Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands Opening a Public PvP Beta Later This Month

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands Opening a Public PvP Beta Later This Month

Ghost War will be available at the end of the month.

Ubisoft will be opening up an open beta for an upcoming PvP mode update for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands. Starting September 21 through the 25th, players can try a stand-alone open beta that will be available for both players who own a copy of the game, and those who don't. The full mode will only be available for owners of the game as a free update.

The new PvP mode is called Ghost War and two teams of four will battle it out in a team deathmatch based on the tactical squad mode from the base game. Ubisoft says that strategy will be as important as kills in their PvP mode, which makes sense given the game's focus on hardcore, military gameplay.

The open beta will include six out of the planned 12 classes, and five out of the eight multiplayer maps. Other features include suppressing fire and sound marker gameplay to further create a true-to-life military strategy game mode.

Ubisoft will premiere the open beta on the company's official Twitch account on September when players can pre-load the beta.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon is one of the best selling console games this year, but will be a test to see if Ubisoft can continue keeping player's attention which the studio's other online competitive game, For Honor, has been struggling with. And of course there is other competition from games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
