Ghost Recon: Wildlands gets a 5-hour free trial on Xbox One

If you've been looking for a reason to give Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands a shot on Xbox One, the wait is over. Ubisoft has now launched a free trial for the game on consoles, allowing the skeptical to try the game for free before pulling the trigger on a purchase.

Specifically, the trial will let you play the full game for up to five hours. In that time, it appears you'll be able to check out both the single-player gameplay, as well as online co-op.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands hit Xbox One in March as a massive open-world tactical shooter with an emphasis on co-operative play. Set in Bolivia, the story of Wildlands has you working to take down a drug cartel known as Santa Blanca. In our review of the game, we found Wildlands to be a fun, if uninspired experience.

If you want to take advantage of the trial, you can grab it now from the Ghost Recon: Wildlands store listing on your Xbox One. Just keep in mind that, if this is like other timed demos, you'll want to make sure you fully close out of the game when you put it down to prevent the timer from ticking away while you aren't actually playing.

Once you're done with the trial, the full Ghost Recon: Wildlands experience is also available to buy starting at $59.99.

  • One of the best game for last years. Beat all game and all dlc
  • I found it pretty bland like most people did. Beautiful setting and map, shallow and repetitive gameplay. The DLC was an absolute joke. But, use this trial to see if you like it. More games should have trials like this.
  • I just couldn't get into it. Anytime that I play it, it's because I have to make myself play it. Funny enough, I am feeling like that towards most of Ubisofts recent games. Just like Watchdogs 2 and AC Syndicate. I really hope that the new AC breaks that streak for me.
  • Game is good to start with. After about 15 hours you realise every single mission plays out exactly the same. You can literally complete the game by having the AI do everything for you. It's just a very empty game. The world is massive. But nothing feels alive. Everything in it feels like its purely their for the player. Started out as a 9/10. By the end i forced myself to finish it boringly for the achievements. 4/10 Ubisofts open world games are becoming very stale.
  • It would have been better if you could do something simple like "Sniper go to the highground and overwatch" but instead all three npc trammates huddle together. I agree about the open world games being stale. I enjoyed GRAW and GRAW2 single and multiplayer much better. Really wish UBisoft would announce a new Splinter Cell.
