Ghost Recon Online beta now open to the public

Ubisoft announced at their Gamescom press conference that after a lengthy closed beta they have officially released Ghost Recon Online to the mass public with an open beta.

The closed beta launched way back in March, and Ubisoft Shanghai has presumably been subtly tweaking the experience ever since. The full release however is still not quite ready and is slated to ship sometime later this year on PC with a release on Wii U reportedly coming at some point after that.

If you're trying to decide whether it's worth it to give the beta a download, check out some of our previous coverage as we've seen GRO in action several times. Suffice to say it's looking promising, but we have some reservations.

You can sign up for the beta here.
