Today, Ubisoft announced another exciting addition to the Ghost Recon franchise! Check out the announcement trailer for Ghost Recon Breakpoint!
According to a press release, Breakpoint is set in a mysterious island called Auroa, which is home to the tech giant Skell Technology. Auroa has been taken over by The Wolves, a lethal ex-US Military unit of former Ghosts gone rogue. 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. 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.
Breakpoint will feature new challenges to the Ghosts. The Ghosts will deal with injuries and fatigue that hamper their ability to complete their mission. 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.
Breakpoint will feature up to 4 player co-op and will also be able to choose among thousands of customization combinations to create their perfect Ghost. Players will keep their character and progression through the game in both the main campaign and Player-versus-player.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will include plenty of post-launch content, with regular updates after launch. New story arcs, classes and features will be continuously added, and for the first time in a Ghost Recon game, a new type of endgame content: raids.
Additionally, Ubisoft announced the Gold, Ultimate and Wolves Collector’s Edition of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint as well as the standalone Ubicollectibles figurine of Nomad:
- The Gold Edition will include the base game and the Year 1 Pass.
- The Ultimate Edition will include the base game, the Year 1 Pass and the Ultimate Pack.
- The Wolves Collector Edition will include the base game, the Year 1 Pass, the Ultimate Pack, a Ubicollectibles® high-end figurine of Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, a Steelbook, exclusive lithographs, Walker’s dog tag, a waterproof map of Auroa as well as the soundtrack.
- The standalone Ubicollectibles figurine of Nomad is available for preorder on the Ubisoft store.
Fans who purchase the Gold, Ultimate, or Collector’s Edition will have access to the game up to three days early. Fans who pre-order Breakpoint will receive access to the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint Beta closer to launch, as well as the Sentinel Corp. pack which includes exclusive gear.
Below is some gameplay footage of Breakpoint, which looks absolutely phenomenal. I can’t wait to see more! For more information about Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, visit ghostrecon.com or Ubisoft’s various social media platforms.
