Get ready to return to Bolivia, because Ghost War – the new PvP mode for Ghost Recon Wildlands – is coming in a free update this fall, with a 4v4 team deathmatch open beta on all platforms later this summer. In the new Ghost War mode, one team plays as Ghosts and the other plays as a squad of spec ops soldiers fighting to get a foothold in the country after the fall of the Santa Blanca Cartel. These teams will choose from a roster of specialized classes, including Scout, Sniper, Tank, and more. Each class will have its own strengths, weaknesses, and dedicated perks, so players will have to consider their combat strategy and pick a team composition that supports their playstyle. They will then take to the battlefield in open-environment maps, ranging from mountains and deserts to jungles and forests. As matches play out in all kinds of weather and at all times of day, players will have to marshal their knowledge of the Wildlands to help them claim victory.

”Our objective with Ghost War was to build upon the main game's elements of co-op teamplay and open, tactical gameplay," said Lead Game Designer Lucian Istrate. To expand the tactical toolset, the team has added a new suppression system that affects your vision while you're under heavy fire, and implemented new sound markers to help players locate their enemies' position. Istrate cautions that ”all of these elements will make team play, communication, and strategic skills more crucial than ever."

Ghost War was designed from the ground up with the community in mind. Similar to the pre-launch period of Ghost Recon Wildlands, the team in Ubisoft Paris brought a select group of community members to the studio to gather critical feedback during the development process. Visit the Ghost Recon news page to see some early impressions from our community members who got their hands on the new PvP mode.

Players looking to get a slice of the action before launch can join an open beta that will be available on all platforms later this summer. For the latest beta info, visit ghostrecon.com.

Just when I think I'm out...

Also that GOD at the helicopter update. It was fun to fly but shitty handling/shooting made it frustrating to use as a weapon.

I wonder if Ubi will ever put in a PUBG-style mode in Wildlands? Could be a good fit.

In a Ubisoft earnings call they specifically talked about considering it for games in their future DLCs so I would not be surprised at all, especially considering how much Ghost Recon WIldlands has sold so far.

Not sure what Ubisoft are trying to do with pvp in this. 4v4 seems way to small for the overall scope and space in the game. A 8v8 mode would be much better IMO. I was desperately hoping to get some type of feel from Socom days with the pvp but i dont think 4v4 will suffice.

Even though I like Rainbow Dix Siege alot it still baffles me that its 5v5 instead of 6v6 hence the name Rainbow Six. Not sure I understand what Ubi is trying to do with their pvp stuff these days.

Is this game any good for someone like me who doesn't have friends to play it with?

I'm mostly playing it one player and it's fun. The missions have just enough variety to not get too repetitive.

But then I like the whole sneaking in a dispatching whole enemy encampments silently with my team.

has the title 6 update gone live on PC already?

I only started playing a couple days ago, and I don't think the choppers control that well at all? I have no real sense of where I'm aiming whilst piloting one?

I don't want to derail this thread to much but i didn't want to start a new one. I have recently been looking at this game because i want a competitive tactical shooter for my PS4. I am playing americas army but being from the UK the emphasis on the american army and the propaganda videos are beginning to get on my nerves.
