Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Update 1.28 improves Guerrilla Mode, brings PC-specific improvements

Ubisoft has released a brand new update for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. According to the release notes, patch 1.28 brings numerous improvements and fixes to the Guerrilla Mode. Several issues that were contributing to the difficulty have been resolved, as well as errors with matchmaking and launching sessions without full squads.

Moreover, update 1.28 comes with some PC-specific fix and improvements. For instance, it improves performance when using Nvidia Ansel with Nvidia driver 418.91, fixes an issue in Ghost mode where weapons switch back to default between play sessions and an issue in Guerrilla mode where subtitles would only show for the host of a party in a co-op session.

Furthermore, this latest update comes with some PvP tweaks and fixes. For example, it limits the number of simultaneous mines deployable by the Sapper’s drone to 3, reduces the health of Sapper’s drones to bring it more in line with the drones used by Medic and Guerrilla classes and improves the ping function in Ghost War where spamming the Ping input caused high ping conditions.

As always, this patch will be auto-downloaded from Epic Games Store or UPLAY the next time you launch their clients, and you can find its complete changelog below.
