Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Breakpoint, the latest installment in the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise, will hold a beta phase from September 5 to 8. It will be available on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC. Players can sign up now for a chance to participate at ghostrecon.com/beta. Players who pre-order any edition of the game will gain access to the beta.*
In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ghosts confront foes with the same training and experience that they have. The Wolves, a lethal ex–US military unit gone rogue, have seized the archipelago of Auroa, home of tech powerhouse Skell Technology. The Wolves are now armed with powerful killing machines from Skell’s cutting-edge drone factories. Stranded behind enemy lines and hunted down, players will face an intense military experience as they fight to survive and take down the Wolves and their leader, Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker.
The game stars critically acclaimed actor, Jon Bernthal, as Cole D. Walker, the most formidable villain ever in a Ghost Recon game. A former brother-in-arms, Walker took part in several missions alongside the Ghosts in the past. While his ties with his former brothers still exist, he is ready to do whatever it takes to defend Auroa and pursue his own ideals, which players will discover as they confront him in the game.
“The team was thrilled to work with Jon Bernthal to bring Cole D. Walker to life,” said Nouredine Abboud, executive producer at Ubisoft Paris. “Walker is a complex villain, and it was important for us to find someone who could bring the necessary level of depth to the character. Jon did a fantastic job, and we can’t wait for players to see him in action!”
Ubisoft also presented its new community program, Ghost Recon Delta Company, which will support the passion and creativity of community members with special content and direct discussions with the lead development studio. Available globally and in more than ten languages, this is the largest community program Ubisoft has ever launched.
