Ghost War, Wildlands' incoming PvP mode will have an open beta late this summer. Full mode will be available as a free update in the fall. Ghost Recon: Wildlands has been named Ubisoft's best selling game of the year in a recent financial call.
Ubisoft just announced that there is an upcoming beta test for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands’ player-versus-player mode, Ghost War. The open beta will be available on all platforms "later in the summer". Ghost War - full mode will be available as a free update to all Ghost Recon Wildlands owners sometime this fall.
Ghost War will work like this: two groups of four players will team up to go all out in a 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" says the press release.
Recently, Ubisoft had their financial call and it revealed that Ghost Recon: Wildlands is their best selling game of the year when taking into account both digital and physical sales between January and June 2017 for consoles and PC. The company also also raked in around £178 million last quarter, which beat their own targets by tens of millions.
Yves Guillemot, Co, Founder and Chief Executive Officer had this to say "Thanks to our increasing ability to engage players over the long term, combined with our unique creative strengths,we are even more confident of achieving our targets for 2017-18 and 2018-19. We expect both of these factors to continue being key drivers of value creation in the coming years."
