Narco Road is the inevitable first piece of DLC for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, and it’s got a gaudy new trailer that strikes a very different tone from that we’ve seen in Wildlands so far.
If you’ve yet to get in on all the cartel-smashing fun, check out our Ghost Recon Wildlands guide.
Set to the bouncy beat of Xzibit’s ‘Runway Walk’, the trailer is all sunglasses, gold-plated AKs and monster trucks painted in purple flames. There’s even a spotlit sign that’s a clear reference to the one in the Hollywood hills. It stands in pretty clear contrast to the way that vanilla Wildlands was marketed, with its focus on Bolivia’s beautiful natural scenery and poverty-stricken communities.
Comments on the trailer are also trending to the negative, with series fans lamenting the distance travelled from older Ghost Recon games and making comparisons to GTA and even Need for Speed.
Narco Road will challenge you to infiltrate various gangs led by a new crime lord, El Invisible, said to be a master of drug smuggling. It’ll be available next week, on April 25.
