Ubisoft have decided to kick off the E3 fun a little early, by releasing a cool new trailer for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.
In addition, we’ve also got new details on pre-orders for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Developed by Ubisoft Paris, Wildlands is described as the first military shooter set in a “massive” open-world, where you can either play by yourself or buddy up with four other players in co-op.
You’ll explore Bolivia in the near future, transformed by the vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel into a narco-state. Obviously to save the day you’ll need to go shoot all the things.
Ubisoft describe Wildlands in a press release:
Sent behind enemy lines, the Ghosts will have to cripple the Santa Blanca cartel’s operation, breaking alliances between the drug lords and the corrupt government, and saving the Bolivian population from the cruelty of El Sueño, Santa Blanca’s ruthless leader. To do so, players will have total freedom of choice to complete missions how they choose and watch as the world reacts to their actions.
Eric Couzian, Creative Director on Wildlands said:
Our goal has been to build the Ghosts as credible Spec Ops, so players have a range of options in facing not only the deadly cartels, but also the roughness of the multifaceted Bolivian landscape. Ghosts are survivors and hunters, they can blend in all sorts of environments, leaving no trace except in the heads of their terrified enemies. We want players to feel this power.
By all accounts, it seems like Ubisoft have put a lot of effort into creating a genuinely authentic experience. Check out the trailer below.
Finally, Ubisoft has announced that the following premium editions are available for pre-order now, in addition to the standard game. Take a look below.
The Deluxe Edition, available at GAME, contains the Standard Edition and the digital Deluxe Pack, which includes: the Huntsman rifle and motorbike, 3 emblems, 3 weapon camos, 3 character customisation items, and an XP booster.
The physical version of The Deluxe Edition will also include 2 extra physical items: an in-game map of Bolivia and the original soundtrack of the game.
The Gold Edition,available at Amazon, includes the Season Pass, giving players access to two major expansions, as well as exclusive digital content such as equipment packs, an exclusive vehicle, epic weapons, and the digital Deluxe Pack.
The Calavera Collector’s Case, exclusive to the Uplay Shop,includes all the equipment needed to operate as a Ghost deep inside the Bolivian wildlands to take down the vicious Santa Blanca cartel.
This includes the Gold Edition alongside the Ghost’s Audio Headset replica, a fully functional headset for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
The Collector’s Case also contains a Santa Blanca Cartel Skull, an in-game map of Bolivia, the original soundtrack of the game, a Bolivian carrying pouch, and 3 postcards of Bolivia. Plenty to enjoy, then.
Additionally, anyone who pre-orders the game will net themselves a bonus mission that involves a journey through the high mountains of Bolivia to break the alliance between the Santa Blanca and the Peruvian Cartels.
