July 6th Title Update [Updated July 11th]
Ubisoft and their development studios are entirely focused on improving the game experience, supporting the title and listening to the all of your feedback.
There are multiple updates planned over the life of the game and we’re happy to announce that a new Title Update is being delivered for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.
Please insure your console is connected to the Internet when you launch Ghost Recon Future Soldier; a message will then pop up to inform you that a game update is available for you to download and install. This Title Update includes some very important changes that we would like to highlight. Except where specifically noted, changes are for both X360 and PS3.
The list of changes below is not all inclusive.

- Fixed an issue that would cause the PS3 jewel buttons to disappear from the firing range when using PS Move.
- Fixed an issue with incorrect challenge timers.
The team is also working hard to improve the game experience on the PC version; a specific title update for the PC will be released later this week to address input compatibility issues. Other title updates will follow as soon as they are thoroughly tested.
