Rainbow Six Siege and Ghost Recon Wildlands Collide in Operation Archangel
Officially announced today by the folks over at Ubisoft, that the worlds of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be colliding in a free and exclusive crossover mission as part of Special Operation 2. Players will be able to team up with Valkyrie, Twitch and Caveira in this two-part crossover event available today, 24th July 2018, on all platforms.
Exclusive Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege–themed content will be introduced to the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands main campaign and Ghost War PvP mode, including two new Rainbow Six Siege–inspired Ghost War PvP classes and a two-part PvE mission, called Operation Archangel.
The following is the synopsis provided by Ubisoft themselves:
The Rainbow Six Siege Operator Caveira has gone missing. Valkyrie, a longtime friend of Karen Bowman, has tracked her down to Bolivia. With the help of Twitch, the Ghosts will follow a trail of clues, to learn more about why Caveira is in Bolivia, and also about her troubled past.
This special challenge is playable solo or with up to four players in co-op and can be found in the province of Caimanes.
Upon completing Operation Archangel before 14th August 2018, players will be rewarded with Caveira gloves. When equipped, players will be able to perform Caveira’s iconic CQC move and automatically unlock the position of all enemies in the vicinity. In addition to the rewards for completing the challenge, players can further customize and arm their Ghosts with the Rainbow Six Gear Pack, which includes new customization items and weapons such as Caveira’s iconic Luison handgun, a fully customizable HK 416 assault rifle, a head-wrapped shemagh inspired by Valkyrie and a skull balaclava inspired by Twitch.
Special Operation 2 will also bring two new Ghost War PvP classes, Toxic and Surgeon, which were inspired by Smoke and Doc of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Toxic uses his drone to deploy a large cloud of toxic smoke, which allows players to both trap the enemy team and create area denials.
Surgeon on the other hand uses his stim pistol to revive teammates from a distance, creating new opportunities to deploy support strategies at medium range. In addition to two new classes, this update will also contain two new PvP maps, Factory and Checkpoint, a new spectate feature called Observer mode and Ghost mode, a higher difficulty permadeath PvE game mode.
Ghost War players will be able to get seven-day early access to the new classes, maps and Ghost mode with the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Year 2 Pass. For newcomers, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be up to 67% off from today until 31st July 2018.
