Ghost Recon Wildlands is finally here and players are diving into the story and fun that Ubisoft’s next shooter will offer. If you’re looking to play the game with your pals, though, things can be a bit confusing, as Ghost Recon Wildland’s co-op system works a bit differently than previous Ubisoft titles. In this article we’ll show you how to join your friends and play co-op in Ghost Recon Wildlands.

How to Find the Co-Op Menu

The first thing you need to do is find the cooperative menu in the game. This can be accomplished by loading up your game and creating your first character. Once you’ve created a character, the game will begin, and you’ll have to watch a few cutscenes before you gain control of your Ghost. Don’t worry, though, these cutscenes don’t take that long to pass, and soon you’ll be able to freely roam the environment.

Once you’ve watched the first few cutscenes, you’ll gain access to the main game itself. From here you press Enter at any time to launch into a public game, but if you want to join your friends, you’ll need to locate the Lobby menu. First, open up your Inventory and then look for the Lobby tab on the far left. Navigate to this area and you should be able to spot your friends list down below.

From here all you need to do is highlight a friend’s name and press the corresponding button to join or invite them to your game. The game will automatically load you into their play session, which will allow you to join their current mission with ease.

That’s pretty much everything you need to know about joining friends in Ubisoft’s upcoming shooter, Ghost Recon Wildlands. You have the entire weekend to play the game and test it out, so make sure you know when the beta ends. If you have invites that you haven’t used yet, be sure to send them out to your friends by following our guide on how to invite your friends to the Ghost Recon Wildlands beta.
