Ubisoft has officially unveiled Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel, a live-action video which will tie into the events of the upcoming Ghost Recon Wildlands game.
According to a press release from Ubisoft, War Within the Cartel will be a 30-minute video and will serve as a prequel to the events of the game. The video will also feature actor/rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris in a prominent role as mentioned in its official description:
“War Within the Cartel takes viewers inside the inner workings of the Santa Blanca drug cartel, controlled by the revered yet ruthless leader, El Sueño. In the aftermath of an attack on their compound, the organization’s senior leadership (Head of Security – El Muro, Head of Production – El Yayo, Head of Operations – Nidia Flores and Head of Influence – El Cardenal) seeks out a traitor within their midst to exact deadly retribution. The action packed story culminates in the events leading up to the beginning of the game as an elite Special Forces unit, the Ghosts, is called in to dismantle the cartel. War Within The Cartel is produced by Los Angeles-based digital studio, Legion of Creatives, and features Grammy winner, entrepreneur, actor and hip hop legend, Tip “T.I.” Harris playing the role of Marcus, one of the members of the Santa Blanca cartel.”
The full video is set to debut on both Twitch and Amazon Video on February 16, but you can watch a preview of what the video contains below. Meanwhile, the Ghost Recon Wildlands game will launch on March 7 for current-gen consoles and PC.
