Ghost Recon: Wildlands Update #4 arrives |

The new patch will fix issues with gamers seeing through walls, and certain spots of the map where you would get stuck or fall through the map. Ubisoft has also polished up the aim consistency when shooting from behind cover, and they've also introduced a new short time to kill alerted enemies to avoid failing the mission (in the stealth missions of Wildlands).

There are also some PC-specific fixes, with the Steam and Uplay versions of the game being automatically updated, so you won't need to worry about any manual updates.
