LONDON, UK — SEPTEMBER 13 TH, 2017 — Today, Ubisoft ® announced that an upcoming open beta test for Ghost War, the new player-versus-player (PvP) mode update to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon ® Wildlands, will be available on all platforms between 21 st September and 25 th September, 2017. The stand-alone open beta will be available for preload starting September 19 th for both Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands owners and new players who do not own the base game. The full mode will release as a free update to all Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands owners this autumn.
In Ghost War, two groups of players will take part in a four-versus-four (4v4) team deathmatch experience that builds on the tactical squad play from the main game, where strategy is equally as important as skill. Teams will choose from a roster of varied classes across three categories – Assault, Marksman and Support – that fill specific roles on the battlefield as they navigate large-scale open maps and take down their enemies.
The open beta will feature six of the twelve distinct classes, each with their own varied characteristics, weapons, perks and customisation options, and five of the eight unique maps. Ghost War will also integrate new PvP mechanics, including suppressing fire and sound markers, to create a true military-strategic, team-based multiplayer mode.
Those looking for more information about Ghost War and the open beta can tune into the Ghost War Premiere on twitch.tv/ubisoft on September 19 th at 17:00pm UK time to see new PvP content for the first time, exclusively on Twitch. To celebrate this event, a pre-show with four hours of content featuring special guests will begin at 13:00pm UK time. A re-broadcast of the pre-show and main event will start at approximately 19:30 UK time. More details about the livestream can be found at http://ghostrecon.com/LivestreamAnnouncement.
Developed by Ubisoft Paris,* Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a military shooter entirely playable in up to four-player co-op or single-player from beginning to end. Players have total freedom to accomplish their missions how they want and watch as the world reacts to their actions. Players can choose to move quietly in the night, go in hot at dawn or work together to execute a sync shot that takes out enemies in one fell swoop. Each choice has a consequence, and players must improvise or adapt their plans to ensure the completion and success of each mission.

About Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
Launched in 2001 with critical acclaim from fans of the Tom Clancy’s world, the Ghost Recon franchise has since convinced 25 million players thanks to breakthrough releases and has become the best-selling Tom Clancy’s brand on the last generation of consoles and PC. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands brings the franchise to the next level with an episode designed from the ground up for a new generation, featuring a massive and visually stunning open world, playable for the first time online in four-player co-op.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a work of fiction. Like similar Tom Clancy’s games from Ubisoft, the game takes place in a modern universe inspired by reality, but the characters, locations and stories are created solely for entertainment purposes. One of the reasons Bolivia was chosen as the background of this game was due to its magnificent landscapes and rich culture. While the game’s premise imagines a different reality than the one that exists in Bolivia today, we do hope that the in-game world comes close to representing the country’s beautiful topography, and that players enjoy exploring the diverse and open landscapes it moved us to create. Any resemblance to actual events or any real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
