Itching to try out Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ upcoming PVP mode, Ghost War? Well, you’re in luck then, as Ubisoft has just announced that an open beta test will take place later this month across all applicable platforms.
Running from September 21-25, this standalone preview/technical test will begin accepting preloads on September 19th. Through it, players will be able to try out the upcoming multiplayer addition to one of last year’s most successful games. Not only that, but they’ll also be able to get some practice in before the full thing goes live — as a free update, no less — later this fall.
In Ghost War, two groups of players will take part in a four-versus-four (4v4) team deathmatch experience that builds on the tactical squad play from the main game, where strategy is equally as important as skill. Teams will choose from a roster of varied classes across three categories – Assault, Marksman and Support – that fill specific roles on the battlefield as they navigate large-scale open maps and take down their enemies. The open beta will feature six of the twelve distinct classes, each with their own varied characteristics, weapons, perks and customization options, and five of the eight unique maps. Ghost War will also integrate new PvP mechanics, including suppressing fire and sound markers, to create a true military-strategic, team-based multiplayer mode.
Stay tuned for more information pertaining to Ghost Recon: Wildlands and its Ghost War mode.
