Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon


 

Ubisoft has officially announced Ghost Recon Breakpoint for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

This latest entry in the series once again puts players in control of the Ghosts, but this time they are the ones being hunted. The game takes place on the island of Auroa, the home of Skell Technology, which has been taken over by the Wolves, an ex-U.S. Military unit of former Ghosts who have gone rogue. The Wolves are led by Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker (Jon Bernthal), who recently appeared in Ghost Recon Wildlands. The group have reprogrammed Skell’s drones into killing machines and will not hesitate to use them.

Watch a gameplay walkthrough, which goes through a number of the game’s features, below:

The game is available to preorder in four different editions: Standard, Gold, Ultimate, and Collector’s. The first special edition is the Gold Edition of the game, which includes access to the beta, three days of early access to the game, and the Year 1 Pass. While the Ultimate Edition includes everything found in the Gold Edition, plus a bonus mission and additional in-game items.

Finally, the Collector’s Edition features everything found in the previous two editions, as well as a SteelBook, a soundtrack, a confidential file with three lithographs, Walker’s Dog Tag, a waterproof map, and a 24 cm high figurine of Cole D. Walker. A full rundown of everything found in each edition can be found below:
