30-Minute, Live-Action Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Prequel Film Teased

When it first announced the franchise's new direction, Ubisoft revealed that a 30-minute live-action film prequel for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was in the works. Today, a teaser for the film--titled Ghost Recon: Alpha-- was made public by GameTrailers after debuting at Comic-Con 2010. You can watch the teaser after the jump.

The film, like Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Lineage YouTube series, is being developed to promote the franchise to a broader audience. Ghost Recon: Alpha is being directed by Academy award-winners François Alaux and Hervé de Crécy (for the animated short Logorama) and written by Children of Men scribe Tim Sexton and Logorama writer Gregory Pruss.

Ghost Recon: Alpha is set for a 2011 release, presumably alongside the recently delayed Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Ubisoft has yet to reveal how it plans to release the full film; however, we anticipate its eventual release won't be as stealthy as the soldiers it's out to promote.

(NOTE: GameTrailers video is not currently supported in the GameCenter application)

      Yep. I want to see gameplay, not CGI crap.

      It's probably advertising budget, so it would never be used to make the game better, only for it to sell more copies.

      the AssCreed 2 video was sweet, and a way to introduce family/friends to the game in a way that wasn't all "HERE'S A GAME, LIKE NERDS PLAY"

      Believe it or not, some people are actually curious to see how games would translate to the big screen. I don't think we should abandon the idea just because Ewe Boll turned out to be a failure.
