Prequel to Future Soldier, Ghost Recon Alpha short film, is outPosted 10:48 am on Monday, May 14th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Out of all the gaming companies out there, I think that Ubisoft is the only one that has potential to create its own movie studio if the company wanted to. I mean, Marvel did it. When Assassin’s Creed II came out, it released a short live-action video featuring Ezio’s dad in Assassin’s Creed Lineage. For Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Ubisoft enlisted Oscar-winners Hervé de Crécy and François Alaux to direct the Ghost Recon Alpha short, a prequel to Future Soldier.
The cool thing about the short is that the four main characters in Alpha are also the 4 playable characters in Future Soldier. There’s a plot in the game where terrorists attack a major European city, which happens right after this movie.

It looks like only 3 of the 4 main characters will be the main characters in the game, since Chuck gets killed in action in Alpha. Why does the black guy always have to die. I wonder if he’ll be replaced by another black soldier.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 22, 2012. PC users will get the game on June 12, 2012.
