While we’ve seen no shortage of Tom Clancy-branded games over the last few years, it’s been quite some time since a full-fledged Ghost Recon title has been released. A few staples of the series have generally revolved around thoughtful planning, teamwork, clear communication, and synchronized execution. Ubisoft aims to pass the torch to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, with hopes of exuding the spirit of previous titles in spades.
Last week at Gamescom, Ubisoft had a new trailer for their upcoming third-person shooter, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands. This time around they're highlighting all of the customization you can do as you hunt down the Santa Blanca drug cartel.
Blessings came aplenty for Tom Clancy fans this E3. Not only did we find out that Ghost Recon Wildlands will be gracing us with its presence on March 7, 2017, but we also got more than a few tastes of what exactly that grace entails.
Though it's not due for release until 2017, it's never too early to get the hype train (woo woo!) rolling on the next Tom Clancy game, Ghost Recon Wildlands. The latest trailer, titled "We Are Ghosts," highlights just a few of the special skills the Ghost unit brings to the table. Like animal husbandry or ferroequinology. ...
"The Clance" as he is known in some circles, powerbombs onto the Patriot Mobile with Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands announced this year at E3. Well, not really. Mr. Clancy is no longer with us, so he doesn't really have much say in the matter. But, that doesn't stop the immortal legacy of highly trained special agents sniping drug czars and leveling a city block to get the job done.
Ubisoft's E3 2015 press conference just wrapped up and there was a few surprise reveals. The biggest one for co-op fans is a return of the Ghost Recon franchise, this time to next-gen platforms. Revealed was Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, a four player co-op tactical shooter that looks equal parts Ghost Recon as it does Far Cry.
Ubisoft has made the ultimate call on some of its older titles. While online connectivity has been compromised for a few of these games in the past, (such as stripping out Xbox Achievements and PS3 Trophies) they're finally getting the full on multiplayer-ectomy. Ubisoft is bringing down the online servers and striking them from U-play on August 8th.
Being a Gold member of XBL is more than just having to pay for online stuff and getting some free old games. It also gives you access to weekly sales that more often than not include money off co-op games. This week is no different with the likes of Saints Row IV, Smurfs 2, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Rayman Legends, Invincible Tiger and many others having money off.
A nice variety of new games and add-on content dropped yesterday. But what about the tried and true military shooter fans? No worries, there's something for you, too. Ghost Recon Future Soldier's "Khyber Strike" DLC hit the Xbox 360 yesterday, and should be live on the PlayStation 3 today. This is the third piece of DLC for the third-person gadget shooter. While not as co-op friendly as "Raven Strike," it includes a little something for everyone.
The third collection of Ghost Recon Future Soldier DLC will be available next week. "Khyber Strike" will offer players three new multiplayer maps, one new versus mode, a new cooperative Guerilla Mode map, new Achievements, plus an increase in the level cap.
The second DLC package for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier is now available to purchase. The content is available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for the price of $15. The PC version will be released "at a later date."
