Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta

Following Ubisoft’s massive betas for The Division, Steep and For Honor, it’s now Ghost Recon Wildlands’ turn.

We’d normally do a bit of exposition at this point about why betas are important – check performance, gauge server sizing, reveal bugs and flaws – but we write these things about Ubisoft games so often, we’ll take it as read that you all know what it’s for.

Ubisoft’s latest online endeavour has already had a closed beta, back in January, but now the dates for the Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta have been confirmed by the giant publisher. They’ve also released a trailer to go with the announcement.

Players who take part in the Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta will be given access to two of the game’s 21 open world environments, and will be able to go it alone or play with up to three friends in online co-op, just like the real game. If you then purchase and play the main game’s campaign before March 31, 2017 (through the same Ubisoft account) then you’ll also be granted access to a limited-time mission to say thanks for participating in the tests.

The Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta will run over the weekend of February 23 – 27, 2017. The beta will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and pre-loads will begin a few days early on Monday, 20 February. Check out the system requirements if you’re thinking about playing on PC.

The game itself launches on March 7, 2017.
