Ghost Recon Wildlands gameplay offers options, from stealth to mayhem
GamesRadar+ got a chance to play several missions of Ghost Recon Wildlands. The experience highlighted the type of team cooperation that you’ll need to get the most out of the game. TL;DR - Be ready to get very, very vocal.
Your squad’s mission is to take down the Santa Barbara cartel, which is running this fictionalized South American country with a tight fist and an itchy trigger finger. As you might assume, dismantling this well-entrenched cartel will take a lot of time and different types of missions. There are enemy outposts that need liberation, key targets to assassinate or interrogate, and plenty of other ways to interrupt the group’s nefarious doings.
Player choice has become a hallmark of open-world games these days, and Wildlands is no exception. For example, you'll be able to side with local rebels to help out in battles against more powerful factions within the Santa Blanca cartel. Or you can try and instigate in-fighting within the cartel itself, by manipulating information. Or you can create distractions in one place to help you sneak in and complete primary objectives with greater ease. These choices will have an impact on the region and its social orders, so think carefully about when you want to play it stealthy and when to run in guns blazing.
Ghost Recon Wildlands multiplayer: Play with people. Or don't!
Ubisoft has long been exploring the idea of players dropping in and out of each other’s games, and that’s carrying through into Ghost Recon Wildlands. The entire campaign can be done as a co-op experience with two to four players. (If you opt to play solo, your teammates will be AI-controlled minions that you can order around).
After the game’s E3 presentation showed off the potential for making mayhem with your friends, Ubisoft’s latest video release is a 20 minute clip of solo play. There’s a command wheel for giving direct orders to your AI squad members so they don’t accidentally blow your stealthy approach or wander directly into enemy sights. Lead game designer Dominic Butler explains that the AI characters will also adapt their responses to your own style of play. The video also shows off some of the many options Ghost Recon promises for customization and the game’s lush jungle setting.
The multiplayer approach seems most likely to deliver on memorable moments. GamesRadar’s Leon Hurley got a chance to play several missions during E3 2016, and found himself occasionally yelling at his colleagues when the carefully laid plans went pear-shaped.
Ghost Recon Wildlands’ characters and customization options make things personal
The most recent updates from Ubisoft have been all about customizing your Ghosts. Appearances can be altered to include beards or bandanas. Just about every detail of your appearance and gear can be tweaked, so you can role-play yourself or create the alter ego of your dreams. And of course, weapon loadouts can also be carefully curated to your taste.
Ubisoft also released introductions to the base characters that you can work with in your squad when opting to play solo. Nice to meet your minions in advance.
