Tackling the same mission demoed at E3 this past June, the latest Ghost Recon Wildlands gameplay video illustrates a more subtle approach. Using the cover of darkness and a convenient lightning storm, the Ghosts infiltrate their way into the Santa Blanca Cartel stronghold.
Where the E3 demo spiraled out of control and ended in a high-speed chase, this walkthrough comes together to be a bit more methodical. The four players mark their targets, steal a truck, sneak into the base, and manage to escape all without personally getting into too big of a firefight.
Ghost Recon Wildlands will sport a day-night cycle and dynamic weather, both of which have an effect on gameplay. Enemies have different behaviors and activities depending on the time of day, and the weather affects both visibility and sound. When it comes to stealth as a whole, players will be able to make use of tools like sync shots, timing their allies to take out targets, and distraction grenades, useful firecracker type grenades that can lure enemies away. Players can also use a drone to scout the area and release rebels to fight and distract the cartel.
Ghost Recon Wildlands releases on PS4, Xbox One, and PC March 7, 2017.
