Ghost Recon Breakpoint to launch on Epic Games Store

Shooter marks third Ubisoft release on the platform

Recently announced tactical shooter Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be available on the Epic Games store and not Steam, publisher Ubisoft has told PCGamesN.

Breakpoint will also be released on Ubisoft’s own Uplay digital distribution platform, as is the norm for its games.

The same release strategy was adopted for fellow Ubisoft games The Division 2 and Anno 1880, which launched on Uplay and the Epic Games store earlier this year.

In January, Epic announced it would be partnering with Ubisoft on “additional select titles” to be announced throughout the year.

Epic has adopted a strategy of aggressively signing exclusive game releases for its platform, such as Metro Exodus and Borderlands 3, in some cases resulting in already announced titles being removed from Valve‘s rival store.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint was announced on Thursday and continues the open-world approach introduced in 2017’s Wildlands.

Either solo or in four-player co-op, players explore the fictional, private island of Auroa. The island, which is described as “advanced facilities meet wild and untamed nature”, is the base of operations for drone technology giant Skell.

When rogue spec ops forces known as ‘The Wolves’ take control of Auroa, the Ghost Recon team is sent in behind enemy lines.

Compared to Wildlands, Breakpoint includes “a lot, lot more” content for those playing solo, including more cut-scenes and dialogue options, its developer told VGC.
