Ghost Recon Wildlands' New Free DLC Adds Emotes, Victory Poses and More

A new Permadeath PvE mode is also coming with the update.

The second free Special Operations is coming to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands on July 24. Titles Special Operation 2, the new update brings major changes and a new mode to Ghost Recon Wildlands and is part of Ubisoft's Year Two slate of content.

The update comes with a new PvE experience called Ghost Mode. Players can run either solo or co-op campaigns where they take on the Santa Blanca Cartel, but under intense new rulesets. Permadeath and Real Reloading (meaning if you reload with a partially full clip, you'll lose those bullets forever) add to the sense of realism, while loadouts will be limited to one main weapon and one handgun. Friendly fire, limited gear management, and true solo modes are also included.

New additions are also coming to the Ghost War PvP mode such as a new free-roam camera tool for spectators, two new PvP classes and maps, ranked mode for league standings, a post-match celebration screen, and social items like emotes, voices lines, and victory poses.

Special Operations 2 is the second free content update to Ghost Recons Wildlands after Special Operations 1. The first free update included PvP and PvE updates as well as a special crossover mission featuring Sam Fisher from Ubisoft's Splinter Cell series.

You can pick up a Ghost Reacon Wildlands Year 2 Pass for $29.99 which includes seven-day early access to Ghost Mode and the two new Ghost War classes. Ubisoft recently announced record first quarter profits thanks to ambitious post-release DLC strategies like the one you're seeing now for Ghost Recon Wildlands and Rainbow Six Siege.
