Ubisoft have responded to gamers pleas for more gameplay footage of Ghost Recon Wildlands with a huge 21 minutes of gameplay. Building up nicely to the Wildlands Beta (coming very soon), this gameplay footage answers many questions, and raised some new ones – we’ve highlighted ten of the most popular these below.
In no particular order…
#10 GHOST RECON WILDLANDS IS BEAUTIFUL
There are going to be so many screenshot moments in Wildlands, it’s a stunning looking game across many different zones.
#09 GUNSMITH IS BACK, BIGGER AND BETTER!
#08 – AI Control Options
This is it, the command wheel for the control of your AI squad mates during single player missions. Ranging from Light-em-up to Hold, you have 4 options at your disposal. They might be special forces but they are not Sam Fisher, so be aware they can be spotted!
#06 – PATROLS
This is one for old school Ghost Recon fans, you know who you are; the guys who used to spend 30 minutes of a co-op mission timing the enemy patrols before you would formulate a plan. Well, there are patrols in Wildlands, and you do not want to alert these guys, so get your stop watches out.
#05 – COVER SYSTEM
It was described to me by someone as “subtle”, and I think that best sums it up – as you approach cover your character takes an appropriate stance, but without any frustrating stickiness. Press aim, and he’ll pop his head over ready to take a shot.
#04 – OVER THE SHOULDER SHOOTING
You want 3rd person shooting? Oh you prefer 1st person aiming? You’ve got the option of either, so go for it soldier.
#03 – SYNC SHOT
Sync Shot is very cool, if you take one of the tangos out the team can drop 4 simultaneously. Works a treat, easy and quick.
#02 – SYNC SHOT COOLDOWN
Wait what? There’s a cooldown timer after Sync Shot? We’re not so sure about this feature, but we’re hoping at the very least there’s a skill tree upgrade to remove it….
#1 ONE SHOT ONE KILL
The video explains that on the hardest difficulty setting, one shot landing on target will be a kill shot, one shot one kill – welcome to the unforgiving world of Ghost Recon!
