Ghost Recon Wildlands is a bag of fun
Ghost Recon Wildlands was released March the 7th and has been on my radar for a long time. Now after around 24 hours of game time, I can say it is a lot of fun. You get the most out of it playing coop but the single player is great. The huge open world map is rather impressive and offers many locations to explore.
Side note thou, it’s not a tactical shooter like ARMA, but does have some elements of it. It seems to be aimed more for the casual player where you can explore and advance even if you “screw up” the mission a bit. That is not a bad thing, just different. This game could work really good with a Battle Royale style game mode.
As described on Wiki:
The game takes place in Bolivia in July 2019. The country has become increasingly unstable as the Santa Blanca, a previously minor Mexican drug cartel, gains more power and influence within the country to the point where Bolivia has become a narco-state and the world’s largest producer of cocaine. The rise in power of this drug cartel concerns the United States Government, as Santa Blanca’s influence has begun to spread beyond Bolivia. The last straw comes when a bomb targets the U.S. embassy in La Paz and its intended target, DEA agent Ricardo “Ricky” Sandoval, is kidnapped, tortured and then killed by the Santa Blanca. As a result, the United States initiates Operation Kingslayer, a joint operation between the CIA, DEA, and JSOC. The United States Army dispatches a fireteam of elite special operations unit called “Ghosts” to destroy the cartel and reveal the connection between Santa Blanca and the local government. The Ghost team consist of Ghost Leader “Nomad”, Tactical Gunner “Midas”, Engineer “Holt”, Sniper “Weaver”. The Ghosts individually make their own way into Bolivia.
