I am missing a lot of action in the gaming scene. I haven’t yet got a PlayStation 4, a Nintendo Switch, or a better gaming PC. And yet, all these amazing games are coming out really fast. When Sony launched the PS4 a few years back, I was pretty cool with it, since, hey, it just came out, and there won’t be any really good games out yet. But now is that time, when all the good stuff are hitting the market: Dark Souls 3, The Witcher 3, Persona 5, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, among other things. Then newer games just came out, “Injustice 2,” “The Surge,” and the improved “Mario Kart 8: Deluxe.”

Ah man. Anyway, Ubisoft is cooking up something new for “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands.”

The full press release follows:

HUNTERS BECOME THE HUNTED IN TOM CLANCY’S GHOST RECON WILDLANDS’ SECOND EXPANSION, FALLEN GHOSTS, COMING MAY 31, 2017

Ubisoft recently announced that the second Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands expansion, Fallen Ghosts, will be available to season pass owners simultaneously on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC on May 31, 2017. The expansion will release for individual purchase for all players a week later, on June 6, 2017 for the suggested retail price of $14.99.

Fallen Ghosts takes place after the fall of the Santa Blanca Cartel. With Unidad’s military force unable to maintain control over Bolivia, the country is in a state of civil war. To help restore order, the Unidad enlists cartel members, veterans, mercenaries and criminals from various nearby countries as volunteers. Together, they form a new brutal special unit: Los Extranjeros, which is ordered to track and eliminate all American agents.

In this chaotic situation, the Ghosts have one last mission: evacuate the last CIA members and American civilians remaining in the country. Shot down enroute to their mission, the Ghosts find themselves in the middle of the jungle, without external support, facing deadly enemies equipped with the latest gear and technology. These dangerous elite soldiers are separated into four distinct classes:

–      Armored: Equipped with heavy bulletproof plates, they are especially threatening in close combat.

–      Elite Sniper: Geared up with an advanced movement detector, these Elite Sniper are able to notice far away targets and never miss their shot.

–      Jammer: With a jamming antenna directly in their backpack, they are able to neutralize drones and interfere with all electronic equipment.

–      Covert Ops: Equipped with a new prototype cloaking device that makes them almost invisible and a powerful crossbow, they give a new meaning to the word “Ghost.”

GRW_DLC_FALLENGHOSTS_C_05152017_6pm_CEST_1494846535 The Fallen Ghosts campaign will feature 15 new missions in which players will have to take down four new bosses located in three different regions. In the expansion, players will start with a new character at level 30 and equipped with all of the main game skills. The level cap will increase from 30 to 35, and players will be able to unlock nine new skills including physical, weapon and drones skills.

Fallen Ghosts also features six exclusive new weapons ranging from new assaults rifles, sniper rifles and a crossbow that can be equipped with explosive arrows.

Finally, the more hardcore players will be pleased to know that the advanced and expert difficulties have been tweaked to offer an even higher challenge. By turning the HUD off players will get the most extreme and tactical experience possible in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, players 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 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 have to fight their way to El Sueño, Santa Blanca’s ruthless leader, by breaking down the Santa Blanca drug cartel’s operation piece by piece as they sever alliances between the drug lords and the corrupted government. A PvP mode for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be available in the coming months.

Ghost Recon Wildlands: Narco Road DLC

I’ve been pals with a few Ubisoft employees since 2015 and they’ve been kind enough to send me Ubisoft-related news materials for the broadsheet I write for, along with the gaming website I’ve cofounder. Figured it won’t cause any harm to post the press release here as well. 

I’ve never played “Ghost Recon: Wildlands” yet, but a friend of mine had claimed it was pretty good. She gave it an 8/10 out of her personal rating chart and that’s good enough for me.

Press release follows:

GO UNDERCOVER IN TOM CLANCY’S GHOST RECON WILDLANDS FIRST EXPANSION, NARCO ROAD, COMING APRIL 18 

Ubisoft announced that the first Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands expansion, Narco Road, will be available to season pass owners simultaneously across all platforms on April 18. Season pass owners will have access to Narco Road one week before it releases as a stand-alone expansion on April 25.

Narco Road tasks players with infiltrating three gangs of smugglers led by the elusive El Invisible. Players will have to work their way up the ranks and earn the trust of the mysterious leader if they have any hope of bringing him to justice. Reaching El Invisible will require gaining the trust of three new charismatic bosses:

– Eddie Escovado: The self-proclaimed social media star and adrenaline-addicted leader of the Kamikazes gang.

– Arturo Rey: The mysterious leader of the Death Riders, a gang of riders who worship Santa Muerte.

– Tonio Mateos: The arrogant leader of the Jinetes Locos, a gang specializing in racing muscle cars.

To earn the respect of these bosses, players will complete more than 15 fast-paced campaign missions. In addition to these new story missions, four new types of side missions and racing challenges offer adrenaline-fueled action. Completing these activities will earn players fame and followers. The more followers a player acquires, the more interest they will get from the gang bosses, and the closer they will come to bringing down El Invisible.

Narco Road also features four exclusive outfits, nine new weapons and four new vehicle types. Traverse the massive Bolivian map in huge monster trucks, nitro-boosted muscle cars, powerful motorcycles and aerobatic planes. 

Additionally, all players will gain access to a new game update launching April 12 on consoles and April 14 on Windows PC. The update will introduce weekly live seasons challenges in the form of solo, co-op and community tasks starting April 18. Players who complete these challenges will be rewarded with up to three unique rewards per week. Challenges will be available through multiple seasons, each of them lasting six weeks and featuring a specific theme. In the first season, The Rise and Fall of Unidad, players gather intel on Unidad’s operations and combat the threat to the country.

In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, players 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 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 have to fight their way to El Sueño, Santa Blanca’s ruthless leader, by breaking down the Santa Blanca drug cartel’s operation piece by piece as they sever alliances between the drug lords and the corrupted government. A second expansion for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, Fallen Ghosts, will be available soon, as well as an all-new PvP mode in the coming months.
