Ubisoft Officially Announces Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Today, Ubisoft announced the latest Tom Clancy-based game coming to PC and consoles this year with Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Actor Jon Bernthal (The Punisher, The Walking Dead) will take the lead antagonist role as he hunts down the soldiers in the returning Ghosts unit, only this time they're stranded behind enemy lines. The game will be released on October 4th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game will have thousands of customization combinations to create the perfect Ghost character, and be allowed to keep their character and progression through the game in both the main campaign and PvP. The company also says they'll have a "robust post-launch content support plan" which will include a new type of endgame content in Raids. So it appears they'll be keeping this game going for a few years after launch.

The Gold Edition will have a Year 1 Pass, while the Ultimate Edition will come with an Ultimate Pack as well. But the biggest version of all will be the Wolves Collector Edition which will include the base game, the Year 1 Pass, the Ultimate Pack, a Ubicollectibles high-end figurine of the main character Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, a steelbook, exclusive lithographs, Walker's dog tag, a waterproof map of Auroa, and the soundtrack. Enjoy the photos, video, and story preview from Ubisoft 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.
