Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, this one focusing on the use of the Mercenaries game mode. Mercenaries is an eight-player free-for-all PvPvE gameplay experience where the objective is to call for rescue, locate and reach the extraction point, then be the first to board the chopper once all the tasks are complete. When you complete your first Mercenaries match in Ghost Recon Wildlands, you will get a special Lone Wolf Costume. You can see more of the mode in action in the trailer below, as we have more details for you here.
Mercenaries mode introduces a wealth of new mechanics including:
- Looting for Gear: Players start the game just with a melee weapon and will need to find the best gear, weapons and consumables to fight the Unidad forces and enemy players. If a player dies, they will lose all of the loot gathered and start at square one when they respawn.
- Armor: Mercenaries mode will feature a new health and armor system. Based on the gear players pick up, an armor bar will appear. This bar will absorb a percentage of damage based on the penetration capability of the opponent’s weapon.
- Health: If players are hit by a weapon that deals penetration damage, they will bleed and gradually lose a percentage of their health. If they are injured, they will be able to loot three different types of healing items to get back into fighting shape: medikits, bandages and syringes.
- Destructible Doors: Destructible doors can be opened with CQC, behind which players may find intel, loot, or cover to aid them in their fight. Players will need to think tactically about when to use this as opponents will be able to hear the breaking doors if they are close by.
