Tonight, during a live session on Twitch and Youtube (I counted more than 50k simultaneous users on both), Ubisoft announced Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the next Ghost Recon that will be launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 4, 2019. Preordering will give the lucky ones access to the beta. I will be back with the PlayStation Store links, for the moment the game is not available there (only on Ubisoft site).
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a military shooter set in a diverse, hostile, and mysterious open world named Auroa, home of the Silicon Valley giant Skell Technology, that you can play entirely solo or in up to four-player co-op. Injured, without support, and hunted down by ex-Ghosts, you must fight to survive by exploring Auroa on- and off-road, in the air, on land, and at sea.
Also, very important, the Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s PVP will be available at launch (it is included in the standard game), and more information on this matter will be available in August. Also, for the network modules of the game (eg. co-op, PVP) you will need a PlayStation Plus subscription.
Official Announce Trailer
You will discover a mysterious and diverse archipelago, and fight against different factions – from Skellers to Homesteaders to Outcasts – that will impact your mission, to the Wolves, a lethal ex-US military unit gone rogue, ready to use the most effective killing machines to take you down. That means the Wolves used to be like you, and they have the same training and experience as you have.
There are some new and interesting features added to the lifestyle as a ghost. Steep slopes, accumulating injuries, and fatigue are the new challenges for us to tackle. Also, if you’re wounded in battle, you’ll have to crawl to the safety of cover to heal yourself, or if a teammate goes down, you’ll be able to pick them up and carry them to a safe place before treating their injuries.
