Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is Ubisoft's new open-world bang bang shoot stuff game

New, 12 comments


Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands closed the Ubisoft E3 2015 press event. Planted in a franchise within a franchise, Wildlands is an open-world game that lets players role-play as US Special Forces and kill people who have presumably done bad stuff.

In gameplay footage, characters pilot boats, motorcycles, helicopters, and all-terrain vehicles across a variety of settings including mountains, swamps, and villages. Some Ghost Recon staples appear, namely the emphasis on reconnaissance. Characters tag potential enemies, monitor villains with a sniper rifle, and unleash a tactical drone.

There are also lots of weapons, which are used to destroy scenery and bodies.

According to the YouTube description, the player is part of a US Special Forces team sent into not-so-distant-future Bolivia to "wreak havoc and takedown [a drug cartel]." At the end of the trailer, the game hints at a massive-multiplayer element, highlighting player avatars across the game's map. The view then pulls out further, highlighting South America, Europe, and North America. We hope to see the game this week and learn just how big Wildlands open-world is.
