Ghost Recon Wildlands Will Host an Open Beta for its PvP Mode, Ghost War

It will be a new 4v4 competitive multiplayer mode.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands lifted the veil on the open beta test for its PvP mde today. Titled "Ghost War", the open beta will be available on all platforms this summer, and will be included in a free update later this year.

Ghost War allows two groups of players to team up in a four vs. four deathmatch that will function like the tactical squad play. Ubisoft is promising big, open maps, and character classes to best utilize strategy when trying to murder each other. These new strategic mechanics include suppressing fire and sound markers.

Ubisoft released a video trailer for the open beta today. And while it doesn't really give any new information that wasn't already provided to us, you can get a look at some of the new multiplayer maps which apparently feature dynamic weather. I actually think this is a pretty cool system for a multiplayer match and I can't think of anything comparable, at least off the top of my head.

I'd be interested to see how Ghost Wars compares to the current third-person multiplayer shooter of the day, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. Grand Theft Auto V also recently released a competitive multiplayer mode similar to Battlegrounds, and it's hard to not start comparing third-person multiplayer shooters to the current popular standard.
