Tactical shooters and strategic combat are heavy hitters in the eSports realm. The new open world Ubisoft title that released earlier this year, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, is a haven for such gameplay experiences. So, with the announcement of the open beta for the upcoming PvP mode – Ghost War – for the futuristic shooter, we’ll take a look at some of the finer details that are headed our way.
The competition of video games arises from many different genres. Tactical shooters are among the top, and earlier this year Ubisoft Paris released a futuristic tactical shooter that gave online players a breath of fresh air with its unique take on military action.
So, following the events after the main campaign, Special Operations units have arrived and plan to take back the country of Bolivia. Making good use of skills, tech, various war tactics and strategy, as well as proper communications will lift your squad over opposing forces and give the ultimate tactical gameplay competition.
Taking two groups of players and forming teams of four to wage war against each other in tactical gunplay, Ghost War looks to up the ante for modern shooters. In traditional team deathmatch fashion, both squads use advanced military tech and skills to strategically take out the rival team. With a varied roster list of classes to choose from, each player has their own role to fill, providing a unique, one-of-a-kind battleground.
More player versus player action will be added to the successful Tom Clancy release, giving shooter fans a futuristic taste of strategy and tactics. Adding to the tactical mayhem, suppressing fire and sound markers are introduced, giving teammates a fitting team-based military experience not found in other eSport titles.
The open beta for Ghost War will become available later this summer, coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC. The free full update including the PvP mode, Ghost War, will be released this fall to all owners of Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
