Ubisoft is finally making good on its promise as Ghost Recon Wildlands is finally getting a PvP mode the company’s dubbing as “Ghost War.” Before that officially drops though, owners and non-owners will be able to test the mayhem out in a standalone open beta that will be available to everyone regardless if they own the game or not!
You read that right! The Ghost Recon Wildlands PvP beta will be a standalone client, and will start this September 21 and finish on September 25. Players will be able to pre-load the beta client as early as September 19. Check out the announcement trailer above, with another trailer featuring the classes below.
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 customisation 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.
Will you be part of the Ghost War crew later this month? Stay tuned for our gameplay impressions of it once it’s up.
