'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint' (ALL) Operation Amber Sky Live Event Next Week, Free Weekend, Sale - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 14, 2021 @ 5:56 p.m. PST

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 Operation Amber Sky, a new live event that will let players fight alongside Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege teammates in brand-new story missions, will kick off on January 21 for all Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint players.

The Operation Amber Sky live event will release as part of Title Update 3.10, launching free for all players on January 19. The update will introduce:

  • 9 Free Missions: The Ghosts are told that Sentinel is producing a toxic gas, Amber Ruin, in Auroa and selling it all over the world. Joining forces with an infiltrated Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege team, players will have to stop the production and find an antidote. For this, they will have to complete a wide array of objectives and venture into the deadly gas areas, where they will need to wear a gas mask and renew their filters regularly to survive. Upon completing the event missions, players will unlock eleven unique rewards, including brand-new weapons and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege full skins.
  • New Teammates: After completing the first mission of the live event, players will be able to deploy Operators Ash, Finka and Thatcher anywhere in the game and at any time from the menu, as an alternative to regular teammates. Their looks, weapons and unique capabilities are modeled from Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
  • More than 120 New Customization Items: Items include full skins from Operators and more.

Coinciding with the event, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will kick off a free weekend from January 21–24, available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Windows PC and Stadia. In addition to having full access to the base game’s content, new players will get the chance to experience the Amber Sky live event and earn related rewards. They can pre-load the game starting January 19 on Windows PC and consoles. The current free trial offer, which gives players full access to the main game with six hours of playtime, will be paused during the free weekend and reinstated on January 25. Players who have downloaded the free trial before January 21 will see trial restrictions lifted until the end of the free weekend.

In conjunction with this free weekend, there will discounts of up to 85% on the Standard and Gold Editions, as well as up to 70% off on the Year 1 Pass.
