The online co-op squad shooter is opening up its doors. Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta has just been announced by Ubisoft, giving players interested in trying the title out a free weekend full of cartel-shooting action.
The open beta will introduce two provinces to the open world of the game; Itacua and the new Montuyoc area. Itacua is described as the “landing province” of the full game, offering new players their starting point in taking on the Santa Blanca drug cartel. The Muntuyoc region, meanwhile, will task players with breaking up training exercises as the cartel seeks to form a paramilitary force.
Open beta will run from February 23rd until February 27th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Interested players can pre-load the game on the 21st. The entire beta will be available to those who wish to play in co-op mode, and the full game is due to release on March 7th. A video for the announcement can be seen below.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands looks like an excellent co-op shooter, but it also looks like the kind of game that would be better played with friends instead of randomly dropping in and out of single and multiplayer. We’ll have to see how this one works out and whether people will coordinate.
Will you be joining in on the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta? Do you think it’s better to play this game with friends, or do you think that teams can form organically? Give us your thoughts in the comments.
