Massive Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 2 Pack Coming Next Week


It’s year 2 for Ghost Recon Wildlands and Ubisoft is still happily churning out new content for the game, with Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 2 launching next week adding a huge amount of new content to the Bolivian warzone.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 2 will add content for both PVP and PVE including certain things that fans have been requesting such as a snow map in Ghost War mode, as well as perma-death, team killing, and real tactical reloading meaning you’ll lose whatever ammo is in the magazine that you drop. The new options will make for a much more realistic experience in Ghost Recon Wildlands, pushing the franchise further in the direction of where die-hard fans want it to be.

Watch the official Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 2 update trailer below:

 

Full Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 2 Update Details:

Ghost Mode: Ghost mode is designed for the best of the best Ghosts out there. In this mode, you’ll be able to create a new character in order to take down the Santa Blanca under the most thrilling conditions.

– With only one primary weapon by your side, you’ll need to choose carefully. You will only be able to change your loadout at either an ammo box, or by looting fallen enemies. 
– You will also need to plan out your reloads, as any remaining ammo in your magazine will be lost. 
– Be extremely careful with your shots, Ghosts, or you could bring down your co-op team with friendly fire. 
– And most importantly, with Ghost Mode, death is permanent. So stay frosty.

Ghost Mode will be available for all difficulty settings, including Tier 1 Mode. And of course this challenge doesn’t come without rewards: more to come on that in our patchnotes. So put your skills to the test and reap the benefits that will come with success!

This free mode will be available for all players, with a week-early access for Year 2 Pass holders starting on July 24th, 2018.

True Solo: Those who are truly looking for a lone wolf experience can now toggle off their AI teammates in both our Campaign and Ghost Mode. Up for the challenge?

New PVP Maps: We have two new maps coming to Ghost War, including a highly community- requested snow map.

Victory Screen: The taste of victory will be made even sweeter with the return of the Victory Screen at the end of Ghost War matches. The winning team will now get to show off their customization and victory poses after a well-earned win.

Observer Mode: Take your Ghost War experience to the next level with our brand new Observer Mode. Simply go into Custom Matches to both watch and showcase your Ghost War games. Game on!

Ghost War Challenges: New daily challenges will now be available in Ghost War, rewarding players with Prestige credits for their extra hard work.

Prestige Economy: You shared your feedback, and we heard you! Special Operation 2 will bring an overhaul of our Prestige economy. You will now be able to earn Prestige Credits not only in Ghost War, but also in the Campaign too (including Ghost Mode). A new tab in the Store will be added to allow you to spend your Prestige Credits not only on Ghost War Classes, but on Prestige Packs too, which include customization items.

Year 2 Pass Updates: Not only do Year 2 Pass owners gain week-early access to all Ghost War Classes, they will now also enjoy a week-early access to Ghost Mode, starting on July 24th. The Year 2 Pass also includes the Splinter Cell Gear Pack and 8 Battle Crates. You can purchase a Year 2 Pass here.

New Customization Items: More than 100 new exclusive items have been added to our Battle Crates, including new Emotes, Voice Lines, customizable weapons, vehicles, and more!

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed Ghost Recon Wildlands at launch, giving it just three stars and calling it a buggy mess, however Ubisoft has given the game a lot of love over the past 12 months and if it were reviewed today it would receive a much better score.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 2 will launch on July 24 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms. Head to the official Ghost Recon Wildlands website for more info.
