Today, Ubisoft fully revealed 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 tomorrow, February
27, on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of
devices including Xbox One X and Windows 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. Solo or 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 and 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 that shoots
"concussion" mines. These mines drain stamina from players and suppress
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. Finally, Special Operation
4 will add a new Heatmap view, thanks to which players will be able to see the
most visited locations in the Wildlands and discover some they may never have
The Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 Pass offers seven-day early access to the new
