Forget the rumors, it is now official—Ubisoft has posted a website where fans of the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon series can register for the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta, an open-world first person shooter set in Bolivia sometime in the near future ("a few years from now"). The game will be playable as a single-player experience or with up to three others in a four-player co-op.
In Wildlands, it's the players job to coordinate the infiltration and take down of the brutal Santa Blanca cartel, a network of bad guys (and girls) that rely fear, intimidation, and violence to rule the land. The game begins with creating and customizing a character. Customizable traits will include gender, facial features, hairstyle, tattoos, and a whole lot more.
Wildland participants will also have to decide on what clothing to wear and what tactical gear to bring based on the strategy at hand. As far as the look goes, Ubisoft claims there are billions of available combinations. The freedom of choice will also extend to how players approach their missions.
"Players will have a total freedom of choice to accomplish their missions how they want and watch as the world reacts to their actions," Ubisoft said.
There will be missions to destroy every aspect of the cartel's operations, everything from production and smuggling to weakening its influence and security.
Ubisoft didn't say how many people it will be selecting for the closed beta, which you can sign up for here. It also didn't say when the beta will begin, though barring any last minute delays, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is scheduled to release on March 7, 2017.
