Ghost Recon Wildlands PvP hits open beta this summer

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Ladsmash

The promised PvP multiplayer mode for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands [official site] will arrive in autumn, Ubisoft confirmed today, and be preceded by an open beta test this summer. If rolling around invading a country with the lads isn't enough japery for you, you'll be able to team up to shoot a squad of four rival blokes. With the scale, vehicles, and different playstyles of Wildlands, 4v4 could be a pretty interesting prospect on a big-enough map. Unfortunately, Ubisoft have named the mode Ghost War, which has me hoping for something quite different. Still, at least they didn't name it World War G. Here, watch this:

Or if you'd rather read Ubi's words than watch their faces:

"In Ghost War, two groups of players will team up to take part in a four-versus-four team deathmatch experience that builds on the tactical squad play from the main game. Teams will choose from a roster of varied classes that fill specific roles on the battlefield, as they navigate large-scale, open maps and take down their enemies. Ghost War will also integrate new PvP mechanics, including suppressing fire and sound markers, to create a true military strategic, team-based multiplayer mode."

Before all that, Ubisoft have launched a patched focused on helicopters. All helicopters now have different characteristics (speed, agility, and such), new default helicopter controls are in, take-off physics are more realistic, they should 'splode better when they crash, and more. Check the patch notes for full info. That's live now, launched this morning.
