Today, Ubisoft announced Special Operation 3 for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, the third free major update for the second year of post-launch content. Special Operation 3 will be released on December 11 on all platforms. The update 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.
Year 2 Pass owners will receive seven-day early access to the two new Ghost War classes, along with one exclusive customization pack. Everyone else will be able to access the new Ghost War classes starting December 18.
A new photo mode is a welcome addition as it will allow players to capture some of their most interesting and exciting moments in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. We’re curious if that mode will only work in single-player modes, or if it can also be used to get some sick shots of your squad in action.
In addition to the introduction of Photo Mode, Special Operation 3 will not only expand on the game’s PvE experience by introducing a new themed-mission and rewards but also bring new PvP features including:
- Two new PvP classes will be added, inspired by the Special Operation 3 themed-mission
- Two new PvP maps
Based on community feedback there will be improvements and new content coming to the Store. More than 90 new items will be added, including a new pack themed for Special Operation 3. Changes to the Prestige Economy are also planned.
If you have friends who have yet to play Ghost Recon: Wildlands, then now is a great time to convince them.
PC players wanting to share the experience of the Wildlands with friends can gain Battle Crate rewards including Spec Ops and Ghost War Crates, via the PC Referral Program from December 11 – February 11, 2019. Invited friends who purchase the game will also receive a Battle Crate reward. The more friends players invite, the more rewards they will receive.
Special Operation 3 will be available on all platforms on December 11 for all Year 2 Pass owners, and on December 18 for everyone else.
