Ubisoft is taking things to new heights after setting Bolivia as its next location for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. Their choice couldn?t be more fitting as some of the most notorious drug cartels are found in this place. It?s the perfect reason to put the region in the limelight. Interestingly, it?s also the team?s effort to visit Bolivia that made it even more a candidate region for the game.
In an interview with ?lead artist and technical art director at Ubisoft Paris Benoit Martinez, he said ?We decided from the very beginning that Bolivia would be the location for the game because it was a good match for a Tom Clancy game. We know where it is, but not everyone?s been there. It gives a lot of opportunities for us to create a landscape that lets players discover this country and this culture.?
Ubisoft and its Bolivia Choice
Ubisoft, during the creation of Ghost Recon Wilds Bolivia, also flipped through 15,000 images; deciding which one will fit best in the game. The dedication to create Bolivia as a fitting location for the game was backed up by Martinez?s recent interview. He said ?The biggest challenge was to define our world. We went to Bolivia for a couple of weeks, and dispatched the team between the north, south, east, and west regions of the country. We were everywhere, from the Altiplano to the death road, jungle, islands, and everything in between.?
Learning the culture of Bolivia played a big role in the success of Tom Clancy?s Ghost Recon Wildlands. From visiting coca fields to interviewing the locals, Ubisoft felt compelled to learn everything. Martinez also said, they came back realizing they explored Bolivia more times than the number of pictures they were able to gather during the research.
After researching and exploring Bolivia for Ghost Recon Wildlands, Ubisoft was ready to put their exploration into the videogame. Martinez confirmed ?It?s not the real Bolivia, we have to level-design our world and make it interesting to the player by always giving them something new to discover.?
