Ghost Recon Wildlands Announces Year Two of Free, Post-Launch Content

The first update drops this month.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands will be getting a second year of post-launch content announced Ubisoft today. Players should expect new free content for both campaign and Ghost War PvP modes. The first update will release on April 10.

The updates will be divided up into four free major updates called Special Operations. Each Special Operation will revolve around a unique theme and come with updates for the PvE campaign, Ghost War PvP, and other quality of life features.

The first update, Special Operations 1, will come with Teammate Customization that will let players customize their teammate's outfits and kits with all the items the player has unlocked. A PvP update will deliver a new game mode called "Sabotage" which comes with five maps and the first of six new PvP classes for Year 2. And finally there will be a free themed PvE mission and special challenge with exclusive rewards.

You can pick up a Year 2 Pass which will give players a seven-day early access to the six new Year 2 Ghost War PvP classes, an exclusive customization pack, and eight Battle Crates that will reward players customization loot. The pass will retail digitally for $29.99

Our Ghost Recon Wildlands review wrote about the game favorably, awarding the game a 4 out of 5. While we wrote that the quality is a bit "all over the place," overall the "magnificent open world" aspect of the game was simply breathtaking.

Ubisoft has recently found a lot of success with its post-launch releases. The company told investors earlier this year that thanks to how well live service games have done for Ubisoft, that players should expect more live model style games from Ubisoft going forward. You can see it in Rainbow Six Siege's ambitious multi-year post-launch content, you'll find it here in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
