Ubisoft released a new dev diary with writer Don Winslow about his work on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. In the video, Winslow shares his research method that he uses to prepare for writing a book. Starting with legal documents, he pours many hours into reading reports and history books before expanding his research to include interviews with anyone related to his topic of interest. Winslow also talks about some of the differences between writing a novel, writing a script for a film, and writing a script for a video game, commenting that video games feels like a mix of writing novels and film scripts.
Ubisoft tapped veteran writer Don Winslow (The Cartel) and famed screenwriter Shane Salerno (Armageddon) for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands’ script. The game is set in Bolivia where the ruthless drug cartel Santa Blanca has assassinated a US government agent. The Ghosts have been sent in to dismantle the Santa Blanca cartel, now deemed a terrorist organization, by any means necessary. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands launches on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 7th.
