Ghost Recon: Phantoms, the free-to-play tactical multiplayer shooter formerly known as Ghost Recon Online, is once again joining forces with Assassin’s Creed for a franchise crossover. In addition to returning gear from the previous crossover during the game’s beta phase, the new Assassin’s Creed packs feature five new weapons and unique hoods and tactical suits for each class.

Available items include:

• Three new iconic Assassin’s Creed Hoods and Tactical Suits

• Five new top-of-the-line, Tier VII Assassin’s Creed themed weapons (Ak-12 SV AC, PKM SV AC, M3A1 C AC, M960 C AC, M14 Tactical AC)

• Five classic Assassin’s Creed pack weapons (F2000 SP AC, Fiveseven AC, MG36 KV AC, P90 C AC, Sentinel SR-1 AC)

Act fast if you want to get these Assassin’s Creed items as they will only be available for four weeks, starting today. Ubisoft’s announcement makes no mention of how much this content costs in Ghost Coins or in real dollars. However, according to threads on the game’s official forums and the Steam Community Hub, the Assassin’s Creed class packs go as high as 9,000 Ghost Coins, or the equivalent of around $50. That’s pretty effed up if accurate.
