Ghost Recon Wildlands is a third-person tactical shooter developed by Ubisoft Paris and Ubisoft Milan. It was released in 2017 on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
This is another entry in the fabled Tom Clancy series of video games. It’s well-known for having an expansive open-world setting and the 10th entry in the long-running Ghost Recon franchise.
I remember playing the first Ghost Recon with friends over LAN in 2001. Man, it was so much fun going to war in Georgia as a co-op only to get deadly wounded by Russian snipers.
The first Ghost Recon was a new approach to the war in video games, not at least because stealth tactics were amazingly important.
Ghost Recon Wildlands continues the team-based tactical approach to combat and invites players to be corporate to survive. And the game is available on multiple platforms.
So is Ghost Recon Wildlands cross-platform?
No, Ghost Recon Wildlands isn’t cross-platform, which means you can’t crossplay with friends on consoles if you’re running Ghost Recon Wildlands on Microsoft Windows and vice versa. Also, there’s no crossplay between Xbox and PlayStation or Stadia. However, Wildlands is cross-gen through backward compatibility though at a locked frame rate (see FAQ below).

Ghost Recon Wildlands takes place in Bolivia in 2019. A Mexican drug cartel known as the Santa Blanca Cartel controls several regions in the country.
They’re led by a brutal man known as El Sueno, and a Ghost Recon fireteam has been sent in to deal with the situation. Your team will be up against the might of a brutal drug cartel that is properly entrenched in the area.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is a tactical cover-based shooter from a third-person perspective. However, there’s an optional first-person view for aiming your gun.
You’ll also be exploring an open-world environment, which means you have a lot of freedom. Players must choose how to approach things to take down a vicious drug cartel.
There are many opportunities for you to play the game your way. You’ll find many missions you’ll need to do, but you can start the missions in several ways.
For example, you might choose to parachute in from a helicopter, but you could also walk or drive a vehicle to get there. Using stealth to your advantage in this game to gain a tactical leg up on your enemies is advantageous.
