Ubisoft's major update for Ghost Recon: Wildlands featuring the Splinter Cell content is set to arrive later this week. The new update will give fans of Wildlands some additional content to sink their teeth into whether they're playing on the Xbox One, PS4 or PC.

The trailer was posted on the official Ubisoft YouTube channel. It's two and a half minutes long and starts with a voiceover from none other than the original Sam Fisher, the venerable Michael Ironside.

The unmistakable voice of the Canadian actor shines through front and center as he explains that Langley doesn't like to be messed with. We get a glimpse of a heavily armored compound, and Ironside explains that when Langley has an international problem, they call him... since he's the guy that can go where others can't.

Ironside's voiceover feels right at home in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. He really seems to be into the role here, returning as Sam Fisher. The trailer explains that Fisher is the guy who executes his directives with "swift action" and in equal manner, the guy that they can disavow if things get ugly.

Meanwhile, we get glimpses of Fisher stealthily sneaking into the compound, taking out the guards, hiding the bodies and using a knife to get most of the dirty deeds done.

It's explained that the target that stole the information from Langley has plans on selling the information to the drug cartels in Bolivia. Fisher is sent in to neutralize the target and retrieve the data.

The cinematography for the level and the lighting is absolutely perfect. In fact, if you weren't paying attention you would just as well assume that this was a right proper sequel to the beloved Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. The dark, moody aesthetic and Sam's gear look like the next step up from what was introduced in the Xbox classic.

The trailer does a better job of setting up a Splinter Cell game than every single one of the trailers for Splinter Cell: Blacklist. It's amazing what an Echelon suit, Michael Ironside's voice and a karambit knife will do for raising the excitement levels within the gaming community for a new Splinter Cell title.

But, in addition to Sam Fisher's iconic suit and deadly knife, there are also new pistols and assault rifles added to the game, along with several new night vision googles, one of which includes the three-goggle headset that Fisher is known for wearing in the Splinter Cell franchise.

All of this content for Ghost Recon: Wildlands will go live starting April 10th with the Special Operation 1 DLC update. I imagine a lot of gamers will be willing to fork over cash to Ubisoft given that the company seems to be giving gamers the Sam Fisher they grew up with and in a very respectful manner. You can look to grab the DLC for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
