Ubisoft on Thursday officially unveiled the next game in the popular Ghost Recon franchise, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint boasts 11 unique biomes across a remote archipelago in the South Pacific that’s home to a mysterious Silicon Valley startup called Skell Technology. You’ll do battle with The Wolves, a group of former Ghosts that have gone rogue. Led by Colonel Cole D. Walker (the same character introduced in last week’s Operation Oracle DLC for Wildlands), they’ve taken control of Skell’s drone technology and it’s up to you to stop them.

Breakpoint’s open-world archipelago can be experienced either alone or with a group of friends courtesy of Ghost Recon’s co-op mode. There’s also competitive PvP multiplayer to test your skills against others in “high-action game modes.”

Ubisoft published a nearly 14-minute-long gameplay walkthrough alongside the announcement trailer.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available to pre-order now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC in standard, gold, ultimate and collector’s editions. It launches on October 4 although you can start playing a few days early on October 1 with a gold or higher pre-order. All versions include the base game and guaranteed access to the beta.

Thank God one company hasn't abandoned the single player! I'll be saving my coins ..... but $60 to $190 for the different editions isn't exactly cheap ..... wonder how long it will take before they drop the price point ......

A 1 month or 2 after launch since it's launching 6 weeks before BF. Then there's xmas so itll be on sale, even more so if it doesn't sell well but I think it will.
This has been the case the past few years for games.

CoD is bringing back SP mode which they never should have got rid of to begin with. BFV, while short, has a great story n its fun.

Ubisoft has tons of games that are single player.

Can't wait for Ghost Recon Breakpoint and first comparison video on youtube - fake walkthrough vs. real game.
Can we bet how many animations will vanish or will be simplified in the final product? How many textures will be muddy thx to console parity? How many gameplay features will be missing? How many outposts you will have to liberate or towers to climb on?
