Ghost Recon Wildlands – Ghost War PVP Mode Coming October 10

Ghost Recon Wildlands players looking to test their skills against human opponents can mark their calendars for October 10, the day that Ghost War brings 4v4 team deathmatch for free to all players who own the base game. At the start of each match, players will choose from among 12 soldier classes with distinct weapons and perks. Once they take to the field on one of the eight maps, they’ll need to coordinate with their teammates and take the fight to their foes. New mechanics including suppressing fire and sound markers will make cover positions and situational awareness an even more important part of the tactical landscape. For a look at some of the unique soldier classes for Ghost War, check out the video below:

October 10 is is just the start, as Ghost War will continue to expand and bring players new opportunities and challenges. According to Lucian Istrate, the lead game designer on Ghost War at Ubisoft Bucharest, players should “expect more classes, more maps, and even new modes to be added in the future!”

Ghost Recon Wildlands is available now on Xbox One, PC, and PS4. You can read more about Ghost War on the official site, and be sure to check out our previous Ghost Recon Wildlands coverage.

Ghost Recon Wildlands

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: M

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.
