After its unveiling at E3 2015, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands showed off an impressive amount of footage at the same event, only a year later. Looking to impress yet again, the third-person shooter hopes to wow fans by unveiling even more footage at another major video game trade show, Gamescom in Germany.
Set a few years in the future, this tenth installment in the Ghost Recon franchise looks to mark the first entry of the series to feature an open world environment. With a plot centered around Bolivia’s Santa Blanca drug cartel, Wildlands is poised to be an ambitious game with a handful features that are somewhat underutilized within the genre. Showing off a few of these features is the game’s brand new trailer.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands’ latest trailer shows off some of the game’s weapon and character customizations, allowing each player the capability to fight the cartel their own way. Already boasting a four-player cooperative mode for the game’s campaign, Ubisoft has recently decided to lean heavily on its wide array of customization options with this promotional video.
The upcoming Tom Clancy title is slated to feature a wide range of combat styles, and in order to survive, gamers are called to adapt their strategies and even their weapons accordingly. Whether a player is seeking stealth or power, close or long-range combat, Wildlands appears to accommodate with a myriad of weapon customization options, and it is not just the weapons that can be altered. Everything from the character’s gender, appearance, and even the clothes on their back can be changed depending on the player’s preferences.
Coming almost five years after its well-received predecessor, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Wildlands hopes to earn equally high marks from critics and attract attention back to the Ghost Recon name. If the customization options in-game are as vast as this trailer would suggest, then it is safe to assume that Wildlands is well on its way to becoming a real crowd pleaser. An experience as immersive as what this video promise could truly take gamers by surprise come spring 2017.
Ubisoft has given fans a lot to be excited about with almost seven months left until the game finally hits store shelves. Between featuring up to a four-player cooperative campaign, an immense open world experience, and now, various weapon and character customizations, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is slowly but surely rising up the ranks on many gamer’s most anticipated lists.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows on March 7, 2017.
