Ghost Recon Wildlands players can enjoy a second year of post-launch support starting next week.

Free content will be released for Ghost Recon Wildlands starting with Special Operation 1 on April 10.

Year 2 will include four free major updates titled Special Operations, each of which feature a unique theme, and updates for the PvE campaign. Each contain special free missions and special challenges with exclusive rewards.

Updates for Ghost War PvP will also be included alongside “features highly requested by the community.”
Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 – Special Operations 1 will feature the following:
  • Teammate Customization: The most requested feature by the community, Team Customization will allow players to customize teammate outfits with all items they have unlocked for their own character
  • PvP Update: A new game mode called Sabotage with five exclusive maps, the first of six new PvP classes for Year 2 and new perk and explosive device
  • PvE Update: A free, themed PvE mission and special challenge with exclusive rewards.

Special Operation 1 includes the content planned for Updates 5 and 6 from the original Ghost War roadmap.

As previously reported, Ubisoft updated the Ghost Recon Wildlands roadmap back in March announcing it had moved Ghost War Update 5 (Reinforcement) and Update 6 (Bravo 6) to April.

Ghost Recon Wildlands players have the option to pick up the $29.99 Year 2 Pass which includes seven-day early access to the six new classes, an exclusive customization pack, and eight Battle Crates – four Special Ops crates and four Ghost War crates – to use in Ghost War.

After laying low since 2013, Splinter Cell’s protagonist will appear in a Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation.

Ubisoft has been publishing multiple Tom Clancy franchises since 1998, but you’d be hard-pressed to find any official crossover between them. That’s about to change in a big way. After first teasing the news last weekend, Ubisoft has released details about a Ghost Recon Wildlands mission where Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher is your backup.


As depicted in the latest trailer, Sam Fisher has tracked a CIA target to Bolivia, but is forced to proceed without the support of his usual team. Thankfully Fisher’s “old friends” among the Ghosts are able to lend a hand in their usual explosive fashion.

The Splinter Cell mission will be released as free content alongside Special Operation 1, the first major update for Wildlands Year 2. Outside of PVE content, Special Operation 1 includes new customization options and a Ghost War PVP class based on Sam’s Echelon unit. For example, completing the Splinter Cell mission will unlock Sam’s sonic goggles and a new night vision filter. More weapons and cosmetic items will be available through the Year 2 pass or by spending Prestige Points.

Ubisoft has announced Special Operations 2, a free update for Ghost Recon: Wildlands that introduces new PvE and PvP features to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC open-world shooter. The new content will be available from July 24 for those that own the Year 2 pass and July 31 for everyone else.

The first of the two major additions is Ghost Mode, a new PvE experience that is designed to put a player's skills to the test. It tasks players with taking down the Santa Blanca Cartel but makes it a little trickier by activating permadeath, limiting the number of weapons you can carry at a time, making reloading more realistic, and turning on friendly fire.



Ghost War, meanwhile, is getting two new classes and two maps for players to duke it out on. On top of those, features are being added to make matches "spectator and tournament friendly." You can take a look at the full feature list for both modes below, courtesy of Ubisoft.

Ghost Mode
  • Permadeath: If players are not revived when down, their game is over and progression is reset.
  • New Loadout: Players will only be able to use one main weapon and one handgun.
  • Real Reloading: When players reload with a partially full clip, remaining bullets will be lost.
  • Friendly Fire: Players' shots and actions can cause damage to teammates.
  • Gear Management: Players can only switch weapons at ammo boxes or by looting enemies.
  • Teammate Removal: For a true solo experience, players can now choose to play without AI teammates (also available in the main campaign of the game).
Ghost War
  • New PvP Classes and Maps: Two new PvP classes and two PvP maps will be introduced, including a highly requested snow-terrain map.
  • Observer Mode: A new spectate feature that can be used to watch and showcase custom PvP matches through specific tools and a free-roam camera.
  • New Ranked Features: Introduction of a new Progression Bar that tracks Ranked progress, showing players their position in the current league.
  • Post-Match Celebration Screen: A new post-match screen where the winning team is showcased.
  • Social Items: A new feature consisting of emotes, voice lines and victory poses to further personalize players’ experiences (also available in the main campaign of the game).
Early access to Special Operations 2 is included in the Ghost Recon: Wildlands Year 2 pass. Those that purchase it will be able to play the new Ghost Mode and try out the new Ghost War classes a week early. Exclusive customization packs are also included as part of the pass. For everyone else, the new features will be accessible from July 31.

After Special Operation 1 reunited us with Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher, Special Operation 2 will go even further by crossing over with Rainbow Six: Siege. Check out “The Badge” trailer for a teaser.

The nature of the crossover is unknown but like the Splinter Cell mission, it will likely include special Rainbow Six: Siege-themed gear that can be earned. Players will also likely team up with Operators from the multiplayer shooter. It may not be as hyped as Michael Ironside returning to voice Sam Fisher but we’re still excited. Look out for the full reveal on July 23rd.

Ghost Recon Wildlands’ July update, dubbed Special Operation 2, brings a new free PvE mission.

This new Ghost Recon Wildlands mission, much like the Splinter Cell one before it, is a crossover with another Ubisoft game. This time, the mission involves operators from Rainbow Six Siege.

Called Operation Archangel, the mission sees Twitch teaming up with the Ghosts to locate Caveira, after she disappeared without a trace. Caveira is a Siege operator herself. She was once part of the criminal underground in Brazil, and is believed to have returned back to her roots.

The mission takes place in Caimanes, and completing it will net you the Caveira Gloves. Outside of their cosmetic value, the gloves also unlock a special CQC move that forces an enemy to reveal nearby teammates when used against them.


The mission is available in a free update, which released earlier today. It’s a big one, too, at just below 18GB for consoles/Uplay, and 6GB on Steam. The update also adds the new permadeath PvE Ghost Mode, two new PvP classes, a new map, and revamps the Prestige system.

There’s also a host of new cosmetic items, some of which are inspired by Caveira, not to mention new weapons in the store. With the exception of the free Rainbow Six Siege mission, the rest of the content is exclusive to Year 2 season pass holders for a week.
