'Ghost Recon Wildlands' (ALL) Ghost War PvP Mode Goes Open Beta

by Rainier on Sept. 21, 2017 @ 4:17 p.m. PDT

Set a few years from now, Ghost Recon Wildlands lets you lead a four-player team of Ghosts on a covert mission to eliminate the Santa Blanca drug cartel.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is a military shooter set in a massive, dangerous, and responsive open world that you can play entirely solo or in four-player co-op.

Bolivia, a few years from now: this beautiful South American country has become the largest cocaine producer in the world. The influential and vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel has turned the country into a narco-state, leading to lawlessness, fear, injustice, and violence. The cartel is on track to becoming a major underworld power and global threat.

An all-out war is not the answer. A surgical, stealthy, lethal approach is the only way to stop the disease at its source. The Ghosts, an elite US Special Forces team, are sent behind enemy lines to wreak havoc, destabilize, and eventually break the alliance between the cartel and the corrupted government.

Facing an almighty enemy in a massive and hostile environment, the Ghosts will need to make critical moral choices and engage in tough battles to complete their mission – their grittiest and most dangerous operation to date.

The open beta test for Ghost War, the player versus player (PvP) mode update to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, is available on all platforms September 21–25.

The stand-alone open beta is be available for both Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands owners and new players who do not own the base game. The full mode will release as a free update to all Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands owners in the fall.

In Ghost War, two groups of players will take part in a four-versus-four (4v4) team deathmatch experience that builds on the tactical squad play from the main game, where strategy is equally as important as skill. Teams will choose from a roster of varied classes across three categories – Assault, Marksman and Support – that fill specific roles on the battlefield as they navigate large-scale open maps and take down their enemies. The open beta will feature six of the twelve distinct classes, each with their own varied characteristics, weapons, perks and customization options, and five of the eight unique maps. Ghost War will also integrate new PvP mechanics, including suppressing fire and sound markers, to create a true military-strategic, team-based multiplayer mode.

Key Features:

    • Explore the hundreds of villages, landmarks, and legends populating this country and immerse yourself in Bolivian culture. Cross paths with inhabitants reacting to their own agendas and to the game's day-night cycle and weather system.
    • Explore the wildlands on or off road, in the air, and at sea with over 60 different vehicles, including armored pickups, supercars, dirt bikes, helicopters, and RIB boats just to name a few.

  • Take Down the Santa Blanca Cartel
    • The Santa Blanca cartel and its infamous leader, El Sueño, are the most powerful, treacherous, and imposing foes the Ghosts have ever faced.
    • Your mission is to take the cartel down and put an end to their rule of terror by any means necessary: destroy their production facilities, cut off their trafficking routes, dismantle their nfluence network and bring Santa Blanca's sicarios down to their knees.
    • The world will react differently to each of your choices: unexpected opportunities and threats could arise from any situation.
