Detection and gameplay bug fixes included in this latest update.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands

The latest patch for Ghost Recon: Wildlands has just been deployed, making this the 5th patch for Ubisoft’s open world shooter.

Weighing at 7.42 GB on PC and 8.8 GB on PS4 and Xbox One, the patch introduces Tier 1 mode, which essentially allows players to surpass the level cap and play at a higher difficulty. Tier 1 mode will introduce more rewards for players to aim at achieving – for now there isn’t much news detailing what the rewards will be, but we should hear something from Ubisoft in the coming days.

Most notably of the bug fixes being the reason for detection being displayed above the mini-map, the bug fix for Fallen Ghosts where players would be noticed by NPCs when firing the crossbow from far enough away and other detection changes.
