Ghost Recon Wildlands Narcos Road DLC
Another one of the major developments of the last week was the launch of Ghost Recon Wildlands Narcos DLC. According to the fans, this new DLC lack one crucial feature that the fans were waiting for a very long time.
The Narcos DLC includes tons of new content but it lacks the much-awaited PvP mode. In March, a new mode was announced for the game, but no release date has been revealed. Furthermore, no information about the features and game mode has been released.
According to Ubisoft’s CEO-
“I understand the excitement for PvP to come and some of the frustration as well.
“Though, we don’t have any official dates or details to share quite yet. These items will be coming. Apologies.”
Ubisoft also announced last week that the new PvP mode will be included in a free update for the Ghost Recon Wildlands. It will offer Tactical Class-based 4v4 team combats and will put players’ skills to the test.
Ubisoft still hasn’t revealed when the much-awaited PvP mode will become part of the game. As rumors suggest, another update is currently in works. Hopefully, it’ll bring the PvP mode to the game.
