Watch A Stealthy Playthrough of a Ghost Recon: Wildlands Mission

They’ll never know what hit them.

Ubisoft has uploaded a new gameplay video for Ghost Recon: Wildlands which shows how a full mission from the game can play out when the players take a stealthy approach.

The 12-minute video is narrated by Wildlands lead developer Dominic Butler, and it shows the same mission which was featured during the game’s E3 demo presentation. However, unlike the E3 demo where a more loud approach was taken, this new video shows how players can approach the same mission in an entirely new way, namely stealth. Since Wildlands features a full day/night cycle and dynamic weather, a squad of players can use the cover of night and a torrential rainstorm to their advantage, making a quiet approach to the Santa Blanca Cartel stronghold which they must infiltrate.

The video does an excellent job of highlighting just how crucial teamwork and coordination are when undergoing missions in Wildlands. Whether you’re playing co-op with your friends or running as a solo player with AI teammates, using tools like the flyable drone and gameplay systems such as Sync Kill (having one player mark targets and then assign them to other players) can make pulling off stealth runs a lot easier. The video shows off one way in which a successful stealth playthrough can be pulled off, but as Butler mentions during the video walkthrough, there are plenty of other ways which can suit many different gameplay styles.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is set to launch on March 7, 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
