Ghost Recon Wildlands Season Pass and Free Post-Launch PVP Update Announced

on March 2, 2017 3:12 PM

Today, Ubisoft outlined its post-launch plans for Ghost Recon Wildlands, which includes both paid content in the form of a season pass, as well as free updates.

As you would expect, Ubisoft has said that it will continuously pump out content for Ghost Recon Wildlands based on fan feedback via free updates. Beyond the free updates, Ubisoft also announced additional post-launch content in the form of a season pass, which comes with two “major” expansions: Narco Road and Fallen Ghosts. 

Narco Road will be the first of these two expansions. The following overview of it is provided:

The game’s first major expansion will give you the full spectrum of narco life, as you tear through Bolivia using new vehicles in a series of fast-paced missions. Expect to face the most insane adversaries as you infiltrate three smuggling gangs and take out their leaders one by one until you reach the mastermind: El Invisible.

Along with its more eccentric tone, this new adventure will include more than a dozen new missions across four provinces, new vehicles, new weapons skins, and side activities, with everything being entirely playable in solo and in four-player co-op. Season pass owners will be able to access this paid content one week early.

Ubisoft has said to expect further details on the DLC the closer it draws to its unannounced release date.

The game’s second expansion, Fallen Ghosts, is provided with the following, slightly less informative, overview:

With Fallen Ghosts, get ready for your Spec Ops skills to be put to the test! After your chopper is shot down during an evacuation mission, your squad will be forced to adapt as you are tracked down by Los Extranjeros, an elite group of ruthless mercenaries. Fortunately, new weapons and skills will help you and your friends find the strength to escape! As with Narco Road, season pass owners will be able to access this paid content one week early.

    • Santa Blanca Ghost Pack: With a Santa Blanca-inspired outfit, players can mimic their style without joining their ranks. This pack also unlocks the Santa Blanca golden M1911, customized with engravings and the mark of the cartel, for players to unleash chaos on the cartel.

Lastly, Season Pass holders will get to play the new expansions a week before everyone else can buy them.
