Ubisoft and Amazon to Create Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within The Cartel

01/12/2017 09:00 AM

Ubisoft is teaming up with Amazon and Twitch to create a special 30-minute promotional live-action story based on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, called War Within The Cartel.

Watch the video below for an insider’s glimpse of the recording sessions that took place in Los Angeles, California. Learn more about Alain and the composing process for the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands soundtrack by reading the interview below!

Premiering on 02.16.17, War Within the Cartel follows various high-ranking members of the Santa Blanca drug cartel - responsible for turning the Bolivia of Ghost Recon Wildlands into a narco-state - including El Muro (head of security), El Yayo (head of production), Nidia Flores (head of operations), El Cardenal (head of influence), and El Sueño, the group's ruthless leader. The action packed story culminates in the events leading up to the beginning of the epic new open world tactical shooter game Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, as an elite Special Forces unit is called in to dismantle the cartel and restore law and order in Bolivia.

Helming War Within The Cartel is Executive Producer Roberto Orci (screenwriter on Star Trek, Transformers, and The Amazing Spider-Man), who has enlisted the talents of Grammy-award winning artist T.I., director Avi Youbian (The Walking Dead, Tainted Love), as well as scriptwriters Evan Greene, Noam Dromi (Dolphin Tale), and Ryan Landels (Jem and the Holograms). Legion of Creatives, the LA-based digital studio producing War Within The Cartel, has also brought in military specialists, aviation experts, and other experts to ensure a degree of realism that effects current cartel conflicts.

“Drug cartels have become an incredibly hot topic in both real-world news and pop culture entertainment. We pride ourselves in making sure that the characters, action, and environment of War Within The Cartel looks and feels like something ripped right from the headlines,” said Orci.

On 02.16.17, War Within The Cartel will be streamed first on Twitch at www.twitch.tv/ubisoft and will then become available on-demand on the Amazon Prime Video service.
