Ubisoft's Ghost Recon: Wildlands took gaming by storm throughout 2017, becoming the best-selling multiplatform game before Destiny 2 shuffled along and took the crown. Well, given how popular the game is, it should come as no surprise that Ubisoft will be supporting Ghost Recon: Wildlands well into 2018.
According to Ubisoft, gamers can look forward to a bevy of new content for the game. It all started just recently on November 16th when Ubisoft rolled out the Interference update that went live on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The Interference update adds an all-new class, new maps and a new game mode called Uplink.
The next major update will be available starting in December. As outlined on the official website, those who own the game will be able to also look forward to another update set to go live January, 2018, another one in February, followed by a new update in March, and then finally a massive update in April.
The Uplink mode is a 4-vs-4 objective-based multiplayer mode where the two teams fight to control the access points at the center of the map. The Uplink mode is similar to the Domination modes or the Control Point modes in other first-person shooter games, such as Battlefield or Call of Duty. This new mode adds an all-new way to play and additional tactical strategies in the new multiplayer mode.
The new mode was accompanied by an all-new character class known as the Disruptor in the PvP mode. This brings the total class count up to 14 unique classes, giving gamers an additional opportunity to play with brand new tactical options, including making use of a new jamming device at the Disruptor's disposal that interferes with the enemy's HUD, masking markers and obscuring information on the mini-map. It's a good class to use for those who like using stealth in an attempt to get the jump on their opponents in dynamic fashion.
You'll be able to play the new mode on five brand new maps for Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The maps aren't detailed, but you can expect a lot more content now that Ubisoft has made the Ghost War Pass available as a standalone purchase for gamers who already own the title but did not purchase the season pass as part of the deluxe edition.
The standalone Ghost War Pass is available for $14.99, which will give gamers instant access to all of the new character classes, seven-day early access to all new content, and all of the other current benefits available for those who did originally purchase the season pass for Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
If you're unsure about the game there is actually a trial offer available for the game that will allow gamers to have full access to the campaign mode, the PvP modes, and the multiplayer modes for up to five hours. That's actually a heck of a lot of play-time for not having to pay for a full priced game. What's more is that the progress made in the trial mode will carry over into the full version of the game if you decide to purchase it.
