Ghost Recon Future Soldier 'Arctic Strike' Map Pack DLC hits July 17
The first wave of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier DLC, the "Arctic Strike" Map Pack, will put the freeze on Xboxen and PS3s come July 17. For your hard-earned 800 MS Points (or $9.99, respectively), your futuristic soldiering experience will be augmented by three new multiplayer maps, a new multiplayer mode called "Stockade," a new guerilla co-op map, six new weapons and an increased level cap.

Arctic Strike was meant to launch 14 days sooner on July 3, but was delayed due to polish concerns -- not to be confused with pole-ish concerns, which anyone travelling to the arctic circle would undoubtedly have.%Gallery-160185%
