Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands has received its fourth major update for PS4, PC, and Xbox One today. Weighing around 15GB depending on what version you have, the New Assignment update introduces a wealth of extra content, chief among which includes the Trapper, Stalker, and Guerrilla classes.

Trapper and Stalker share some basic principles in the sense they are sniper classes, although they do differ. For example, Trappers are able to set up knock-out gas traps from a distance and passively flag up targets on the HD, while Stalkers have the ability to mark enemies without them receiving any notification. Finally, the Guerrilla class takes on a supporting role that provide smoke grenades via drone. 

In addition, the open-world tactical shooter has gained two additional maps for Extraction mode, namely Refinery and Cliffside, as well as a number of bug fixes and the ability to vote for one of three maps at the start of a match. Read the full patch notes here.

Ubisoft recently introduced microtransactions into the game with Battle Crates, which cough up randomised cosmetic items. If this sounds like your cup of tea, you can snap them up in-game for 400 credits.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands was released on PS4, PC, and Xbox One in March 2017, although Colm wasn’t quite convinced that the transition to open-world territory paid off.
