Ghost Recon Wildlands Gets A Hybrid Battle Royale Mode As Its Final Update
While Ubisoft has already announced the newest Ghost Recon game scheduled to come out later this year, they're still not done adding new things for 2017's Wildlands. Well, now they're done, as this is final update, but it's still surprisingly close to the next game to get an entire new mode for the game. Ubisoft is still poking and prodding the successful Ghost Recon title, though, this time with a new mode called Mercenaries.
You can check out the trailer below.
The new mode is kind of pseudo-battle royale mode limited to eight players. All the players spawn and are tasked with gathering equipment, finding an extraction point, and eventually extracting themselves, all the while fighting against other players and enemies.
Players who complete at least one match get a "Lone Wolf" costume, which is part of the ongoing few months of challenges leading up to the release of Breakpoint. These challenges will eventually unlock things in the new game using your Ubisoft account if you plan to just leap from one game to the next, all the way up to September 27.
The Mercenaries mode, which I feel like is a pointed reference to an oft-ignored other Tom Clancy game from Ubisoft, releases tomorrow. Ghost Recon Breakpoint releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 4.
