Hi Ghosts,

The Ghost Recon Wildlands Studio here. We wanted to reach out to you since the release of our latest update, Special Operation 2.

First of all, we have loved seeing all of your amazing responses to our recently released content, such as Ghost Mode, Observer Mode and Mission Archangel. Seeing your excitement for this new content is what keeps up going, and we canít wait to surprise you in the future with everything else we have in store for you.

But we have also seen some disappointment within our community, mostly due to certain bugs hampering your experience. For this, we sincerely apologize. We truly thank you for your ongoing investment in Ghost Recon Wildlands, and for reaching out to us to share your feedback. We wanted to let you know that we are listening, and that we are actively investigating the bugs you have flagged to us.


HOTFIX

We have released a hotfix already on PC, and will release it on consoles on August 6th. Further details on this hotfix can be found here: https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1914455


FUTURE UPDATES

You shared feedback that you want more visibility on what we are working on, so here is a roadmap of our next updates over the coming months.

http://static2.ubi.com/pxm/GRW/GRWY2Roadmap960.png

As you can see, our next update, Operations & Maintenance, is dropping in late September. This update will focus on addressing bugs flagged to us by our community. We will share more details closer to the time on the exact content of this update. In the meantime, we are currently reworking our Known Issues page and will share it with you as soon as possible.

Special Operation 3 will arrive in December. This update, as with our previous Special Operation updates, will include PVE and PVP content, a special theme with a free PVE mission, and community-requested features.

Special Operation 4 will drop early 2019.


FURTHER UPDATES

We have also seen your comments on the contents of our Year 2 Pass, and wanted to let you know that we are currently exploring how we can improve its value for you. More to come by the release of our O&M Update.

But what about Ghost Mode for consoles and our missing attachments, when will Ghost Mode for consoles be unlocked and when will there be a fix for the missing attachments?

Season Pass Year 2 one week early access to Ghost Mode ended on tuesday 31st?

What about making permadeath optional for ghost mode since NOBODY from the community asked for it. It is nothing but a nickel and dime tactic to strong-arm us into buying all the weapon and attachment packs so we don't need to farm them again.

Surely it would have been far more logical to postpone the hotfix to August so many minor issues could have actually been fixed, rather than rushing a hotfix and leaving many bugs untouched? Now we're practically stuck with the remaining bugs for ATLEAST another month.

A shame

Don't play it then.

The point of Ghost Mode is permadeath, if anything they should add the options from Ghost Mode to the main game.

That way people like you that do not like permadeath can still enjoy the features of Ghost Mode but in the main game.

Now to topic

Is amazing that you are going to fix long existing bugs the community have problems with i also i hope you guys add Ghost Mode/team customization to Fallen Ghost's and a new way to lock perks we don't want to use on DLC, because while it is option for the main game, on DLC you have everything unlock and i don't like it.


A new game plus mode will also be amazing.

Also better AI commands.

I asked for a Permadeath mode so yeah you may want to edit your post to "at least one" from the community asked.

I like LoneSpymaster's comments.

Yes permadeath is great in Ghost Mode! We should also have Ghost Mode options in Fallen Ghost DLC that would be great.

I like the idea of giving us more game custom options in the main game and DLC and including features of Ghost Mode so we can play with one weapon etc... with or without permadeath and giving us options to control number of respawns like we had in GRAW and GRAW 2. This lets the players tune the game to their liking!

Thanks!

like LoneSpymaster said in his comment permadeath is great in Ghost Mode but then for new players it will be too harsh so there should be an option wether or not to have it. That way people who think are good enough can play Permanente death and people who just want to have some fun can just play a mod with no Permanente death.

bi pods for bolt action sniper rifles, 12x zoom scopes for the 50-cals, range finders for all sniper rifles, better bullet velocity not make you feel like you're using a nerf gun or throwing marshmallows and the items you wear actually have an impact. like if you have a heavy vest on you take less explosive damage but move slower, ghuillie suits should make you less dedectable and plate carriers should give you more bullet resistance. oh yeah and the attack drone from Fallen Ghosts.

"We know the game is FUBAR, we'll fix it next month"

Sorry, but this is really silly.
You should be pumping hotfixes once a week if not more 'til it's at least back to the state it was pre-patch.

I'm still missing my DT HTI suppressor.
Op Archangel is so hilariously broken that I haven't had a single playthrough that worked correctly, and I've done over a dozen.
My savefiles only work because I've spent hours trying out workarounds.

Damn, indie games not only push out content in a better state, but also are way quicker to fix it.

Unprofessional is the nicest way I can describe this mess.

Honestly I really love GRW I'm with the Ghosts from the very first beginning 1998 or something when first GR was released. There are difficulties and bugs but considering the vast space covered in GRW and this meny of diferent contest and options, we'll there is to expect some bugs. The game is highly complex and robust. My personall critics would go to the Ghost operative AI in PVE when the game runs Extreme mode and T1. Here the Ghost perform poorly basically became a burden rather then help. If the Unidad and SB is on steroids then atleast make the Ghost operatives more agresive and clever as what they do now is just redicilues. I apsolutely love Ghost Mode wich sets me back how I played the first Ghost Recon, however here in this mod I miss an option to command each ghost individually and be able to give him command what to do or to cover also I rembere in the old Ghost recon there whare some sort of aggressiveness behavure level setting to for evry ghost, that would be awesome to have in GRW. Also the ability to arm the Ghosts with weapons of my choice, Icon characters should be excluded from that part. So, Ubi! keep the good work and BIG THANK YOU for providing us with such a great game like GRW.

Hit the nail on the head. This is coming from someone that pre-ordered this game after enjoying Future Soldier. No thanks to this mess, I don’t want to play this game any further after the mess that is Operation Watchman, much less buy a future Ghost Recon game.

Look, don't get mad at the game because you liked it when it was a single player, FPS Campaign. Go back to Call Of Duty *******. Seriously this is just a lousy way for you to call the game Trash. You even sound like a Call of Duty player.

Wildlands was marketed as being playable single-player. Product did not live up to it. Get your head out of your a s s, p r i c k.

w/ the upcoming special operations 3 & 4. I hope you guys can add more contents in between.
I sure would love to get new uniforms. pls create bulky ones like the icons wear (ex. tachanka)
since default body is kinda slim we would like more customization w/ our characters.. maybe throw in some gorka?

I hope you can introduce more vanity sets while we wait for future contents.
I believe that would make the game fresh...

Lastly, if its possible can we have a possible loadout shortcut?
since matchmaking let us play w/ different players/ different playstyle
it would be convenient to swap loadouts rather than equip each 1 especially in a fight..

thank you.

Please review the following major glitches and provide corrections.
vanishing silencers from locked down gun variations (as In the DT HTI)
Gun mods that become relocked (As in the 5.56 PMAG)
Fix the no kills credited for taking out a choppers. You get credit for explosion kills for a vehicle but nothing for taking out a chopper.
NPC respawning after you have killed them.
1. As in sniper on Air traffic tower at airport in Libertad,
2. The snipers at the Unidad outpost where the 5.56 pmag is located.
3. The three guys patroling the train loading dock at the matchwood mission base.
fix the Sam fisher man crush speach that Nomad recites EVERY time you fast travel.
fix the can't pick up weapons or gear when you start a ghost mode play through until you end and restart the play through.
fix the multiple environment areas that will trap you.
Fix the archangel mission. It plays rather smooth in single player but in coop it's a nightmare.
1. While in coop only the host can interact with the truck, twitch, the apartment. Etc to get the mission to advance.
2. When starting part two sometimes twitch glitches out and will not follow the host.
3. Fix it so that other coop players can escort. Why have coop if you can't do a thing to advance the mission.
4. In coop rebel spotting does nothing for some players.

I don't see there is anything to lose by making each feature in Ghost Mode optional. Everyone can customize their own gaming experience that way. Realistic reloading, one main weapon, permadeath, etc., to each his own.

thanks!

We're aware of an issue where in Ghost Mode when you achieve a goal, prestige points aren't received. We recommend restarting the game in this case. We are also looking into the issue with the missing 300 Prestige credits if you advance in tier mode.

It has been reported and it's being looked into but thank you for reporting it!

This is the update that myself and a lot of other players were asking for. We just wanted some acknowledgment when it comes to all of our missing equipment. I'm upset that I have to wait over a month to get my stuff back, but I'm just glad you're finally admitting this issue and working on fixing it. I really hope you have something planned to compensate everyone who lost all their stuff.
Also, add more CRYE gear, like JPC's.
And a 1-4/6x variable zoom optic like a trijicon accupoint or something similar would be awesome so you can use a long range rifle at close range in first person easily.

Also, in story mode; the fence that surrounds the airport in Libertad is no longer jumpable. I used to be able to climb over the fence behind the tower but I can't climb over it anywhere. Just a small bug I wanted someone to be aware of.

I agree with this, much more flexibility and left to the taste of the player
personaly I like the idea of being limited to one weapon and a sidearm, this would specialize players in the team
but dislike the permanent death

Prestige points are only awarded once.
in coop
PP are awarded the first time you reach that tier.
No points are awarded the next time you Tier up.
ghost mode.
PP are awarded again only the first time you defeat a boss and/or reach a Tier lvl.
this way you canít farm a boss for prestige points.

it appears that itís a mised opportunity to give the game replayable content.

I love GRW, and I LOVE Rainbow Six Siege. I am just super disappointed because all of the good stuff is locked behind some stupid Microtransactions, and people like me (18 years or under) can't get any of it. Now, the prestige loot are handy, but I opened up 20 of them and didn't get anything from the new update. So we're left to waiting because our parents tell us that it's not worth our money.

That is correct the micro transactions are not worth the money.

Farming the upgrades I thought was a major attraction. The weapon Smith was a principal selling point of the game on launch. Stealing a helicopter or creeping into somewhere to get the case I thought was a great reward and incentive to try new approaches to playing the game.

Itís good to see that Ubisoft have recognised a concern regarding value. Pity the fix is so slow. Iíve paid £90 so far for the gold edition and year 2 pass. I will not be sinking any further cash into this. I shouldnít have to. The money doesnít buy gameplay anyway. Ubisoft are giving the game for free.

Kids should not be duped into burning cash on the lotto style crate reward scheme. Itís like some gambling junky style setup just to encourage another spin of the wheel. Highly unethical And for what the rewards donít add anything material to the game. The weapon upgrades are locked regardless of whether you buy or farm them. To think dev invested 5 years to end up here. It seems like we have to moan about the defects just to prevent the game being dragged into the gutter.

Bring these guy's into the mix
hi Ubisoft how about this [opening narration]
Narrator: In 2002 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Bolivian underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.
1.Nomad and the ghost have to help the A-Team escape from the four Unidad prison cells where they are jailed brake out the A-Team get them to the airport to leave Bolivia
2.Finde the A-Team's Van hidden in the map +Face's-corvette
3.FINDE the A- Team's Ruger Mini-14 assault rifles+MAC 10 and MAC 11 plus suppressors

I really like the Splinter Cell side mission but I feel like it was too short and I want so much more !

Do you all think Wildlands would be a good test bed for a new Splinter Cell game ?

What if you did another Splinter Cell mission or a Sam Fisher support buddy and if it's a super positive response maybe that could spark a new Splinter Cell game ? Not to take the light away from Wildlands or anything. It would be rad for me I guess, seeing how I love both franchises. I would like to has cake and eats it too :D

ps.

I would imagine another splinter cell mission would involve a sam fisher AI running around. I think the thing that would get people grooving on it would be a working AI that doesn't get caught up on stuff and is basically self efficient. Having him do crazy wall climbs and hanging from pipes and just basically running around like a machine helping you fight would be super rad.

Having the ability to call in Sam Fisher like rebel support and sit back and watch as he runs around slashing and smashing the other AI would be soooooo sick.
