Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands got a brand-new developer diary video today that tackles the topic of player freedom.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a few months from release. Talking on the matter of freedom and customization, developer Ubisoft released a new dev diary clip called Freedom of Choice. The idea is to promote how the game puts you, the player, in control of game.
“In Ghost Recon Wildlands, you have the freedom to choose how you approach your missions. Learn more about your options with Eric Couzian, Creative Director, Laurent Fischer, Senior Technical Director and a former member of the US Special Operations.”
In the clip above, the former member of the US Special Operations wasn’t identified in order to protect his identity.
Ubisoft wanted the game to provide a “total freedom of choice”. To achieve that, the gameplay gives player the power to choose how to tackle certain missions. With enabled customizations – there are tons of possible combinations – you can suit up for heavy army counter measures, or go in head first as a civilian. Regardless, you mustn’t break any morals, ethics, or legal issues to accomplish the mission. This keeps the game and setting’s integrity.
“I think we manager to give the player a lot of choices. If the player wants to dress like a real spec ops, he can. If he wants to dress like a civilian, he also can.”
“The new Gunsmith: more weapons, more possibilities, more attachments, more details. With all these possibilities, you get millions of millions of combinations.” ( -Laurent Fisher, Senior Tech. Director – Characters)
At the time being, some fans claim that the game might look like The Division. Based off of what we have seen so far, there might be some similarities between the two. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to confirm anything until the game come out, or until we learn a little more about the gameplay.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is scheduled for release on March 7, 2017. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
