Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be free to play on consoles and PC from October 12 through October 15. During that time, players will have a full access to the base game content. In addition, they will have the chance to try the Ghost War. The latter is a new free PvP update which will be launched tomorrow (October 10). Players are enabled to pre-load the game starting today (October 9).
Apart from the free-to-play trial, Ubisoft has prepared yet another incentive. Game fans will get 50% off the retail price of all editions. New players who decide to purchase the game after the free trial will have their progress carried over.
To be able to take advantage of the free weekend, PC players have to visit the official Ghost Recon site, create an account and pre-load the game. Xbox One players need an Xbox Live Gold subscription, while PS4 users need a PS+ subscription.
The Ghost War is a 4VS4 mode where strategy is as important as skill. Players need to use one of the 12 classes and defeat enemies across eight unique maps. Each class has its own bells and whistles – customization options, weapons, characteristics, etc.
In related news, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands development team is also planning to bring new classes, maps, and modes in the next few months thus enhancing players’ PvP experience. According to released information, all future content will be free.
New classes will be unlocked with Prestige Credits. Tom Clansy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Season Pass owners will get all new classes for free with a one-week early access.
