Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta performance analysis reveals plenty of drops below 30fps on PS4 and Xbox One

27 Feb

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta ran a little rough on consoles.

The open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands wrapped up earlier today. No matter what you thought of the game’s actual content and gameplay, performance on consoles has been lacklustre.

The latest video analysis from Digital Foundry takes a look and compares the three console versions, PS4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One. Performance and visuals are looked at, with some surprising results.

Wildlands targets 30fps on consoles, but regularly dips below that target, according to the report. Screen tearing and frame-rate drops have been reported at multiple instances, resulting in a lot of stutter.

The Xbox One version looks to have the worst of it, with drops to 26fps happening regularly. Although the standard PS4 suffers from a lot of the same issues, drops are less frequent here.

As for PS4 Pro, you can expect a locked 30fps frame-rate, which produces a more consistent and smoother experience overall. This even applies to both 1080p and 4K modes, which is nice to see.

As for the game’s resolution, PS4 runs at a native 1080p, with only 900p for Xbox One. The PS4 Pro takes this up a notch to 1440p.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is out March 7 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Take a break from the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta and laugh watching other people play it

25 Feb

If you’re not playing the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta this weekend, or need a bit of a break from it, take three minutes and give this fun video a watch.

It’s from none other than videogamedunkey, and features some crazy gameplay from the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta – which runs through Monday, February 27.

There’s plenty of fail in it as you’d expect, lots of grenade tossing, vehicle crashes, fires, and fun commentary.

It also switches between Ubisoft gameplay trailer clips, and actual beta gameplay clips, which adds an extra level of funny.

Dunkey has some of the best gameplay videos on the tube, in my opinion, and if Ghost Recon doesn’t cut it for you there are plenty more videos to choose from. Ultimate Skyrim is still one of my favorite YouTube videos of all time.

Just something fun for you to enjoy on your Saturday.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands – we’re livestreaming the open beta, come watch us kick some cartel butt

23 Feb

Are you playing the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta this weekend? Are you planning to? Yes or no, stop what you’re doing and watch Shabana shoot bad guys in the game for a bit.

Watch live video from vg247 on www.twitch.tv

Shabana has already created her character, so she’ll be able to jump right into Ghost Recon: Wildlands and start kicking some cartel ass.

We’re not too sure how much we’ll get to see today, but the first mission in the open beta takes place in Itacua, a mountainous province. So, expect to see that part at least.

The second area is Montuyoc, which is set in the snowy Altiplano – and it’s a much more challenging area.

All the content in the open beta will is playable with up to three friends on the same platform via four player co-op, or in single-player. Shabana is going it solo and will just be directing her AI squad.

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta runs through February 27, and you can find out everything you need to know about it through that link.

It’s out on March 7 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

23 Feb

A live-action TV spot for Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be gracing your living room screens soon, but until that time, you can watch it online.

The video you see above is called Ruthless, and it shows how evil the cartel is in Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

Unfortunately, as of press time, this video isn’t up on the US YouTube channel, so we embedded the German version because it isn’t region-locked on our end. Here’s the link to the UK trailer in case it’s region locked for you.

The video was directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator) who was also responsible for the Red Dot trailer starring a cat, which was released earlier this year.

This weekend, the open beta is taking place on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It ends on February 27. If you want to know everything there is to know about it, give this a click. You can also check out the PC specs through here.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta kicks off next weekend, pre-load it on February 20

16 Feb

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta will kick off next weekend on all platforms.

Each player participating in the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta will have access to the exclusive “Unidad Conspiracy” mission if they purchase the game and “play it in full by March 31.”

Players will need to use the same Ubisoft account for both the beta and full game in order to acquire the content.

The Unidad Conspiracy mission, players are tasked with “sparking a war” between the corrupt militia group Unidad and the Santa Blanca cartel.

As previously reported, the open beta will also introduce a not one, but two provinces among the 21 included in the final game.

These are Itacua, a mountainous province where the grip of the cartel is looser and Montuyoc, set in the snowy Altiplano, a much more challenging area. Luckily, the player will have gained XP and skills boosts by suppressing the Itacua bosses in the first province.

They can, of course, jump right into Montuyoc if they wish but it sounds unwise.

As in the full game, all the content in the open beta will be playable with up to three friends on the same platform via four player co-op, or in single player.

Players will be able to make use of a large variety of vehicles, tactical equipment and weapons as well.

The Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta will run February 23-27, and you can start pre-loading the beta on Monday, February 20.

If you are unable to view the trailer above, the UK one is through here.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One March 7.
