Ghost Recon Breakpoint 'Ghost War' multiplayer focuses on tactical combat

What you need to know

  • Ghost Recon Breakpoint is coming to Xbox One and other platforms in October.
  • The game got a new trailer today which details the multiplayer mode.
  • Ghost War is an intense four-on-four experience built on tactical squad play.
  • You can preorder it for $50 through Amazon (opens in new tab).

A few months ago, Ubisoft unveiled Ghost Recon Breakpoint for Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, and Google Stadia. The game is a 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 game.

The title is designed to push you further than you've ever gone before. 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.

Today, during the Inside Xbox livestream at Gamescom 2019, the publisher unveiled Ghost War, the player vs. player mode for Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Ghost War will be available for all players at launch on October 4 and will receive regular content updates. The team added that "Ghost War is an intense four vs. four experience built on the tactical squad play from the Ghost Recon series, where strategy and teamwork are just as important as skill."

If you can't wait to get your hands on Ghost Recon Breakpoint, there's a beta taking place from September 5 to 8 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. Players who preorder any edition of the game will gain access to the beta.
