'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint' (ALL) Title Update 3.0.3 Lands Next Week, Details - Trailer

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is an entirely new adventure, putting players back in the boots of the Ghosts, an Elite US Special Operations Unit. But this time they are stranded behind enemy lines, facing their toughest enemy to date.

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.

They will also be able to choose among thousands of customization combinations to create their perfect Ghost, and keep their character and progression through the game in both the main campaign and Player-versus-player (PvP), available at launch.


Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will release Title Update 3.0.3 on November 9 for PS4, Xbox One consoles and PC, as well as for Ubisoft+, the Ubisoft subscription service and Stadia.

The update is free for all players, bringing new additions to the Ghost Experience mode introduced back in March 2020, as well as additional raid content and stealth gameplay improvements.

The Ghost Experience update will let players further customize their experience with revamped stealth and AI parameters. Players will now be able to deal more damage in stealth mode and make use of the improved human AI to counterattack. Additionally, the update will feature improved drone behavior, cooking grenade as well as a new diversion tool: players can now throw a bullet casing to create distraction among enemies. Last, players will also be able to activate at will either the Terminator presence or the Rebel faction roaming in the world.

Title Update 3.0.3 will also feature a raid update allowing players to explore Golem Island solo, boss-free and complete dedicated objectives through Easy, Heroic and Solo Exploration modes:

  • Solo Exploration will involve no gear level requirement, feature regular enemy levels and have no raid boss. This mode will have 12 new milestone missions and focus on exploration, with improved navigation between sectors due to more cars and boats being available.
  • Threat Level: Critical (Hardcore mode) will increase enemy levels, give players four hearts that replenish and allow for respawning, and will feature three game modifiers each week. The mode will also include modified boss patterns, so there will be more enemy waves and shorter ability cooldowns. Additionally, four new weapons and five titles will be added to the loot table as exclusive rewards.
  • Threat Level: Low (Easy mode) will lower enemy levels, feature shorter respawn times for players and make enemies visible on the map. Additionally, boss patterns will be modified to have fewer enemies in waves, longer ability cooldowns and no second-phase boss fights. Easy mode will feature regular loot and no unique chests.

Additionally, an update will be made to class progression, adding progression rewards to Assault, Sharpshooter, Panther, Medic, Engineer, Echelon and Pathfinder classes. Class progression will also be extended through rank 20 and feature over 200 new challenges.

Title Update 3.0.3 comes after a full year of post-launch support for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint and the recent release of Episode 3: Red Patriot. It is the first of two major free updates announced for the coming months, with a new crossover in-game event planned for January 2021.

At the launch of Google Stadia, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will support the Stream Connect feature, which allows players to display the game of up to three Co-Op teammates on their screen.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will include a robust post-launch content support plan, 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.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, as well the Google Stadia gaming platform.
