Ubisoft has finally revealed their next event in the third major update of Year 2. For those of us who remember the last Ghost Recon game, we will find this familiar. Scott Mitchell and John Kozak will visit the world of Wildlands for a special mission.
It’s a two-part special crossover event, and it starts tomorrow! (11th of December) on all platforms!
Exclusive Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier–themed content will be introduced to the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands main campaign and PvP mode, including two new Future Soldier–inspired Ghost War PvP classes and a PvE mission, Operation Silent Spade. In Operation Silent Spade, Ghost Leader Scott Mitchell calls on Nomad and his team to help rookie John Kozak investigate a plot that links the Santa Blanca Cartel to a nuclear threat. The special challenge is playable solo or with up to four players in co-op.
Upon completing Operation Silent Spade, players will be rewarded with the Optical Camo Backpack, perfect for a stealth approach. In addition to the rewards for completing the challenge, players can further customize and arm their Ghosts with the Silent Spade Pack, which include a weapon and new customization items.
Special Operation 3 will also bring two new Ghost War PvP classes, Vanguard and Sharpshooter, inspired by Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier characters. Vanguard uses sensor grenades to uncover and highlight hidden enemies in the area of effect to his team, while Sharpshooter charges his shots by using his Long Range Specialist ability, which at a full charge enables him to negate the effects of sway and bullet drop. In addition to two new classes, this update will also contain two new PvP maps, Lithium Mine and Outskirts.
Your Year 2 pass will offer a seven-day early access to the two new Ghost War classes at 11th of December along with one exclusive customization pack. (If you do not own a Year 2 pass, you will get the Ghost War classes at 18th of December)
PC players wanting to share the experience with friends can gain Battle Crate rewards including Spec Ops and Ghost War Crates, via the PC Referral Program from 11th of December to 11th of February, 2019. Invited friends who purchase the game will also receive Battle Crate rewards, including one Ghost War Crate and One Spec Ops Crate. The more friends players invite, the more rewards they will receive.
