Ubisoft has announced the next Special Operation is coming to Ghost Recon: Wildlands on February 27. Special Operation 4 will introduce new PvP and PvE content, as well as several community-requested features.
A brand-new PvE mode is included in Special Operation 4, although Ubisoft hasn’t yet revealed exact details for it other than that it would «test your endurance.» In a blog post, the developer did say that completing the mode for the first time will unlock a new outfit, and that more information would be shared «soon.» On the PvP side of things, Ghost War multiplayer will be getting a new class in Special Operation 4, as well as two additional maps. The new Ghost War class will be exclusive to Year 2 Pass holders for a week, before going live for everyone else on March 6.
Several community-requested features will go live in Special Operation 4 as well. You’ll now be able to change the time of day in the solo campaign. Both Battle and Prestige Crates have been updated, with all voice lines and several emotes moving from the former to the latter. Prestige Crates will also drop higher rarity items more often. A new browser will allow you to look through custom matches based on your selected criteria. Challenges will also have increased Prestige Credit rewards, and two new PvP events are being added to the pool.
In our Ghost Recon: Wildlands review, Miguel Concepcion gave the game a 7/10, writing, «As only the second open world game in the Clancyverse, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a middlingly safe tactical shooter and a slightly wasted opportunity given the ambitious scope of its seemingly boundless map. While its main strength is its mission diversity, it doesn’t take long to lose the motivation after reaching El Sueno’s doorstep. Even with a foursome of highly trained friends, Wildlands eventually reveals its diminishing returns. The feeling of positive immediacy and dopamine hits begin to wane sooner than you expected from a game with such a large and diverse world.»
