Mercenaries is an eight-player free-for-all PvPvE
gameplay experience. The objective is to call for rescue, locate and reach the
extraction point, then be the first to board the chopper.
At the beginning of the match, the extraction point is
unknown and players will have no ranged weapons, gear or items. Players will
need to locate and activate radio transmitters to shrink the possible extract
zone on the map. In the meantime, players will fight to be the first to gain
intel on transmitter locations while looting gear, weapons and money. After the
first player has activated three transmitters, the chopper will head to the
extraction point and once landed, the location will be revealed to everyone.
The first player to fill their extraction gauge and board the chopper wins.
Mercenaries mode introduces a wealth of new mechanics
Looting for Gear: Players start the game just
with a melee weapon and will need to find the best gear, weapons and
consumables to fight the Unidad forces and enemy players. If a player dies,
they will lose all of the loot gathered and start at square one when they
Armor: Mercenaries mode will feature a new
health and armor system. Based on the gear players pick up, an armor bar will
appear. This bar will absorb a percentage of damage based on the penetration
capability of the opponent’s weapon.
Health: If players are hit by a weapon that
deals penetration damage, they will bleed and gradually lose a percentage of
their health. If they are injured, they will be able to loot three different
types of healing items to get back into fighting shape: medikits, bandages and syringes.
Destructible Doors: Destructible doors can be
opened with CQC, behind which players may find intel, loot, or cover to aid
them in their fight. Players will need to think tactically about when to use
this as opponents will be able to hear the breaking doors if they are close by.
Additionally, as a thank-you to players, the Lone Wolf
Costume will be given as a reward after completing their first match. Along
with the Lone Wolf Costume, players will be able to receive a series of rewards
based on their wins.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is already available on PlayStation 4.
