Ubisoft announced Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands during their E3 conference. Wildlands is the latest in the military shooter Ghost Recon series. It will feature a massive open world that you can play cooperatively with up to three friends.
“[Wildlands] has beautiful environments set across a variety of different ecosystems that will challenge and influence your gameplay at every step of the way,” announced Dominic Butler, Lead Designer. “All of this takes place in the largest action-adventure open-world Ubisoft has ever done.” Considering how massive some of the Assassin’s Creed games have been, this is an intriguing bullet point.
The world of Wildlands takes place in near-future Bolivia. The home of the cocoa leaf has been taken over by a ruthless Mexican drug cartel. Their leader El Sueño narrates the cinematic trailer above.
We then saw a full gameplay demo of a squad of Ghosts on a mission. They worked together to infiltrate a compound and extract a target. Players can choose how to tackle each mission, and what roles or tactics they want to use. The demo ended in an exciting vehicular chase with motorcycles, cars, and a helicopter. Ubisoft promises a reactive world that responds to your squad’s chosen tactics. The terms “open-world” and “co-op” have me very interested in Wildlands.
Ghost Recon Wildlands will be released on March 7, 2017 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
