Ghost Recon Wildlands Trailer Teases New Rainbow Six Siege Crossover Event

Ghost meets Rainbow.

Ubisoft released a new trailer today for the upcoming Special Operations 2 free update coming Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands. Like the first Special Operations that included a crossover with Ubisoft's Splinter Cell, the next Special Operations looks like it will feature a crossover with Rainbow Six Siege.

The trailer talks about the various badges earned in Ghost Recon Wildlands for accomplishing certain milestones. These badges reference previous crossovers like the Predator event and Sam Fisher event from the first free Special Operations, but Ubisoft also teases their next crossover via a badge reveal: showing off the Rainbow Six insignia.

Ubisoft says that the full trailer for the Special Operations 2 crossover with Rainbow Six Siege will be up next week on July 23. We can probably expect to see how the Ghost Recon team and Rainbow Six team comes together in Bolivia (presumably where Wildlands is set) and what mission the two teams are working on together.

The last Special Operations story mission saw Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell fame coming down to Bolivia and teaming up with the Ghost Recon team for a deep cover, espionage mission. Considering Rainbow Six Siege boasts a big roster of international characters, it'll be interesting to see how this crossover plays out from a story perspective.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 2 update also brings new additions to the Wildlands' PvP and PvE modes. A new PvE Ghost Mode is coming with the update and will include permadeath, realistic ammo capacity, and other custom rules that make for a more realistic, and challenging experience. In PvP Ghost War, new emotes and victory poses will be added to enhance spectator engagement.

Ubisoft has seen tremendous success with post-launch content for games like Ghost Recon Wildlands and Rainbow Six Siege. Revenue for DLC has driven first quarter Ubisoft profits to record levels and post-launch content is now a major part of Ubisoft's marketing strategy.
