If you’re planning to play Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta when it launches tomorrow, you can pre-load on PS4, Xbox One, and PC right now. Ubisoft will give players the opportunity to go hands-on with the new game ahead of its release in March. The good news is that you won’t have to waste any of that hands-on time by downloading the game, which is available to pre-load right now, meaning you can just jump into the open beta when it kicks off tomorrow morning.
According to the Express, the open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands is available to pre-load right now on PC through Uplay, on PlayStation 4 through the PlayStation Store, and on Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store. The beta file size is reported to be between 23 and 24GB on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. With that in mind, it’s likely a good idea to download the file ahead of the beta’s launch tomorrow, if you’re looking to get the most out of the beta. That being said, PC users will have a slightly smaller download to contend with at 19.51GB.
There’s also some good news for those who took part in the closed beta, which took place earlier this month. If you still have the closed beta client installed on your respective hardware, Ubisoft has released an update for the client ahead of the open beta, meaning you won’t have to re-install the game before tomorrow.
As aforementioned, the open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands will kick off tomorrow, Thursday, February 23. According to VG247, the action kicks off at 3 a.m. PST and 6 a.m. EST, meanwhile, European players will be able to join at 11 a.m. GMT and 12 a.m. CET. The beta will remain active through the weekend until Monday, February 27. That being said, Ubisoft is yet to confirm exactly what time the beta will come to a close, however, that’s likely to be confirmed by the publisher over the course of the weekend.
