Ubisoft has revealed the map for for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands — it’s largest ever open-world action game. While details about how big exactly the map is still haven’t been divulged, we at least know what it looks like.
The game takes place in Bolivia, a landlocked country in western-central South America. The geography of Bolivia varies greatly depending on where you go in the country: to the West you will find the peaks of the Andes mountain, while to the east you will find lowlands situated within the Amazon Basin.
Ubisoft, in one of the two images that reveals the map, says it is “the most beautiful and dangerous place on earth.” Specifically the map will be divided into 21 different regions, featuring 26 bosses and 11 different biomes. The biomes include: Arid Mountains, Altipland, Canyon, Forest Valley, Green Lands, Highlands, Jungle, Lake and Waterfall, Salar, Swamp, and Yungas.
As for the regions, each will contain its own major towns and hamlets, and unique transportation methods. Further, each region will have its own industry and way of life as well.
Benoit Martinez, the game’s lead artist and technical art director went on to reveal to Polygon that the games NPC will have their own agendas, and will actually “really live in the world.” Martinez added:
“They go to bed at night. They get up. They go to work. Whether or not you interact with them or not, they live their own life.”
Suffice to say, this feature will surely play a part into making each region feel unique. Beyond the NPCs, you can also (obviously) expect each region to be distinctive in regards to what types of animals, topography, etc., it has.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is set to release for PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 7, 2017. For our previous coverage on the title: click here.
