Ghost Recon Frontline Beta – when it starts & how to join
It's time to get a first glance at what Ubisoft has in store for the classic Tom Clancy franchise
It wasn’t exactly met with shouts of joy at the tail end of last year when Ubisoft announced its Ghost Recon franchise was to get a battle royal game.
Fans are scared of Battle Royale games, mainly because all of a sudden, a game IP they have grown up and loved is almost being dumbed down into a swamp of cosmetic microtransactions and themed Battle Passes.
This is a slightly paranoid way of thinking, Call of Duty has almost pulled off the job of having two game styles in the same universe living in a symbiotic harmony together – so why not Ghost Recon?
I still have great memories of the early Ghost Recon games and some classic moments of gameplay. With a Battle Royale, all of these set-piece scenarios go by the wayside but there are still memorable times to be had without a doubt.
That’s why we are still keeping every crossed for Ghost Recon Frontlines, and after this weekend we could have the start of an idea of how things might pan out.
When is the Ghost Recon Frontline Beta?
The beta is rolling out this weekend and will be playable three hours a day on Friday, Saturday Sunday – January 28th-30th. This is obviously a pretty limited time with the game it is probably to allow Ubisoft to put some of the network code through its paces.
How to get in the Ghost Recon Frontline Beta
This is the important bit, it’s a closed beta so you can’t just waltz in like any Tom Clancy, Dick, or Harry, you need to be invited. If your name’s not down you’re not getting in.
The beta test also seems to just be for EU servers. To get an invite you need to have Ubisoft connect, live within Europe, and be signed up to be a playtester on the Ubisoft scheme. If you tick all those boxes then you may well be getting your invite any minute now in your inbox.
