Tom Clancy's Elite Squad Brings a Franchise Together

Sam Fisher and Friends

With a sizable helping of Tom Clancy games in Ubisoft's arsenal, the company decided to bring some of its most popular games together for an upcoming mobile RPG called Tom Clancy's Elite Squad.

Tom Clancy's Elite Squad was announced during today's Ubisoft Forward, which throws characters from games such as Splinter Cell and The Division into a mobile game. The game is a "military mobile RPG," according to a press release. Players will command five characters from a pool of 70 to partake in campaign missions and PvP battles.

 
 

According to the release, the campaign has "multiple chapters" as characters from the Tom Clancy universe team up to fight a great threat. On the multiplayer side of things, players can either take on other squads comprising five or take part in "guild wars."

The game is available on Apple and Android, and if you pre-register ahead of its release on August 27th, 2020, you'll get some extra goodies. If you want to pre-register, you can check out the official website for Tom Clancy's Elite Squad right now.


Quick Take

Ubisoft's approach for this one is certainly interesting. It appears to be a "kid-friendly" version of Tom Clancy titles, but we all know that these games tend to be catered more towards adults. To me, it feels a little like a huge departure from the tone that these games are known for, which makes it feel a little lifeless. The trailer seems so much like a departure that it's just strange. Anyways, it's a mobile game so I can't complain too much. Still, I can't help but question what the audience for this is.

I love to write, and I love to game. So, I've combined those two hobbies into one! Some of my favorite games include Fire Emblem, Halo, The Elder Scrolls, and World of Warcraft. Sometimes I like to read the occasional fantasy novel, too!
