Ubisoft is continuing its tradition of providing long-term support for its games with Ghost Recon Wildlands being the latest title to receive another year of new content for free. The shooter has seen a number of updates since its release over a year ago, such as the major addition of the head-to-head multiplayer mode, Ghost War. Even the Predator made an appearance in the ten-million player strong game for a short period of time.
Ubisoft announced today that 'Year 2' will kick off on April 10 with the Special Operations I free update, which brings along a new campaign mission and gives players the ability to customize their AI teammates. On the PvP side, the update has a brand new class and the sabotage game mode for Ghost War, which will have five new maps built exclusively for it.
Three more free Special Operations updates are planned for the year, each coming attached with a unique theme as well as more "missions, items, rewards, and community-requested features."
Free updates aside, Ubisoft is also introducing a new season pass to the game. Coming in with a $29.99 price tag, the Year 2 pass will provide access to this year's upcoming Ghost War classes seven days earlier than everyone else. It also comes with a special customization pack and eight Battle Crates which are split between Special Ops and Ghost War.
It's unsurprising that Ubisoft is deciding to keep its multiplayer games up and running with injections of fresh content, with For Honor and now Ghost Recon Wildlands being the latest, considering that Rainbow Six Siege and The Division are thriving under multiple years of support.
