Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is an open world, tactical shooter utilising a third person perspective with an optional First-person view for gun aiming. Players play as members of the Ghosts, a "fictional" elite special operations team in the United States Army.
The game takes place in Bolivia in July 2019. The country has become increasingly unstable as the Santa Blanca, a previously minor Mexican drug cartel, gains more power and influence within the county to the point where Bolivia has become a narco-state and the world's largest producer of cocaine. The rise in power of this drug cartel concerns the United States Government, as Santa Blanca's influence has begun to spread beyond Bolivia. The last straw comes when a bomb targets the U.S. embassy in La Paz and its intended target, DEA agent Ricardo "Ricky" Sandoval, is kidnapped, tortured and then killed by the Santa Blanca. As a result, the United States initiates Operation Kingslayer, a joint operation between the CIA, DEA and JSOC. The United States Army dispatches an elite fireteam of special operations unit called "the Ghosts" to destroy the cartel and reveal the connection between Santa Blanca and the local government.
The game features co-operative multiplayer, in which players can be joined by up to three other players to explore the game's world and to complete campaign mission. The game can also be played solo, in which the player will be accompanied by three AI teammates, which the player can give orders to.
