'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint' (ALL) Beta In September, Sign Up Now - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on June 10, 2019 @ 4:18 p.m. PDT

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.


Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will hold a beta phase from September 5 to 8, available on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Players can sign up now for a chance to participate at ghostrecon.com/beta. Players who pre-order any edition of the game will gain access to the beta.

The game stars critically acclaimed actor, Jon Bernthal, as Cole D. Walker, the most formidable villain ever in a Ghost Recon game. A former brother-in-arms, Walker took part in several missions alongside the Ghosts in the past. While his ties with his former brothers still exist, he is ready to do whatever it takes to defend Auroa and pursue his own ideals, which players will discover as they confront him in the game.

“The team was thrilled to work with Jon Bernthal to bring Cole D. Walker to life,” said Nouredine Abboud, executive producer at Ubisoft Paris. “Walker is a complex villain, and it was important for us to find someone who could bring the necessary level of depth to the character. Jon did a fantastic job, and we can’t wait for players to see him in action!”

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.

Additionally, Ubisoft announced the Gold, Ultimate and Wolves Collector’s Edition (Final content and release dates subject to change. Some features may not be available at launch. Content may be available for purchase and/or as giveaway(s) separately at Ubisoft’s sole discretion at any time) of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint as well as the standalone Ubicollectibles® figurine of Nomad:
