'Ghost Recon Wildlands' (ALL) Free New Assignment Update Tomorrow - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 13, 2018 @ 12:04 p.m. PDT

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.


New Assignment, the new major free update for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, will be available on next-gen platforms and Windows PC tomorrow, March 14th.

“We want to thank players for their continuous support and feedback during its first year,” said Nouredine Abboud, Senior Producer. “We have much more to come and cannot wait to share more information with you!”

New Assignment continues to expand the Ghost War experience by adding three new classes and wraps up the total of six additional classes planned to be introduced within the span of the Ghost War roadmap. Available in all PvP modes, the new classes introduced in New Assignment are:

  • The Trapper: an expert shooter equipped with a semi-automatic sniper rifle with the ability to mark downed enemies and deploy remote KO-gas traps to stun and damage enemies.
  • The Guerilla: a support-class specialized in diversion tactics and equipped with a smoke-grenade launcher drone.
  • The Stalker: a sharpshooter specialized in silently dispatching her enemies thanks to her special abilities.

With 18 diverse classes to choose from, players will have more tactical options and ways to approach situations on the Ghost War battlefield than ever.

New Assignment will also introduce two new maps, “Refinery” and “Cliffside,” available for the Extraction mode exclusively, as well as a series of quality of life and gameplay updates addressing player feedback for both PvP and PvE modes. A new map-voting tool will notably allow players to vote for one of three possible Ghost War maps, each from a different game mode, at the start of every new PvP Quickplay and Ranked match.

The new maps and gameplay updates will be available free and simultaneously to all players. Season Pass and Ghost War Pass owners will immediately unlock the three new classes with an exclusive seven-day early access, while other players will be able to unlock classes with Prestige credits earned through progression or to purchase them via the in-game store. These classes round off the PvP content included in the Season Pass and Ghost War Pass offers.

Following the release of New Assignment, Ghost War Updates 5 and 6 will merge into a single update planned for early April.

    • Engage all your missions in whatever order and manner suits you: stealth, distraction, and tactical or frontal assault always remain possible. Use the new iconic drones to recon the toughest terrains and to tag enemy outposts, or transform them into destructive weapons. Make difficult but critical choices: sabotage, interrogation, kidnapping, and assassination are but a few of the options available for you to reach your objectives.
    • Create your very own ghost thanks to multiple customization options and upgrade your character with the experience and loot you gather on the battleground.
  • Take Down the Santa Blanca Cartel
    • The Santa Blanca cartel and its infamous leader, El Sueño, are the most powerful, treacherous, and imposing foes the Ghosts have ever faced.
    • Your mission is to take the cartel down and put an end to their rule of terror by any means necessary: destroy their production facilities, cut off their trafficking routes, dismantle their nfluence network and bring Santa Blanca's sicarios down to their knees.
    • The world will react differently to each of your choices: unexpected opportunities and threats could arise from any situation.
