Ghost Recon Wildlands returns with new trailer; still loud, angry and full of beards

Ghost Recon Wildlands

Ghost Recon Wildlands’ new trailer gives us another glimpse at its varied sandbox, from snow-swept mountains to dense jungles, along with a look at some in-game action –  all of it narrated over by Sergeant McBeardygruffvoice.

The new trailer is all about the Ghosts, what they do (kill people), how they do it (with guns) and where they do it (bloody everywhere).

Wildlands – playable entirely on your own or in up to four-player co-op – sends your group behind enemy lines and asks you to dismantle a Bolivian drug cartel. Do you want to put a bullet in the heads of the cartel generals (yes) or do you want to use them to get more intel (probably not) – we’re promised plenty of choice in how you approach the open-world’s varied missions.

“As part of the Tom Clancy franchise, authenticity is one of the key pillars which will bring the Wildlands to life in our latest installment in the franchise,” said Eric Couzian, creative director on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.

“Our goal has been to build the Ghosts as credible Spec Ops, so players have a range of options in facing not only the deadly cartels, but also the roughness of the multifaceted Bolivian landscape. Ghosts are survivors and hunters, they can blend in all sorts of environments, leaving no trace except in the heads of their terrified enemies. We want players to feel this power.”

You can tell they’re striving for authenticity – that’s why the spec ops dudes have long beards. As we learned from EA with the Medal of Honor reboot: authenticity is king. Here’s the new trailer:
