Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 on PC will release on March 30, Ubisoft has confirmed with us this afternoon, while also handing over a new screenshot from the sequel. The new in-game image - which you can see over right - is entitled 'The Dam' and reveals the "much more impressive explosions" in the sequel made possible by engine development, we're reliably informed. Pass mince pies over it to see what you think.

GRIN, developer of the PC version of GRAW 2, has taken the knife to the tactical-shooter-powering tech you see, upgrading physics and effects and giving the graphics a bit of a polish in general.

And it's not just the engine that's been revamped. The sequel features an improved tactical map, HUD and order system, reworked team-mate AI that introduces new team strategies and a revamped Cross-Com communication system allowing for new tactics and additional support in the field (via the un-manned ground drone 'M.U.L.E.' with its mobile cover and weapon station).

As with GRAW, the PC version of Advanced Warfighter 2 has been tailored to the platform - Ubisoft describes it as "an even more tactical PC tailored game" - although the sequel's story is identical to that featuring in the console iterations of the title.

Ubisoft gives us the scoop on the plotline: "You are the Soldier of the Future 2.0. All systems have been upgraded to give you more power and control on the battlefield. Following the failure of the "coup d'etat" in Mexico City Mexican rebels have gathered their remaining forces along the US border. Lead your team of elite Special Forces for the first time on US soil - straddling the border between Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas.

"The Ghosts have less than 72 hours to stop a nuclear attack. You are the last line of defense and must do what it takes to be victorious."
