Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This newest Ghost Recon takes the franchise in a new direction by being the first game in the series to feature an open world format. Deviating from a tried and true formula for a long running series does bring the risk of alienating long time fans, but Hardcore Gamer spend some time with this title and found the changes to be quite favorable.
“Developed by Ubisoft Paris, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a military shooter entirely playable in up to 4 player co-op or single-player from beginning to the end. Players have total freedom of choice to accomplish their missions how they want and watch as the world reacts to their actions. Players can choose to move quietly in the night, go in hot at dawn, or work together to execute a sync shot that takes out enemies in one fell swoop. Each choice has a consequence, and players must improvise or adapt their plans to ensure the completion and success of each mission.
In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, players will discover a fictionalized future Bolivia, a few years from now, in which players must take down the Santa Blanca drug cartel by any means necessary. Behind enemy lines, they will hunt down targets and discover intel, using any of the more than 60 vehicles available including cars, motorcycles and even helicopters that they can commandeer. To topple the cartel, players will have to fight their way to El Sueño, Santa Blanca’s ruthless leader, by breaking down the Santa Blanca Cartel’s operation piece by piece as they sever alliances between the drug lords and the corrupted government.
Fans looking to get a closer look at Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands and the Santa Blanca Cartel can watch Ubisoft’s live-action promotional content, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands: War Within the Cartel, available now on demand via Amazon Prime Video. War Within the Cartel takes viewers inside the inner workings of the Santa Blanca drug cartel, controlled by the revered yet ruthless leader, El Sueño. In the aftermath of an attack on their compound, the organization’s senior leadership (Head of Security – El Muro, Head of Production – El Yayo, Head of Trafficking – Nidia Flores and Head of Influence – El Cardenal) seeks out a traitor within their midst to exact deadly retribution. The action-packed story culminates in the events leading up to the beginning of the game as an elite Special Forces unit, the Ghosts, is called in to dismantle the cartel.”
