Ghost Recon Wildlands Adds New Story Content Starring The Punisher's Jon Bernthal

Two years later, Wildlands is continuing its story in a big way.

Remember Ghost Recon Wildlands? Ubisoft open-world cooperative shooter came out in March 2017, but the publisher's internal studios have been dutifully updating it with new content since then. And they're not done yet.

Today, Ubisoft announced Operation Oracle, a new narrative story arc coming to Wildlands. It'll be comprised of two free missions, introducing players to a new character in the Ghost Recon universe. The Ghosts are dispatched to find an engineer taken hostage by the Unidad cartel, only to run into Cole D. Walker, a Ghost Team Leader portrayed by Punisher and The Walking Dead actor Jon Bernthal. The new missions go live on May 2.

To celebrate Operation Oracle, Ghost Recon Wildlands will be free to play from May 2 to May 5. During the free period, players will have access to the entire game, including Operation Oracle. All progress during the free period will be carried over if players purchase Wildlands.

Are we in for another sequel in the Ghost Recon franchise? This story update comes after Ubisoft finished all the Year 2 updates for Ghost Recon Wildlands. It seems like a bit much to get Jon Bernthal to portray a new character for just two missions. Perhaps this is a tease for a forthcoming game, with Bernthal playing a larger role in that title? With E3 2019 around the corner, I guess we'll see.
