In the vast open world of Ghost Recon Wildlands, danger lurks around every bend. Whether it’s the vicious Santa Blanca cartel defending their criminal empire, the corrupt Unidad police force cracking down on any resistance, or your hotshot co-op buddy flying your squad’s helicopter a little too close to the treetops, the life of a Ghost is always exciting. And this weekend, Xbox Live Gold members can live that excitement for free!
From Thursday, October 12 at 12:00 a.m. PT through Sunday, October 15 at 11:59 p.m. PT, you can download the full game for free and explore all that Ghost Recon Wildlands can offer. That means a gorgeous open world full of diverse ecosystems and thrilling missions for you to take on in single-player, or with a squad of up to four co-op players. That means a wide array of weapons, abilities, and vehicles that let you tackle each situation using whatever strategy you choose. And as of this week, that means the new Ghost War 4v4 team deathmatch mode.
Released for free to all Ghost Recon Wildlands players, Ghost War is a brand-new mode that brings a whole new challenge to the table. Players choose from among 12 distinct classes to create teams loaded for bear with powerful weapons, perks, and abilities. Using squad tactics and stealthy scouting techniques, they fight it out against a team of enemy players in intense multiplayer firefights over Xbox Live. Ghost War launches on Tuesday, October 10, and the development team will expand it in the months to come with new maps, new classes, and new modes.
If you want to stay in the fight after the free weekend ends, you can buy Ghost Recon Wildlands for 50% off from October 12-15, and as a bonus, the sale will be extended for Xbox Live Gold members until October 23. And any progress you make during the free weekend will be carried over should you buy the full game at a later date, so you won’t lose a step in your fight to take down Santa Blanca.
So, whether you’re taking on missions solo, teaming up with friends to eliminate threats together, or facing off against other players in tactical deathmatches, playing Ghost Recon Wildlands is an excellent way to spend this weekend.
