Ubisoft announced earlier today that their upcoming open-world shooter and latest edition in the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise will be opening up their doors to a select few players when Wildlands enters its Closed Beta next week.

Available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and our glorious PC platform to those lucky enough to gain acceptance in the upcoming Beta, with pre-loads starting on February 1st. Each accepted gamer into the Closed Beta will be given the ability to invite up to three of their best mates to join in the fun during this three day event.

Introducing players to near-future Bolivia, while exploring the mountainous prosperous province of Itacua, Ghost players must worked together in order to take down key member of the ruthless Santa Blanca drug cartel. During the Closed Beta, all available content is available for single-player and 4 player co-op, and free to utilize a large variety of weapons, tools and vehicles.

Claiming to be the largest open-world action-adventure world to date from the French Company, it’ll be interesting to see just what we can do and see in Ubisoft’s next foray into the massive online open-world, team based shooter genre.

Hopefully they learned a few things over the past year with their popular Tom Clancy’s The Division game, which started off extremely strong but tapered off over the course of a couple a months, but still staying relatively strong thanks to the constant love and attention from the team via regular patches and content updates.

Being someone who’s put in a few hundred hours into The Division, I’m very excited to see what Wildlands has to offer, how it evolves above and beyond the scope of its predecessor. Only time will tell, and that time is soon approaching since Ghost Recon: Wildlands Closed Beta begins February 3rd until February 6th, who knows, perhaps I’ll see you there.

The last gameplay vid (single player) scared me a bit. It didnt look that good but this brings back hope again. I know, I know, this is carefully orchestrated, touched up trailer that is akin to bullshots but I am really eager to get my hands on the beta to see for myself. If i like how it plays, I'm definitely getting Wildlands.

I'm with you Simon, except the "getting it" bit, since $80 bucks is absolutely ridiculous, soo unless I win a copy or fam sharing miraculously works (which it wont) I'll have to wait a little bit, but that's fine, all the bugs will be worked out most definitely, just how Division 1.5+ is a far better game then 1.0 :D
