Ghost Recon Wildlands – Creating a Customizable Experience for PC Gamers

If you’re a dedicated PC gamer, you’ve come to expect certain things from your games. A high level of visual fidelity is a given if you’re rocking a high-end video card and a 4K monitor, but the best PC games also feature a level of flexibility and customization that lets you tailor the experience to your preferences and hardware. The developers of Ghost Recon Wildlands want you to know that they’re taking the PC version of the game seriously – so seriously, in fact, that they want to ensure the PC is the best way to experience the game’s lush landscapes and open-ended action. After gathering feedback from PC gamers during the game’s betas, they’ve revealed a list of ways that Ghost Recon Wildlands will take advantage of high-end hardware while still offering a solid experience on more modest machines.

On the visual front, the PC version of Ghost Recon Wildlands supports not just 4K resolutions, but ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratios, multiple monitors, and resolution scaling between 50% and 200%. There’s no framerate cap, and the game even features Ansel support, letting players with compatible Nvidia cards take dynamic, 360-degree screenshots. The game also features a full range of graphics options, letting players tweak everything from general presets to godrays and ambient occlusion, and kicks in a benchmark tool, VRAM gauge, and the ability to preview graphics-settings changes to help ensure you’re getting the best performance out of your system.

Ghost Recon Wildlands includes a number of other PC-exclusive features, including customizable controls, full keyboard and mouse support (including UI adaptation), multiplayer text chat for those not using headsets, and more. For a full rundown of features specific to the PC version, including specs and supported hardware, check out the full post on the official site.

Ghost Recon Wildlands is scheduled for release on March 7. For more information on the game, check out our previous coverage:

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands

Release date — March 7, 2017
Developer — Ubisoft Paris
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.

ESRB Rating: RP

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a work of fiction. Like similar Tom Clancy’s games from Ubisoft, the game takes place in a modern universe inspired by reality, but the characters, locations and stories are created solely for entertainment purposes. One of the reasons Bolivia was chosen as the background of this game was due to its magnificent landscapes and rich culture. While the game’s premise imagines a different reality than the one that exists in Bolivia today, we do hope that the in-game world comes close to representing the country’s beautiful topography, and that players enjoy exploring the diverse and open landscapes it moved us to create. Any resemblance to actual events or any real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
