With Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint just a few months away, the developers at Ubisoft have one last surprise for players of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands – a brand new free-for-all mode called “Mercenaries.” This mode pits eight players against each other and the AI-controlled Cartel, in a fight to survive until extraction arrives. This players vs. players vs. enemies (PvPvE) Mercenaries mode is the final content update planned for Ghost Recon: Wildlands. After playing a match, players will earn the Lone Wolf skin as thanks for trying the mode out.
An eight-player free-for-all, Mercenaries is divided into three phases: Recon, Helicopter Deployment, and Extraction. The mode is a race to be rescued first by gathering intel before anyone else and fighting off both computer-controlled soldiers and other players. In Phase 1: Recon, you spawn in without any gear, weapons, or items. In order to reach the next phase, you need to discover the location of the extraction point by activating three different radio transmitters. While hunting down transmitters, you can also stop off at intel markers to unlock different perks, such as the location of every other player for a limited time or the position of a vehicle. While exploring, you can scavenge for supplies, which will come in handy for fending off other players or Unidad soldiers. Dying won’t reset your progress, but you will lose every weapon, item, and piece of gear on your person.
Once one of the eight players activates three transmitters, Phase 2: Helicopter Deployment begins. Only the player who activated all three transmitters will know where the extraction helicopter is going to land, but the other seven will be informed of the location once the chopper sets down. Boarding the chopper requires five segments in your extraction gauge, and you can fill one of those segments by activating three transmitters. So once the helicopter appears, you can follow it to immediately challenge the player who summoned it or continue hunting for transmitters and markers to better your odds for Phase 3.

Phase 3: Extraction begins once the helicopter touches down on the map, revealing its location to all eight players. As stated before, you need five segments in your extraction gauge to board the chopper. You can earn additional segments by staying within a set area around the helicopter, but only if you’re the only player present. You’ll have to fend off any approaching players to fill your gauge while fighting off the swarm of Unidad soldiers as well. The first player to earn five segments and board the helicopter wins the match.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands saw a ton of support even in its final year, including the return of Sam Fisher, voiced by the legend himself, Michael Ironside. This final update is a really cool way to send out the game on a high note out for all the fans and players who have supported it.While Ghost Recon: Wildlands isn’t quite native 4K on Xbox One X, it does have a high resolution with great HDR implementation and other improvements.
