Ubisoft?s upcoming open-world shooter, Tom Clancy?s Ghost Recon Wildlands, has been one of the most talked about games in the industry since its debut at E3 2015. The first trailer revealed an intense tactical shooter set in a beautifully recreated version of Bolivia.
Ghost Recon Wildlands to go Global?
One moment from the clip that fans can?t stop talking about occurs right at the end, when the camera pulls back to reveal the entire map of the world. Fans have speculated that this means the game will eventually move beyond South America. Could the Ghosts take the fight against the drug trade to other locations across the globe? Given Ubisoft?s predisposition toward downloadable content, we wouldn?t bet against the company offering new countries or even continents as DLC in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.
An even more interesting theory speculates that the game may be the precursor to a full-blown Ghost Recon MMO. During the reveal of the world map, we can see the gamertags of different players dotted across it. Could this be an indication that other Ghosts are carrying out missions in these parts of the globe?
Ubisoft has said in the past that the Ghost Recon Wildlands will be a squad-based cooperative game that lets up to four players team up at once. The official description reads: ?Ghost Recon is the first military shooter set in a massive and responsive open world, entirely playable in single-player or four-player co-op.? Is this just the beginning?
Some fans have tried to downplay this aspect of the trailer of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, saying that the world map reveal at the end is simply a reference to the repercussions the drug trade has on the rest of the world. It?s very likely that this whole thing has just been misinterpreted by the fan base, but it does make for some interesting ideas. Ghost Recon Wildlands is slated for release between 2016 and 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
