[Ghost Recon Wildlands] : Way Too Many Buttstocks

RchanenRchanen Registered User regular
edited March 2017 in Games and Technology
So Ubisoft is deploying a new game: Sicario. I mean Wildlands

maxresdefault.jpg

The premise is that the ghosts have been deployed to dismantle a Bolivian Cartel. For maximum ridiculousness and stereotyping a Santa Muerte practicing cartel.

Yeah, sigh.

So why do I keep referencing Sicario?

Because the game is apparently supposed to be very free-form. You are given tools (Weapons and Vehicles) and objectives (capture this guy, stop this thing, wreck this place). And then you are let loose.

How you accomplish things is entirely up to you.

Want to bust in like the Dukes of Hazard?

Doable

Want to go in like, well Ghosts?

Very doable

    Also they really have a hard-on for how much you can mod your weapons in this game

    Two articles on it

    http://ghost-recon.ubisoft.com/wildlands/en-US/news/152-275735-16/the-ghost-arsenal

    http://ghost-recon.ubisoft.com/wildlands/en-US/news/152-262664-16/customization-101-gunsmith

    50 weapons in game and the ability to switch out barrels, scopes, sights, stocks, suppressors, etc.

    So I have mixed feelings on this game.

    On the one hand open world free form special ops missions. Sounds very very cool. You can scout and plan and go in like a well-executed machine. Or if you just want to cowboy it you can do that to. Whatever you want, however you want, so long as you get the job done. Black ops, black bag, deniable asset.

    On the other hand Ubisoft. Fuck. I have been disappointed by them before. The main characters you are going after seem paper-thin and game length seems very... variable. As in done after 5 hours variable.

    So what have you guys heard?

    Because my hopes are high, but so are my fears.

    I've been kinda listening to this as well, and I share your concerns.
    I'd be totally ok with the freeform everything motif if they made sure the ghost recon lethality was maintained higher than your average sandbox game.
    The whole thing about the series has been proper planning and execution of your mission, and while its cool to go in stealth, I can't help but feel you'll have that one guy that plays like Mercenaries 2 and just run and guns the whole time because its quicker.

    If you want to go in guns blazing, cool. But your shit should be wrecked if you don't have a concise plan for going about it. The weight of numbers, and intensity of those near the situation should push back the longer you are in a protracted fight. If I can stand in the open and mow down a company and two tanks, its not ghost recon.

    I guess Ubisoft might have rights to the Clancy name but not his novels? This sounds like Clear and Present Danger The Game which intrigues me.

    Pretty much. The Clancy name will go on....

    Honestly its GTAv open world and heists + division character customization and gun play (minus the rpg parts- its straight gunplay no numbers) + farcry 3/4 base taking mechanic

    early reports state its a typical ubi collect-athon on a giant map. If its remotely fun in coop ill be happy.

    if anyone has an extra key for PC, I'd be interested, BladeOfSanjuro on UPlay.

    Seems like they were a bit tighter with the code handouts compared to For Honor/Rainbow 6, etc.

    I got into the PS4 beta. It's a 22.7GB download. :)

    I just want to fly choppers around and hide in the back of cars, etc. Just mess around. Probably will end up waiting for a sale on this.

    there was a report earlier that they had not yet sent out invites to non-preorders to North America and a couple other countries.

    supposedly this site:

    http://ghost-recon.ubisoft.com/wildlands/en-US/beta/index.aspx

    shows if you have been selected and just haven't been issued your key yet.

    You do get guaranteed beta access if you preorder. It's just, you have to preorder the more expensive deluxe editions, and only straight from Ubisoft...

    Like... c'mon man!

    I do want this to be good, though! Mostly for the sake of my buddy's mental health. I think he was the most hyped person on the planet for The Division, and that game shattered his mind and drove him to madness.

    I am very curious about how damage is going to be portrayed. Is it going to be closer to mil-sim one shot can down you or the opposite spectrum of bullet sponges that absorb LMG fire to the head?

    My uPlay ID is "gongzero" if there are still surplus invites to be had.

    i think you can take more damage than that but the vids have a fall back on the screen indicating .... regenning health. :/

    Seriously this just looks like mil sim coop farcry 4. I am so ok with this.

    There was a vid where an enemy chopper flew through.... you can duck them by going prone in the weeds.... it kinda threw a spotlight down in the fields the ghosts were in.... and then lurched on.

    I also saw a massive penalty for civilian death (called in mil/pd patrols on your location on top of whatever cartel forces you were fighting).... which is refreshing.
