Ubisoft has announced that the new upcoming Ghost Recon Wildlands PVP mode, Ghost War, will enter open beta this summer.
In the Ghost War PVP mode, “teams will fight to get a foothold in the country after the fall of the Santa Blanca Cartel”. Ubisoft is planning to release the game’s PVP mode through a free update this fall. No actual date for the beta was provided, but it will feature a 4v4 team deathmatch.
In the new Ghost War mode, teams will fight to get a foothold in the country after the fall of the Santa Blanca Cartel. These teams will choose from a roster of specialized classes, including Scout, Sniper, Tank, and more. Each class will have its own strengths, weaknesses, and dedicated perks, so players will have to consider their combat strategy and pick a team composition that supports their playstyle. They will then take to the battlefield in open-environment maps, ranging from mountains and deserts to jungles and forests. As matches play out in all kinds of weather and at all times of day, players will have to marshal their knowledge of the Wildlands to help them claim victory.
Alongside the open beta announcement, Ubisoft released a new video for the upcoming Ghost War mode, which can be watched below:
“Our objective with Ghost War was to build upon the main game’s elements of co-op teamplay and open, tactical gameplay,” said Lead Game Designer Lucian Istrate. To expand the tactical toolset, the team has added a new suppression system that affects your vision while you’re under heavy fire, and implemented new sound markers to help players locate their enemies’ position. Istrate cautions that “all of these elements will make team play, communication, and strategic skills more crucial than ever.”
Ghost Recon Wildlands is available now for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The game was released earlier and has been the best-selling title globally for the first half of 2017.
