Ubisoft has officially confirmed that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is getting a beta event soon.
While a schedule has not been shared with the masses, the company has revealed that those interested in trying out the upcoming open-world tactical shooter before launch can do so by signing themselves for the beta here. A clarification on whether every registered user is guaranteed a spot or if participants will be selected at random remains unavailable.
Last month, Ubisoft stated that Ghost Recon: Wildlands will receive an open beta as well. That will presumably follow the closed beta session and close to the official release. More information on the early access is expected to arrive in the coming weeks.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands takes place in Bolivia in the near future. The region has grown increasingly unstable over the years due to the presence of the Santa Blanca drug cartel. Through power and influence, the cartel has expanded its reach to the point that Bolivia has become the world’s largest producer of cocaine.
As such, the United States government finally takes notice when Santa Blanca’s influence threatens to infiltrate the country. In order to cut the cartel down, the United States Army dispatches an elite special operations unit called “the Ghosts” with the task of destroying the drug operation and revealing the connection between Santa Blanca and the local government.
Ubisoft has repeatedly stated that the game’s open-world element plays a major role in allowing players to choose various ways through which to accomplish their goals. The game can be played solo, or with three other players in a four-player cooperative mode.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is scheduled to hit shelves for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 7, 2017.
