When Ghost Recon: Breakpoint was announced earlier this year, gamers were excited, yet saddend by the removal of AI squad mates. The previous game, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, built its reputation around being able to tackle missions with your buddies online, or hopping offline and letting your AI squad assist you. It was a really great mechanic that gamers wanted to see updated in the sequel. It was one of the main criticisms of the initial reveal of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.
Fast forward to today, during Ubisoft’s annual press conference at E3, it was revealed that AI teammates would in fact be returning. Fans of the series can be excited to tackle missions yet again with AI companions. Personally, this comes as quite the shock with the release date being unchanged. It was a feature that I wanted to see be added, yet didn’t think was possible given that the game releases on October 4th of this year. It’s nice to see game developers such as Ubisoft give a voice to its consumers. Overall, it appears to be a win-win situation for both gamers and Ubisoft. Essentially, given the feedback that we’ve seen so far, gamers will be more inclined to buy the game, which means Ubisoft will keep delivering great titles.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on October 4th, 2019. Ubisoft will be holding a closed beta starting September 5th, and lasting through September 8th. Gamers seeking guaranteed access to the beta can pre-order and jump head first into the chaotic world of Auroa. Be sure to stay tuned right here at Gaming Trend for all your E3 coverage.
