Tom Clancy


Bill Donovan

The novelist Thomas Clancy Jr is not only known for his books but also his gaming franchise. He was born in Maryland, on April 1947, and had a wife and 5 kids. In October of 2013, at age 66, he died in Maryland but his legacy lives on. Seventeen of his novels became bestsellers.
Tom Clancy’s first game was The Hunt For Red October which came out around 1987. It was a submarine simulation based on the novel named the same.

From 2015 to 2016 the Tom Clancy game franchise is coming out with three big games. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege was the first of the three coming out December 2015.
This is a first person tactical shooter game for online players. Teams of five special operators take turns defending and attacking in 3 different strategic game modes including TDM (team deathmatch) included in all 3 game modes.

It is the “”Best cooperative game I’ve ever played” says Frank Rodrigues. Tom Clancy’s RSS is a very cooperative game and is better with friends to play with.

The Next game that came out was Tom Clancy’s The Division on March 8. It was an instant success but is starting to down trend over time due to hackers and loss of interest. The game itself is an on or offline free world game that can be played with or without friends. There is an outbreak so bad that you and your special forces are the only ones who can’t fix the world and stop the people taking advantage of the situation. “It was fun in the beginning but it kinda repeats itself as you play,” says Curtis Moore.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be the last of the three to come out in 2017. This is also a third person shooter in Brazil fighting as mercenaries against the drug cartel open world. This can be played with or friends as well, but up to about 4 people.

“I love the freedom to do whatever we want in whatever order” says Lukas Efthmou. Wildlands has a lot of people working on the game day and night to make it as great as possible.

The Tom Clancy game franchise has stepped up the game quality lately and is becoming more successful. The future of the Tom Clancy games are something I and a lot of others look forward to for a while.
