Ubisoft has fully revealed the details of Special Operation 4 for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Releasing tomorrow, Ghost Recon Wildlands Special Operation 4 comes with the previously announced PvE content and new PvP–focused content.

Special Operation 4 is the last free major update for the second year of Ghost Recon Wildlands, and featured the new PvE mode: Guerrilla, the new Sapper PvP class.

Guerrilla Mode expands on the game’s PvE that challenges your endurance, skills and tactics. The mode is available to play solo or in co-op with up to four Ghosts.

In this mode, you will need to defend key locations against increasingly deadly waves of Cartel and Unidad members. After each completed wave, you have the opportunity to purchase and upgrade weapons, skills and attachments.

To do this, you will use resources gathered from dead enemies.

In addition to Guerrilla Mode, Special Operation 4 introduces new Ghost War PvP–focused content. Here’s the rundown:

  • One New PvP Class: The Sapper is a new Support class option that deploys a specialized drone capable of shooting “concussion” mines. These mines drain stamina from players as well as suppressing them, slowing down their rush.
  • Two New PvP Maps.
  • Two New PvP Events:
    • Arms Race: Players spawn with only their pistols and are forced explore the map for better weapons.
    • Danger Zone: Players are periodically bombed with ultrasonic blasts, forcing them to always be on the move.

As we previously told you, the update also includes the ability to change Time of Day for solo Campaign Modea new bleeding notification in Ghost War, the addition of the compass HUD option to PvE, and daily campaign challenges with increased rewards.

Additionally, Special Operation 4 will add a new Heatmap view. This allows you to see the most visited locations in the Wildlands and maybe even discover some  you have yet to explore.

The Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 Pass offers seven-day early access to the new Ghost War class, along with the exclusive Active Duty Pack starting tomorrow, February 27.

All other players will be able to access on the new PvP class on March 6.
