The Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta is almost here, and will be coming out over a week before the game releases in early March. Players interested in the game will be able to play the beta from February 23 to February 27, exploring the backwoods of Bolivia as they take down drug cartels.
The game had previously had a closed beta several weeks ago, and the open beta will now allow everyone in, instead of those people that were lucky enough or influential enough to get keys. Hopefully, in the time between the closed beta and the open one, Ubisoft has also made the game better to play.
The Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta will allow players to have the run of the game’s entire map. The game takes place in Bolivia, where powerful drug cartels now effectively control the country.
With peace in the United States threatened by drug violence, the player’s Ghost Recon team is sent in to bring the cartel down, which will include taking out officers in the cartel and disrupting their operations.
However, the open beta isn’t open when it comes to content; when it starts, players will have access to two areas, the province Itacua, a mountainous region, and Montuyoc, a snowy region filled with tundra. Players that take part in the Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta will unlock a special mission called “The Unidad Conspiracy”, where they will start up a three-way fight between the drug cartel, a corrupt faction of the Bolivian military called the Unidad, and a local militia group that’s fighting against the cartel.
In order to unlock this mission, you have to play the fully released game from the same UPlay account that you used when you played the open beta. Ghost Recon Wildlands will be releasing on March 7 for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
