What you need to know

  • Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a third-person tactical shooter.
  • The game got a new trailer today.
  • It's launching for Xbox One and other platforms in October.
  • 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 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.

The new Ghost Recon Breakpoint gameplay trailer highlights the latest intel on the world, story, co-op experience, and the post-launch content. You should watch it to gain a better understanding of the game.

The game should launch on October 4, starting at $60. It's going to be Xbox One X Enhanced because the team told us that it runs at "upscaled 4K and 30 FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X." As with any Ubisoft title, there will be a multitude of editions, including a Ubisoft Store exclusive collector's edition which appears to feature the villain.
