlier to see if your mod was still in development. I'm amazed and so happy to see after coming home from a vacation you've released another version.

I really appreciate the work you do for this mod and wanted to say thanks for all the hard work and for keeping this great old game alive. I'll be trying out the new version with my buddies as soon as I can, hope you're doing well and thanks for the work you do for one of my favorite games (First played GR on a console when I was younger! Look at it now! Haha).
