Ghost Recon: Wildlands showcases first gameplay, gets release date

Ubisoft kicked off their E3 2016 press conference with a first proper look at their big announcement that capped off last year’s E3 conference; The gameplay debut of Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

Ubisoft’s open-world third-person shooter brings an all-new team of Ghosts to the hostile wilderness of Bolivia, where they are pitted against an evil force of narcotics kingpins that are oppressing the country. Ubisoft’s gameplay demo showed the new Ghosts collaborating to take down an infamous cook for the drug cartel, with Ubisoft also demonstrating seamless four-player co-op that allows a squad of players to team up and take on missions together, even if the campaign of Ghost Recon: Wildlands is fully playable solo, which will have your squadmates controlled by the A.I.GRW - Gameplay 1

Ubisoft promises that Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be their biggest open-world game to date, and the Bolivian landscape does seem suitably huge, throwing the restraints off of Ghost Recon and fully unleashing the franchise that the late Tom Clancy built on a playground of missions and criminals that players can take on at their leisure, with military precision. Players can opt to be more stealthy or more aggressive, depending on their play style, though the grounded gameplay definitely encourages a certain degree of tactical discretion. That said though, there will be no shortage of action, which was deftly demonstrated with a vehicle chase that unfolds when the cook attempts to flee, allowing players to man available vehicles from big rigs to motorbikes in order to accomplish their mission.

Finally, players were told when they can get their hands on Ghost Recon: Wildlands at the end of the demo. The game arrives for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 7th, 2017.
