It looks like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ influence is spreading quickly. First is was Fortnight and GTA V and now Ghost Recon: Wildlands have added PvP modes that resemble the popular Battle Royale shooter. The difference in Ubisoft’s version is that it will be limited to two teams of 4 players that will be battling it out. I think a game like Ghost Recon: Wildlands is perfect for a PvP mode, but I also think they need to pump up the player count to at least 24 because I fear 8 may make games feel like a bit of a… errr… ghost town. I could be wrong however, and the only way to find out is to play it, which we will all be able to do next week. A “stand-alone open beta” will begin on 21 September and run until 25 September, and will be available to everyone, regardless if you own the base game or not.
There will also be 12 classes to choose from and judging by the below trailer fire fights look to be pretty intense. What do you guys think of Ghost War? Do you think it will topple PUBG off the throne?
