Ubisoft is gearing up to launch Ghost Recon Commander on Facebook

Ubisoft is gearing up to launch Ghost Recon Commander on Facebook, the first game developed by Loot Drop after the studio’s Cloudforest Expedition was shelved last year by RockYou. The game is designed to interact with Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, a console and PC game releasing May 22. This is Ubisoft’s second Facebook companion game after 2010′s Assassin’s Creed-based Project Legacy.

Ubisoft VP of Digital Publishing Chris Early tells us that Ubisoft came up with the general theme for the Ghost Recon Commander, but was relatively hands-off when it came to designing the game’s mechanics beyond the idea of crossover content. Loot Drop co-founders Brenda Brathwaite and John Romero set out to create a Facebook game that would appeal to core gamers, while leveraging some of the lessons learned from Ravenwood Fair — the Lolapps game on which the two worked before forming their own studio. The game was shown for the first time to press at a private event at the beginning of the month.

Gameplay in Ghost Recon Commander requires players to establish and supply small squads of soldiers (“Ghosts”) that are sent on black-op missions, which include rescuing hostages, item retrieval and eliminating all enemies on a map. Each successful mission earns soft currency cash, which is used to buy new equipment for characters and to construct a base, which supports the squads. Replaying these missions increases the player’s cumulative score, which increase star ratings and net larger rewards. The game will launch with one campaign containing 10 missions, but more missions will be added soon after.
