Today, Ubisoft announced that Ghost War, the new competitive mode update for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, will be available on October 10. Ghost War will be free for all players who own the base game and will receive regular content updates after launch.
In Ghost War, two groups of players will take part in a team deathmatch experience that builds on the tactical squad play from the main game, where strategy is equally as important as skill. Teams will choose from a roster of varied classes across three categories including Assault, Marksman and Support, fulfilling specific roles on the battlefield as they navigate large-scale open maps and take down their enemies. Using one of the twelve distinct classes, each with their own varied characteristics, weapons, perks and customisation options, players will engage with enemies across eight unique maps. Ghost War will also integrate new mechanics, including suppressing fire and sound markers, to create a strategic and intense team-based multiplayer mode.
The development team plans to bring regular post-launch updates to Ghost War in order to enrich the overall competitive experience. “We are excited to be continue to refine and expand Ghost War after its launch,” said Lucian Istrate, Lead Game Designer on Ghost War at Ubisoft Bucharest. “Expect more classes, more maps, and even new modes to be added in the future!”
