Understanding the the sure-fire way to get the internet interested in your product is by making creative use of a cat, Ubisoft put one of everyone's feline friends in their new live-action Ghost Recon: Wildlands trailer.
Likely putting an emphasis on the open-world multiplayer title's varied co-op missions, we see a sniper and a spotter perched atop a hillside ready to rid the world of what we can only assume to be three shady crooks.
And as we know from just about every action movie in existence, a long shot that's meant to come swift and true always gives of the slow indication of the lasersight from the stealthy weapon choice. While the cat in the target area surely doesn't play a major role in the criminal activity of the three-man squad, it does attempt to indirectly save the men.
While the green fields of the Wildlands may be colourful, so is Freedom Planet 2
Interested in the bright red dot traveling around the warehouse, we'll never know whether the skilled marksmen deliberately tried to use the furry animal as a distraction by baiting it onto the card table, or just made the most of a bad situation. Either way, it worked. Somehow firing 3 successive shots with a bolt-action rifle, he gets the job done.
If anything, the involvement of the cat acts as the catalyst for a terrible pun. Ubisoft is now in first place for the year with bad trailer gags. Ghost Recon: Wildlands launches March 7. There's still two beta tests planned between now and then.
