In a press release, Ubisoft has announced that a new Ghost Recon Wildlands upcoming update is set for tomorrow, and it’s being called the “New Assignment.” It’ll focus on PvP (player vs player) content, and yes, it’ll be free to everyone who owns the game.
New Assignment continues to expand the Ghost War experience by adding three new classes and wraps up the total of six additional classes planned to be introduced within the span of the Ghost War roadmap. Available in all PvP modes, the new classes introduced in New Assignment are:
- The Trapper: an expert shooter equipped with a semi-automatic sniper rifle with the ability to mark downed enemies and deploy remote KO-gas traps to stun and damage enemies.
- The Guerilla: a support-class specialized in diversion tactics and equipped with a smoke-grenade launcher drone.
- The Stalker: a sharpshooter specialized in silently dispatching her enemies thanks to her special abilities.
New Assignment will also introduce two new maps, “Refinery” and “Cliffside,” available for the Extraction mode exclusively, as well as a series of quality of life and gameplay updates addressing player feedback for both PvP and PvE modes. A new map-voting tool will notably allow players to vote for one of three possible Ghost War maps, each from a different game mode, at the start of every new PvP Quickplay and Ranked match.
The new maps and gameplay updates will be available free and simultaneously to all players. Season Pass and Ghost War Pass owners will immediately unlock the three new classes with an exclusive seven-day early access, while other players will be able to unlock classes with Prestige credits earned through progression or to purchase them via the in-game store. These classes round off the PvP content included in the Season Pass and Ghost War Pass offers.
Once the game update is up, we’ll be sure to let our readers know.
