Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was launched a while ago on console and last week was released on PC. But it has now been revealed that the first downloadable content (DLC) will be delayed.
It’s unclear why the DLC has been delayed but it may have something to do with the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier PC edition being so badly ported from console. The Ubisoft forums are abound with lists of complaints from gamers and users about the game and its failure to function in a way that PC gamers expect.
The DLC will be available “sometime in July” the developer has confirmed, but there is no news on whether the it will be coming to PC or not. When it does eventually arrive, PlayStation 3 users and Xbox 360 users will be able to get it for around R90 on PSN and XBL respectively. The only reason Ubisoft has given for the delay is that it would like to “take a small amount of extra time to further polish the content”.
As far as the PC version goes, Ubisoft hasn’t said anything about it just yet but gamers who own Future Soldier on PC should prepare for some downloading as the game is currently on version 1.2 just a few days after launch with the total size weighing in at around 400MB for both patches. The day-one patch that was released included an error fix to a problem where the game wouldn’t recognise a keyboard and mouse, which happens to be quite a large error for a PC game.
