That looks really good. Is it an invite closed beta?

Edit: looks like it a register / some guaranteed key?

Yeah, you have to register but a key is not guaranteed I signed up the day registration went live for Xbox and last week for PC and didn't get in. You get 3 invites for friends if you do get in though, so I've been invited on PC

Signed up earlier on both my Ubisoft accounts. Guess I missed the boat if they have already been sent out.

I missed out on a key too even though I signed up last week. Hey, ho, would have liked to have had a bash but I'm sure it will be in open beta soon.

Love the co-op aspect.

Anyone played it so far?

Yeah, played it with friends last night. It's got some issues, but it's fun. Probably not enough for me to actually buy it, but I'm sure I'll be playing more of the beta tonight.

Found out something really great in my time playing... if you disconnect from your squad and you aren't the one flying the helicopter... you plummet to your death (I didn't have parachutes unlocked yet). That was... interesting! I figured they'd just move me to the flying position, but no, I was sat outside so couldn't even swap seats to pilot! (Sidenote: a friend also found that you can throw a grenade into your own helicopter from the side seats too. That went as expected! )

It disconnected me a few times, Uplay does have a habit of just kicking you offline randomly. Also, the game really didn't like me having Chrome and Edge open while I played. It straight up closed Edge down and made plugins on Chrome unresponsive so I ended up closing it and after that it was OK. Discord voice chat was going between green, orange and red constantly too, but having looked at their subreddit they were having issues around that time so it may not be related.

There's not a massive amount of story, as expected, but there are quite a few side missions and you can roam around fighting UNIDAD, driving tractors, etc. whenever you like. I haven't played around too much with the difficulty settings, but from what I have tried they don't make a huge amount of difference. It's either a cake-walk or you get overwhelmed no matter what you're set to. As long as you have a way to take out choppers you should be good in most situations. The worst time we had was when the UNIDAD choppers would just not go away and we only had Assault rifles to take out the pilots.

The co-op works well, I like the seamless nature of it with the drop in/out on the fly and how it handles the mission system for the sake of co-op / progress. The gun play is tight and bullets have the lethal impact you would expect. It also looks pretty good, especially given how large the map is.

I did, unfortunately experience some disconnects from the uplay/wild lands servers) and beta performance went from good to really bad with no obvious reason why. It also has a lot of what I hate about open world games, that repeat mission structure for side quests, lots of fetch quests for example. There is also the fact that failing any mission seems to have no consequences and can be easily repeated later.

I also don't know if I would buy this on or just after release on the strength of the beta.

i think i played about 8 hours in total, across the 3 evenings, got to level 9 or something? worked out the skills eventually, and wondered how the hell you are supposed to ride the bike that handles the same on the road as it did on the dirt! also did anyone go cross country in any vehicle? it drove over anything almost a little bit silly but of course its beta, I thought the gunplay was excellent and the unidad lot got angry real quick even in recruit mode

i will probably buy it to replace the division on PC.

met some like minded nutters in random groups which made the experience so much more entertaining than solo.

Played it solo on the Friday and thought it was disappointingly dull.
Then, over the weekend, played with the mates I gave keys to and it was awesome fun!

It's definitely not a rambo style game.
You have to recon the target area, using your drones and binos, mark those targets and use stealth and silencers until it all goes bonkers, reinforcements come in, and you're fighting for your life
Great fun co-op!

Definite buy for me!
