Ubisoft has released the Ghost Recon Wildlands New Assignment update which brings a tonne of new PvP content to the title. The New Assignment is a free update which marks the end of the first year of post-launch content for Ghost Recon Wildlands.

The three new classes introduced in the Ghost Recon Wildlands New Assignment update are;

  • The Trapper: an expert shooter equipped with a semi-automatic sniper rifle with the ability to mark downed enemies and deploy remote KO-gas traps to stun and damage enemies.
  • The Guerilla: a support-class specialized in diversion tactics and equipped with a smoke-grenade launcher drone.
  • The Stalker: a sharpshooter specialized in silently dispatching her enemies thanks to her special abilities.

In addition to the three new classes introduced in New Assignment, two new maps have been added; Refinery and Cliffside.

Both new maps are only available for use in Extraction mode. Ubisoft has also introduced a range of changes and fixes to PvP and PvE based on player feedback.

Of the changes introduced, the most important is the map voting function. Players will be able to vote for one of three maps each from a different game mode. 

Season Pass holders will gain immediate access to the three new classes. Those without a Season Pass will need to spend in-game Prestige to unlock the classes.
