Ghost Recon Wildlands Dev Discusses Open Worlds and Dynamic Missions

By Sam Quirke, 1 year ago
We've had loads of details on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands over the last few days, kicking off with the footage from the Ubisoft conference and followed closely by a bunch of screenshots showcasing, among other things, some close-ups of the Ghosts' bearded mugs.

The PlayStation Live Cast caught up with Dominic Butler from Ubisoft Paris for a debrief. They talked a lot about the Bolivian open world (the largest in Ubisoft's history), taking us from deserts and swamps to mountaintops. Butler really hammered home the importance of co-operation with your three team-mates, whether your fellow Ghosts are AI in single-player or other players in four-person co-op. He also talked more about the fact that you can approach missions how you like, reacting and adapting if things don't go according to your plan. There's no wrong way to play a mission, apparently, as Butler recounts one playtester deciding to jump out of a helicopter plastered with C4, detonating it as it crashes into an enemy camp. We call that the "subtle" approach.

Ghost Recon Wildlands will be arriving on March 7th 2017 for Xbox One.
