The Ghost Recon Wildlands Open Beta Is Now Live

February 23, 2017Written by Jason Dunning

Letting you explore the Bolivian provinces of Itacua and Montuyoc, the Ghost Recon Wildlands Open Beta is now live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will end on Monday, February 27 at 3am PT/6am ET.

A 24.4GB download from the PlayStation Store (North America, Europe), the Open Beta includes all of the content from the Closed Beta, as well as the province of Montuyoc. Ubisoft’s Mikel Reparaz explains:

Montuyoc is a mountainous province that includes the popular Bolivian salt flats. Santa Blanca keeps a huge arsenal and trains its best sicarios in this province, so you can expect a stiffer challenge than you faced in Itacua. There’s a new Santa Blanca warlord to chase, and to find him, you’ll need to raid Santa Blanca encampments and strongholds to destroy their weapons, kill their elite instructors, and interrogate cartel officers across five new story missions (in addition to the six already available in Itacua). And if you want to learn more about your target and the Santa Blanca, you’ll be able to find 12 new Kingslayer Files filled with fascinating dirt on your enemies.

Reparaz adds that you’ll also find some new side missions in the beta:

The open beta also adds a fistful of new side missions, including new rebel operations and supply raids, and you can further break from the beaten path to track down new intel drops and earn new weapons, accessories, and skill points for beefing up your Ghost. If you’re truly adventurous, you’ll also be able to tackle the open beta at the hardest difficulty, testing your squad’s mettle against Santa Blanca’s best or seeing how long you can survive solo.

More than half of the closed beta players played in co-op, and Ubisoft has added a host of fixes to improve it in the open beta. Additionally, Ubisoft has improved difficulty balancing for AI and missions.

By participating in the beta and playing Ghost Recon Wildlands before March 31 (on the same Ubisoft account), you’ll receive access to the Unidad Conspiracy reward, which includes three exclusive missions.

The Ghost Recon Wildlands Open Beta requires a PlayStation Plus subscription for co-op play, and anyone who participated in the Closed Beta just needs to download a 20.8GB update to access the Open Beta.

Ghost Recon Wildlands launches on March 7.
