Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a third-person military shooter that places a giant bullseye on your back. You're being hunted and it's up to you to liberate the island of Auroa. While the game has received poor reviews since it launched a few months ago, Ubisoft is committed to making it better.

Today, Ubisoft announced that Ghost Recon Breakpoint: Episode 2, will be available on March 24. The start of Episode 2 coincides with the release of the "Title Update 2.0." The major changes are listed below.

Missions

A new Story Adventure tied to Episode 2 including eight narrative missions where players will team up with Sam Fisher, the renowned character from Splinter Cell. Together, they uncover a plot to develop mind-controlled military drones, and they will have to stop its development on Auroa. The Adventure will introduce new stealth-focused gameplay elements and feature cinematics with the voice of Michael Ironside.

Classes

Two new classes are available, with a one-week exclusivity for Year One pass owners. The Echelon class focuses on stealth, allowing players to move silently to eliminate enemies quietly. The Engineer class lets players deal more damage to drones and be more effective with grenade launchers.

Mode

The Ghost Experience is a new mode free to all players that will offer new immersive and tactical options to players and let them fully customize their experience, with the possibility of removing gear level and using a more realistic loot system.

Let's hope these changes make Ghost Recon Breakpoint a better game. It's come a long way since launch, but a lot of work remains.

In Windows Central's review, I wrote, "Overall, Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a good game, and one that I didn't expect to like as much as I did. I found Ghost Recon Wildlands to be an incredibly boring experience, and Ghost Recon Breakpoint redeems itself with a better story, voice acting, and gameplay enhancements."
