Ghost Recon Wildlands is the next Tom Clancy title from Ubisoft, taking the series into a more open world environment, with the addition of co-op and strategic assault. However, before you start taking down Bolivian criminals, you may want to dress yourself for the occasion, and Ghost Recon will give you the means to do so.
“From the gender of your Ghost to the clothing they wear, you can customise more than 12 different elements of your character’s appearance, including their hat, headset, glasses, hairstyle, fabric colours and patterns, and more. This flexibility results in an exponential amount of custom combinations, and gives you the freedom to create a Ghost that reflects the way you play.”
“It’s important for player immersion to be able to create your own Ghost,” says Laurent Fischer, lead and technical director – character specialist at Ubisoft Paris. “If the player can identify with their character, they will feel more immersed in the story and create their own adventures.”
“Above all else, being able to customise your character is cool,” he adds. “When we announced the game, we saw that character customisation was one of biggest requests from our community, so that confirmed we were on the right track.”
“In order to choose what they wear, we use a dose of common sense. For example, no shorts, no fragile clothes, and at least a minimal hydration backpack,” Fisher explains. “We also choose elements that are in line with our creative vision and the cinematographic aspect we want to give to the game. We want to be fun while respecting authenticity.”
With that, the environment also affects your clothes. As you’d expect, lying in a swamp or on muddy fields will eventually leave marks on your outfit. Whether this can be removed by taking a dive in a local lake or from jumping down a waterfall, we shall see.
