Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is adding a new PVP mode in the next week. Publisher Ubisoft would first like to open up this new Ghost War game mode to the public, so an open beta is set to run starting on Thursday, September 21. Players were given an indication of what to expect with the release of a new trailer on Wednesday morning.

Ghost War will pit teams of four against one another in a deathmatch setting. Players will pick between 12 classes across Assault, Marksman, and Support categories and do battle across large-scale maps. Though deathmatch is the name of the game, the idea is to exercise teamwork and tactics to surprise and overwhelm the opposition. To add some further twists to the game mode, Ghost War's maps will feature dynamic weather and adaptable terrain, meaning teams will have to adjust to changing environments.

The Ghost War open beta will be available to all players, even those that don't currently own Ghost Recon Wildlands. A separate Ghost War Open Beta client will be made available for download, with players only needing a free Ubisoft account (and Xbox Live/PlayStation Plus account for console owners) to log in. The Ghost Recon Wildlands Ghost War Open Beta will be open to all platforms and run from September 21 at 6AM ET through Monday, September 25.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
