It was announced over a year ago and now everyone with a good PC can now play Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online. Ubisoft has now launched the open beta test for the free-to-play PC game version of the long running military shooter series.
The game's official website has also received a relaunch, offering information on how to download and play in the open beta test. Ghost Recon Online is a third person multiplayer shooter with support for up to 16 player-based matches.
Ubisoft has made Ghost Recon Online to be a bit different than the typical "run and gun" shooter that is a staple of so many free-to-play FPS games. Instead, Ghost Recon Online is objective-based and requires actual teamwork to win.
The game allows players access to all of Ghost Recon Online's maps, player classes, game modes and abilities. However, the game does support real money microtransactions so players can purchase ungraded weapons, items and more. Anyone who got picked to participate in the game's closed beta test will get some cool in-game exclusive weapons and items to use for the open beta, including the P-250 pistol.
Ghost Recon Online is also supposed to be released for the Nintendo Wii U at some point but there's no word on when that version will be launched.
