During Gamescom 2019, Ubisoft announced some new details about Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the next game in the Ghost Recon series. Those hoping to get in on early testing through the first PvP Ghost War beta event have been invited to head over to the official site to sign up. Those who want guaranteed access can pre-order the game to ensure a spot.
In addition to the beta sign-ups for Ghost War, the team laid out several new details about how PvP will function in Breakpoint. Ghost War is a 4v4 match with tactical squad play at its core. “Strategy and teamwork are just as important as skill,” the blog reads.
Players will be able to choose from four classes: Assault, Panther, Sharpshooter, and Medic. In addition, there will be six maps that include cover mechanics, the injury system, and “impact of the terrain”.
Two modes will be available at launch:
- Elimination is an intense team deathmatch mode with a tactical twist where the new shrinking combat zone mechanics force players to jump into the heat of the fight!
- Sabotage is an asymmetrical bomb mode where attackers have to plant and successfully detonate a bomb at either of the Bomb Sites, while defenders try to stop them.
About Ghost Recon Breakpoint Ghost War
For the first time, Ghost War is seamlessly integrated within the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint experience. With the new shared progression system, each player will progress in PvE and PvP with the same character and keep their unlocked classes, skills, customization items and weapons across both modes. Specific tuning will be implemented for PvP to ensure a fair and skill-based experience for all players.
Ghost War benefits from the development team’s learnings from over two years of support on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands’ PvP. The team introduced several improvements based on player feedback, such as improved detection mechanics and removed class restrictions per team. In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ghost War will also have dedicated servers, reduced loading screens, and improved matchmaking.
Additionally, Ghost War will receive massive post-launch support. In addition to regular balancing updates and improvements, the development team plans to bring new maps, new classes, new weapons, and even new modes and events will be added in the future to enrich and refresh the experience over time.
