Ubisoft is firing up the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta this coming Friday, February 3, and you can still sign up for a chance to participate!
Almost two months ago we mentioned the ongoing registration for the upcoming Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta. And by “upcoming” I now mean “pretty freaking imminent” since the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta is now slated to start on Friday, February 3 and run through the weekend. I hope you signed up!
As I talked about last time, Ghost Recon Wildlands is yet another iteration of yet another Tom Clancy inspired franchise from Ubisoft. They certainly are flogging his memory for all it is worth. In any case, this particular Ghost Recon is all about a drug war in Bolivia. Here is a blurb from the official announcement regarding the closed beta:
“The cartel-controlled open world of Bolivia will be receiving visitors early next month during the Closed Beta for Ghost Recon Wildlands. From February 3-6, aspiring Ghosts and their co-op partners will infiltrate the province of Itacua where they can work towards dismantling the Santa Blanca cartel in any way they choose. Players will be able to travel solo or team up with up to three friends in co-op as they take advantage of the wide variety of vehicles, weapons, and equipment available to the Ghosts.”
I can only assume that, somewhere along the way, someone high up in Ubisoft was watching Quantum of Solace and got all excited about this mystical country of Bolivia that they had never heard of. After running to Wikipedia and confirming that it was indeed a real place, they decided that if it was important enough for James Bond to worry about then it was damned important enough to make a game about. Sigh…
But that enough exposition for one day. The main point is that the Ghost Recond Wildlands closed beta starts up in a few days. If you haven’t yet signed up for a chance to take part then you can still do so via your local Ghost Recond Wildlands website. Check it out!
