Ghost Recon: Wildlands is one of the first big-hitters of Q1 in 2017. Want to experience the game before it releases in March? Ubisoft will be hosting a closed beta with the game starting on 3rd February.
Wildlands is set in Bolivia and entails the player assuming control of a single member of the Ghosts team: a highly specialised unit with the objective of stopping the spread of drug trafficking around the varied ecosystems of South America. Ubisoft have promised their “largest open world” to date in Wildlands, with detailed environments ranging from lush jungles, to mountain ranges, to salt flats to llama farms (fun fact: the llama is the national animal of Bolivia).
Players invited to play the closed beta on the 3rd, or those with a key, can expect to have a fully hands-on experience with the upcoming tactical-shooter. Players can invite up to three friends to join their team and take down the dangerous Santa Blanca drug cartel for good.
The beta will run from the 3rd until the 6th, so players will have a good three days worth of gameplay in order to gain a decent impression of how Wildlands has shaped up.
One of the most exciting aspects that players will get to enjoy in the beta is the different possibilities of play that the open-world nature of the gameplay warrants. Ubisoft have stressed and encouraged different methods and styles in order for the player to eliminate members of the Cartel by any means necessary. This freedom will allow the player to push for more inventive ways to secure the objective of the Ghosts.
The Ghost Recon: Wildlands closed beta will run from 3 Feb – 6 Feb on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Register for an invite to the beta on Ubisoft’s website here.
