Ghost Recon: Wildlands Update 5 Patch Notes

Ghost Recon Wildlands Closed Beta

Ubisoft have released a patch for their open world tactical shooter Ghost Recon: Wildlands. This update brings bug fixes, improvements and a new way to play the game.

The new Tier 1 mode brings a new difficulty option and also changes the way players level up. Players start at level 50 and have to make their way down to level 1. This is done by earning tier points which also unlock rewards.

Full patch notes for the update can be seen below.
