Nearly 5 months after release, Ubisoft’s most recent Ghost Recon title still has no player-versus-player component, despite players being promised a competitive multiplayer mode prior to the game’s launch. Ubisoft has recently announced that the mode, titled “Ghost Wars,” will have a public open beta later in the summer.
Other then “later in the summer,” Ubisoft provided no concrete date or time frame for which the mode will be available for beta testing, stating only that the beta would be available on PC as well as consoles. The full mode will reportedly be released in the fall.
Ghost Wars will pit two teams of four against one another in a “deathmatch experience that builds on the tactical squad play from the main game.” The mode will feature “large-scale, open maps,” and players will utilize a Battlefield-esque class system instead of just importing their customizable campaign characters. Ubisoft stated that Ghost Wars will not play identically to Wildlands’ campaign mode according to Ubisoft. The developer named two specifically, a suppression effect, also similar to Battlefield as well as sound markers.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands has received plenty of post-launch support and DLC, including a new campaign difficulty, titled “Tier 1.” The game’s most recent update also made helicopters much easier to pilot due to troves of fan feedback regarding the issue. Wildlands was also the best selling game of the first half of 2017.
