Related Achievements and Trophies
Creating your character for multiplayer.
After starting up the game, you are given the chance to create your own character that you will use in solo missions and co-op multiplayer . You can customize your gender, facial features, and clothing to make your own unique character.
Your character will appear as you make them in cutscenes that play out between certain missions. In the main game, there are a number of these scenes that build the narrative of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands as you complete missions. In multiplayer sessions, the players that haven't already completed the given missions will see the full cutscene, while everyone else that has beforehand will not have to view it.
The options you select for your character's appearence will not have any effect on your loadout, skills , or anything else related to the growth of your character. These are strictly cosmetic and only affect the cutscenes you see inbetween story missions.
Multiplayer Sessions Setup
Joining up with other players online in Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands is simple. You can either send invites to players when you first enter the game via the Squad Lobby Menu, or join sessions already in progress. Multiplayer is drop-in/drop-out for everyone online across all platforms, but you can only play with others on the same console as you.
Multiplayer lobbies can be set up to have public matchmaking enabled, so players online can immediately join your sessions even if they aren't on your friend list. There's also the option to create private lobbies for you and your friends only.
Multiplayer Fast Traveling
When playing with other players online, everyone gains the ability to use fast travel on the positions of other players. This is helpful when someone in the group does not have any Rally Points opened up in the area.
You have the option to fast travel on teammate positions when you use your Drone or Binoculars and look towards the icon of another player. This will prompt the option to use fast travel if you aren't engaged in combat or being hunted.
Progressing the Story in Multiplayer
When playing multiplayer online, you can get credit for any mission that you complete. This can help you complete most missions faster and fill up your Santa Blanca cartel grid to unlock others. You can even be part of missions you haven't unlocked in your own solo game and complete them on your grid when you successfully finish.
If you find yourself struggling to complete missios alone, partnering up with others online can make them easier.

Ghost Recon Wildlands – How to Play Co-Op
Ghost Recon Wildlands is finally here and players are diving into the story and fun that Ubisoft’s next shooter will offer. If you’re looking to play the game with your pals, though, things can be a bit confusing, as Ghost Recon Wildland’s co-op system works a bit differently than previous Ubisoft titles. In this article we’ll show you how to join your friends and play co-op in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
How to Find the Co-Op Menu
The first thing you need to do is find the cooperative menu in the game. This can be accomplished by loading up your game and creating your first character. Once you’ve created a character, the game will begin, and you’ll have to watch a few cutscenes before you gain control of your Ghost. Don’t worry, though, these cutscenes don’t take that long to pass, and soon you’ll be able to freely roam the environment.
Once you’ve watched the first few cutscenes, you’ll gain access to the main game itself. From here you press Enter at any time to launch into a public game, but if you want to join your friends, you’ll need to locate the Lobby menu. First, open up your Inventory and then look for the Lobby tab on the far left. Navigate to this area and you should be able to spot your friends list down below.
From here all you need to do is highlight a friend’s name and press the corresponding button to join or invite them to your game. The game will automatically load you into their play session, which will allow you to join their current mission with ease.
That’s pretty much everything you need to know about joining friends in Ubisoft’s upcoming shooter, Ghost Recon Wildlands. You have the entire weekend to play the game and test it out, so make sure you know when the beta ends . If you have invites that you haven’t used yet, be sure to send them out to your friends by following our guide on how to invite your friends to the Ghost Recon Wildlands beta .
We’ll have more information about this game coming in the next few days, so check back often for updated details and guides to help you conquer Bolivia and become the best soldier that you can be.
Live your passion!
Ubisoft: ghost recon wildlands will be playable offline, no distance limit in co-op.
As announced at E3, Ghost Recon Wildlands will be playable in both single and co-op: when we're alone our companions will be guided by the AI of the game, but at all times our friends will come into the match by taking control of the other. View though the growing fashion to create titles online-only (remaining in the House The Crew and Ubisoft just look The Division ), it was thought that this would have been a title solely online. To the delight of players who may not always enjoy a stable connection, Ubisoft has now officially announced that the title will be playable even completely offline, in which case it will be a classic single-player experience as the previous games in the series.
But when we decide to play online, connecting in co-op in our friends, there will be special restrictions? This responds to the developer's community manager, explaining that each player connected will have complete freedom and can move wherever you want in the huge game map that represents the territory of Bolivia. This means that players can get away with one another as much as they want, reaching perhaps aboard vehicles different edge of the map, rejoining then when they need to work in concert to serve a mission.
We hope to soon offer more information and videos on this interesting title: in the meantime, if you had done so, we invite you to read our preview last year from Los Angeles.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands - the pros and cons of multiplayer co-op
Once a mission is completed, is there any temptation to go back?
"If the End Game is completing all the missions on Ghost difficulty, it may be hard to convince friends to pursue this without superior loot in prospect"
First attempts at 4-player co-op in Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands highlight the pros and cons of the game in a brutal fashion.
With a handful of EXP-points to spend on upgrading our weapon, drone, equipment and squad capabilities, the Ghost Recon: Wildlands experience was about to get real. Assigned three random (respected fellow journalist) players, my missions require excellent real-world verbal communication in addition to cover-and-shoot experience and expertise.
Our instructor had the AI ramped up to Elite, one below the most difficult Ghost setting, so that our enemy would now be more aware and retaliate with greater force. At this stage it is perhaps worth pointing out that, unlike with The Division, health and mobility on both sides of the battle remain neutral – characters are not artificially levelled to necessitate grinding. Mission success in Wildlands is down to decision making and execution, pure and simple.
Or, not so simple as it turned out.
Ubisoft's Responsive Open World
The mission routine in Ghost Recon: Wildlands is different to The Division in a couple of key ways. First, Wildlands is not a shared-world shooter with instanced scenarios, it is played as a regular co-op campaign with difficulty set from the menus. Second, and equally important, is how the method of approach to locations can affect mission outcomes in significant ways.
And so, for our first infiltration of a cartel outpost, we wisely drove by night, stopping short of the facility to scope it out. With night-vision equipped, we coordinated reasonably well to thin the numbers of guards armed with mini-guns. We could’ve parachuted from a chopper, or shot the place to shreds from the air (or tried to) but the ground assault seemed right at the time. Once you’re committed to the strategy, you have to make it work as the team.
Speaking in terms of Destiny, the four-man missions feel something between a Strike and a Raid in many ways, but more free-form and – okay – without colossal bosses to take-down. As a shared activity, though, the beats feel quite familiar, and perfected along similar lines.
Vehicles play a major role in the entertainment value, as well as being a practical concern. Why take the flat-bed truck when an armoured troop carrier is also at hand? One is subtle, the other not so much. Guess which one will raise the alarm, though.
After gathering intel by interrogating a cartel soldier, it was the next stage of the mission that tested the team most of all. Shooting our way in and out of an outpost just about ran smoothly, with few friendly casualties. This was Battlefield or Call of Duty territory. Where the game truly became Ghost Recon is in the attempted exfiltration of a cartel deserter.
Our guy was being guarded by an organised team out in the open somewhere, with spotters and snipers positioned on the rocks and guards patrolling muddy roads close to their cars. The task was simple, but identifying all the components in addition to perfect execution was tough for our new team. The key to this particular puzzle was that the deserter, already out of favour, was dispensable to the cartel. If the group became alerted they would shoot him without a second thought. And so, this needed to be a clean push from start to end.
After countless embarrassing restarts, having risked a gung-ho approach numerous times, the trick was to identify only a handful of threats to sneak away the target unharmed. Or, in our case, cause a distraction with two or three players while one agent made the snatch.
More familiar territory
"Our official hands-on time was up, but even so I think the team would’ve called it a night by that stage. The mission was done. We earned more EXP for upgrades. Catch you all later"
Our group fared much better in the second, allegedly more challenging, mission. Our overall impression was less favourable as a consequence. After a soft interrogation of the deserter, Emilio – presented as a cinematic cut-scene – we learned the identity of a new target; one former army ranger Carl Bookhart, holed up in an abandoned silver mine. We stormed the base from the outside, before hosing our way in and out without much strategic thought.
We worked the entrance tunnels and metal stairwells exceptionally well – the objective always right in front of us: guys to shoot. The action was reminiscent of the Mexican tunnel scenes in Sicario, watching corners, following the sounds of gunfire to provide support to a team that had forgotten the benefits of sticking close together. With flashbangs, frags and heavy firepower, Brookhart was soon smoked out of his hiding place and effortlessly slain.
Our official hands-on time was up, but even so I think the team would’ve called it a night by that stage. The mission was done. We earned more EXP for upgrades. Catch you all later.
Personally speaking, enthusiasm for Ghost Recon: Wildlands centres a lot on the theme of resourceful agents and the potential to shape missions in inventive new ways. One concern is that, unlike The Division, Destiny and to some extent the team-based efforts of Overwatch to gain EXP and improve ranking as a group, the take-away from Wildlands is much more traditional. Your reward is Mission Complete, since there is no loot system as such.
On the one hand this is good, since effort is put into acquiring and upgrading gear that suits a particular playstyle. But if the End Game is completing all the missions on Ghost difficulty, it may be hard to convince friends to pursue this without superior loot in prospect.
Ubisoft recently confirmed a PvP mode to be added after launch, but no details have been shared. Perhaps this will be the key to the game’s longevity owing to bragging rights of the top players, and a go-to destination for people looking to mix things up between grand-scale Battlefield, cat-and-mouse Call of Duty and the grindfests of Destiny and The Division.
These impressions are based on a preview event for Ghost Recon: Wildlands held in Paris earlier this month. Ubisoft paid for travel.

The Co-Op Experience
Players can be joined by three other players to explore the game's world and to complete campaign's mission
Bolivia, a few years from now: this beautiful South American country has become the largest cocaine producer in the world. The influential and vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel has turned the country into a narco-state, leading to lawlessness, fear, injustice, and violence. The cartel is on track to becoming a major underworld power and global threat. An all-out war is not the answer. A surgical, stealthy, lethal approach is the only way to stop the disease at its source. The Ghosts, an elite US Special Forces team, are sent behind enemy lines to wreak havoc, destabilize, and eventually break the alliance between the cartel and the corrupted government. Facing an almighty enemy in a massive and hostile environment, the Ghosts will need to make critical moral choices and engage in tough battles to complete their mission – their grittiest and most dangerous operation to date.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a Truly Co-op Experience
Co-op is a term that’s thrown around for a lot of games. We are big fans of co-op, but there’s a lack of games that are fully co-op; so many you can only play certain missions together, or have to wait until a certain point before you can join your buddies. Not with Ghost Recon: Wildlands .
Right from the moment you press Start, you can play Ghost Recon: Wildlands entirely in co-operative with up to three friends. There’s no messing around getting yourself through introductory missions or training sequences; it’s straight into the action – and that’s very refreshing. Many times we’ve sat down wanting a quick co-op blast on a game, only to be thwarted by the fact one of us still needs to reach a particular chapter in the game before unlocking co-op play. It’s a great move from Ubisoft to make co-operative play so intrinsic and seamless.
Wildlands lets you play with up to four friends, and no matter if they’re joining your game or if you’re jumping into one of theirs, your progress is entirely your own. Even if you are all at slightly different points in the game, you’ll make your own progression and it will save in your own game, should you switch to playing solo at some point. Even if a friend is pretty far ahead of you, you can still drop in and play with them, thanks to a feature that Ubisoft are calling “unlock sharing” – your friends can share the related missions with you, even if they’re not unlocked in your own game.
Ubisoft promises it to be entirely seamless too – you and your friends can drop in and out of games at any time and nobody’s progress will be halted. You won’t be thrown back to lobby menus if someone decides to leave. It’s a seamless drop-in, drop-out system.
There’s no tethering between co-op players either, so you can all wander as far away from each other on the map as you deem necessary. Still, the idea of co-op play in Ghost Recon: Wildlands is that you face enemy threats together, so it’s probably a good idea to stick relatively close for when things get messy.
Of course, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is entirely playable in single player too if you don’t want to play with others. When alone, your teammates will be populated by three AI characters who’ll back you up.
We’re looking forward to exploring the wildlands of Bolivia when the game releases on 7th March. We love a good co-op game , and knowing that Ghost Recon: Wildlands has been so tightly designed to cater for 2-4 players so seamlessly makes us all the more excited to jump in.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Co-Op Multiplayer: How to Play with Friends
Ghost Recon Breakpoint follows a similar blueprint to its predecessor, Wildlands, in that it’s a sandbox stealth game that’s designed to be played with other people in multiplayer. But you won’t be able to do that straight away. Here’s how to play with friends in Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
Before you can access the game’s co-operative multiplayer features, you’ll first need to complete the prologue and unlock the main hub area, Erewhon.
The mission is called Eagles Down and it commences after you’ve created your Ghost. The mission itself is really very straight forward, as you’d expect from what is essentially the tutorial. You’ll simply need to investigate three helicopter crash sites and then follow a trail into a cave.
Just remember to steer clear of high-level enemies, and you can always use a vehicle to get to the trail, rather than having to run the whole way there.
Once you’ve searched for survivors and spoken to the wounded soldier in the infirmary, some cutscenes will follow, the mission will end, and you’ll have access to Erewhon.
How to Play Co-Op Multiplayer With Friends in Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Once you unlock Erewhon, you can invite friends by holding down on the D-pad. When inside the base you’ll see a prompt on the top right of your screen to join/invite friends.
To sum things up, here’s how to play co-op multiplayer with friends in Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
That should give you everything you need to know about how to play co-operative multiplayer with friends in Ghost Recon Breakpoint . For more useful tips and guides, be sure to check out our extensive wiki guide.
