Ghost Recon Wildlands beta sets new Ubisoft record

Over 6.8m players took part in the open beta for Ghost Recon Wildlands.

That’s a record high for the company, overtaking the 6m people who participated in the For Honor beta earlier this month.

Across the game’s various beta phases, some 6.83m players took part, with over 34m hours played. The average individual playtime was seven hours. Over 60 per cent of participants played in co-op, too, although the game does also support solo play.

The Closed and Open Betas allowed players to start their fight against the Santa Blanca cartel by exploring two of the 21 total provinces in the largest action-adventure open world game ever created by Ubisoft,” the publisher said.

These two provinces offered very different experiences: Itacua is a flourishing and mountainous area, while Montuyoc, set in the arid and snowy Altiplano, is much more challenging. With each Beta, players were able to provide valuable feedback to the development team to help deliver the best experience at launch.

As a thank-you to fans, all players who participated in the technical test, Closed Beta or Open Beta (and will play the game by March 31st using the same Ubisoft account) will receive access to the Unidad Conspiracy reward. This reward includes three exclusive missions set in the Media Luna region, one of the Unidad strongholds, and will be available for download post-launch.”

Ghost Recon Wildlands is out on March 7th.
