Going live this morning, the newest Ghost Recon Wildlands update (aka Title Update 2) for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is around 3GB in size and includes game-wide connectivity and stability improvements, as well the option to turn off radios in the game by default and the option to choose the type of vehicle you want to spawn when using the Drop Vehicle rebel skill.

Here’s the full list of patch notes for the new Wildlands update:

Missions/Narration

We received reports of some players having issues with certain missions in the game. After investigating the causes, we have implemented fixes so they can now have a smooth experience. We also fixed an XP farming exploit related to the “Rebellion Rising” mission, which created interference with the co-op experience.

  • Adjusted various missions markers & GPS pathfinding.
  • The following missions are now unlocked correctly for players who reported issues: Gold Rush, Sueño’s proposition, Sandoval Dead body, El Cerebro
  • Adjusted various mission triggers in order to smoothen the player’s progress and game experience.

  • Fixed infinite XP farming exploit on “Rebellion Rising” mission.
  • NPCs now exit the vehicle properly in “Stop the Convoy” missions

User Interface

We implemented various fixes and tweaks related to trophy and weapon packs unlocking. We also fixed an issue related to the Charactersmith model not being positioned correctly. On top of that, players who love to play with the HUD completely hidden will now be able to select the type of intel they want to collect when they interact with files or NPCs.
