As the commander of the Ghosts, the most elite special operations fighting force in the world, your mission is to stop the Russian ultranationalist Yuri Treskayev from coming to power. From the hot deserts of Kazakhstan to the towns and villages of Ukraine and the frozen lands of Siberia, you must discover and disable the secret Soviet-era "Dead Hand" bases which Treskayev is using to build an army of drones to seize power. You will have access to full resources to build, train, and equip your team, using increasingly high-tech weapons and armor.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars is the first tactical, turn-based Ghost Recon game, featuring 3D cut scenes and in-game effects, deep team management options, and a 1-vs-1 multiplayer mode on the same console (there is no online multiplayer support). The game system and interface will be familiar to players of Advance Wars and Fire Emblem, but with some significant changes; In particular, elevation and cover play a critical tactical role. The 'support fire' system also makes the combat system distinctive.
