Ubisoft recently rolled out its first post-launch content for Ghost Recon Wildlands with the Narco Road DLC. The first piece of DLC for the game was a big disappointment and it led to skepticism on the quality of Ubisoft’s upcoming expansions for the title.
Ghost Recon Wildlands Narco Road drew in countless negative comments from the game’s community. With Narco Road being the first Ghost Recon Wildlands DLC, Ubisoft still has a chance to turn things around with the other expansions for the game. There are things Ubisoft should change with their future DLCs for Ghost Recon Wildlands after the mishap with Narco Road.
One of the common comments we hear from Ghost Recon Wildlands players is that Narco Road reused a part of the base map for the game. Since the area was recycled, there was very little to explore and whatever players saw in Narco Road, they probably have seen long before the DLC arrived.
Fans were mostly disappointed with this as it felt like Ubisoft rushed the DLC instead of creating something entirely new. For the next DLC, Ubisoft should add a new area. It doesn’t have to be a huge new map and as long as there are new areas to explore, it’ll do.
Drop The Weird Mechanics
Before facing with the new bosses in the Ghost Recon Wildlands DLC, players had to accumulate followers first. To do this, they had to do a bunch of tasks including stunts and other side activities. It was certainly something new and unique but fans saw the mechanic as insulting.
It would’ve been better off if Ubisoft stuck with basic mechanics such as taking down bases first before confronting the boss. For the next DLCs, it would be nice if Ubisoft keeps things simple. Not all new features are going to be received well by fans.
New Vehicles AND New Mechanics
Ghost Recon Wildlands Narco Road introduced a few land and air vehicles in the game but with all the new vehicles, Ubisoft didn’t introduce new driving mechanics. Even before the DLC launched, players had a few gripes with the game’s driving mechanics and many expected it to be fixed with Narco Road. Even if it doesn’t come in a DLC, Ubisoft should fix the game’s driving mechanics in an update.
