Announced last year at E3, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is the latest game in the Ghost Recon Franchise. In this installment, players are tasked with taking down a powerful cartel in the South American country of Bolivia. Ghost Recon games have focused heavily on cooperation and stealth, and Wildands is no exception. However, unlike previous installments in the series, Wildlands is played in an open world sandbox that Ubisoft claims is the largest it has ever made.
From mountain peaks to swamps and deserts, the trailer highlights the harsh and varied landscapes of Bolivia. It also showcases the expansive vehicle gameplay: players will use motorbikes, dune buggies, and ATVs to traverse the harsh environments. Furthermore, the narrator states: “We are judges, deciding who will live, and who will die.” This possibly hints at player choices when it comes to the persecution of cartel leaders.
All things considered, Wildlands is shaping up to be an exciting change in pace for the Ghost Recon franchise. Although Ubisoft has yet to declare an official release date, the game’s Steam page lists December 31st, more likely a placeholder until more information is provided. More information will be revealed at E3, and Gamer Professionals will be covering it, so stay tuned.
Speculations aside, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is currently available on the Microsoft Store for $59.99 USD.
