Now that we're less than a day away from Ghost Recon: Wildlands' release date, Ubisoft has decided to celebrate the impending availability of the open world tactical shooter by releasing an official launch trailer for the game. The video comes shortly after the company released the day one patch notes for the title, which detail all of the enhancements, tweaks, and improvements planned to make their way into the game tomorrow.
As seen in Ghost Recon: Wildlands' launch trailer below, the video provides a a set up as to how players will be taking down the Santa Blanca drug cartel in a fictional version of Bolivia, while also highlighting some exhilarating chase scenes, intense shootouts, and plenty of explosions. While the Ghosts are certainly adept when it comes to strategically minded warfare, gunplay, and overall combat, when taking previously released trailers and gameplay videos into account, it should be noted that the game's Santa Blanca cartel will be a formidable foe to infiltrate and defeat.
In addition to touching on the Santa Blanca cartel's stranglehold on the South American country in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, the game's launch trailer also makes reference to how players can "team up" to take down the organization by collaborating in four-player cooperative multiplayer. Of course, it should also be mentioned that fans who wish to go it alone in Wildlands will be able to do so as well, thanks to the game's option for single-player.
While it's safe to say that today's Ghost Recon: Wildlands launch trailer will surely stoke fans' excitement for what many are calling one of the most highly anticipated video games of 2017, the government of Bolivia may not be as keen to see the game release tomorrow. As it happens, some of the country's top officials have been offended by the way Wildlands depicts the region, which spurred the Bolivian government to file a formal complaint with the French embassy.
Taking all of this into account, it will be interesting to see if Ghost Recon: Wildlands manages to live up to the hype and sell a solid amount of copies upon release tomorrow, especially after it broke an Ubisoft record by besting For Honor in hosting the most users during a beta period in the company's history. In the meantime, fans would do well to determine whether or not Ghost Recon: Wildlands is worth a day one purchase by checking out the critical reviews released so far.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is set to launch on March 7, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
