Ghost Recon Wildlands Operation Oracle Adds New Story Content
You have two new missions, Ghosts.
A new update will bring a set of fresh missions to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Operation Oracle, the third-person, co-op shooter's latest update, arrives at the beginning of May and also comes with two unique rewards for those that successfully pull of the new missions. [Update: It turns out this update ties into the newly announced Ghost Recon game, Breakpoint. The game was revealed as part of a Ghost Recon livestream event on May 9.
Operation Oracle lands on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 2. It will introduce two new missions, playable in solo or co-op, to extract a Skell Tech engineer arrested by Unidad. Here, you'll also meet a fellow Ghost Team Leader, Major Cole D. Walker, who's a little shiftier than your average Ghost. You can watch the reveal trailer below.
Operation Oracle is accessible immediately after finishing Wildlands' first mission. Head to Montuyoc, marked on the game's TacMap, to start the operation. Once finished, you'll earn two unique rewards: Walker's Bracelet (which equips a new CQC Finisher) and Walker's Tattoo, for added style points.
In preparation for Operation Oracle, Wildlands will be free to play from Thursday, May 2 to Sunday, May 5. Everything, including Operation Oracle, will be accessible during the free play weekend. PC and PS4 owners can pre-load the game on May 1, and all progress will carry over to those who purchase the full game.
Operation Oracle also implements a host of performance-related fixes. You can read the full patch notes below.
