Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands has been a major hit for Ubisoft, with the game having the biggest launch of 2017 so far. Well, that is finally coming to Wildlands later this fall in a free update.
Ghost War lets Wildlands players go toe-to-toe for the first time in 4v4 team deathmatches played out on "large-scale, open maps" based on locations from the main game.
Players won't have to wait too long to get their hands on Ghost War.
Ghost War will be a class-based affair, with players choosing from one of six classes before jumping into any given match. The update is expected to release this fall, but there will be an open beta for eager testers available on all platforms later this summer.
Ubisoft invited some community members to Paris to try out the new mode, and you can see how that turned out over on the official Ghost Recon website. It is unknown what other modes will come with Ghost War. It's unclear what exactly will be included in the open beta, but the primary objective of it will be to balance the game mode ahead of launch. The mode also introduces some new features, such as the ability to detect the origin of gunshots, and a suppression system where you and your teammates can limit an opposing player's vision by constantly shooting at them even though they are behind cover.

Though far from flawless, Ghost Recon Wildlands is one of the most effective franchise reboots in recent memory.
