Ghost Recon: Wildlands TV spot is all CG, still not using Eric Clapton’s Cocaine

17 Feb

How come Ubisoft couldn’t use Eric Clapton’s Cocaine in any of its promo material for Ghost Recon: Wildlands?

Ubisoft has unveiled the latest TV spot for Ghost Recon: Wildlands. TV spots are typically very short, for obvious reasons, and rely mostly on CG and flashy footage.

This most recent one follows the same guidelines, and succeeds in pitching the game’s main concepts in under one minute. Those being, the open world, the freedom you have in how you can approach each mission, the vehicles you can use, and the big baddies you’ll be going after.

Unfortunately, it’s yet another trailer for the game that somehow doesn’t use Eric Clapton’s iconic cover of Cocaine. C’mon guys, you must find a way.

If you’re looking to try out Wildlands before it’s release, there’s going to be a beta next weekend, open to all. The open beta will feature a sizeable amount of content, even more so than closed beta.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is out March 7 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands – here’s exactly when the open beta goes live in your region, and what’s in it

17 Feb

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta is just a few days away. Here’s all the information you need in one place.

ghost_recon_wildlands_9

After a successful closed beta round earlier this month, the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta will be returning once again – only it will be open to everyone this time.

That’s right, the open beta will be available to download on PC, PS4, and Xbox One without prior need to register or redeem keys anywhere. The open beta goes live on Thursday, February 23 and will remain online all the way through Monday, February 27.

The download client size is not yet known, but we suspect it’ll be bigger than that of the closed beta. In any case, you’ll be able to pre-load the open beta starting Monday, February 20, so there should be plenty of time.

As for content, the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta includes two regions of the full game’s 21. Itacua, the region from the closed beta, as well as a new region called Montuyoc, will both be accessible during this open beta.

Finally, if you play the open beta and buy the full game before March 31, you’ll unlock a free, extra mission in the full game. The mission is called the Unidad Conspiracy, and it tasks you with sparking war between the militia group Unidad and the Santa Blanca cartel.

Although Ubisoft has not yet announced if those who participated in the Ghost Recon: Wildlands closed beta can just update their clients to play the open beta, it’s recommended you don’t delete it util we get word.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands officially releases on March 7 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

If you plan on participating in the beta, you can pre-load the tester starting Monday, February 20.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta kicks off next weekend, pre-load it on February 20

16 Feb

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta will kick off next weekend on all platforms.

Each player participating in the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta will have access to the exclusive “Unidad Conspiracy” mission if they purchase the game and “play it in full by March 31.”

Players will need to use the same Ubisoft account for both the beta and full game in order to acquire the content.

The Unidad Conspiracy mission, players are tasked with “sparking a war” between the corrupt militia group Unidad and the Santa Blanca cartel.

As previously reported, the open beta will also introduce a not one, but two provinces among the 21 included in the final game.

These are Itacua, a mountainous province where the grip of the cartel is looser and Montuyoc, set in the snowy Altiplano, a much more challenging area. Luckily, the player will have gained XP and skills boosts by suppressing the Itacua bosses in the first province.

They can, of course, jump right into Montuyoc if they wish but it sounds unwise.

As in the full game, all the content in the open beta will be playable with up to three friends on the same platform via four player co-op, or in single player.

Players will be able to make use of a large variety of vehicles, tactical equipment and weapons as well.

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta will run February 23-27, and you can start pre-loading the beta on Monday, February 20.

If you are unable to view the trailer above, the UK one is through here.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One March 7.

Missing the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta? Perhaps this trailer for the live action movie will comfort you

6 Feb

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is going away for weeks and week and weeks, but at least we have this.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands won a lot of hearts during its closed beta testing this weekend, but that just means we’re all going to sit around and pine for it.

Perhaps anticipating your sudden bereavement, Ubisoft has commissioned a live action Ghost Recon: Wildlands short, which serves as a prologue of sorts and tells a story from within the cartel you’ll be taking down in-game.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands releases in early March for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, which feels a long way off now, but the Ghost Recon: Wildlands movie releases next week, which is a much more tolerable wait. And when it is done, you’ll be a whole week closer to the real thing.

So set your mental calendar to February 16, the short’s debut date, and feed your anticipation by watching the trailer above. Ghost Recon: Wildlands loves you, my cherubim, and it will come back to you: but first, you must set it free.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands closed beta start time and everything else you need to know

2 Feb

All the content that’ll be accessible in the Ghost Recon: Wildlands closed beta.

ghost_recon_wildlands_gamescom_2016_screen_2

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands closed beta officially kicks off today, and some have already begun pre-loading it.

Although there are many reports of people not receiving invites, the hope is that it’ll all be sorted before servers go live.

Here’s what time the Ghost Recon Wildlands beta goes live in your region:

  • 3am PST
  • 6am EST
  • 11am GMT
  • 12pm CET

Until then, here’s what you can look forward to playing when you do get in:

The Itacua region will be the only one accessible in the beta. Wildlands’ map is quite massive, and despite having most of it locked, the available area is still pretty sizeable.

All main missions and activities in the region will be available to play either solo with three AI bots, or in co-op with three human players. In addition, you’ll be able to try out the feature-rich Gunsmith – the game’s extensive gun customisation option, as well as the detailed character creator.

Finally, if you play the beta, you’ll be given a free Llama shirt for use in-game.

If you still haven’t received your Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta invite, don’t fret, they’re being sent in waves

2 Feb

If you registered for a Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta invite sometime ago but have yet to get an email, you’re not alone.

ghost_recon_wildlands_6 (Copy)

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands closed beta is scheduled to start tomorrow, but email invites should have started going out yesterday.

Well, they have, but not for everyone it seems. Unlike the recent For Honor beta, many Wildlands fans appear to have been left behind, still waiting for their beta codes and invite emails.

The game’s sub-Reddits are absolutely full of reports from players on PC, PS4, and Xbox One who have no idea if they’re getting in or not, despite putting their names down very early.

Ubisoft has not issued an update about the matter, but the publisher’s Twitter account has been getting bombarded with requests from fans to look into it. Most of them got the same “codes are being sent in waves” reply, and the rest were refereed to support.

It’s not clear what’s taking that long, but it’ll definitely prevent players from being able to pre-load the beta ahead of tomorrow’s launch.

For now, all you can do is check this page to see if it confirms you’ve been accepted. Otherwise, sit tight for an email.

Here’s a couple more Ghost Recon: Wildlands videos to round the day out.

The first video you see from Arekkz above is another look at the Gunsmith, which is the weapons customization features in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. It also takes a look at the character customization.

The hands-on embargo for Ghost recon: Wildlands has dropped, and plenty of folks were able to try out the latest in Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy franchise.

One member of that lucky group was Westie, who was able to record the Ghost Recon: Wildlands gameplay you see above on PlayStation 4.

In the video, most of the gameplay is co-op, but he also provides a look at weapon and character customization and showcases some previously unseen features.

Latest Ghost Recon: Wildlands videos prepare you for next week’s beta

25 Jan

The first closed beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands kicks off next weekend, and to prepare you for what’s in store, Ubisoft has released three videos, one of which walks you through player customization.

ghost_recon_wildlands_6 (Copy)

Those who have signed up for the Ghost Recon: Wildlands testers should know the first closed beta kicks off next weekend on February 3 and runs through February 6. Pre-load for PC, PS4 and Xbox One will start on February 1.

Participants will be exploring the province of Itacua, and work to take down key members of the Santa Blanca drug cartel. Similar to the full game, all content in the tester will be playable with up to three others via four player co-op, or in single-player. Players are free to utilize any variety of vehicles, tactical equipment and weapons.

As previously reported, there will be multiple Ghost Recon: Wildlands betas so if you aren’t picked for the first one, you’ll get another chance. Also, each selected player can invite up to three friends to join their team on the same platform.

If you’re interested in learning more about the the multiplayer, Paul Davies recently got his hands on it during a preview event held in Paris earlier this month. Be sure to give it a read. And if you aren’t interested in multiplayer, you should have a look at the single-player.

As you can see in the video above, players are able to customize not only their appearance in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, but they can also adjust their loadout and weapon customization on the fly.

The two videos posted below offer a quick look at the Peruvian Connection pre-order bonus and the other is a standard trailer.

The Peruvian Connection takes players high into the mountains of Bolivia to break a “deadly alliance” between the Santa Blanca and the Peruvian cartels.

And the final video below provides a look at the various environments players and situations in the game.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands – the pros and cons of multiplayer co-op

25 Jan

Once a mission is completed, is there any temptation to go back?

ghost_recon_support

“If the End Game is completing all the missions on Ghost difficulty, it may be hard to convince friends to pursue this without superior loot in prospect”

First attempts at 4-player co-op in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands highlight the pros and cons of the game in a brutal fashion.

With a handful of EXP-points to spend on upgrading our weapon, drone, equipment and squad capabilities, the Ghost Recon: Wildlands experience was about to get real. Assigned three random (respected fellow journalist) players, my missions require excellent real-world verbal communication in addition to cover-and-shoot experience and expertise.

Our instructor had the AI ramped up to Elite, one below the most difficult Ghost setting, so that our enemy would now be more aware and retaliate with greater force. At this stage it is perhaps worth pointing out that, unlike with The Division, health and mobility on both sides of the battle remain neutral – characters are not artificially levelled to necessitate grinding. Mission success in Wildlands is down to decision making and execution, pure and simple.

Or, not so simple as it turned out.

ghost_recon_wildlands_9 (Copy)

Ubisoft’s Responsive Open World

The mission routine in Ghost Recon: Wildlands is different to The Division in a couple of key ways. First, Wildlands is not a shared-world shooter with instanced scenarios, it is played as a regular co-op campaign with difficulty set from the menus. Second, and equally important, is how the method of approach to locations can affect mission outcomes in significant ways.

And so, for our first infiltration of a cartel outpost, we wisely drove by night, stopping short of the facility to scope it out. With night-vision equipped, we coordinated reasonably well to thin the numbers of guards armed with mini-guns. We could’ve parachuted from a chopper, or shot the place to shreds from the air (or tried to) but the ground assault seemed right at the time. Once you’re committed to the strategy, you have to make it work as the team.

Speaking in terms of Destiny, the four-man missions feel something between a Strike and a Raid in many ways, but more free-form and – okay – without colossal bosses to take-down. As a shared activity, though, the beats feel quite familiar, and perfected along similar lines.

Vehicles play a major role in the entertainment value, as well as being a practical concern. Why take the flat-bed truck when an armoured troop carrier is also at hand? One is subtle, the other not so much. Guess which one will raise the alarm, though.

ghost_recon_wildlands_3 (Copy)

After gathering intel by interrogating a cartel soldier, it was the next stage of the mission that tested the team most of all. Shooting our way in and out of an outpost just about ran smoothly, with few friendly casualties. This was Battlefield or Call of Duty territory. Where the game truly became Ghost Recon is in the attempted exfiltration of a cartel deserter.

Our guy was being guarded by an organised team out in the open somewhere, with spotters and snipers positioned on the rocks and guards patrolling muddy roads close to their cars. The task was simple, but identifying all the components in addition to perfect execution was tough for our new team. The key to this particular puzzle was that the deserter, already out of favour, was dispensable to the cartel. If the group became alerted they would shoot him without a second thought. And so, this needed to be a clean push from start to end.

After countless embarrassing restarts, having risked a gung-ho approach numerous times, the trick was to identify only a handful of threats to sneak away the target unharmed. Or, in our case, cause a distraction with two or three players while one agent made the snatch.

ghost_recon_wildlands_10 (Copy)

More familiar territory

“Our official hands-on time was up, but even so I think the team would’ve called it a night by that stage. The mission was done. We earned more EXP for upgrades. Catch you all later”

Our group fared much better in the second, allegedly more challenging, mission. Our overall impression was less favourable as a consequence. After a soft interrogation of the deserter, Emilio – presented as a cinematic cut-scene – we learned the identity of a new target; one former army ranger Carl Bookhart, holed up in an abandoned silver mine. We stormed the base from the outside, before hosing our way in and out without much strategic thought.

We worked the entrance tunnels and metal stairwells exceptionally well – the objective always right in front of us: guys to shoot. The action was reminiscent of the Mexican tunnel scenes in Sicario, watching corners, following the sounds of gunfire to provide support to a team that had forgotten the benefits of sticking close together. With flashbangs, frags and heavy firepower, Brookhart was soon smoked out of his hiding place and effortlessly slain.

Our official hands-on time was up, but even so I think the team would’ve called it a night by that stage. The mission was done. We earned more EXP for upgrades. Catch you all later.

Repeat performance

Personally speaking, enthusiasm for Ghost Recon: Wildlands centres a lot on the theme of resourceful agents and the potential to shape missions in inventive new ways. One concern is that, unlike The Division, Destiny and to some extent the team-based efforts of Overwatch to gain EXP and improve ranking as a group, the take-away from Wildlands is much more traditional. Your reward is Mission Complete, since there is no loot system as such.

On the one hand this is good, since effort is put into acquiring and upgrading gear that suits a particular playstyle. But if the End Game is completing all the missions on Ghost difficulty, it may be hard to convince friends to pursue this without superior loot in prospect.

Ubisoft recently confirmed a PvP mode to be added after launch, but no details have been shared. Perhaps this will be the key to the game’s longevity owing to bragging rights of the top players, and a go-to destination for people looking to mix things up between grand-scale Battlefield, cat-and-mouse Call of Duty and the grindfests of Destiny and The Division.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands single-player features shown off in extensive walkthrough video

20 Jan

Take a look at what Ghost Recon: Wildlands has to offer those who prefer a single-player experience.

In this walkthrough video, Ghost Recon: Wildlands lead designer Dominic Butler, talks you through the actions seen in the video.

For those who aren’t keen on multiplayer, or who just want to take a break and go solo, the game will provide you with three AI teammates. You will need these characters in order to make it through the 21 provinces available in the game.

The video shows some of these provinces when the in-game map is displayed, and the group choppers over to the next checkpoint.

Players can manage the three AI teammates by using a Command Wheel where they can be given four direct orders. They will adapt their actions to the player’s play-style, but using the commands offers more precision. They can be commanded to regroup, go to a specific location, hold position, or open fire.

If you give it a watch, you’ll notice there are various ways to and area. Sometimes the player will need to equip a suppressor on their weapon, for example. This can be done both on the fly, or through the UI’s Gunsmith section. This is where the player can fully customize their weapons.

The video is just over 21 minutes long, so grab beverage or something and give it a watch.

If you have yet to sign up for one of the multiple betas, you can so so through the official website.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on March 7.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands spawns a live action short, debuting on Twitch and Amazon next month

13 Jan

Ghost Recon: Wildlands had better duck. Ubisoft is throwing everything it has at it.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands doesn’t seem to be achieving the sort of hype you’d expect from a big budget Ubisoft release, but it’s not for lack of trying. The latest promotional effort is a live-action short.

Called Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel, the 30 minute movie will debut on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel on February 16, and then become available for download via Amazon Prime immediately after the stream.

As the title and teaser above probably suggested, the short is all about the Santa Blanca cartel featured in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Headed up by one El Sueño, the cartel has turned Bolivia into a “narco-state”, but there’s a traitor in its midst. El Muro (Head of Security), El Yayo (Head of Production), Nidia Flores (Head of Operations) and Head of Influence (El Cardenal) are tasked with tracking down the turncoat, which leads into the events of the game.

Grammy winning hiphop artist Tip “T.I.” Harris plays Marcus, one of the members of the cartel. The series is directed by Avi Youabian, a prolific editor with a couple of TV directing credits on Tainted Love and The Walking Dead. The executive producer is Orlando Jones, who is often remembered as one of the MADtv cast but has a stack of producing and writing credits in addition to his acting work. (He’s playing Mr Nancy in the upcoming American Gods series, by the by.)

Ghost Recon: Wildlands releases in March for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It’s an open world, third-person tactical shooter playable with up to three mates, or AI companions if you like to roll solo, and persistent progression.

We haven’t seen all that much of it, but the same could be said of Rainbow Six Siege, which quietly blew up after launch. It’s the first core Ghost Recon game since 2012’s Future Soldier, which has to count for something, and a return to mainstream games for Ubisoft Paris after several years of focus on Just Dance.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands score composed by Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures veteran

12 Jan

Ghost Recon: Wildlands draws on some pretty disparate musical influences.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands boasts a soundtrack from Alain Johannes, a musician and producer who has worked in or with Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Arctic Monkeys and the Desert Sessions, among many others.

The Chilean-American composer brought some South American influences and instruments to Ghost Recon: Wildlands, which is set in Bolivia. In the developer diary above, Johannes and various Ubisoft staff talk through the game’s unique soundscape.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands releases in March for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. This is the third trailer for it in a week, which suggests Ubisoft is finally getting serious about hyping us up for it.

If you’ve somehow missed all this, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a co-op optional open-world third-person tactical shooter. It has various persistent progression systems, vehicles and unscripted AI, which sounds like pretty hot stuff in the Ubisoft sandbox tradition.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands gameplay trailer makes it look a lot like Modern Warfare 2’s Spec Ops mode

9 Jan

A quick and dirty look at the different routes each player can take in Ghost Recon: Wildlands could end up reminding you of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘s latest trailer may not feature any lovely cats, but it does offer new gameplay.

The video above was only released on Ubisoft’s Latin America YouTube channel, but all the footage appears new. It’s cut the usual way, alternating between the perspective of the different Ghosts.

About halfway through, one player supports a ground extraction from a side gun on a helicopter, covering another player as they approach with a captured target. I don’t know if it’s the angle or the editing, but the video reminded me a lot of a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops co-op mission.

Wildlands has more players, of course, and a much bigger and open-ended nature, but the feeling is the same.

It’s hard to judge the quality of gameplay from this short trailer, so we’re going to have to wait for the beta to give it a proper go. There’s no date for that just yet, however.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is out March 7 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands live-action trailer has the Ghosts eliciting the help of a cat, meowing

6 Jan

Red dots in Ghost Recon: Wildlands have multiple uses.

Ubisoft has released a new Ghost Recon: Wildlands live-action trailer that more or less shows the thing they’ve been showing in various trailers before. That is: people camping on a hill miles away spying on gang members through their sniper scopes.

Only this time, there’s a twist: a cat! The trailer starts with one of the Ghosts, a supposed elite combatant, meowing, before he gets a cat to chase the red dot on his sniper rifle. The cat is in the gang hideout they’re surveying, of course, which makes the little animal’s situation very risky.

Absolutely unprofessional behaviour from these supposed elite fighters, let me tell you.

Wildlands is out March 7 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A beta is expected sometime soon.
