7 Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems & Fixes

The cities and towns of Bolivia form the new open-world playground for video game developer and publisher Ubisoft’s latest new title. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is the company’s most anticipated video game launch this spring. Players can create their own Ghost agents, then use those agents and a bevy of equipment to drop into Bolivia. They are there to deal a powerful drug cartel the justice that it deserves. Available now on Xbox One, PC and PS4, it should be a huge seller, that is if Ghost Recon Wildlands problems don’t ruin it for gamers.

In recent years, Ubisoft has made a name for itself by creating detailed, ever-growing online worlds. Ghost Recon Wildlands is no different. The entire in-game world is a huge country, with different environmental ecosystems and challenges. Players can pursue targets alone, or team up with other Ghosts. Because of this, online multiplayer and co-operative play are weaved into the fabric of the game. That’s where those Ghost Recon Wildlands problems come in. Any huge game on three different platforms is going to have issues. Early reports indicate that there are audio issues, reward program issues and problems with in-game Intel missions not working correctly.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Add-On DLC Activation Delay on PS4

Ghost Recon Wildlands is an online role-playing game, with season passes and add-on content to compliment that. Right now, that is one of the game’s biggest liabilities. Ubisoft’s servers seem to be swamped with users all trying to claim the content included with their season pass and versions of the game.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Random Performance Issues

Every version of Ghost Recon Wildlands has a bug that slows down the frame rate when gamers find themselves in cities and towns with lots of people. Ubisoft is acknowledging that there’s an issue in a forum thread but doesn’t know when it’ll be fixed.

Ubisoft is aware of the issue. The company confirms so in a recent addition to the Ghost Recon Wildlands FAQ. Basically, the company is asking users to give it a chance to catch up to demand. “Please continue to try activating your content throughout the day. Once we have confirmed the codes are active and all content can be activated and redeemed, we will update this banner accordingly. Thank you for your patience during this time,” Ubisoft says in the FAQ entry.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Can’t Launch the Game on PC

PC gamers are facing an issue where Ghost Recon Wildlands won’t launch if it’s not installed on the same hard drive that holds Windows itself. Ubisoft recommends that users go directly to the game’s folder on their separate hard drive and try to launch the game from there by right-clicking and Running it as administrator.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Ghost Recon Wildlands HQ Slow Sign In

Companion apps are back in gaming. At least, Ubisoft is trying its hand at them again. One of the more common Ghost Recon Wildlands problems being reported is related to this companion experience.

The app is called Ghost Recon Wildlands HQ, and many people are having trouble signing into the app. Unfortunately, the only solution to this problem seems to be waiting until there are fewer people downloading and trying the app. The app is available for both Android and iPhone.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Intel Gathering Bug

In Ghost Recon Wildlands, players don’t just rush into missions all the time. They’ve got to collect Intel, and that’s another thing owners of the final version of the game are having trouble with. There’s a topic dedicated to the problem in the Ghost Recon Wildlands forums.

One user in the forum topic notes that his instance of the issue was caused by changes he made in the game’s settings. By turning on the Notifications option in settings, he was able to get rid of the Intel gathering bug.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Choppy Game Play After Hitting the Xbox Button

Ubisoft says that it already has a save in the works for Xbox One owners that experience choppy gameplay when they attempt to load the Xbox Guide or the Xbox Home area with the game still open. There’s no time frame for when the patch that contains the fix will arrive for everyone. This issue and other graphics issues are among the Ghost Recon Wildlands known problems noted in a recent forum post.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Mission Problems

    Xbox one. Installed game will not launch. Once ‘installed’ all actions on Xbox dashboard lag. No quick fix methods suggested on Xbox help page working. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times without success. Thought disk might be corrupted, just returned from exchanging for a new disk but same issues persist. Xbox will still launch bluray and other games without difficulties. Please advise.

    On the first mission where u are to interrogate the lieutenant, the yellow dot is there but the lieutenant is not. I’ve killed all the others but the guy in the white and black suit is not there. I watched YouTube and there is a guy on the phone u suppose to interrogate, but on mine he’s not there.

    Had a problem with the HQ app. I installed it and syn it as per instructions. However I could not get satellite tracking working just made a clicking sound and no map. Tried a number of fixes but none worked. I found by accident that rebooting my phone cured the problem. This was an Android device don’t know about Apple devices.
