Ghost Recon Wildlands Now Available

Ghost Recon Wildlands’ depiction of Bolivia is vast, beautiful, and astoundingly diverse – and it’s been overrun by agents of the Santa Blanca drug cartel. In Ghost Recon Wildlands, you’ll join the Ghosts as part of an elite four-person commando team, and your mission is nothing less than to take down the country’s narco-oppressors. If you think you’re up to the challenge, you can jump into the game starting today.

Offering up a massive open world of forests, villages, mountains, salt flats, and more, Ghost Recon Wildlands cuts you loose to explore and destabilize the Santa Blanca however you see fit. Playing in co-op with up to four players, or solo with a squad of AI teammates, you’ll be able to stick together as a tight unit or strike out on your own in search of key intel to unlock new missions. At your disposal are more than 60 kinds of cars, boats, motorcycles, helicopters, and planes, as well as extensive weapon and customization options that let you mold your operator to fit your preferred play style.

Additionally, Twitch Prime members can get an edge over the Santa Blanca with the War Within The Cartel Pack, which comes with two patches, a Santa Blanca shirt and hat, an XP booster, and the Skorpion gun seen in the War Within The Cartel live-action film. (And if you’re not a Twitch Prime member, you can snag the bonuses by signing up for a free 30-day trial.)

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: 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.
