Remember Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier? Ubisoft certainly do and today they are paying homage to the old tactical shooter by delivering a 2-part special mission in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
Starting today, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands players can participate in a brand new event that lets them experience the expansive Tom Clancy universe as a whole, with a free Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier–themed special mission featuring iconic characters Scott Mitchell and John Kozak as part of Special Operation 3.
This third major update of covering the Year 2 content will see players able to team up with Mitchell and Kozak for this two-part special crossover event. This will see exclusive Ghost Recon Future Soldier–themed content introduced to the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands’ main campaign and PvP mode, with two new Future Soldier–inspired Ghost War PvP classes and a PvE mission, Operation Silent Spade, included.
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. This special challenge will be playable either solo or with up to four players in co-op.
Upon completing Operation Silent Spade you will find yourself rewarded with the Optical Camo Backpack, something which is perfect for a stealth approach. In addition you can further customise and arm your Ghosts with the Silent Spade Pack, which includes a weapon and new customisation items.
There will also be two new Ghost War PvP classes – Vanguard and Sharpshooter – inspired by 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 the two new classes, the update will also contain two new PvP maps, Lithium Mine and Outskirts.
It’s an exciting time to be a Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands player and with the Year 2 Pass offering seven-day early access to the two new Ghost War classes from now, along with one exclusive customisation pack, fans of the game would be crazy to not give it a shot. Those who prefer to stay away from the Pass will be able to access the new Ghost War classes starting December 18th.
Those on PC who want to share the experience with friends can gain Battle Crate rewards including Spec Ops and Ghost War Crates, via the PC Referral Program from December 11 – February 11, 2019. Any invited friends who then go on to purchase the game will also receive Battle Crate rewards, including one Ghost War Crate and One Spec Ops Crate. Basically put, the more friends you invite, the more rewards you will receive.
