The first Beta for Ghost Recon Wildlands introduced us to a game with a lot of potential, that still needs a little polish. Offering the entire first, of 21, sections of the finished product, it had a good 8 hours or so of content.
But next week, February 23rd to the 27th, the open Beta will allow us access to the second area as well. Which gives a potential sixteen hours of gameplay, free, for absolutely everyone. Also, if you play the Beta, then play the full game before the end of March on the same Uplay account, there’s an extra mission up for grabs.
“The Unidad Conspiracy” has you starting a war between the titular Unidad (Wildlands’ regional police force) and the Santa Bianca drug cartel, the game’s big bad. Pretty cool stuff, considering Unidad are actually in SB’s pocket in their entirety. This suggests its not an insignificant amount of content, and will involve more than just shooting people in the face and using a helicopter as a mobile sniping platform…which is some really damn good fun by the way.
Ghost Recon Wildlands will release on March 7th across all major platforms.
London, UK — February 16th, 2017 — Today, Ubisoft® announced that the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands Open Beta will be available to all players from February 23rd to 27th, 2017, on current-gen consoles and PC. Players eager to jump into the Ghost’s boots and tame the Wildlands will be able to pre-load the Open Beta starting this Monday, February 20th, 2017.
Each player entering this Open Beta will get access to an exclusive mission – the “Unidad Conspiracy” mission, in which players will spark a war between the Unidad, a local corrupt militia group, and the Santa Blanca cartel – by playing the full game before March 31st, using the same Ubisoft account.
The Open Beta will introduce players to two provinces among the 21 of the final game: Itacua, a flourishing and mountainous province where the grip of the cartel is looser, ideal to perfect your sniping skills and get introduced to the Wildlands. Montuyoc, set in the snowy Altiplano, and the second province available in this Open Beta, is much more challenging – players who have suppressed the Itacua bosses will gain XP and skills boosts allowing them to face this dangerous area, home to Santa Blanca elite training centers. Players can of course confront Montuyoc right away… at their own risk.
As in the full game, all the content in the Open Beta will be playable with up to three friends on the same platform via four player co-op, or in single player. Players are free to utilise a large variety of vehicles, tactical equipment and weapons to get the job done.
Set in the largest action-adventure open world ever created by Ubisoft, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands takes place in Bolivia, a few years from now, as the country has been turned by the vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel into a narco-state. Players are tasked with eliminating the cartel by any means necessary. The massive and responsive open world encourages a variety of playstyles, allowing players the freedom to choose how they execute any and all missions.
