Ubisoft is all set to release a new PvP game mode for its third-person shooter – Ghost Recon Wildlands. In addition, the publisher has also rolled out a new update which brings aiming and handling improvements to the game’s helicopters.
The new competitive game mode is called Ghost War, in which two teams of four go against one another in a deathmatch to stamp their authority in Bolivia after the demise of El Sueno’s Santa Blanca cartel.
In the new multiplayer mode, players will be able to try out different classes such as Sniper, Tank, and Scout, each of them with their own dedicated upgrades and personalized stats. Also, players will be able to choose from multiple classes. That said, Ubisoft is yet to announce what classes they would be, adding that more information will be available shortly.
“Our objective with Ghost War was to build upon the main game’s elements of co-op team play and open, tactical gameplay. All of these elements will make team play, communication, and strategic skills more crucial than ever,” said Lucian Istrate, lead game designer, in a post on the Ubisoft Blog.
Ghost War will be available as a free update this fall for anyone who owns either a physical or a digital copy of Ghost Recon Wildlands. While players can try out the new game mode in an open beta across the PS4, Xbox One, and PC which is expected to launch later this summer. However, Ubisoft is yet to announce specific release dates for both.
In addition, Ubisoft also announced a bunch of tweaks and updates for the game’s helicopters. Along with fixing several bugs, the new Title Update 6 also brings changes in the game’s helicopters control and aim. Ubisoft says these changes make flying helicopters easier, authentic, and seamless in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
To recall, Ubisoft released Ghost Recon Wildlands for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 7, 2017. In the game, a special American task force (Ghosts) are assigned to disrupt and eliminate a Mexican drug cartel who has a major influence over Bolivia’s government.
