Ghost Recon Wildlands – Get to Know the Ghosts in a New Novel

Taking down the Santa Blanca cartel in Ghost Recon Wildlands will be no simple task for the elite team of U.S. Special Forces operators known as the Ghosts, but this isn’t their first rodeo. In the new novel, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands: Dark Waters by Richard Dansky, you can not only read about a dangerous mission from the squad’s past, but also learn how they first came together as a team. The setting is the Amazonian jungle, and Nomad, Weaver, Holt, and Midas have been sent in to rescue American citizens held hostage by renegade Venezuelan soldiers. As you learn more about each operative and their backstories, you’ll get a better picture for the characters you’ll play as and alongside in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

The author, Richard Dansky, is the central Clancy writer for Red Storm Entertainment/Ubisoft, and he draws on his deep knowledge of the Clancy universe to bring the Ghosts to life. Dark Waters will be available in eBook formats and in paperback on March 7, the same day that Ghost Recon Wildlands launches for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

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.
