from last week reveals plans to bring Battle Crates to Ghost
, as Ubisoft seeks to get in on some of that sweet, sweet
internet hate that surrounds such features (thanks
). Here's the plan to bring randomized loot to the shooter:
Coming with the next Ghost Recon Wildlands update, Extended Ops, we will
be introducing Battle Crates that are designed to offer you an additionnal and
accessible way to complete your cosmetic customization experience, for both the
Campaign and Ghost War modes. The Extended Ops update will be released for free
before the end of the month for all platforms. Stay tuned for more details about
the content of the update coming soon.
Throughout the development of the Battle Crates, we made sure the implementation
is fair in terms of the items given to players, while also ensuring that they
have zero impact on gameplay and player’s progression. Below you will find an
F.A.Q. that will further detail the new store implementation.
How to get Battle Crates
All players will receive a gifted Spec Ops Crate and a gifted Ghost War Crate,
which are redeemable on the Ubisoft Club. Battle Crates can then be purchased
from the Store for 400 Store Credits, with each Battle Crate containing three
items that you do not already own.
Battle Crates Content
Battle Crate is the name of a collection of crates specifically designed for the
Campaign and co-op mode (Spec Ops Crate) as well as for the Ghost War mode
(Ghost War Crate). Spec Ops Crates contain Epic Weapons, Exotic Weapons,
Vehicles and tons of cosmetic items for you to enjoy even more in the whole
Ghost War Crates contain Exotic Weapons (re-skinned versions of weapons already
available in the game – no impact on the weapon stats), customization items and
an exclusive new line of skins for your character, called Icons.
Overall, all the cosmetic items you get can be used in both the Campaign and
Ghost War modes. More than 200 items are available through the Battle Crates
experience. All the items are also purchasable in the store through the various
pack offers, except for the Icon skins that are exclusive to the Ghost War
