With Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Breakpoint just a few months away, the developers at Ubisoft have one last surprise for players of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands - a brand new free-for-all mode called "Mercenaries." This mode pits eight players against each other and the AI-controlled Cartel, in a fight to survive until extraction arrives. This players vs. players vs. enemies (PvPvE) Mercenaries mode is the final content update planned for Ghost Recon: Wildlands. After playing a match, players will earn the Lone Wolf skin as thanks for trying the mode out.
You can check out the trailer for the new Ghost Recon Wildlands: Mercenaries mode below:
The Mercenaries content update is entirely free and it's available on all platforms starting July 18.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands saw a ton of support even in its final year, including the return of Sam Fisher, voiced by the legend himself, Michael Ironside. This final update is a really cool way to send out the game on a high note out for all the fans and players who have supported it.
While Ghost Recon: Wildlands isn't quite native 4K on Xbox One X, it does have a high resolution with great HDR implementation and other improvements.
