“Ghost Recon Alpha” Is Your Short Film View of the Tom Clancy-verse

The new short shows off the future of war.

The video shows the members of the Alpha Squadron, members of the U.S. armed forces, going after a war criminal in the near future Eastern Europe (which is in part where Ghost Recon Future Soldier will be set).

Publisher Ubisoft put this short together alongside Little Minx films, which acts a prequel to the upcoming game, featuring the four playable characters from Future Soldier as members of the cast of characters here. The location in the film will be a multiplayer map from the game and if you look carefully, there’s a secret weapon unlock code somewhere in the Ghost Recon Alpha’s running time.

Here’s the synopsis:

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Alpha boasts a line-up of top Hollywood talent. The film was directed by Academy Award winners Hervé de Crécy and François Alaux, who won an Oscar in 2010 for Logorama, and produced by Rhea Scott for Little Minx, a Ridley Scott & Associates company. Tim Sexton, 2010 Academy Award nominee for Children of Men, and Gregory Pruss wrote the gripping script. The film was shot by District 9 cinematographer Trent Opaloch; edited by Pietro Scalia, two time Academy Award winner for Black Hawk Down and JFK; with sound effects and sound effects editing by Per Hallberg, two time Academy Award winner for The Bourne Ultimatum and Braveheart as well as Michael Mann’s Heat; production design by Jan Roelfs (Gattaca, Alexander; and costume design by Sammy Sheldon (V for Vendetta, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Black Hawk Down). Military Weapons Specialist Harry Humphries, consultant on such notable action films such as Transformers, Thor, Iron Man and Armageddon, ensured that the futuristic weaponry in the film was entirely realistic.

Ghost Recon Future Soldier will be available on May 22nd for the PS3 and 360, June 12th on the Pc.
