Ubisoft has unveiled all the details of Special Operation 4, the last free and major update for the second year of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands’ post-launch content.
The update contains a brand new PvE mode called Guerrilla. Guerrilla is a unique challenge that will test players’ endurance, skills, and tactics. It can be played either solo or co-operatively with up to four Ghosts.
Players will have to use all their skill to defends key locations against increasingly deadly waves of Cartel and Unidad members.
Each completed wave will give players the chance to purchase and upgrade weapons, skills, and attachments with resources scavenged from fallen foes. Choose wisely – strategy is essential.
Along with Guerrilla Mode, there’s also a whole host of new Ghost War PvP-focused content.
There’s a new Support class in the form of the Sapper, who can deploy specialized drones capable of launching ‘concussion’ mines. The concussion mines will drain players’ stamina and also slow down their rush.
There’s also two new PvP maps along with two new PvP events. Arms Race will cause players to spawn with only their pistols, forcing them to explore the world for superior arms. Danger Zone bombs players with ultrasonic blasts, meaning they’ll be forced to constantly move to survive.
Highly requested community features will also be making an appearance, including a time of day setting for the Solo Campaign Mode, a new bleeding notification in Ghost War, a compass HUD option to PvE, and the introduction of daily campaign challenges with increased rewards.
There’s also a new Heatmap view, which will allow players to see the most visited locations in the Wildlands and discover areas they’ve yet to explore.
The Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 pass offers 7-day early access to the new Ghost War class and the exclusive Active Duty Pack, starting tomorrow. All other players can access the new PvP class on March 6th. You can get the Year 2 pass here.
Special Operation 4 is due out on February 27th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
