The first expansion to Ubisoft's open-world co-op stealth shootery extravaganza Ghost Recon Wildlands is due for release next week, April 18, for all platforms. As part of the Season Pass, Narco Road will introduce a bunch of new missions and narcos to take-down. But this time with the added bonus of working your way up the ranks to earn the trust of the elusive El Invisible in order to take him, or her, down.
It certainly sounds very cool, and a welcome departure the repetitive nature of the core game. One that we enjoyed
, but felt was a little lacking. Going undercover and infiltrating a gang is the sort of stuff that the game needs, and we're looking forward to this expansion.
Reaching El Invisible will require gaining the trust of three new charismatic bosses. Eddie Escovado, The self-proclaimed social media star and adrenaline-addicted leader of the Kamikazes gang. Arturo Rey, The mysterious leader of the Death Riders, a gang of riders who worship Santa Muerte. Tonio Mateos, The arrogant leader of the Jinetes Locos, a gang specializing in racing muscle cars.
To earn the respect of these bosses, players will complete more than 15 fast-paced campaign missions. In addition to these new story missions, four new types of side missions and racing challenges offer adrenaline-fueled action. Completing these activities will earn players fame and followers. The more followers a player acquires, the more interest they will get from the gang bosses, and the closer they will come to bringing down El Invisible.
Narco Road will also be released as a standalone expansion on April 25.
