Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ open beta is due to kick off next week, February 23, Ubisoft has announced. Due to run concurrently on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, the trial period comes just weeks after the conclusion of Wildlands‘ closed beta, which tasked players with infiltrating the open-world shooter’s Itacua region in order to dismantle the Santa Blanca cartel by whatever means necessary.
Ubisoft has been championing the open-ended nature of Wildlands since its announcement in 2015, having stated previously that a wide range of “vehicles, weapons, and equipment” are available for operatives in order to get the job done however they see fit.
If you weren’t one of the lucky few to be picked for the closed beta, you’ll be happy to hear that next week’s version includes all of the same content, as well as an additional province – Montuyoc – which is located in the “Bolivian Altiplano region.” As an added incentive, all beta participants will receive access to bonus content upon the game’s full release on March 7, which includes three exclusive missions.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is the second of many triple-A Ubisoft titles scheduled for release throughout 2017. Besides the launch of medieval arena fighter For Honor earlier this week, the developer’s second collaboration with South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker – South Park: The Fractured But Whole – is pegged to hit retail before the year’s end. Whether or not it will meet that goal remains to be seen, however, what with the recent confirmation of a further delay.
