Ubi Soft laat in een persbericht aan de wereld weten dat de tweede uitbreiding voor Ghost Recon gold is. Het pas recentelijk aangekondigde Ghost Recon : Island Thunder brengt The Ghosts naar Cuba anno 2009.

Nieuw in de uitbreiding zijn o.a. helicopterdroppings, 12 nieuwe multiplayerwapens, 5 multiplayermaps en uiteraard een singleplayer campaign in de vorm van 8 nieuwe missies. The Ghosts, an elite team of U.S. Army Green Berets, are sent to Cuba in 2009 as part of a UN peacekeeping force to destroy the drug funded rebel forces and their mercenary leaders and secure the elections for a free Cuba. Ghost Recon: Island Thunder features eight new single-player missions in an all-new campaign set across the island of Cuba. The game includes five new dedicated multiplayer maps, twelve new multiplayer weapons-including the FN M240G and the MM-1 automatic grenade launcher-- and two new multiplayer game types. There are also new Cuban enemy vehicles, new allied vehicles and amazingly realistic insertions by helicopter. Ghost Recon takes the next step in battlefield realism with Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder.
