Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be getting a free update on May 2. Titled Operation Oracle, it features two new missions where you work to extract a captured Skell Tech Engineer. He knows sensitive secrets that must be protected at all costs.
Once the update installs, the mission is immediately available if you've already completed the first mission in the game. You can select it while you're at Montuyoc Province. Once completed, the player will unlock a bracelet that allows for a new finishing move, and the ability to put Walker’s tattoo on your arm.
However, this is more than a content update, it also contains a myriad of patches, fixes, and other updates. Notably, there are matchmaking improvements in Guerrilla mode and fixes for despawning and replication bugs. Other improvements include fixed subtitles, voices that no longer cut out, and patched issues with item unlocks.
On the PC, the update improves performance with Nvidia’s Ansel capture tool when running the latest WHQL Nvidia drivers. Also fixed is an issue in Ghost mode where weapon changes didn't save between sessions. Finally, an issue in Guerrilla Mode that would cut out subtitles for everyone but the host of a co-op session no longer exists.
For every platform, the update fixes various mission bugs, including animation issues, a text spacing issue when using Asian languages, and a known issue where Bonus XP would not be awarded from XP boosters.
In PVP mode, we have the following rebalances and changes:
- Limited the number of simultaneous mines deployable by the Sapper's drone to 3.
- Reduced the health of Sapper’s drones to bring it more in line with the drones used by Medic and Guerrilla classes.
- Fixed an issue in Ghost War allowing an exploit (known as Crouch-run) by using emotes and Pistol-specific abilities.
- Fixed several collision issues on several PvP maps.
