After a couple of teasers and leaks, we finally have some official news regarding the new Ghost Recon game. Yesterday, during an official stream, Ubisoft finally unveiled Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

Let us be honest – the new Ghost Recon game doesn’t look very intriguing. There are a couple of reasons for that. First, the new game seems to avoid difficult and realistic subjects such as the latest Ghost Recon: Wildlands which was set in Bolivia. While the game’s narrative wasn’t that great it still managed to create a buzz touching on such sensitive matters as the drug cartels in the country. Ghost Recon Breakpoint is set in Auroa, a fictional Pacific island. Auroa serves as the headquarters of a corporation focused on AI research and advanced military technology.

From that comes our second concern – Ghost Recon Breakpoint seemingly abandoning the path of realism and introducing even more sci-fi elements which likely won’t be appreciated by the fans of the original Ghost Recon. During the announcement, Ubisoft kept on repeating ‘realistic’ but the new game looks anything but that. But, of course, we might be wrong about it as well…

As for the gameplay, Ghost Recon Breakpoint looks very familiar. It expands upon the Wildlands formula featuring a massive open world, four-player co-op alongside other things. You can check the game in action here:

Ubisoft also revealed the release date of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The game should launch on October 4th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s also worth mentioning that the game on PC will be an Epic Games exclusive. We hope that the company will reveal more details as the launch date approaches closer.
