The patch notes also included a strange line in the audio section: An unusual noise was heard near a ruined hut… Players immediately began to speculate that this was the beginning of a good old-fashioned Easter Egg hunt; and that does indeed seem to be the case. Here’s what they’ve discovered so far. Advertisement Advertisement Prior to Wildlands’ “Fallen Ghosts” DLC, Season Challenges were introduced to add new objectives for unlocking more gear. The sixth and final week of the Season 1 Challenges sent players searching for an abominable snowman, requiring them to locate five hints before summoning and killing the infamous El Yeti.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Final Story DLC Is Brutal And Fun

A second major expansion has arrived for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, one in which players will go from the hunters to the hunted. “Fallen Ghosts” went live May 30 for Season Pass holders, and will become available as a solo DLC purchase on June 6 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The expansion is set after the events of the main Ghost Recon: Wildlands storyline, where the Ghosts worked to dismantle the Santa Blanca cartel. Now the Ghosts are stranded in the Bolivian jungle and faced with more heavily armored soldiers and Covert Ops enemies equipped with digital cloaking devices. Seriously, these guys are tough. If you’re somehow emotionally attached to your character, you’ll be disappointed to find that Fallen Ghosts forces you to create a completely new level 30 character. This is good for new or low-level Wildlands players because the DLC is a brutal test, and you’ll need the skills unlocked to survive the 15 added missions and four new bosses. Nine new skills have also been added to aid your efforts in the enemy-filled jungle environment. You’ll want the new Reaction Marking skill, which will allow you to mark anyone who shoots at READ FULL STORY…

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…

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!
