The Ghost Recon Wildlands patch notes detailed by Ubisoft for today’s update outline a good number of changes and additions, beginning with PvP. There is a brand new mode added to Ghost War called Extraction. Similar to Rainbow Six Siege, teams take turns defending or attacking a compound in order to extract one of two hostages.
