Courtesy of Gamescom, Ubisoft has announced that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online has finally entered open beta. That means you can jump in and give it a shot yourself! The game is completely free-to-play, and features a pretty solid engine behind it. Still confirmed as coming for the Wii U, the title will be supported (like all free-to-play titles) through microtransactions. From the official site, here is the official description:
Experience the next generation of PC multiplayer shooters with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online. Step into the boots of an elite Ghost and deploy cutting-edge weapons and technology as you link up with your Ghost squad to dominate your enemies on tomorrow’s battlefield. Experience all this and more for Free.
Leading the attack, going stealthy or providing fire support to the squad, the choice is in your hands – pick from 3 different Classes of Ghosts to meet the tactical challenges of each battle. Develop, evolve and customize your persistent Ghost character as you advance through Ghost Recon Online.
With the most advanced technology at their fingertips, each Ghost is able to deploy hi-tech Abilities to enhance not only their own fighting capabilities, but more importantly, to complement and boost the battlefield effectiveness of their squad.
As a Free-to-Play game, you will be able to download and experience Ghost Recon Online’s core content without paying a single cent. Players can enhance their game experience by using either in-game points or real currency to purchase and equip their Ghosts with weapons, gear and other boosts.
As I said, the game is free to play. While you download the beta client, let’s check out the announcement trailer below! See ya online….
