It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen it, but I suppose that’s fitting of a project with “Ghost Recon” in its title. Since its debut at E3 in 2015, little (to nothing) has been seen of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands – until now.
Ubisoft debuted the game during their E3 conference last year to pretty hearty enthusiasm. And while the latest trailer kind of feels like more of the same, it’s still a pretty impressive more of the same. Ubisoft has touted Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands as having the largest open-world environment the company has ever created. And when you take a gander at all the locations scattered throughout the trailer, it’s easy to see why.
The game’s setting is Bolivia with your squad being tasked with infiltrating and destroying the local drug cartels there. In the trailer we see a plethora of gameplay styles. Short and long range fire fights, multiple forms of vehicular combat and travel, sky diving and parachuting, and drone recon tossed in for good measure.
It all looks good, and we’re certainly poised to see more of Ghost Recon: Wildlands when Ubisoft hits the E3 2016 stage on Monday, June 13th. For those interested, just below is the title’s official description, followed by the new trailer:
“The Santa Blanca drug cartel has transformed the beautiful South American country of Bolivia into a perilous narco-state, leading to lawlessness, fear, and rampant violence. The citizens of Bolivia have been plagued by the criminal influence of the cartel, but all hope is not lost. Now only the Ghosts, an elite US Special Forces team, can save the country from complete collapse.
Armed with their tactical prowess and the latest weapons technology, the Ghosts will have to go deep behind enemy lines to complete their most dangerous mission to date. They’ll have to annihilate the alliance between the corrupted government and the cartel before the evil rises above Bolivia to become a major threat across the globe.
Facing an almighty adversary in a massive, hostile environment, you will have to muster your strength, hone your skills, and sharpen your mettle to become a Ghost and take Bolivia back from its criminal tyrants.”
