Online Features using Game Ranger

Several titles in the Ghost Recon series originally utilized Gamespy services to deliver multiplayer features to players.

Following the closure of Gamespy on May 31st 2014, Ubisoft has coordinated with the developers of Game Ranger to allow Ghost Recon communities to continue enjoying multiplayer features on PC. Below is a full list of Ghost Recon titles supported by the Game Ranger program.

Ghost Recon

The Game Ranger program can be downloaded from here.

1. Click the Download Game Ranger button.

2. Run the GameRanger Setup application.
Open the file GameRangerSetup.exe and click Install.
If a message appears asking if you are sure you want to run this file, click Run.

3. Create a new free account.
GameRanger will prompt you to create a new GameRanger account or use an existing one, and you will need to enter your valid e-mail address. You should use the address your friends are most likely to know.

4. Activate your account and log in.
Within minutes you should receive a confirmation e-mail to activate your GameRanger account. If it's not in your inbox, try looking in your junk folder, and mark it as a trusted-sender, or "not spam." Adding the sender to your address book is also a good idea.

5. Invite your friends.
Under the Community menu, there are various options to invite your friends to try GameRanger. You can also search to see if they already have GameRanger accounts.

6. Host or Join a game.
To join an existing game, select a game room from the list and click Join Game. If the game room has a green dot next to it, then it is already playing. Some games do not allow you to join if they have already started. Alternatively, you can create a new game by clicking Host Game.

Please note, while we certainly encourage members of the Ghost Recon community to continue their multiplayer experience with the help of Game Ranger, we do not offer direct support for this program.
