Don't be mean to cats. Ubisoft released a new live-action trailer for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands that features a cat, a red dot, and dead gang-bangers.
This live-action trailer takes place in the hideout of three poker playing gang members. There happens to be a cat chasing around a suspicious red dot that appears throughout the room. You can guess that the red dot isn't from a dinky laser pointer but from a high-powered sniper rifle used by a marksman with a sense of humor.
Benoit Martinez, lead artist and technical art director at Ubisoft, explains why they chose Bolivia as the backdrop for their open-world.
The biggest challenge was to define our world. We went to Bolivia for a couple of weeks and dispatched the team between the north, south, east, and west regions of the country. We were everywhere, from the Altiplano to the death road, jungle, islands, and everything in between. And to give you an idea of the dedication it takes to venture onto Bolivia’s death road, the BBC called it the “world’s most dangerous road” in 2006.
Unlike previous franchise entries, there won't be any competitive multiplayer. The focus will be entirely on the campaign, which can be played cooperatively up to four players online. Alternatively, players may choose to go entirely solo and give orders to the AI controlled squadmates.
The campaign features a massive open world with nine different types of terrain (mountains, deserts, forest, even salt flats) as well as dynamic weather and a day/night cycle. Like in most open world games, it will be possible to level up and improve the squad's equipment; players may even build relationships with NPCs and those will impact the world.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands comes March 7th for Xbox One, PC and Playstation 4. You can still register for the beta of Ghost Recon Wildlands.
