Today, those who own Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Season Pass can now take on the tactical shooter's first expansion known as the Narco Road DLC, and even though the add-on has been released for a select segment of the game's community, Ubisoft has seen it fit to release an official launch trailer for the new materials. Of course, as one might expect from a title about infiltrating and dismantling a huge drug cartel from the inside, the fresh footage is chock full of action-packed moments.
As seen below in the trailer for Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Narco Road DLC, the expansion tasks players with infiltrating three gangs of smugglers led by the kingpin known as El Invisible. Just like the base game, the add-on is playable in either solo or co-op, and Narco Road adds 15 new missions, four fresh kinds of of side missions, four outfits, nine weapons, and four vehicle types in the form of monster trucks, muscle cars, motorcycles, and planes.
Those who wish to take part in the action that's available in the Narco Road DLC right now can do so by purchasing Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Season Pass for $40, which will also net them the game's next expansion pack when it releases later on down the line. Alternatively, though, they can simply wait until Narco Road releases to the public as a standalone purchase next week on April 25, 2017 for $15.
Just ahead of the release of Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Narco Road DLC, the developers at Ubisoft released fixes and changes under Update 3.0 to prepare the title for the latest add-on. The patch brought about a plethora of bug fixes, balance tweaks, and even a set of weekly challenges that refresh every Wednesday.
While it's safe to say that Season Pass holders are definitely content with their ability to give Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Narco Road DLC a go right now, it's quite possible that the rest of the title's fan base is feeling like they've been left out in the cold. With any luck, though, future releases under Ubisoft's banner or any other studio will take a lesson from the developers at Respawn Entertainment, who have put out all of Titanfall 2's add-ons as free DLC in order to not split up the community, which could not only result in more people getting a game on day one, but also make for a happier and more engaged fan base as a title's post-launch lifespan persists.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
