Ghost Recon Wildlands gets live-action trailer ahead of March release date

Ubisoft has deployed a new live-action trailer for its upcoming open-world tactical shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. 

New Ghost Recon Wildlands trailer goes live

Ghost Recon Wildlands is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on March 7, 2017. Currently in development at Ubisoft Paris, the game has been touted as one of the biggest open-world title in the French publishing giant’s history, and moves away from the futuristic setting of the Advanced Warfighter games in favour of something more aligned with the original Ghost Recon. The game takes place in Bolivia, where the player’s unit, the Ghosts, is dispatched to the region to overthrow a notorious drugs cartel and bring stability to the region.

Ghost Recon Wildlands has been in development for some time now, with production kicking off back in 2012. However, it wasn’t until E3 2015 that we caught our first glimpse at the game during Ubisoft’s press conference, with the company revealing it visited Bolivia for two weeks in order to research and develop a realistic virtual representation of the country for Wildlands’ gameplay. 

Set from a third-person viewpoint, Ghost Recon Wildlands is the first entry in the celebrated franchise to take place within a full open-world setting, which features nine different types of terrain (mountains, forests, deserts, salt flats among others) as well as a full-blown day-night cycle complete with dynamic weather. Unlike its predecessors, Wildlands will feature a variety of side missions to tackle outside of the main campaign, with gamers also able to team up in four-player cooperative play as part of the game’s multiplayer component.
