'Ghost Recon Wildlands' (ALL) Celebrates 30th Anniversary Of Predator Movie With New Content - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 13, 2017 @ 9:23 a.m. PST

Set a few years from now, Ghost Recon Wildlands lets you lead a four-player team of Ghosts on a covert mission to eliminate the Santa Blanca drug cartel.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is a military shooter set in a massive, dangerous, and responsive open world that you can play entirely solo or in four-player co-op.

Bolivia, a few years from now: this beautiful South American country has become the largest cocaine producer in the world. The influential and vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel has turned the country into a narco-state, leading to lawlessness, fear, injustice, and violence. The cartel is on track to becoming a major underworld power and global threat.

An all-out war is not the answer. A surgical, stealthy, lethal approach is the only way to stop the disease at its source. The Ghosts, an elite US Special Forces team, are sent behind enemy lines to wreak havoc, destabilize, and eventually break the alliance between the cartel and the corrupted government.

Facing an almighty enemy in a massive and hostile environment, the Ghosts will need to make critical moral choices and engage in tough battles to complete their mission – their grittiest and most dangerous operation to date.


Jungle Storm, the second major free update for Ghost Recon Wildlands Ghost War PvP, will release on all available platforms on December 14.

Ubisoft announced a partnership with FoxNext Games that will bring exclusive Predator content to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands with the release of the Jungle Storm update. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the original Predator movie, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands introduces a wealth of exclusive Predator content to the main game and Ghost War PvP modes:

  • FREE PREDATOR SPECIAL CHALLENGE: Starting December 14 until early January, all players of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands will be able to face the Predator in the game’s ultimate hunt. This new Special Challenge is playable solo or in up to four-player co-op is the most difficult fight of all.
  • PREDATOR CUSTOMIZATION ITEMS: Upon defeating the Predator, players will be rewarded with exclusive items such as the Predator mask with a new, exclusive Predator vision. In addition to rewards for completing the challenge, players can further customize and arm their Ghosts with the Predator Pack, which includes 15 new customization items, weapons and an exclusive close combat move, to recreate some of the most memorable characters from the original movie.
  • PREDATOR INSPIRED GHOST WAR PVP CLASS: The new Ghost War class inspired by main character Dutch from the original Predator movie will allow offensive players to engage in Battle Rage mode, a new alternative to create strategies and tactics on the PvP battleground. Ghost War players will be able to access the new class through the Ghost War Pass or the Season Pass, or by using their Prestige Points directly.

“At Ubisoft Paris, we have been fans of the Predator movie for a long time and are thrilled to bring such an iconic character to our game,” said Nouredine Abboud, senior producer at Ubisoft. “The challenge is full of references to the original Predator movie and we cannot wait to see the reaction of our players!”

“The Predator is a perfect fit for the Bolivian jungle of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, and fits flawlessly within the tense and tactical gameplay of the franchise from Ubisoft,” said Rick Phillips, president of FoxNext Games.

Jungle Storm will bring new PvP content to the game, including:

  • Two new classes available in all PvP modes. These include the Pathfinder, a stealthy Ghost equipped with a deadly crossbow who is unmarkable by drones, as well as another new class that will be revealed prior to the launch of the update on December 14.
  • Ranked play, which will allow players and their squad to compete against others to reach the highest ranks.
  • A new game mode called Extraction with exclusive maps.
  • New maps for the elimination and uplink game modes.

In addition, Jungle Storm will introduce new maps for the Elimination and Uplink modes, as well new weapons and gameplay updates for both PvP and PvE modes. Those eager to learn about the new changes can tune into the Ghost Recon Wildlands livestream on December 13 at 9:00 am PST.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Ghost War allows players to live the ultimate co-op experience in 4-versus-4 modes. Featuring a growing roster of classes, maps and modes, Ghost War focuses on teamwork, strategy and tensed tactical engagements.

Keeping in line with the goal of its development schedule, Ghost War will continue to grow over the following months with the release of several free content updates including new classes, new modes and maps, as well as gameplay balancing adjustments. All new modes, new maps and gameplay updates will always be free and available simultaneously to all players. Season Pass and Ghost War Pass owners will immediately unlock all new classes with an exclusive seven-day early access, while other players will be able to unlock them with Prestige credits earned through progression or to purchase them on the in-game store.
