The developers for Ubisoft’s forthcoming tactical shooter, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, officially reveal the start and end dates for the game’s closed beta.

About a couple of months ago, Ubisoft opened signups and registration for Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ forthcoming closed beta, but the publisher and developer had originally failed to mention exactly when the trial would begin. Now, thankfully, Ubisoft has officially revealed the beginning and end dates for Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ forthcoming beta, with the test running through February 3 and February 6.

Ubisoft made the announcement regarding the dates for Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ beta by way of an official trailer dubbed “Open the World of Wildlands.” As seen below in the YouTube video from Ubisoft US, the game’s trailer provides a brief overview of the primary reason behind the Ghosts’ presence in the setting of a near-future Bolivia, as players are tasked with taking down the infamous Santa Blanca cartel.

Of course, as far as the content of Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ beta is concerned, fans shouldn’t expect the game’s full map to be available until the final version of the title releases in a little more than a month. Although the trial won’t feature the title’s entire open world, it will provide those who are chosen by Ubisoft the chance to get an idea of one specific area, with the beta offering up the province of Itacua to play through, which is supposedly a region that is “flourishing and mountainous.”

Should those who have been following Ghost Recon: Wildlands since it was initially announced wish to take part in the beta, there’s no guarantee they will be selected by Ubisoft, but they can register for a shot at trying it out right here. Players who do go on to get chosen by the publisher and developer can invite up to three players on the same platform to the beta, with it being available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Ubisoft also went on to confirm in a press release that fans can try the beta by going it alone in single player, or playing it with a team in co-op.

“As Ghosts, players will work together to take down key members of the Santa Blanca drug cartel as they dismantle the criminal organization. Similar to the full game, all the content in the closed beta will be playable with up to three friends via four player co-op or in single-player.”


With Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ closed beta featuring an unfinished build of the game, it should be considered a given that those taking part will encounter bugs, glitches, and errors galore during the experience. However, should they remain impressed by the fully operable portions of content in the beta, then their playing of the beta could very well translate to solid sales for Ubisoft, as those fans will surely want to take on Ghost Recon: Wildlands in full, if only to see Ubisoft’s largest open world creation to date.

Of course, there are likely fans out there who may have missed out on all of the excitement surrounding Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and who might be on the fence as to whether or not they should sign up for a chance at the beta. Should that be the case, gamers would do well to at least check out the title’s Operation Skydive gameplay trailer to make a more informed decision in regards to Ghost Recon: Wildlands being worth their time.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is set to release on March 7, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
