Updated October 4, 2019: Ghost Recon Breakpoint is now available to everyone, even those who purchased the Standard Edition of the game.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a story-driven co-op adventure which also pushes the boundaries of storytelling and features The Punisher's Jon Bernthal. Many fans thought that Ghost Recon Breakpoint would be an expansion for Ghost Recon Wildlands, but it's an entirely new experience. The title is designed to push you further than you've ever gone in a Ghost Recon game. Instead of the usual organization and certainty of your actions, you're being hunted by a powerful enemy and thrown onto the dangerous Pacific island of Auroa.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is supposed to launch on Friday, but if you want to get your hands on it early, you can purchase the Gold or Ultimate editions and start playing right now. Early access doesn't come cheap, with the Ultimate Edition going for $120. However, it comes with a mission and other in-game items.

  • I've been having this issue on Xbox One X. Couldn't heal over 1 bar. Couldn't use the canteen, so I am low heath, can't heal, and can't drink. Did discover I could use my healing drop to shoot myself with a syringe, but that didn't help much. I closed the game and rejoined the lobby 3 times and would come back in the same state and the wheel still not working. Got mad and switched over the Human Fall Flat. Guess no game will ever compete. I'll keep checking back for other fixes.
