Open Beta Details:
Ubisoft has added one more province from the Closed Beta, this time you will have the opportunity to explore the 2 beautiful provinces of Itacua and Montuyoc.
Itacua is the landing province of the full game. It will let you familiarise with Ghost Recon Wildlands’ rich environment. Finish Itacua and gained a XP boost to unlock new skills before going to Montuyoc.
Itacua is a fertile province with a temperate climate and a moderate relief. The capital, the small town of Khochi, is dedicated to the cultivation of cereals, which is also the case of the town of Buena Vida. This haven of peace was the rallying of Bolivian cocaleros and other people persecuted by the cartel. Ignored by the Santa Blanca, which was busy fighting the Unidad, these fugitives got organized. They obtained more effective weapons than hunting shotguns. They dug for ammunition caches, equipment, and supplies. They also built shelters. They trapped ambush zones along the main roads and they trained tirelessly. When the agreement was signed between the Bolivian government and the cartel, they refused to surrender. It was impossible for them that the struggle kept on in this way. The Mexican had to leave Bolivia, dead or alive. The Rebellion launched raids against the Santa Blanca’s facilities but the captured rebels are handed over to La Yuri and El Polito, who are responsible for torturing the captives to extract information on the leaders of the Rebellion.
This province is located in the Altiplano region. Living conditions there are tough. Several roads cross the province and allow for easy movement. The activity of the inhabitants focuses on llama breeding and barley cultures, one of the few grains able to grow at this altitude. Sueño built a vast arsenal, protected by a large base, which contains the most modern small and heavy weapons, guns, tanks, mortars, and anti-aircraft missiles. This arsenal is available to the best sicarios that come to the deserted moors of Montuyoc for training. Santa Blanca’s goal at Montuyoc is to train a small elite army capable of standing up to the best armies in South America.
Montuyoc is located in the highlands and has impressive vistas where you can watch red lakes from above. But it’s also the training center of the Santa Blanca Cartel, so expect some fierce fights there !
