Ubisoft has fully revealed the details of Special Operation 4 for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, the last free major update for the second year of post-launch content. Special Operation 4 will be released on tomorrow, February 27th, on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. The update will contain a brand new PvE mode: Guerrilla, the new Sapper PvP class and several highly requested features from the community.
Guerrilla Mode expands on the game’s PvE experience with a unique challenge testing players’ endurance, skills and tactics. The mode is available to play solo or co-operatively with up to four Ghosts. Players will need to defend key locations against increasingly deadly waves of Cartel and Unidad members. After each completed wave, players will have the opportunity to purchase and upgrade weapons, skills and attachments with resources gathered from dead enemies. Each choice will be impactful, meaning strategy will be essential to overcome the challenge.
In addition to Guerrilla Mode, Special Operation 4 introduces a wealth of new Ghost War PvP–focused content, including:
- One New PvP Class: The Sapper is a new Support class option that deploys a specialized drone capable of shooting “concussion” mines. These mines drain stamina from players as well as suppressing them, slowing down their rush.
- Two New PvP Maps.
- Two New PvP Events:
- Arms Race: Players spawn with only their pistols and are forced explore the map for better weapons.
- Danger Zone: Players are periodically bombed with ultrasonic blasts, forcing them to always be on the move.
In line with previous Year 2 updates, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will continue to receive community-requested features and improvements, including time of day setting for Solo Campaign Mode, a new bleeding notification in Ghost War, the addition of the compass HUD option to PvE, as well as the introduction of daily campaign challenges with increased rewards. Additionally, Special Operation 4 will add a new Heatmap view, where players will be able to see the most visited locations in the Wildlands and discover some they have never explored.
