Specific matchmaking options for different activities have recently been added.
Ubisoft continues to support Ghost Recon Wildlands, its open world third-person stealth shooter, as Year 2 rolls on. The latest Operations and Maintenance update may not contain new Special Operations, but it has some pretty cool quality of life changes.
For instance, the update now brings in Mood Matchmaking. Players can now decide what “mood” they’d like to go into PvE with, whether that means completing main story missions, partaking in Rebel Ops and Convoy missions, progressing through Tier 1, or completing various Special Missions. You can also have no preference, thus allowing for a wider range of players.
The update also makes the Operator Pack free for all Year 2 Pass holders. It brings two cosmetic items and one weapon (the U100) that can be used in PvP and PvE modes. For those who still care about Spec Ops and Ghost War Battle Crates, more than 45 new customization items have been added to the pool. Check out the full patch notes below for more information. Those interested in Ghost Recon Wildlands can try it out for free this weekend.
You can now customize your co-op experience: join up with other Ghosts ready to take on the same objectives by selecting your Mood in public matchmaking for PvE.
Mood Options for Main Game:
– Main Story Missions
– Rebel Ops and Convoys
– Open World Exploration
– Special Missions
– Tier 1 Progression
– No Preference
New weekly challenges await you in this update, as do the rewards that come with completing them.
Year 2 Season Pass Update
Based on the community feedback around the Year 2 Pass, we have included the Operator Pack for free for all Pass holders. The Operator Pack contains one weapon for PvE and two cosmetic customization items (t-shirt and vest) that can be used in PvP or PvE.
Each future title update of Year 2 will also include an item pack for Year 2 Pass owners. We’ll update you with more specifics on the contents of each pack closer to their release.
Spec Ops and Ghost War Battle Crates have 45+ new customization options for your Ghost.
We’ve added more Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege Operators to our current list of icons: Smoke, Sledge, Thatcher, and Mira. These icons are only available through Battle Crates.
The Relentless Fight Pack includes two new weapons, one top, and one vest.
