As part of its marketing effort to make sure Ghost Recon Wildlands gets as much attention before it ships out, Ubisoft has partnered with online retailer Amazon and streaming platform Twitch for a Ghost Recon Wildlands live-action video titled “Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel.”
Set to premiere this February 16, War Within the Cartel will be produced by Robert Orci (Star Trek, Fringe) and features TIP “T.I.” Harris (Get Hard). Check out the rest of the details below straight from the press release.
Scheduled to premiere on February 16, 2017, War Within The Cartel will spotlight the Santa Blanca cartel, a ruthless group that has turned Bolivia into a narco-state. War Within The Cartel will be streamed on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel (www.twitch.tv/Ubisoft) and will be immediately available on demand via Amazon Prime Video following the premiere.
War Within the Cartel takes viewers inside the inner workings of the Santa Blanca drug cartel, controlled by the revered yet ruthless leader, El Sueño. In the aftermath of an attack on their compound, the organization’s senior leadership (Head of Security – El Muro, Head of Production – El Yayo, Head of Operations – Nidia Flores and Head of Influence – El Cardenal) seeks out a traitor within their midst to exact deadly retribution. The action packed story culminates in the events leading up to the beginning of the game as an elite Special Forces unit, the Ghosts, is called in to dismantle the cartel. War Within The Cartel is produced by Los Angeles-based digital studio, Legion of Creatives, and features Grammy winner, entrepreneur, actor and hip hop legend, Tip “T.I.” Harris playing the role of Marcus, one of the members of the Santa Blanca cartel.

The project is produced by Steve Ecclesine, Avi Youabian. Ryan Landels, and Alex Barkaloff.
