After being teased throughout the week, Ubisoft have this morning held a reveal stream showcasing the next title in the Tom Clancy Ghost Recon series titled, Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Not only does it take the same formula introduced in 2017’s Wildlands and push it further, this entry appears to have an engaging story featuring The Walking Dead star and Punisher himself Jon Bernthal and best of all we don’t have to wait long to play it. Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be launching on PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 4th this year
Check out the official Ubisoft story synopsis for Ghost Recon Breakpoint below:
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a military shooter set in a diverse and hostile open world entirely playable solo or in up to four-player co-op. Players will discover Auroa, a mysterious island where the most technically advanced facilities meet wild and untamed nature. Home to drone creators, tech giant Skell Technology, Auroa has fallen into the wrong hands and all contact has been lost.
The Wolves, a lethal ex–US Military unit of former Ghosts gone rogue, have taken over the island. Led by Nomad’s ex-brother-in-arms, Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, portrayed by Jon Bernthal, they have reprogrammed Skell’s drones into killing machines and are ready to use them, no matter the casualties. Nomad and the Ghosts are sent in on a recon mission, but their helicopters are shot down. Injured, without support, and hunted down, players will live an intense military experience as they fight to survive, take down the Wolves and regain control of Auroa.
Steep slopes, accumulating injuries, and fatigue are new challenges for players to tackle as they test their survival skills in the varied terrains of Auroa. To overcome adversity, players will enjoy total freedom to accomplish their missions and have plenty of tactical options and tools at their disposal, including a set of new military features. They will be able to carry enemies and teammates’ bodies, blend into their environment with prone camo and set up camp with teammates in the bivouac to manage equipment, change classes, and fine-tune their strategies.
They will also be able to choose among thousands of customization combinations to create their perfect Ghost, and keep their character and progression through the game in both the main campaign and Player-versus-player (PvP), available at launch.
As with almost every Ubisoft released game from the past few years, Breakpoint will also be supported long after launch and will release with the Ubisoft standard Gold, Ultimate and Collector’s Editions for players looking to invest more into the game and get bonus perks and content.
Post launch Breakpoint will receive new story arcs, classes and features will be continuously added, and for the first time in a Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon game, a new type of endgame content: Raids.
The editions that will be available at launch include:
