Title Update 3: Patch notes

12/04/2017 09:00 AM

Hello Ghosts,

Here are the patch notes for Title Update 3, available on April 12th around 8am UTC for consoles and on Friday morning for PC. As with the previous patch, we will have a small maintenance in order to update our servers to this new version. The patch size will be up to 8.4 GB on consoles and up to 6.5 GB on PC, depending on your client and installed version; an in-game notification will let you know when it’s available. Players in game will need to reboot the game to apply the patch. Please remember that in order to play co-op, all players will need to have the same version of the game.

This latest update focuses on improvements on game stability and bug fixing but we’ve also been gathering player feedback about certain issues and implemented changes in order to improve the user experience. For example, we fixed the Kingslayer files counter on the tacmap for the Media Luna and Inca Camina regions for those who are collecting every piece of intel around the map. We fixed a rare issue that left some players with their XP bars stuck at a certain level. XP boosters will now display the number of hours they last, and players who reported problems unlocking intel and missions while playing in co-op should have a smoother experience now. Additionally, we also addressed the reports of players stating the ADV suppressor ability wasn’t working properly for them.

Title Update 3 also marks the beginning of a much requested community feature: we are glad to introduce the first Live Season Challenges for Ghost Recon Wildlands! As we mentioned in our post-launch article, this feature will add new content for those of you who are eager to return to Bolivia to keep your Ghosts and Task Forces active. You will receive weekly orders to complete different objectives, some which can be completed playing solo and some which will require the help of the members of your Task Force or even the collaboration of the whole Ghost Recon community. If you meet the requirements to complete each challenge, you will be able to unlock various seasonal rewards, so don’t miss out!

If you want to know more about the Live Season Challenges, you can find them in the game menu once the patch is downloaded and you are deployed in-game. Please remember you need to be online to progress through the Live Season Challenges and get the rewards. The first 6 weeks are related to Unidad forces, but that’s all the intel we can give you for now. If you want more info, you can check our article on Live Season Challenges following this link. Good hunting, Ghosts!

Aside from these changes, we have also heard your feedback regarding the radio and dialogue between the Ghosts, so we made some changes to improve the narrative content delivery for players. The radio content randomization has been optimized, so now you should be able to listen to a variety of dialogues and songs every time you enter a car or are near a radio. On top of that, we made adjustments regarding the dialogues between AI teammates and the conversations related to missions so that they don’t repeat unnecessarily after they have been played.

For more information, here is the detailed list of fixes and improvements, with the PC specific ones at the end:
