‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ News: Games Fluidity Disrupts Favored Play Style; Helpful Tips On Staying Alive BaredBy Pretty Abegail Pacilan, UniversityHerald Reporter
The tenth installment in the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon franchise "Ghost Recon Wildlands" boasts of its being the biggest open world games that Ubisoft has ever published. However, its new level of freedom and game's fluidity disrupts the favored play style and approaches fans love from previous games.
Wildlands posed a very different type of Ghost Recon game, to the point that that the player feels like it does not belong to the series, IGN reported. Although, fundamentals are still present like the squad of four grunts, the sync shot and smattering tactics, fans noted the shift to an open world has had much impact than just the size of the map.
The new Ghost Recon encourages chaotic play style as it employs open multiple missions available any time. The freedom to tackle objectives using any method and any direction players may choose from are ingredients of a muddled recipe for the game.
Nonetheless, it penalizes the player from playing in such a way. As "Ghost Recon Wildlands" is an open world tactical shooter video game, ways of getting the missions done the soonest possible time may lure players to do just so but jumping into the next objective just like using and flying helicopters will result to mission failure.
Failing missions will not be about obtaining civilian casualties which is unacceptable but the enemy is well-equipped and smart that it should not be underestimated. It is advised that a back-up should be called including armored and air support to help in the success of the mission.
By road, air, and by see, vehicles have always been a part of Ghost Recon especially in Wildlands. Acquiring an armored car and plane is the best way of getting around. Wildlands is set in Bolivia, so threats of Santa Blanca and Unidad is never far away. The source advised that the best chance of survival is to move fast and quietly even on foot especially that enemy soldiers patrol the roads and dirt tracks and open fire when they spot the player.
It is worth noting that a closed beta will run from Feb. 3-6 that will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, Game Spot reported. Gamers are encouraged to sign for the closed beta but it is not a guarantee that they will be able to get it in. Conversely, players who are lucky enough can invite up to three players on the same platform to the beta.
