Everyone will be able to check out the new player-versus-player mode in Ghost Recon Wildlands before it releases this fall. Ubisoft announced today that they’ll be holding an open beta test for the mode, called Ghost War, this summer. It’ll be on all platforms, and the mode will be in a free update for the third-person shooter later this fall.
Here’s how Ubisoft describes the mode:
In Ghost War, two groups of players will team up to take part in a four-versus-four team deathmatch experience that builds on the tactical squad play from the main game. Teams will choose from a roster of varied classes that fill specific roles on the battlefield as they navigate large-scale, open maps and take down their enemies. Ghost War will also integrate new PvP mechanics, including suppressing fire and sound markers, to create a true military strategic, team-based multiplayer mode.

In our review of Ghost Recon Wildlands writer Blake Grundman had this to say about Ubisoft’s tentpole release:
Though far from perfect, Ghost Recon Wildlands is one of the most effective franchise reboots in recent memory. It manages to build upon the key squad-based mechanics that set the series apart, while not feeling the need to pander to the established fan base. The result is a fantastically realized open world that legitimately feels like it could be a real geographic location. Now that I’ve had a taste of the new Ghost Recon, I couldn’t imagine going back.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
