testing of Ghost Recon Wildlands
is now underway. This will run through
Monday, offering the chance to get your virtual boots on the ground in the
latest installment in the Tom Clancy shooter series. Here's word from
last week's announcement
of the plan:
Running through February 27,
this Open Beta features all of the same content found in the Closed Beta and
more, including an additional province to explore called Montuyoc. Set in the
Bolivian Altiplano region, this province contains heavily defended strongholds
where the Santa Blanca trains some of its toughest soldiers.
Learning how to use all of the tools in your arsenal is key for taking on the
Santa Blanca. First and foremost, use your fellow Ghosts. Whether you’re playing
in co-op with up to three other players or going solo with cooperative AI, the
other Ghosts can provide valuable distractions and cover fire when things start
to heat up. And don’t forget transportation – jeeps, helicopters, APCs, and a
large assortment of other vehicles can all become part of your strategy when
infiltrating a Santa Blanca base (or escaping from it). Your environment can
also be used to your advantage in Ghost Recon Wildlands. Itacua is a lush region
with plenty of vegetation to hide you from enemy view when scouting for enemies.
Meanwhile, the cover of night or a strong storm may be what keeps you from being
spotted around Montuyoc’s lakes and sparse terrain.
As a special bonus, if you participated in the closed beta or the open beta –
and start up the retail version of Ghost Recon Wildlands before March 31 on the
same Ubisoft account – you’ll also gain access to the special “Unidad
Conspiracy” reward, which includes three exclusive missions that features a
brewing conflict between the local Unidad military and the Santa Blanca.
