Since the announcement of Ghost Recon Wildlands, it has been known that the game will feature a co-op mode just like many of the previous Ghost Recon games.
Today Ubisoft revealed some more information around the game mode in the form of a frequently asked question post.
Co-op from the Very Beginning
One of the first decisions made by the development team was to ensure that co-op would be available from the very start of the game. In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, you will not have to wait if you want to play with your friends. You will be able to join up from the very beginning.
Also, thanks to the hot join system, you can begin in solo, if you so choose, and your friends can come into your game seamlessly at any time. However, if you prefer to play by yourself, you are able to turn off co-op and have AI Ghosts part of your squad. Your teammates are also able to leave at any time without you having to return to a menu or even leaving the game world. Your gameplay experience will never be interrupted by the co-op function.
Of course in co-op mode, you will still be able to approach each and every mission any way you want with no limitations.
Freedom of Choice
Even in co-op, there is no specific way to approach a mission. Freedom of choice is important in Ghost Recon Wildlands. A player can choose to change how they decide to take on an obstacle.
To aid in communications between you and your teammates you will have VOIP, user interface elements, and a tacmap at your disposal, to allow you for instance to place beacons on the map. You will also be able to use the same command wheel used to command your AI teammates in order to better plan with your co-op teammates. Additionally, you will be able to use the syncshot in co-op as well as in single player. PC players will also have an added benefit of a text based chat to further aid in communications.
