Ghost Recon: Wildlands now has a 5 hour free demo available for you to try on the Xbox One. The new demo lets you try both single player and Co-Op so if you have a few friends handy you can team up and shoot some bad guys in the face!
In case you missed our review, Editor-in-Chief Dave Moran scored it an 8 out of 10, quoting “Ultimately, WIldlands is held back by your own creativity in completing objectives. There are few scripted set pieces that lead you by the hand. It is however a wonderful playground of death that begs for co-op play and if you have a steady co-op partner or a team of four, then this is a must buy game for fans of co-op gameplay.”
Ubisoft have released their TV Spot for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, entitled “Ruthless”. This action-packed piece has been directed by the legendary John McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator) depicts the Ghosts’ first mission in Bolivia, where they will try to take down the Santa Blanca cartel.
This TV Spot is not the first work by John McTiernan for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, having also directed the unique Red Dot live trailer, released earlier this year and which revealed an interesting relationship between a red dot, a cat and… Cartel members. While Red Dot shows the merciless efficiency of the Ghosts, Ruthless shows the cruelty of the Cartel.
You can watch Red Dot below:
Players will be able to take on the Cartel themselves from today as the Open Beta for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is now live until February 27th. This Open Beta introduces players to two provinces from amongst the 21 available in the game: Itacua, a flourishing and mountainous region, where the grip of the cartel is looser, allows players to perfect their sniping skill and become acquainted to the Wildlands. Montuyoc, set in the snowy Altiplano and the second province available in this Open Beta, is much more challenging as it hosts Santa Blanca elite training centres.
Ubisoft have announced that there will be an open Beta for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, running from February 23rd to 27th. If you missed out on the closed Beta the other week, this is the ideal opportunity to jump in and see how it plays.
As a reward for playing the Beta, you will unlock access to an exclusive mission for the full game – the Unidad Conspiracy mission, in which players will spark a war between the Unidad, a local corrupt militia group, and the Santa Blanca cartel. If you purchase the full game, this will be available to you as long as you play on the same Ubisoft account.
The Open Beta will introduce players to two provinces among the 21 of the final game: Itacua, a flourishing and mountainous province where the grip of the cartel is looser, ideal to perfect your sniping skills and get introduced to the Wildlands. Montuyoc, set in the snowy Altiplano, and the second province available in this Open Beta, is much more challenging – players who have suppressed the Itacua bosses will gain XP and skills boosts allowing them to face this dangerous area, home to Santa Blanca elite training centers. Players can of course confront Montuyoc right away… at their own risk.
As in the full game, all the content in the Open Beta will be playable with up to three friends on the same platform via four player co-op, or in single player. So get your squad together and prepare to tame the Wildlands.
With Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands set for a March the 6th release date, Ubisoft have announced that they are working on a real life companion feature documentary. The feature length documentary shows an insight into the key players in the war on drugs for the past 30 years. Entitled “Wildlands” the documentary follows narrator Rusty Young on a fascinating journey exploring the cocaine trade on both sides of the law in South America.
Senior Vice president of Ubisoft had this to say about Wildlands:
“Wildlands is a thought-provoking depiction of this complex issue. This subject matter has accumulated huge global interest and we believe that, as a companion to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, we take gamers and viewers of Wildlands on a journey of discovery of an issue that continues to grip and fascinate global audiences.”
I have to say this is a nice touch from Ubisoft, it definitely adds more depth to what looks like and amazing game. Go HERE for more information on the documentary.
