The open beta testing of “Ghost Recon: Wildlands” has finally ended today. The beta test is now closed for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms. Even though the test has been closed, players who have been using the Xbox One platform can get something for free.

Xbox One owners who participated in the “Ghost Recon: Wildlands” open beta test can now pick up a free Avatar costume. The costume is themed to be in line with the upcoming squad-based open-world shooter.

Male and female versions of the game’s Nomad outfit are available right now in the Xbox Store. The free outfit is sure to make one’s Avatar look like exactly like one of the characters from the game. Their avatars will be wearing the signature outfit, which comprises of sunglasses, gloves, a hat and a tactical vest. This is according to Game Spot. For those who are lucky enough to get free Avatars from the game, they can do so by visiting the game’s official website.

In line with the beta test itself, mixed reviews were made by those who were fortunate enough to play it. But overall, the chaos that the co-op game gave to their players is like a double-edged sword for them.

The plus side of it is that players can get to experience how to tactically plan their approach. But since they have artificial intelligence (AI) as teammates, coordination is not as good as compared with real players in their team. Some even stated that having to go all stealth mode felt like carrying three additional body weight (the AIs) along with them since they either become too cowardly to fight or become an all out guns-a-blazing team member.

Most of the players agreed that they probably enjoyed the open beta because of these problems. Its haphazard approach meant it was never dull. The game litters the map with loads of icons and numerous things to do. There are also the missions which are triggered as players pass them and multiple-coloured blobs indicating bad guys and good guys, a great way to get one's attention.

The “Ghost Recon: Wildlands” beta ended Tuesday morning. Gamers will only have to wait for just a couple more days before the game will be officially released. It will launch on March 7 for all platforms. "Wildlands" contains the largest open world tournaments that Ubisoft has ever made for any of its games.
