Ghost Recon Wildlands Shows Off Special Ops 4 PvE Guerrilla Mode, New PvP Maps, and More
Last week Ubisoft announced Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 4, the game’s last big Year 2 update. The initial Special Ops 4 reveal left some details vague, but now Ubisoft has fully unveiled the game’s new PvP Guerrilla mode, PvP Ghost War maps and class, and more! Sadly, it seems this season won’t have a special crossover theme -- Special Operation 1 guest-starred Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell fame, Special Operation 2 was Rainbow Six Siege themed, and Special Operation 3 was Future Soldier themed. That said, Wildlands players are still getting a solid amount of new content. Check out the Special Operations 4 trailer, below.
Free PvE Mode: Guerrilla
Test your endurance with our brand new PvE mode: Guerrilla. In Guerrilla Mode you and up to 4 friends will face waves of Cartel and Unidad members. You will earn XP, Tier points, and Prestige Credits for completing waves. Completing all 25 waves for the first time will also grant you an exclusive gear set.
