Ubisoft has announced that ‘New Assignment’, the new free update for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, is now available on next-gen platforms and Windows PC.
‘New Assignment’ continues to expand the Ghost War experience by adding three new classes, completing the total of six additional classes planned to be introduced within the span of the Ghost War roadmap. Available in all PvP modes, the new classes introduced in ‘New Assignment’ are:
· The Trapper: an expert shooter, equipped with a semi-automatic sniper rifle with the ability to mark downed enemies and deploy remote KO-gas traps to stun and damage enemies
· The Guerilla: a support-class, specialised in diversion tactics and equipped with a smoke-grenade launcher drone
· The Stalker: a sharpshooter, specialised in silently dispatching her enemies thanks to her special abilities
With 18 diverse classes to choose from, players will have more tactical options and ways to approach situations on the Ghost War battlefield than ever before.
‘New Assignment’ will also introduce two new maps, “Refinery” and “Cliffside,” available for the Extraction mode exclusively, as well as a series of updates addressing player feedback for both PvP and PvE modes. A new map-voting tool will allow players to vote for one of three possible Ghost War maps, each from a different game mode, at the start of every new PvP Quickplay and Ranked match.
The new maps and gameplay updates will be available free and simultaneously to all players. Season Pass and Ghost War Pass owners will immediately unlock the three new classes with an exclusive seven-day early access, while other players will be able to unlock classes with Prestige credits earned through progression or via purchasing them in the in-game store. These classes round off the PvP content included in the Season Pass and Ghost War Pass offers.
Launched on March the 7th, 2017, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands received substantial post-launch support during its first year with the release of two expansions, a regularly updated tactical 4v4 PvP experience, as well as several updates for the PvE campaign, including special missions and limited-time challenges. Following the release of ‘New Assignment’, Ghost War Updates 5 and 6 will merge into a single update planned for early April.
“We want to thank players for their continuous support and feedback during its first year,” said Nouredine Abboud, Senior Producer. “We have much more to come and cannot wait to share more information with you.”
