The Year is 2008... Welcome to Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed!


Dear Ghost Recon Fans,

It is my honor to finally make a contribution to the Ghost Recon family in the form of a new mod. I have been working "swiftly, silently, and invisibly" on this for several years, and now that the time has come for my mod to see the light of day, I am overjoyed to be able to give something back at last.

Heroes Unleashed is my tribute to the Ghost Recon community. The mod's aspiration is to honor the makers and fans of this great game, and to be a token of appreciation for all the people who expanded the Ghost Recon universe over the years - with their work, support, ideas, enthusiasm, and sociability. All of you made our beloved game the all-time classic it is today.

The mod is released as a public beta version at this time to give Ghost Recon fans an (albeit not quite complete) surprise Christmas present - a fully playable "teaser" preview of things to come in the mod's final release, which is planned to be completed in spring/summer 2009.

I hope that Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed will provide you all with many additional hours, days, or even years of fun in playing one of the best computer games ever devised.

Happy Holidays,
ApexMods

PS: As part of this introduction, please allow me to quote the official press release for December 24:

ApexMods Unveils "Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed" Add-On for Mac and PC
----------------------------------------------------------------------

THE WORLD WIDE WEB - December 24, 2008 - ApexMods (http://www.ApexMods.com)
today announced the launch of "Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed", a new
add-on mod (as in modification) for the squad-based military tactical
shooter game "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon", a classic published in 2001.

The mod is released as a tribute to the Ghost Recon community. It
aspires to honor the makers and fans of this great game, and to be a
token of appreciation for all the people who contributed to the world
of Ghost Recon over the years.

Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed is the redux of popular content that has
been introduced to the game by various other mods in the past, and it
strives to incorporate those elements of Ghost Recon's history into a
timeless collection, meticulously complemented by novel features.

The mod makes more than 100 maps and missions available in single and
multiplayer mode and offers over 200 different weapons to choose from.
All additions have been carefully integrated and balanced to provide
a homogeneous level of professional audio-visual and technical finish.

Heroes Unleashed is aiming to improve and expand many aspects of the
original game to increase its already highly addictive replayability,
while remaining true to Ghost Recon's unique character and concept.

It also tries to intensify the realistic feel and immersive qualities
of the game, making it more challenging and emphasizing the atypical
Ghost Recon game style: Tactical team play rather than the "solo, run
and shoot, wanna-live-forever" style found in many other FPS games.

If you are looking for killing sprees and fragfests, move right along,
there is nothing to see here. Just as the original, Heroes Unleashed
is predominantly about tactics and teamwork, and a good strategy will
serve you much better than quick reflexes and an itchy trigger finger.

With the combination of all of its features, Heroes Unleashed seeks to
create the optimum Ghost Recon experience for both single player games
as well as multiplayer battles, whether Co-Op, Solo or Team based ones.
The mod wants to accommodate a full spectrum of players from the casual
gamer, over regular clan and guild players, up to league professionals.

Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed will provide gamers with many additional
hours of fun in playing one of the best computer games ever devised.


Availability
------------

The Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed mod is available as a free download
for both Mac and PC from renown Ghost Recon community web sites, e.g.
http://www.GhostRecon.net and http://www.DamnR6.com.

Here it is - the next (beta!) version of Heroes Unleashed (v1.0.0b4). It contains a number of bug fixes and fine-tuning of many features, plus there are new maps, weapons, and a couple of game types for you to enjoy.

The update comes as an installer application that automatically patches your installation of Heroes Unleashed v1.0.0b3 to the new version 1.0.0b4.

Below are the first couple of download links until Monoman updates the download section. Have fun with a new version of Heroes Unleashed!

The next update (v1.0.0b6) for Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed is finally ready. There are no new maps and weapons in the latest installment, but loads of fine tuning and balancing, bug fixes, performance improvements, plus new assets like an overhauled UI, new and improved single and multiplayer game types, and a "Ghost Recon Score" system that measures a player's success in survival (players left alive/wounded/respawns), stealth (level of enemy detection), and kills (percentage of bad guys down) for all SP and COOP game types. The score is displayed upon completion of a mission. Based upon the new stealth routines (complex stuff quite beyond a simple player seen/heard detection counter/limit) which took me forever to - hopefully - get just right, I added new "Stealth" variants of all SP and COOP game types that feature an "-> Avoid Detection" objective which is failed and raises an alarm if the player is detected beyond a flexible/scaling threshold. The stealth games are quite difficult to master, but lots of fun once you get used to a full-stealth approach.

I hope you will enjoy the latest version of Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed!

Sounds good. I like the stealth aspect. Reminds me of the Alpha Squad missions.
