Ubisoft have announced that the Beta phase for Ghost Recon Wildlands was the most successful in the company’s history, with more than 6.8 millions players taking part in over 34 millions hours worth of gameplay. Wow.
More than 2 billion minutes were played, and more than 60 percent of players gathered their squad to play the Open Beta in Co-Op, discovering the dangerous beauty of the wildlands ahead of the game’s launch on March 7th, 2017, on current-gen consoles and PC.
The Closed and Open Betas allowed players to start their fight against the Santa Blanca cartel by exploring two of the 21 total provinces in the largest action-adventure open world game ever created by Ubisoft. These two provinces offered very different experiences: Itacua is a flourishing and mountainous area, while Montuyoc, set in the arid and snowy Altiplano, is much more challenging. With each Beta, players were able to provide valuable feedback to the development team to help deliver the best experience at launch.
As a reward for being part of Ubisoft’s biggest Beta test for any game, any partaking players will receive the ‘Unidad Conspiracy’ reward. This reward includes three exclusive missions set in the Media Luna region, one of the Unidad strongholds, and will be available for download post-launch.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands takes place in Bolivia a few years from now, as the country has been turned by the vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel into an in-game narco-state. Players are tasked with eliminating the cartel by any means necessary. The massive and responsive open world encourages a variety of playstyles, allowing players the freedom to choose how they execute any missions, in either four-player co-op, or solo, from beginning to end.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 7th 2017. Find out more on the official website through this link.
