Ghost Recon Wildlands is Getting a New PvE Mission, PvP Content, and Photo Mode Next Week


Ghost Recon Wildlands‘ Special Operations 3 update arrives next week for Year 2 Pass owners. Like past Special Operations, Ubisoft is promising the usual PvE mission, PvP additions, and standard array of cosmetic items, as well as a new Photo Mode.

Special Operations 3 is part of Ghost Recon Wildlands’ Year 2 content, which consists of four free batches of stuff. Previous updates featured crossovers with other Ubisoft franchises – Special Operations 1 featured Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell fame, and Special Operations 2 was Rainbow Six Siege themed. Will Special Operations 3 also feature some sort of crossover? Ubisoft hasn’t revealed anything yet, but it’s possible, as we don’t have a trailer or any assets for this Operation just yet. Here's a full rundown of Special Operations 3's content:

Roller Champions Kickoff Season Begins on May 25

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands’ third free major update for the second year of post-launch conten, Special Operation 3, will contain a brand-new PvE mission, new PvP maps and classes, a new Photo Mode, as well as improvements to the Prestige Economy based on community feedback.

  • PvE Mission and Rewards: Special Operation 3 will contain a free PvE mission and other rewards.

Most of the Special Operations 3 content (with the exception of cosmetic stuff) is free, although Year 2 Pass owners will have one-week early access. Year 2 Pass owners also get access to one exclusive customization pack. The Year 2 Pass costs $25.
