    Or alternatively, 'Clear and Present Danger' the game. Am I right?

    Is anybody interested in this? I know its a Ubisoft open worlder. And yes, it is a po-faced contemporary military shooter, which are so prevalent now its become a cliché. And yes, judging from videos it isn't as 'tactical' as fans of the Ghost Recon brand would like.

    But it is four player co-op. And in a world where Mercenaries 2 was a glitched mess that saw its developer canned by EA. This might be a fun, albeit less bombastic, alternative?

    I’d love it to be Mercenaries 3, but I’m getting more of a Clearing Out Far Cry Outposts: The Game vibe from it.

    Been looking forward to this personally, as a first co-op game on my PC that I'll actually play online. Absolutely loved Future Soldier so willing to give this a go.

    I don't mind it not being as tactical as GR. I am interested IF it nails the thing some GRs did so well, which was the big outdoors, the sense of space and isolation.

    And if it's not clear camps run up towers unlock map Ubi shite as SH says.

    Co op is very tempting.

    @StarchildHypocrethes Mercenaries 2 was probably the biggest disappointment of the last generation for me. It's certainly one that I haven't forgotten about. The first game had been so good on PS2. I remember playing the OPSM2 demo over and over again.

    I can see what you're saying about the Far Cry influence though.

    Ironic that the movie was based on a Tom Clancy book in the Jack Ryan series and Ghost Recon is part of the 'Tom Clancy' brand. Wildlands sounds like something that would appeal to the kids though I guess? Do kids these days even know who Harrison Ford is?

    I'm looking forward to seeing which bits of which of their games they've clumsily stitched together and what amazing new server issues they launch this game with.
    Oh, and finding out that "Bolivia" is actually the maps from Far Cry 1,2,3 and 4 Photoshopped together. Plus, when that gruff guy goes "hooaaa motherfucker".

    @Jim_Dix
    Jack Ryan has been played by Ben Affleck and Chris Pine more recently.

    @Derblington I know. I can't recall seeing the Affleck vehicle. Was that the 'Sum of all Fears' or am I imagining that title?

    I know for a fact I saw the trailer for the Chris Pine one. And it looked shit. 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit'? Shadow agent? Some shit like that? I haven't seen it. Was it even based on a book? Ryan the character was a CIA analyst wasn't he? He isn't trained for field work and gets roped into it in Hunt for Red October. Pretty sure the Pine version is Ryan in name only.

    Yeah, I think Affleck was the one where there was a bomb at that American football game, and he just stops nuclear war. Sum of All Fears arrr.

    The Chris Pine one felt far more... indistinct.

    I liked Ford in the role cos his silly confused face works for it.

    I'm very interested in this. Guardian's got an interesting right up.

    https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/jan/24/ghost-recon-wildlands-hands-on-with-the-future-of-military-shooters

    I'm not so worried about it not being enough like classic Ghost Recon - especially as I hope to play with real people, and I never really gelled with the "tactical" part. I love real people tactical, not "choose some options from an order wheel and let friendly AI execute" tactical. One of the reasons Rainbow Six Siege is so great.

    @erniewhatbert If you're getting it, then I will. I've signed up for the beta so will see if I get in.

    My brother likes this sort of thing too, so I'm hoping it's decent enough to persuade him to play.

    Would get it on Xbox, yeah?

    If triarii and crispyduckman get it I am in...

    I can't not see Far Cry 3 with a drone. The co-op might be cool but the game play looks like same old shit ever so slightly tweaked.

    Watched a couple more videos of this over the weekend. Some of the early stuff from E3 (2016?) looks... rough. To say the least.

    Saw one in particular where the player launched a motorbike off a cliff, tagged a ledge on the way down causing him to come off, plummeted about a hundred feet into an enemy encampment, and then landed in a roll and was straight on their feet shooting bad guys. :confused:

    I mean, yeah, I get it is more of an arcade game, but even in GTA that kind of stunt would result in a death.

    Are they still taking applications for the beta? I'd be interested in trying before buying. Especially given Ubisofts recent form. I'll wait for reviews and, crucially, some performance analysis as I'm on a standard PS4.

    You seen the Movie Lone Survivor right(based on true events apparently)? It totaly can happen :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure about this game yet it might as well be Farcry all but name :p But how dense is the map or is it very big and nothing to do inbetween the camps like Just Cause 3?

    If you're extremely quick you might just grab a Beta key from this french giveaway:

    http://www.jeuxvideo.com/news/601542/ghost-recon-wildlands-10-000-cles-a-gagner-pour-la-beta-de-ce-week-end.htm

    I grabbed one, but it is being hammered and slow as a mother.

    For the captcha- moins is "minus", ajoute is "added".

    Wouldn't worry, I got a code, redeemed it at Ubisoft and.... nothing. The Wildlands page says I've been selected but PSN won't accept the code. In short, the beta is about as buggy as the game will inevitably be,

    Have three invites for the beta, but you'd need to become an Ubisoft account friend, if you can be assed.

    On what format?

    I registered for Xbox One on 6th of December. I'm still waiting for further contact (only received an email saying I was going on the waitlist).

    I got a beta key finally, circa 20 hours after being accepted. Even UbiSoft's email is shit.

    Just checked- invites only work on the same platform as the Beta participant. I'm on PS4 with three to offer then- if any other totally hunky and clearly superior Sony gamers want an invite then pop your uPlay name here. Forum regulars only.
