Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is my Kind of Adventure
There is nothing like a good military title that pits you against not only enemies but the environment itself. The thing about these military games that got me into them wasn’t the idea of going out and killing all enemies forces, but to get a better understanding and respect for the real soldiers that do their thing as they enlist. They go to these other countries and brave unknown territories to fight, risking their lives for their country. These games are amazing and filled with fantastic stories which make them better being that they are roughly fictional or inspired scripts. In that let’s check out the breakdown trailer explaining what you will go through as a Ghost.
Developed by Ubisoft Paris, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is the first military shooter set in a massive and responsive open-world, entirely playable in single-player or up to four-player co-op. Players will discover Bolivia a few years from now, a country transformed by the vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel into a narco-state.
Sent behind enemy lines, the Ghosts will have to cripple the Santa Blanca cartel’s operation, breaking alliances between the drug lords and the corrupt government, and saving the Bolivian population from the cruelty of El Sueño, Santa Blanca’s ruthless leader. To do so, players will have total freedom of choice to complete missions how they choose and watch as the world reacts to their actions.
“As part of the Tom Clancy franchise, authenticity is one of the key pillars which will bring the Wildlands to life in our latest installment in the franchise,” said Eric Couzian, Creative Director on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. “Our goal has been to build the Ghosts as credible Spec Ops, so players have a range of options in facing not only the deadly cartels, but also the roughness of the multifaceted Bolivian landscape. Ghosts are survivors and hunters, they can blend in all sorts of environments, leaving no trace except in the heads of their terrified enemies. We want players to feel this power.”
I have been a Ghost Recon player since the first Ghost Recon on the Xbox 360 and the one thing I noticed as a military shooter is the graphic effects of the games. Ubisoft has done well in giving us gamers a jaw dropping, action packed and tough story experience. This time around being in Bolivia and taking on a new force with amazing new tech. It should be an interesting adventure as this new team of Ghost tackle a new evil.

This includes the Gold Edition alongside the Ghost’s Audio Headset replica, a fully functional headset for PlayStation 4, Xbox One* and PC. Last but not least, the Collector’s Case also contains a Santa Blanca Cartel Skull, an in-game map of Bolivia, the original soundtrack of the game, a Bolivian carrying pouch, and 3 postcards of Bolivia.
if you pre-order the game you will be granted access to “The Peruvian Connection”, which is a bonus mission where you and the Ghost travel to the high mountains of Bolivia to break the alliance between the Santa Blanca and the Peruvian Cartels. Sounds exciting no?
