His time as the Punisher may be over for now, but Jon Bernthal will be taking that gruff, take-no-prisoners attitude to Ghost Recon Wildlands as the main character in the Operation Oracle update. Bernthal plays Major Cole D. Walker, another Ghost Team Leader who doesn’t seem to play by the rules. If you’ve been missing Bernthal’s gravely voice, be sure to watch the trailer below.

Operation Oracle is a free update for Ghost Recon. It gives players two brand-new missions full of mystery and intrigue. In the trailer, we see Walker removing his dog tags, seemingly to indicate that he has gone rogue from the Ghost Team. This is further implied by Ubisoft’s blog post which says that the Major has “his own agenda”.

The blog post also says that information uncovered in Operation Oracle “will redefine loyalty”. It’s not official, but given the name recognition of an actor like Bernthal, I doubt they just brought him in for one update. This appears to be the beginning of a bigger story, especially with the post claiming that the events of Operation Oracle “might very well set the scene for the future”.

As a huge Jon Bernthal fan, the thought of him being a part of a larger Ghost Recon story is very exciting. He’s an excellent actor whose past characters fit well in this universe. Ubisoft has been doing a great job of supporting their games well after release. Thus, my hopes are high that this is just the beginning of an arc led by Bernthal.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands: Operation Oracle will be available for free on May 2 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
