Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands to pay homage to Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

As part of its Special Operations 3 post-launch content, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will pay homage to its predecessor, that being Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. A game that doesn’t get enough credit for being as good as it was, at least in terms of single player content.

Wildlands will do this through a two-part special mission, which will feature ‘iconic’ characters Scott Mitchell and John Kozak. This content will be part of Wildlands‘ main campaign, but some things will carry over to its PVP mode. You can look forward to playing it starting tomorrow, December 11th.

For more information, check out the following, which we borrowed from the game’s latest press release:

Exclusive Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier–themed content will be introduced to the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands main campaign and PvP mode, including two new Future Soldier–inspired Ghost War PvP classes and a PvE mission, Operation Silent Spade. In Operation Silent Spade, Ghost Leader Scott Mitchell calls on Nomad and his team to help rookie John Kozak investigate a plot that links the Santa Blanca Cartel to a nuclear threat. The special challenge is playable solo or with up to four players in co-op.

Upon completing Operation Silent Spade, players will be rewarded with the Optical Camo Backpack, perfect for a stealth approach. In addition to the rewards for completing the challenge, players can further customize and arm their Ghosts with the Silent Spade Pack, which includes a weapon and new customization items.

Special Operation 3 will also bring two new Ghost War PvP classes, Vanguard and Sharpshooter, inspired by Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier characters. Vanguard uses sensor grenades to uncover and highlight hidden enemies in the area of effect to his team, while Sharpshooter charges his shots by using his Long Range Specialist ability, which at a full charge enables him to negate the effects of sway and bullet drop. In addition to two new classes, this update will also contain two new PvP maps, Lithium Mine and Outskirts.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 Pass offers seven-day early access to the two new Ghost War classes starting December 11, along with one exclusive customization pack. Non-owners of the Year 2 Pass will be able to access the new Ghost War classes starting December 18.
