Ghost Recon: Future Soldier console beta announced

Plus, stat-tracking social service Ghost Recon Network.

A multiplayer beta for forthcoming tactical shooter Ghost Recon: Future Soldier runs from 19th April until 2nd May on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, publisher Ubisoft has announced.

The trial will let up to 12 players choose from three classes - rifleman, engineer or scout - and access two different game modes.

Conflict sees players battling it out to complete various objectives around the game map, while Saboteur asks you to locate a bomb and then detonate it at your opponent's HQ. Both modes are playable on two maps: Pipeline and Mill.

Conflict will be available from 19th April, while Saboteur unlocks on 26th April.

Anyone who owns an Xbox 360 copy of Splinter Cell: Conviction gets access to the beta. If that's not you, you'll need to pre-order Future Soldier for a key.

Publisher Ubisoft has also announced Ghost Recon Network, a companion service that lets you tracks stats and connect with other player via smartphone, tablet or a web browser.

The app will let you customise weapon load-outs on the go, access your player performance details, challenge friends, check up on their progress, manage your squad and unlock various in-game extras. See the screens below for a closer look.

It will launch in tandem with the game on 25th May, though anyone in on the beta will get early access to a few of its features.

The PC version of the game follows a few weeks later on 15th June.
