Publisher Ubisoft would first like to open up this new Ghost War game mode to the public, so an open beta is set to run starting on Thursday, September 21.
The Ghost War open beta will be available to all players, even those that don't now own Ghost Recon Wildlands. Players will pick between 12 classes across Assault, Marksman, and Support categories and do battle across large-scale maps.
In Ghost War, two groups of players will take part in a four-versus-four (4v4) team deathmatch experience that builds on the tactical squad play from the main game, where strategy is equally as important as skill.
Though far from ideal, Ghost Recon Wildlands is one of the most effective franchise reboots in recent memory. Ghost War will be released as free update sometime this fall, but prior to that there will be an open beta for Ghost War on all platforms September 21 through September 25.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is adding a new PVP mode in the next week. Meanwhile, five of the eight planned maps for this mode will be present in the beta. Ghost War will also introduce new PvP-oriented mechanics such as sound markers and suppressing fire.
The beta will feature six of the twelve classes, and you can familiarize yourself with the Ghost War PvP classes Sniper, Scout and Pointman through a class-specific trailer.
