Huge Title Update for Ghost Recon Wildlands Introduces Several Mercenary Mode Fixes

Ubisoft’s support for Ghost Recon Wildlands has yet to cease. The title’s latest patch, Title Update 21, is nothing if not massive. Wildlands‘ Title Update 21 recently went live on the PlayStation 4, weighing a whopping 24GB. The update is slightly smaller on PC and Xbox One, clocking in at 21GB on both platforms. Once players are able to dive back into the experience, they’ll notice a slew of fixes particularly with regards to the Mercenary Mode.

Quite a few general fixes are addressed in the new title update, too. However, many of them are comparatively minor in scale. Full patch notes for Ghost Recon Wildlands Title Update 21 are as follows:
