An open beta for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will run from February 23 to 27 on consoles and PC, Ubisoft has announced.

Pre-loading will be available from Monday February 20, and each player entering the beta will get access to an exclusive mission should they buy and play the full game before March 31.

The exclusive mission is called “Unidad Conspiracy”, and has players spark a war between the Unidad (a local corrupt militia), and the Santa Blanca cartel.

The beta features two of the full game's 21 provinces: the starting area of Itacua, and the more challenging snowy area of Montuyoc.

Like the full game, all of the content in the open beta will be playable with up to three others on the same platform via online co-op, or in single player.

Set in the largest action-adventure open world ever created by Ubisoft, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands takes place in Bolivia a few years from now, as the country has been turned by the vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel into a narco-state. Players are tasked with eliminating the cartel by any means necessary.

We hooned around in the closed beta a few weeks ago, and it was pretty fun – especially as vehicles can somehow drive up 80 degree slopes. I hope they don't patch that out.
