Paris – Ubisoft is releasing a film that introduces the real-life stories behind its Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands game.
The feature-length film will introduce key figures from the Bolivian drug trade in South America around which the game’s fictional narrative has been created. The documentary is presented by author Rusty Young, known for his book Marching Powder, which documents the true story of convicted drug smuggler Thomas McFadden, who spent time in a Bolivian prison.
Travelling through Bolivia, Colombia and North America, Young discusses the South American cocaine trade with figures on both sides of the law – from coca farmers to Special Forces soldiers dedicated to fighting the illegal drug trade to George Jung, ‘the man known for hooking North America on cocaine’.
The game is the latest instalment in the Tom Clancy Ghost Recon series and features players fighting as part of the Ghosts, an elite special operations unit deployed by the US government to tackle the Santa Blanca drugs cartel in Bolivia.
