Think Halo 4 is the only new game to have a live-action short film promoting it? Think again, as today Ubisoft releases a trailer for the upcoming live-action project put together for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Solider.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Alpha will be a 25-minute “prequel film” for the game, one which “follows the Ghosts as they are dropped deep behind enemy lines in order to eliminate one of the world’s most sought-after war criminals.”

Here are a few details about Alpha, straight from Ubisoft:

  • Characters: The main four characters in the movie are the same four playable characters in the video game.
  • Storyline: The movie takes place immediately before a key turning point in the video game’s storyline, a vicious attack against a major European city.
  • Location: the location where the movie takes place will be one of the multiplayer maps available in the adversarial mode of the video game.
  • Exclusive unlock: a secret code is also hidden in the movie, enabling access via Ghost Recon Network to an exclusive weapon unlock playable in Ghost Recon Future Soldier.

Want to check out Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Alpha? It’ll premiere here in the US on Thursday, May 3rd at 6:30pm (5:30pm Central) on G4 TV.
