Future Ghost Recon Wildlands Updates Will Increase Level Cap, Add New Game Mode

Fallen Ghosts, the last piece of DLC included in the Season Pass of Ghost Recon Wildlands is set to launch in just a few days and the game’s developers recently posted a community Q&A where they not only answered quite a number of questions from the community but they also announced that a new game mode will be coming to the game’s next update in the summer. According to the announcement, the new game mode will not only increase the difficulty of the game but it will also allow players to surpass the current level 30 limit. The developers also announced that the new game mode will include new rewards as well. Additionally, the developers also announced that more information on the much-anticipated PVP mode for Ghost Recon Wildlands will be announced during the summer. It’s been previously announced that the game’s PVP mode will feature 4v4 battles between players. With E3 right around the corner, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if they were planning to announce more details on both the new game mode as well as the PVP mode at the event. If so, we’ll only have to wait a few more weeks to hear more READ…

Sam Fisher Would Not Approve Of Ghost Recon’s Night Vision Goggles

Last night I decided to purchase a custom Splinter Cell outfit for Ghost Recon: Wildlands. I mostly bought it because of the cool night vision goggles. As you make your way through Wildlands’ Bolivian countryside, you can choose to switch on night vision. Of course you can; it’s a Tom Clancy game. With the press of a button, everything goes green and you can see in the dark. However, your character won’t actually put on night vision goggles. They’re not even wearing night vision goggles in the first place. Their eyes will remain uncovered, even as the world becomes green-tinted. It may seem like an oversight in a game as gear-obsessed as this one, but the developers have evidently decided not to mess up your personalized outfit and headgear by dropping some chunky goggles over your face. Fair enough. Advertisement In the in-game store, you can buy a whole bunch of stuff to customize or improve your character. You can unlock all the guns in the game, if you want, or buy a booster to level your character up faster. You can also buy any of a few custom outfits based on other Ubisoft games. You can get 1,700 store…

Ghost Recon Wildlands: Next Beta Includes New Province, Acclaimed Writers Working on Narrative

[embedded content] Ubisoft has sent over an email to Ghost Recon Wildlands‘ closed beta participants, announcing that the game’s next open beta will include a new province from its open world. We don’t have a set date for the upcoming test but VG247 reports that given Ubisoft’s recent pattern with some of its other major releases, it’ll likely happen the weekend before launch. In other Ghost Recon news, the developer announced via a press release that Wildlands‘ narrative is being penned by acclaimed writers Don Winslow (The Cartel) and Shane Salerno (Avatar sequels). While Winslow has best-selling novels under his belt, Salerno is currently working with James Cameron on sequels to the critically-acclaimed Avatar. “I’ve written about drug cartels for more than twenty years and together with my writing partner Shane Salerno have brought that knowledge to the story, scenes, characters and dialogue found in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands,” said Winslow. “I’ve been a Tom Clancy fan ever since I first read The Hunt For Red October,” added Salerno. “It was a real thrill to work on this game with the team at Ubisoft, who are incredibly passionate and committed to delivering the best gaming experience possible for fans.” Ghost…

Some Quick Thoughts On The Ghost Recon Wildlands Beta

Last weekend Ubisoft ran a closed beta for their upcoming open-world tangos ’n tactics game Ghost Recon Wildlands. I spent a few hours playing and am here to tell you what I thought. Advertisement Wildlands is the first proper game in the Ghost Recon series since 2012’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which I actually reviewed, not that I entirely remember writing that review. (Life comes at you fast, man.) It’s another in Ubisoft’s “Tom Clancy’s” line of real-world military tactics/fetish games that include Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six and most recently, The Division. It’s an open-world game set in Bolivia, and it can be played solo or in co-op with up to three of your friends. You play as elite U.S. operatives dispatched on an off-the-books clandestine campaign against a notorious collection of South American drug cartels. Advertisement Let’s get into it. The beta region is one of like, six thousand in the main game. Just kidding, there are actually 21. The map is big as hell. The beta comprised one region of the full map, and it was large.

12 Minutes of Ghost Recon Wildlands Gameplay Demos Stealth

[embedded content] In a press release, Ubisoft has sent out a new Ghost Recon Wildlands gameplay video and it focuses on stealth. While it’s the same gameplay that was shown at E3, this time, Ubisoft demos how the same level can be completed by a different method. In Ghost Recon Wildlands, you have the freedom to use tactics that suit the way you want complete your missions. To help illustrate that freedom, the latest co-op walkthrough presents a nighttime variation of the El Pozolero mission showcased at E3, giving the Ghosts an opportunity to utilize stealth under the cover of darkness and stormy weather. The walkthrough also highlights how important it is to observe your surroundings and see what might give you a tactical advantage, whether it’s hijacking an enemy truck to sneak your way into an enemy-controlled compound, or taking out a power generator to limit the Santa Blanca cartel’s security capabilities. In development by Ubisoft Paris for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Ghost Recon Wildlands is scheduled for release in March 7, 2017. [Source: Ubisoft Blog] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!
