A new Ghost Recon Wildlands El Tio de la Mina event is now available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In this new event, you need to prevent miners from dying. The mission to defeat the self-proclaimed El Tio is now live and will last until November 1.
El Tio is a god of the underworld in Bolivian mining culture. His origins can be dated all the way back to pre-Columbian times to an Uru god called Wari. El Tio looks like a mixture of devil and goat.
He is particularly important to the miners of Bolivia, specifically in the region of Potosi where people traditionally leave offerings like coca leaves, alcohol, or tobacco to a statue of El Tio on their way to work in exchange for protection. The legend says that those who disrespect him suffer pain and death.
