Ghost Recon: Wildlands is an open-world, third-person shooter developed by Ubisoft Paris. Set in Bolivia, the game puts the player in the shoes of an elite special forces operative tasked with destroying Santa Blanca, a massive drug cartel that is plunging the country into chaos. It is said to be one of the largest open world games from the company yet, featuring diverse South American landscapes ranging from mountains and deserts to rainforests.
The game has 100 missions which can be completed in any order and using different approaches such as stealthy infiltration, long-range sniping, or frontal assault. The player can tackle them with the assistance of an AI squad or alongside their friends; Wildlands supports up to four-player co-op with seamless drop-in, drop-out play. There is a large variety of vehicles (motorcycles, quad bikes, helicopters, etc.) used during missions as well as free roam.
