Special operators take the fight to the drug cartels in 'Ghost Recon: Wildlands' trailer

In the world of "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands," the U.S. government has had enough of the shenanigans of the South American drug cartels and has dispatched their deadliest operators to kill the snake by cutting off its head.


The newly released trailer focuses on the tactics and capabilities of the "Ghosts," Clancy's fictional spec-ops creation and the subject of his games and novels dating back to 2001. So far, we know that "Wildlands" will allow small teams of players to fight in battlefields modelled after the Bolivian jungle.

Game developer Ubisoft Paris clearly wants to paint 'Wildlands' as a smarter alternative to more aggressive offerings from the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises, and to that end the trailer showcases the Ghosts using an assortment of tactics and technology — stealth takedowns, scout drones, etc. — to overpower the cartels' lethal enforcers.
