I got another chance to speak with the creative director of GRO to get some insight on the game's current status and the new Artic Pack update.
The Arctic Pack is available for Ghost Recon Online players Today. All items are available for purchase in-game via both game (Requisition Points) and premium currencies (Ghost Coins). The Arctic weapon variants will be available for a 2 week period.
GRO stays true to the core gameplay of previous Ghost Recon titles by making combat very tactical and team-focused. Players will have to cooperate with their teammates in order to win.
we'll be testing an item model based around permanence. That means once you earn your core equipment (say, a gun) it's yours to keep for good.
