Ubisoft is making a ‘Wildlands’ documentary about the South American drug trade

Ubisoft is making a real-world documentary investigating the South American drug trade.

To tie in with the launch of Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Ubisoft is making a hard-hitting documentary to give greater context to the South American drug trade upon which the game’s fictional Bolivian setting is based.

In a press release, Ubisoft provides more insight into the interesting companion doc:

“This feature length documentary explores the real-life stories of key figures, who have been at the centre of the war on drugs from the past thirty years. Viewers will accompany narrator Rusty Young, author of New York Times best-seller, Marching Powder, as he meets the people, who have been involved in shaping the cocaine trade in South America, many of whom are telling their stories for the first time.”
