Ghost Recon Wildlands signs out with the PvPvE Mercenaries mode

With its sequel, Breakpoint, just a few months off, Ubisoft have one last gift for Ghost Recon Wildlands players that stuck around, launching free on July 18th. Mercenaries is an eight-player multiplayer mode and a radical departure from the regular game. Part survival challenge, part mini battle royale (with respawns), it reminds me of Survival mode from The Division, but on a much larger scale.…

Ubisoft continue to claim their games don’t have political stances, are still wrong

Ubisoft, who make RPGs about a 3000-year-long battle between freedom and order, FPSs about liberating occupied lands, and military shooters so jingoistic they cause governmental complaints, have been arguing for a long time that their games aren’t political. Yesterday, they posted an interview with Tommy Francois, vice president of editorial, in an attempt to clarify their position. It did not help.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint announced, a less morally shaky sequel to Wildlands

A fictional Pacific archipelago, a mega-corporation and an army of killbot-assisted high-tech mercs. Ghost Recon Breakpoint, announced today and out on October 4th, looks largely like we expected from Ubisoft's leak last night. A sequel to sandbox shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands, trading the ethically sketchy 'US covert ops fighting the drug war' setting for a more videogamey near-future scenario. As with its predecessor, it's a…

Alleged Ghost Recon Breakpoint details leaked, out October 4th

Ubisoft's attempts to drum up hype for a Ghost Recon announcement tomorrow have been a tad undermined by their own store back-end, revealing the game's title: Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Pre-order details for a collector's edition of the game were snapped and posted on Reddit, although have since been removed. If the leak is accurate, then Breakpoint will continue the story started by the latest Ghost Recon Wildlands DLC mission,…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Sam Fisher sneaks into Ghost Recon Wildlands this week

Poor Sam Fisher really deserves a break, but Ubisoft's grey and grumpy stealth agent is coming back via Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands this week. Confirming the first operation of Year 2 as being Splinter Cell themed, Fisher is going to be teaming up with the Ghosts to stop a rogue CIA agent from selling intel to the Bolivian cartels. Wildlands' rules of engagement being…

Ghost Recon Wildlands commits to a 2nd year of updates

Good, bad or otherwise, you can't keep an online, service-focused Ubigame down. Following in the footsteps of the likes of Rainbow Six Siege and For Honor, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is the latest in the publisher's stable of multiplayer games to be signed on for a second season's worth of content updates. Much of it looks to be free, which is always a reasonable price.

Tom Clancy vs. Predator: Wildlands introduces movie monster

Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Wildlands this week introduces the Predator to the sandbox stealth-o-shooter. Yes, Predator, like the movies about headhunting aliens. Players will get to fight a Predator in a special challenge as well collect and use Predator items. As odd as this may be, it does make Wildlands more interesting to me as I'll take a monster mash over oh-so-serious imperialist fantasy any day.…

Ghost Recon Wildlands PvP open beta now preloading

While it is a wailing shame that the name 'Ghost War' has been claimed by a game which features not one single spectre, apparition, manifestation, phantasm, or g-g-g-ghost!, introducing competitive multiplayer to the sandbox world of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] could turn out interesting. The 4v4 team deathmatch mode Ghost War will hit Ubisoft's open-world imperialism 'em up sometime this autumn, but…

If rolling around invading a country with the lads isn't enough japery for you, you'll be able to team up to shoot a squad of four rival blokes. With the scale, vehicles, and different playstyles…

Wildlands has new mens to shoots in Fallen Ghosts DLC

War on drugs simulator Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] is getting its second expansion on June 6. In Fallen Ghosts you fight against a well-equipped band of nasty folk called Los Extranjeros ("the Foreigners"), who rise out of the brewing civil war that has erupted after you’ve taken down the game’s original baddies, the Santa Blanca cartel. It’s almost as if sending four gung-ho gringos…

Rumour: Vivendi making another play to acquire Ubisoft

Vivendi, former parent company of Activision and Blizzard, have been trying to snaffle up fellow French firm Ubisoft for several years now, against the latter's own wishes. That's what they call a hostile takeover, kids. And now they've signalled that they're making a move to acquire the whole kit and kaboodle this year.

Radio silence: Ghost Recon Wildlands launches big patch

Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands [offiical site] has inhaled a big bag of fixes and tweaks today with the release of Title Update 2. They range from fixing the framerate while the game saves to adding an option to mute every radio in the game. Sure, Wildlands might be a small spin on an increasingly tired formula but it is one with co-op, and…

Ghost Recon Wildlands’ unlock times, Nvidia bits, government complaints, and more

With Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] unlocking tonight, here's a newsblast rounding up a few odds and ends: 1) We shan't tell you Wot We Think at launch, as we only received code today 2) We will aim (aim, like aiming a gun) to have something up as soon as possible and a review by the end of the week 3) Pre-loading…

Ghost Recon Wildlands post-launch plans include PvP mode and a big dad

While Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] might seem sooo serious about its imperialist fantasy, apparently Ubisoft are saving some cracking japes for DLC. A series of missions will have players poke at something called 'The Unidad Conspiracy', which I can only imagine is a supernatural entity composed of hundreds of dads twisted and merged into one flesh. Clad in a vast cardigan,…

Boo! Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta has started

We told you when it was coming, then we told you it was preloading, and now here I am telling you that it's started. Why? Why is this on me?…

All you RPS historical reenactors out there: you can now pre-load the open beta client for Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] to prepare for recreating Brendan and Graham's closed beta adventures. But who plays Graham and who plays Brendan? Which one of you feel hopeful about the squad-based stealth-o-shooter and who will get a bit bored? Who plays Scottish and who does Irish? You can…

Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta starts Feb 23, tontos

Graham and I have already shot drugmen in the head in perfect sync when we played the closed beta of Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] together. But there was only two of us. What we really needed were some friends – and now it looks like we’ll get thousands! The open beta is soon going to be available to anyone who wants to crack skulls…
