The new PvE mission will be playable solo or co-op in teams of up to four, and will offer exclusive rewards including Fisher's famous goggles for players who complete it prior to the end of the challenge period. This new special challenge is playable solo or with up to four players in co-op and is one of the most hard missions the Ghosts have ever faced.

While details about the mission, which is titled Special Operation 1, are scarce, it is confirmed that players will partner up with Sam Fisher to take down a base somewhere in a futuristic Bolivia. Splinter Cell is the theme of this first Year 2 content drop, which is exciting on its own, but most notable is that Fisher is voiced by Michael Ironside. Other weapons and cosmetic items can also be unlocked through effort or in-game currency. The entire game will be free starting April 12 to 15, most likely U.S. time. Players will also get to customize AI teammates with the clothing you unlock for your character. "The Year 2 Pass is available on the PlayStation Store for $29.99". Sabotage will have five exclusive maps, a new class, and perks for players to enjoy.

Ubisoft's image above shows some of the weaponry and equipment that the Echelon class will include, but if you can't make out the text under the "Special Ability" and "Playstyle" sections, we've got you covered below.

"We are all super-excited to bring such an iconic character as Sam Fisher into Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands", Nouredine Abboud, Senior Producer, Ubisoft Paris, said in a statement.

To see a quick preview of all the content that's coming with the next update on April 10, Ubisoft shared a video that gave a rundown of everything that's on the way.

Released in 2017, "Ghost Recon: Wildlands" is a tactical shooter for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Here, players will gain access to Special Operations I as well.
