Experience this Unique Tom Clancy’s Crossover Event Starting July 25
SYDNEY, Australia — July 24, 2018 — Ubisoft has revealed that the worlds of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege will be colliding in a free and exclusive crossover mission as part of Special Operation 2, the second major update of the second year of post-launch content for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. Players will be able to team up with Valkyrie, Twitch and Caveira in this two-part crossover event available tomorrow, July 25, on all platforms.
Starting July 25 for all players, exclusive Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege–themed content will be introduced to the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands main campaign and Ghost War PvP mode, including two new Rainbow Six Siege–inspired Ghost War PvP classes and a two-part PvE mission, called Operation Archangel,. The Rainbow Six Siege Operator Caveira has gone missing. Valkyrie, a longtime friend of Karen Bowman, has tracked her down to Bolivia. With the help of Twitch, the Ghosts will follow a trail of clues, to learn more about why Caveira is in Bolivia, and also about her troubled past. This special challenge is playable solo or with up to four players in co-op and can be found in the province of Caimanes.
Upon completing Operation Archangel before August 14, players will be rewarded with Caveira gloves. When equipped, players will be able to perform Caveira’s iconic CQC move and automatically unlock the position of all enemies in the vicinity. In addition to the rewards for completing the challenge, players can further customise and arm their Ghosts with the Rainbow Six Gear Pack, which includes new customisation items and weapons such as Caveira’s iconic Luison handgun, a fully customisable HK 416 assault rifle, a head-wrapped shemagh inspired by Valkyrie and a skull balaclava inspired by Twitch.
Special Operation 2 will also bring two new Ghost War PvP classes, Toxic and Surgeon, which were inspired by Smoke and Doc of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Toxic uses his drone to deploy a large cloud of toxic smoke, which allows players to both trap the enemy team and create area denials, while Surgeon uses his stim pistol to revive teammates from a distance, creating new opportunities to deploy support strategies at medium range. In addition to two new classes, this update will also contain two new PvP maps, Factory and Checkpoint, a new spectate feature called Observer mode and Ghost mode, a higher difficulty permadeath PvE game mode.
Ghost War players will be able to get seven-day early access to the new classes, maps and Ghost mode with the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 Pass. For newcomers, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be up to 67% off from July 24–31. For further information, please visit ghostrecon.com.

The team is committed to supporting the game by offering free new content and continuing to improve the core experience.

About Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon
Launched in 2001 with critical acclaim from fans of the Tom Clancy’s world, the Ghost Recon franchise has since convinced 30 million players thanks to breakthrough releases and has become the best-selling Tom Clancy’s brand on the last generation of consoles and PC. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands brings the franchise to the next level with an episode designed from the ground up for a new generation, featuring a massive and visually stunning open world, playable for the first time online in four-player co-op.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a work of fiction. Like similar Tom Clancy’s games from Ubisoft, the game takes place in a modern universe inspired by reality, but the characters, locations and stories are created solely for entertainment purposes. One of the reasons Bolivia was chosen as the background of this game was due to its magnificent landscapes and rich culture. While the game’s premise imagines a different reality than the one that exists in Bolivia today, we do hope that the in-game world comes close to representing the country’s beautiful topography, and that players enjoy exploring the diverse and open landscapes it moved us to create. Any resemblance to actual events or any real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
