Ubisoft officially begins to wind down the second year of free post-launch content for Ghost Recon wildlands with Special Operation 4, which is now available as a free update for the game.
Today’s update isn’t going to be a tiny one by any means. The game features two new pieces of content. One comes in the PvE aspect called ‘Guerrilla’, a horde mode that will put the Ghosts’ and their skills to the test. Those willing to brave unimaginable odds, can do so, putting their endurance, their skills, and their tactical capabilities to the test.
The mode is welcoming to both solo and squads, allowing them to defend key locations as increasingly difficult waves of Cartel and Unidad forces. As each wave comes to an end, Ghosts will be given a chance to purchase and upgrade their skills, their weapons, and attachments with resources they’ve earned by eliminating enemy forces. But keep in mind, each choice you make will be impactful, each will require strategy, and each will be essential in order for Ghosts to overcome the challenges they will face.
Along with the PvE content comes some PvP-focused content for those that enjoy diving into the Ghost War itself. If you are one such person, you’ll be excited to hear that a new Support class has been launched – the Sapper. The new class allows players to use a specialized drone that shoots “concussion” mines, allowing Ghosts to drain stamina from their opponents, allowing you to slow them, and even slow down their rush.
Along with the new class comes two new PvP events, two new maps, and plenty of options to enjoy. Want to know what they are? Here you go:
- Arms Race: Players spawn with only their pistols and are forced explore the map for better weapons.
- Danger Zone: Players are periodically bombed with ultrasonic blasts, forcing them to always be on the move.
Much like the previous updates that have launched over the course of the Year 2 season, Ubisoft has confirmed that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will continue to receive community-requested features, improvements, including time of day setting for the Solo Campaign Mode, a new bleeding notification in Ghost War, and even the addition of a compass HUD option for PvE.
Along with some of the much-needed features to be added or have been added, comes the highly requested Heatmap view, which allows players to see the most visited locations int he Wildlands themselves, allowing them to discover places they may have never seen before while exploring the jungles, cities, and mountains around them.
Additionally, you can purchase The Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 Pass, which will allow for players to get seven-day early access to all new Ghost War classes, along with an exclusive Active Duty pack. Those looking to get their hands on it can purchase it digitally for $29.99..
