Why Ghost Recon Wildlands Is Ubisoft’s Most Ambitious Game Yet

The Ghost Recon franchise, along with Prince of Persia, has been one of Ubisoft’s mainstays through the late 90s and early 2000s. Of late though, it ceded the spotlight to the likes of Assassin’s Creed, and Watch Dogs.

But now, the tactical shooter is making a comeback. Ghost Recon Wildlands comes complete with what seems to be a mandatory requirement for many a big budget PC and console game — an open-world. Though our initial impressions were lukewarm, there appears to be more to Ghost Recon Wildlands than meets the eye. Gadgets 360 spoke to Dominic Butler, Lead Game Designer at Ubisoft Paris to find out more.

One crucial element that struck us about Ghost Recon Wildlands is that it’s a military shooter with a massive open-world, and four player co-operative play. Furthermore, there’s attention to detail in terms of story and world-building. It appears to be a game that’s trying to appeal to every major gaming audience. This made us wonder what the design challenges were that Ubisoft Paris faced while creating missions within this sprawling framework.
