Ghost Recon Wildlands’ latest free content update, which introduces a mission allowing players to get a little bit of help from Rainbow Six Operatives, is now live. Besides the free cross-over mission, players can expect new Ghost Wars content and the ultra-hard PvE Ghost Mode which introduces perma-death into the game.
Ghost Recon Wildlands players will recall that this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a cross-over mission in the tactical shooter. In April, Ghosts teamed up with Sam Fisher from Splintercell briefly. The iconic spy was even voiced by Micheal Ironside!
Check out the patch notes, down below:
When Caveira, an elite Brazilian Operator, goes missing, Rainbow fears she’s up to her old criminal ways. Intelligence agent Valkyrie has tracked her to Bolivia, and enlists the help of the Ghosts, along with nearby Operator Twitch, to find Caveira and discover out what’s really going on. Those of you too busy dismantling the Santa Blanca Cartel to check out Rainbow Six Siege may be wondering: who are these new characters, and where do the Ghosts come into play? That’s why we’ve assembled all the need-to-know intel on your new partners from Rainbow Six:
- Caveira is a Brazilian national and a former member of the elite Brazilian Police force, BOPE. Her disappearance is very troubling for Rainbow, as it is unheard of for an elite Operator to disappear without updating their unit as to their whereabouts. Caveira was raised in the favelas of Sao Paulo, where she committed acts of robbery and had contacts with organized crime. There is concern among Team Rainbow that she may have returned to her criminal roots. An exceptionally lethal operator, Caveira has mastered the ‘Silent Step’ skill, which allows her to sneak up on enemies and immobilize them. She is an expert at interrogation and gathering intel. If someone with her skills should step back over to the criminal world, the results could be catastrophic.
- Valkyrie was still a Navy SEAL, she first met Karen Bowman during a particularly dangerous mission in South America. Bowman was an undercover CIA operative who provided Valkyrie’s team with valuable intel, and the two kept in contact as Valkyrie was recruited for Rainbow and Bowman began working with Ghost Recon. Within Rainbow, Valkyrie’s specialty is surveillance and gathering intel. A former Olympic hopeful, she is very competitive and works well with aggressive operators like Caveira. When Caveira goes missing and is presumed to be in Bolivia, Valkyrie contacts her old friend Bowman, and the two of them provide intel and support to the Ghosts on the ground as they search for the missing Rainbow Operator.
- Twitch is a French national, known for her proficiency with robotics and mechanics, and she was in Brazil for a follow-up assessment on a Rainbow operation when Caveira first went missing. Using advanced technology from the Skell Tech Corporation, she was able to develop Shock Drones that can be deployed for stealth reconnaissance, or used to take out enemy electronics. When Twitch finds out a fellow Rainbow member is missing, she immediately packs up her drones and heads to Bolivia to assist the Ghost Recon operators in their search for Caveira.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
