Released back in March, Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands quickly became one of the top-selling games of the year and has steadily expanded what players can do with new updates, including the most recent update that may be one of the game’s biggest yet.

Title Update 5 for Ghost Recon: Wildlands has been released across consoles and PC, with the new update introducing a variety of bug fixes and other updates, while also providing some new content and features for players to enjoy.

Specifically, some of the big changes with the title update include the introduction of Tier 1 Mode, which is a new difficulty option that alters the way that players level up and provides Tier Points that players can then use to level up.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC – you can check out the full patch notes for Title Update 5 below:
