It looks like Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is shaping up for a pretty successful launch. While not all beta participants will convert into a sale for the company, the game saw over 6.8 million unique players across all beta phases, including the Open Beta that ended February 27th. Collectively, more than 2 billion minutes were played and more than 60% of players gathered friends to play the open beta in coop mode and discovered the dangerous beauty of the Wildlands ahead of the game’s March 7th launch date for both current 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 thank you gift to those who participated in the technical testing or Betas and purchase the game by March 31st, players will receive access to the Unidad conspiracy reward including 3 exclusive missions set in the Media Luna region, one of the Unidad strongholds.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands takes place in Bolivia in the near future as the state has been taken over by the dangerous Santa Blanca drug cartel. Players are tasked with taking down 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.
