Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is back in the spotlight after an intense E3 week full of announcements and revelations. It was the right time to show the world our ambitions for the game, and to share more development insights.
Now that the E3 madness is finally over, you can read and watch videos from team members and Ubisoft Star Players about Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.
First, our Lead Game Designer, Dominic Butler, was back on camera to share his thoughts about the development and his work on the game. “We have 60 different vehicle types: civilian vehicles, army vehicles, boats, bikes, buggies, planes, helicopters… the stuff you would expect to find in a world like this, and the cool thing is you get to play with all of it. There are no restrictions. You play the way you want.”
Dominic was later joined by two Ubisoft Star Players, Punjistick and ITK5, who discussed their impressions about the demo they had the opportunity to play and shed some light on their interactions with the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon team.
This was not the only initiative we took part in: the teams of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and Tom Clancy’s The Division joined forces during E3 to bring you the Ubisoft Special Ops Event--a master class where the developers revealed some interesting details about the most recent games in the Tom Clancy franchise.
Narrative Director Sam Strachman took the stage to talk about the research work the team did to build a realistic narrative. “We talked to a ton of researchers, experts, journalists, authors, bloggers… everyone we possibly could. That led us to create all the different cartel characters.” Sam shared valuable insight on the process they followed to capture the beauty and the dangers of the Bolivian lands, and showed footage of the different locations you’ll be able to visit in the final game.
Sam Strachman also had the opportunity to talk about the mysterious nature of the Ghosts: “For them, credit is failure. These are not the kind of guys who go into a mission and then they go talk on CNN. Nobody knows they exist,” he said. This was also the occasion to cover some details about player customization and the much-awaited comeback of the Gunsmith.

Ghost Recon Wildlands will be available March 7, 2017, on PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, and PC.
