Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Ubisoft has wrapped up the Ghost Recon Breakpoint open beta ahead of tomorrow’s headstart launch. We’ve compiled all the things you need to know to make sure you’re fully prepared for one of the year’s most-anticipated games.

First off, it’s always wise to check your system specs to see if you measure up to the minimum / recommended stats:


  • Minimum – Low Setting | 1080p
  • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 1200/Intel Core I5 4460
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU: AMD Radeon R9 280X/Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 (4 GB)


  • Recommended – High Setting | 1080p
  • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600/Intel Core I7 6700K
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU: AMD Radeon RX 480/Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 (6 GB)

With that out of the way, you might be wondering when you can preload Breakpoint. The good news is that it’s available for all available platforms in all versions and regions. PS4 Standard Edition players can preload the game starting at midnight on October 1st.

Preload sizes are pretty hefty so prepare accordingly:

  • Uplay / Epic Games Store PC – 41.36 GB that includes the Day 1 Patch
  • PlayStation 4 – 47.3GB preload with a 10GB Day 1 Patch
  • Xbox One – 40.1 GB preload with a 13.5GB Day 1 Patch

Keep in mind that October 1st marks early access for those who purchased the Gold Edition or who pre-ordered the game. The public release is Friday, October 4th. Here are the regional start times for both early access and public release.
