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…

Steam Charts: NieR hit

Alec is away this week. I fear that if he can't find a wifi signal on his travels he might resort to haruspicy to try and find the truths contained within the weekly Steam charts. These round-ups of the ten games with the most cumulative sales over the past week are his obsession and his curse. This week: while the cat's away...

These are the ten games with the most cumulative sales over the past week. This week: DON'T SHOOT THE MESSENGER.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands review

Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] is Ubisoft’s latest open-world co-op narco war. I played some of it during the beta, along with Graham, and I came out of it feeling like a tub of old bath water. Lukewarm and slightly dirty. I only knew for certain that I actively disliked it when I was stricken down by one of its insta-fail stealth missions. Cast away…

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

You tell me: why am I your outboard memory? Why do you need me, today, to remind you that the four-day open beta test for sandbox stealth-o-shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] is now live? 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.

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…

Ghost Recon Wildlands taps The Cartel’s writers to punch up its narco-state playground

The Cartel's Don Winslow (he wrote the novel) and The Cartel's Shane Salerno (he's doing the movie adaptation) have been announced as writers on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site]. The narrative will apparently be "cartel-themed" which, I mean, sure. I'd actually forgotten that the game isn't out yet as I think I saw a version of it at E3 in 2015 (my notes…

Good Coop, Bad Coop: Ghost Recon Wildlands

Good Coop, Bad Coop is our series in which Graham and Brendan will be bonding in co-operative games through teamwork, friendship and shared trauma. This time, the Bolivian druglands of the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta. Graham: Wildlands isn't out yet, but we finagled our way into this past weekend's closed beta so that we could contribute in the war on drugs. My impression is…

Ghost Recon Wildlands trailer shows AI teamwork

My favourite part of Far Cry 4, a game I liked very much, was its co-operative mode in which you and a friend could take on the outposts and forts of the open world. I am therefore excited for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site], which seems to be entirely about tackling larger fort-like compounds in Bolivia in up to four-player co-op. There's a…

The mewling pup that goes by the name 2017 will come into the world soon and we must prepare ourselves for its arrival. Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature,…

Lots Of Stealthy Murder In Ghost Recon Wildlands Trailer

Oye! Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] has a new 12-minute trailer showing off a stealthy night-time mission. We last saw Ubisoft’s latest Clancy-em-up at E3 when they went through the same level during the daytime in a slightly louder and more explosive manner. I am happy to report that this one is much quieter. And by that I mean there is no phony banter and…

Inside Ubisoft’s Dedicated Driving Team

There are strange things going on with the buggy I’m driving. I’m in a field, somewhere in Ghost Recon: Wildlands’ digital Bolivia, and the vehicle is transforming while I drive it. The power, suspension, steering – everything’s changing. It’s not a bug. Next to me, the driving team at Ubisoft Reflections are fiddling with my poor ride using their vehicle editing tool, which lamentably doesn’t…

Gamescom 2016: The Games We Most Want To See

E3 2016 has been finished for a couple of weeks, giving us time to wash the taste of LA smog from our mouths and reflect upon the games we saw there. This seems like a good time to talk about what we want to see from those games next, when they no doubt appear at Gamescom 2016 in August. What games are we most hoping…

Great Outdoors: Hands On With Ghost Recon Wildlands

Ghost Recon: Wildlands [official site] captured the scale of its outdoor environments well enough to distract me completely from the noise and lights of E3’s gargantuan South Hall. Lying prone on a hill, scanning an enemy encampment in the valley below, I was reminded of a game I haven’t thought about for a long time. Delta Force, released by NovaLogic back in the late nineties,…

Hype Check: Debunking E3’s Marketing

If you judged each of E3 2016's conferences by the volcanic applause following each announcement, no matter how minuscule or massive, then you probably think everything the developers said was written by God himself on a stone script. But you're smarter than that. I know you are. So, in continuation of our 'anti-E3' coverage, here are some of the moments when the creators and executives…
