Ghost Recon Wildlands – Open Beta runs February 23rd to 27th, features new province

If you missed out on the Closed Beta beta or just want to play MORE, the Ghost Recon Wildland beta starts next Thursday, February 23rd.

While the Closed Beta only contained Itacua, the easiest province from the full game’s 21 areas, the Open Beta adds another to the mix. This time around players will be able to march / drive / fly straight into the snowy province of Montuyoc, set on the Bolivian Plateau (or Altiplano). This area is home to the Santa Blanca cartel’s elite training centres, and provides more of a challenge.

As in the final game, the Open Beta is playable with up to three friends on the same platform via four player co-op, or in single player.

Players who participate in the Open Beta will also get unlock an exclusive mission in the full game, as long as they play it before the March 31st using the same Ubisoft account. This mission, “Unidad Conspiracy”, sees the Ghosts spark a war between corrupt local militia Unidad and the Santa Blanca cartel.

Ghost Recon Wildlands comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 7th.

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.
