Sign Up Open for the Ghost Recon Wildlands Closed Beta

Sign up is now available for the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta, available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.



Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta

We’re going to stop calling it Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands now, that’s an absolute mouthful.

Betas have been going well for Ubisoft, in terms of uptake and player numbers. The Division‘s beta was enormous, drawing in over 6 million players, while the Steep beta – which we loved – turned out really special.

It’s no surprise then that, shortly after a gameplay trailer was unveiled unto the world, Ubisoft have opened registration for the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta.


The Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta will run from February 3 – February 6, 2017. That’s a whole weekend of open world, modern military combat on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. We don’t know the exact timings of the beta window yet; they’ll usually let us know the details around timezones a little nearer the time. We do know that once you’re registered, you can expect to be able to start the pre-load on February 1, 2017.

We’re also not entirely sure what’s included in the beta and what’s not, but given the game’s open world mechanics and four-player co-op, you can be fairly sure the online play components will form part of the testing. This is primarily so Ubisoft can shake out any bugs and – hopefully – learn to size the game’s server farm appropriately before release. Players will also be able to play with AI squad-mates, if they prefer to go solo.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
