It’s planning three episodes of new content, starting with the release of Episode 1 Operation Greenstone at launch, followed by Episode 2 four months later and Episode 3 four months after that.
Each episode will include new story-driven and end-game content, an additional class, plus live events and PvP updates.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint year one content:
- New Adventures: New story-driven content that expands the main story of the game will be available with each episode.
- New End-Game Content: Every Episode will bring new End-Game content. Episode 1 brings the Project Titan Raid. Players will explore an active volcano on a new island in the Auroa archipelago where they need to use all the skills learned on Auroa in intense four-play co-op challenges. The Raid is replayable and adaptable for all play styles.
- New Faction Missions: Factions in the game will evolve over time and every month, new narrative Story Faction Missions will be released, bringing context as well as character development. New Faction Missions will be available daily and will provide objectives to support the factions and their narrative arcs.
- New Classes: Three new classes will be introduced in Year 1, starting with the Engineer which brings an expertise in hacking.
- Live Events: These events will feature VIPs that will help Nomad tackle new, terrible threats. A new Event will be available with each Year 1 Episode and lasts one month.
- PvP Updates: In addition to the three new classes coming Year 1, which will be fully playable in PvP, new maps and updates will keep Ghost War players on their toes.
- Regular New Content: New content such as new missions, activities and unlockables will be available with each new episode.
The Ghost Recon Breakpoint closed beta, which is running from September 5-9, is also now available to pre-load.
Additionally, Ubisoft has released a new trailer for the game (above) featuring actor Jon Bernthal, who plays chief antagonist Colonel D. Walker.
Compared to predecessor Ghost Recon Wildlands, Breakpoint includes “a lot, lot more” content for those playing solo, including more cut-scenes and dialogue options, its developer told VGC earlier this year.
With development led by Ubisoft Paris (with support from seven other Ubisoft studios), the second open-world entry in the tactical shooter series will be released on October 4 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC via Uplay and the Epic Games store.
