Ghost Recon Wildlands – Mission Briefing Trailer

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is looking more and more like a GOTY 2017 contender and there’s still 3 months to go until it’s release on March 7, 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s clearly one of the most highly anticipated games of 2017, I’d say the most of March at least but then Mass Effect: Andromeda is coming out later that same month! Happy Birthday to me!!

Back to it, with last weekend’s plethora of amazing game reveals and trailers being released at the PlayStation Experience, you’d think the gaming world would take a little breather, but Ubisoft have dropped a cracking looking trailer for Ghost Recon Wildlands titling it as a Mission Briefing.

The game will be taking place in Boliva to take out the Santa Blanca Drug Cartel, the obvious reason for choosing Boliva exemplified in the briefing as having a field of operations including “dense jungles, freezing mountains and salt flats” as well as showing off a number of coastal areas and towns, Ghost Recon Wildlands will not be short of a great amount of variation on where and how you’ll go about your missions.

The aim will be to “destabilize each aspect of their operations – production, smuggling, influence and security – to bring them to their knees.” A great feature of the game which I’m definitely looking forward to doing is the “full-autonomy” that you’ll have in the game “You pick your targets, you decide how to take them out. Just get it done.”

To make things more interesting, the local militia (Unidad) are on the cartel’s payroll whilst your “new best friends” will be “low-rent rebel group, called the Kataris 26” who are both under-funded and under-equipped – well who would really want your best buds to be fully-funded and equipped up the wazoo?

It appears as though there will be no set method of completing missions, nor will there be a set path to follow. It would seem that everything from scouting the opposition, to gathering intel to actually executing the missions you decide upon are down to you. This can only be a good thing that will make the game almost infinitely replayable.

Enough spiel though, let’s get to it – check out the trailer below.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands looks incredible, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it this March 2017. What do you think though? Is this on your wishlist for 2017?
