Ubisoft has announced when PvP will finally hit Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.
While Ghost Recon Wildlands is a good co-op game where a team of four players goes up against the AI-controlled Santa Blanca Cartel. What was really missing from the game was the ability to hunt other players in a PvP mode. Well, that is finally coming to Wildlands later this fall in a free update.
Ghost War is Wildlands’ new PvP mode. Ghost War puts one team in the shoes of the Ghosts and other team as a squad of spec ops soldiers hoping to gain power in Bolvia. Players will choose from a variety of specialized classes, including Scout, Sniper, and Tank among many others. From there, both teams will be dropped into open-environment maps where they’ll have to use their knowledge and skills to survive and hunt down the enemy team.
“Our objective with Ghost War was to build upon the main game’s elements of co-op teamplay and open, tactical gameplay,” said Lead Game Designer Lucian Istrate. To expand the tactical toolset, the team has added a new suppression system that affects your vision while you’re under heavy fire, and implemented new sound markers to help players locate their enemies’ position. Istrate cautions that “all of these elements will make team play, communication, and strategic skills more crucial than ever.”
Players won’t have to wait too long to get their hands on Ghost War. A 4v4 team deathmatch open beta will take place this summer, and then the full mode will launch this fall as a free update. It is unknown what other modes will come with Ghost War.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
