Narco Road Starter Guide
04/18/2017 10:00 AM
Ghost Recon Wildlands just got bigger with the addition of Narco Road, a new expansion that sends the Ghosts undercover as mercenaries working for the Santa Blanca. You will also discover a new side of the cartel as the Santa Blanca begin working with various smuggling gangs – Los Kamikazes, the Death Riders, and Los Jinetes Locos – who fight for fame and territory against a rival cartel, Los Sin Almas. With a larger-than-life vibe and an extreme-motorsports aesthetic, this is a new way to experience Ghost Recon Wildlands – and with that in mind, here are a few things you should know going in.
DON’T SWEAT YOUR PROGRESS
Narco Road’s campaign is separate from the “main” game. Rather than continuing with your existing character (with whom you can continue exploring the main campaign and taking on weekly challenges), you’ll create a new Ghost who starts out at level 20, with most of his or her skills already leveled up.
Be sure to take a look to find out what you can and can’t do, though, because some familiar skills and perks – the underbarrel grenade launcher, for instance – aren’t available by default. Instead, you’ll unlock them in a slightly different way, by earning and finding medals tied to specific skill types.
In the meantime, you will still be able to play the main campaign missions and complete the weekly live season challenges with your main character without having your progress affected by your advancement in Narco Road.
GO ANYWHERE, RIGHT FROM THE START
Narco Road’s open world is divided into four huge territories, each containing several Bolivian provinces lorded over by a different gang. When you start Narco Road, all of the fast-travel points are available immediately – so if you want to take a break from running jobs for the first gang you encounter, the adrenaline-obsessed Kamikazes, you can hop over to a different territory and ingratiate yourself with, say, the old-school Death Riders biker gang and their flaming-motorbike-riding leader.
