The open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands PvP mode is coming next week
You can try it out even if you don't own the original game.
Ubisoft has today announced that the open beta for Ghost War, the upcoming player-versus-player mode for its open-world shooter Ghost Recon: Wildlands, will kick off next week.
Available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, Ghost War pits two teams of four against each other in a traditional team deathmatch set in the game's vast open environments. To balance the competition, it's all class-based, with your choice of character classes spanning Assault, Marksman and Support categories.
The open beta kicks off on 21 September and runs until 25 September, and you can sign up for it right now on Ubisoft's website. Best of all, you don't need to own Ghost Recon: Wildlands to take part in the beta – it's a standalone download anyone try out.
Six of the twelve character classes will be available in the beta, along with five of the eight maps. Ghost War will roll out as a free update to the full game some time in spring.
