Ubisoft Announces Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint

Back in 2017, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands strayed from the series’ origin with an open-world environment that ended up being one of Ubisoft’s best games of all time. Today, Ubisoft has announced a direct sequel to Wildlands with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. The game will take place on an island known as Aurora as the same Nomad team from Wildlands is stuck behind enemy lines. This game will feature a fictional story. Nomad’s reconnaissance mission quickly turns into a fight for survival when hostile drones shoot down the Ghosts’ helicopter. As the sole survivor, Nomad quickly learns that even the world’s most highly trained hunters can become the hunted. Cole D. Walker will be played by Jon Bernthal, who portrays the Punisher in the Marvel series and portrayed Shane on the Walking Dead.

“From the earliest stages of Breakpoint, the survival aspect was a huge driving force,” says Emil Daubon, writer, military consultant, and 14-year Green Beret veteran. “We wanted to create a fantasy where the player was truly trapped behind enemy lines in a survival and combat scenario. There’s a palpable, visceral stress and anxiety of being alone in a hostile environment and needing to rely on your surroundings to procure food, water, ammo, weapons, and equipment.”

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will be available October 4 for PlayStation Pro, Xbox One and PC. Watch the reveal trailer below.
