Some of them can be easily solved by simple tweaks, while others are beyond the scope of regular users. Hopefully, the developers will keep releasing patches throughout the beta.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Beta PC DirectX 11 error
Several owners of high-end cards have repored not being able to run the game. They all received a message saying Your graphics card does not support DirectX 11 features, even though it does. Updating the drivers doesn’t help, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to force the game to use an older version of DX. There’s no confirmed solution for now, but the developers are investigating the problem.
