Ghost Recon: Wildlands DLC Detailed, Free PvP Mode Coming After Launch
Here is everything that's included in the game's DLC pass and more.
Ubisoft today outlined its post-launch plans for Ghost Recon: Wildlands today, which includes paid content through a DLC pass and free updates.
The DLC pass comes with two "major" expansions, as well as a one "special mission that call[s] on players to take on enemies that only experienced Ghosts are able to handle." Season pass-owners will get to play the new expansions one week before everyone else can buy them.
People who buy the pass also get new outfits and weapons, as well as a permanent 5 percent XP boost and a "single-use short XP booster" that offers +50 percent XP bonus for the player and +25 percent XP bonus for everyone in their squad for a period of two hours.
Here is a full rundown of what's in the DLC pass, as written by Ubisoft:
