After the reboot of the Ghost Recon formula with Ghost Recon Wildlands, Ubisoft has revealed the game’s follow-up, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Breakpoint will focus more on an open world single player or four-player co-op experience rather than the previous squad-based gameplay.
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.
After launch, Ghost Recon Breakpoint will receive additional content including new story arcs, classes, features, and for the first time in series history, raids. A Gold Edition of the game that will contain the base game and the Year 1 pass has been revealed, as well as the Ultimate Edition which also includes the ultimate pack. Lastly is The Wolves Collector Edition, which includes everything in the Ultimate Edition and a figurine of Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, Walker’s dog tag, a waterproof map of Auroa, a steelbook, lithographs, and the soundtrack.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be released on October 4th, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For more information, visit the official website.
