Ghost Recon: Wildlands Is Getting A Tie-In Documentary About The Drug Trade

Ghost Recon: Wildlands looks like a massive departure from previous games in the series, swapping out linear missions for a South American open-world adventure in a fictional Bolivia ripped apart by the war on drugs. It's even getting its own companion documentary, called Wildlands, about the continent's massive drug trade and the battles to contain it.

The documentary is presented by Australian author Rusty Young, who wrote the fantastic Marching Powder about his experiences living inside Bolivia's infamous San Pedro prison for three months, interviewing drug trafficker Thomas McFadden on his five-year stint behind bars.

After watching this video and seeing some more Ghost Recon gameplay, I'm looking forward to both the Wildlands documentary — which is out on March 6th in Australia — and the game, which is out on March 7th. [YouTube / Ubisoft / Wildlands]


    I watched the 1 minute 40 trailer this morning and have to say I'm looking forward to both the game and documentary. Marching Powder is brilliant, so to see Rusty Young being involved is a positive sign.

    Slightly different tack, but I'd also highly recommend reading Killing Pablo by Mark Bowden (the author that wrote the original Black Hawk Down book) to anyone wanting to read more about the South/Central American drug trade and cartels.
