I forgot Ghost Recon Wildlands existed

Here's the trailer that refreshed my memory

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, revealed last year at Ubisoft's E3 conference, has become a distant memory for me. I completely forgot it existed until the publisher emailed us about a new trailer, at which point the key words all came rushing back to my brain -- "Bolivia," "open world," "drug cartels," -- oh yeah, that Ghost Recon.

I actually don't mind the "go find tons of stuff on the map!" Ubisoft formula in small doses (Far Cry and Assassin's Creed basically), but putting it into the Ghost series just seems...questionable. Maybe it'll be good! We could really use more well-crafted tactical shooters these days that don't try to emulate Call of Duty.

We'll probably see Wildlands in two weeks (!) at E3 2016, at which point I will remember it once again.

If you're really into spending money on special editions and whatnot, here are the official details for those (yes multiple, this is Ubisoft we're talking about!):

Standard Edition available for $59.99 – Take down the cartel, become a ghost and explore Bolivia.  A few years from now, Bolivia has become the largest cocaine producer in the world.  As a Ghost, you must stop the cartel by any means necessary.  Create and fully customize your Ghost, weapons, and gear.  Lead your team and take down the cartel, either solo or with up to three friends.

Deluxe Edition available for $69.98 -Includes the Standard Edition and the digital Deluxe Pack which includes: the Huntsman rifle and motorbike, three emblems, three weapon camo, three character customization items and a XP booster.

Gold Edition available for $99.99 – Includes the Deluxe pack and Seasons Pass content, giving players access to two major expansions as well as exclusive digital content featuring equipment packs, an exclusive vehicle and epic weapons.

Collector’s Edition Standard available for $119.99, Deluxe available for $129.99 and Gold available for $159.99 – Includes the edition of your choice with a Santa Muerte figurine and collectible posters designed by Ken Taylor.

Fans who pre-order the game will also receive a bonus mission, “The Peruvian Connection.”  Players will embark on a perilous mission among the high mountains of Bolivia to break the alliance between Santa Blanca and the Peruvian Cartels.
