The popular Ghost Recon Wildlands El Tio de la Mina challenge is returning to Ubisoft’s shooter. The publisher announced today that the challenge is coming back due to “popular demand.” The challenge returns today and players will have until January 31, 2018 to “discover the legend of El Tio de la Mina and learn what is fact and what is fiction.”

While there are many things about the game to like, that isn’t to say that that everything in Wildlands is rainbows and heavily armored unicorns. The core mechanics have their own fair share of issues. For one, interacting with both collectible and mission-specific items in the environment can be a bit of a chore. Just because the on-screen prompt would indicate that you can interact with something, doesn’t mean that’s necessarily the case. In fact, much to my frustration, that was actually rarely the case. Unless you were directly head-on with the very front of the object, they would be damn near impossible to activate. Sure, this may sound tedious to complain about, but over the span of countless hours, it begins to wear on you.
Though far from perfect, Ghost Recon Wildlands is one of the most effective franchise reboots in recent memory. It manages to build upon the key squad-based mechanics that set the series apart, while not feeling the need to pander to the established fan base. The result is a fantastically realized open world that legitimately feels like it could be a real geographic location. Now that I’ve had a taste of the new Ghost Recon, I couldn’t imagine going back.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
