Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the follow-up to 2017’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, though developer Ubisoft is taking a different approach this time around. Breakpoint will have a darker tone, the developer says, in its new fictional New Zealand-esque setting, Aurora.
Aurora is home to Skell Technology, a corporation specializing in AI drone tech. When communication with the company ceases, you’re sent to the archipelago to investigate. When you arrive, however, you find yourself not in the role of the hunter, but the hunted.
Throughout Breakpoint, you’ll encounter a paramilitary group known as the Wolves, who Ubisoft says are just as skilled on the battlefield as the Ghosts. Because of this, the game places a greater emphasis on stealth. You’ll be able to employ drones and hide the bodies of any enemies you kill. Similarly, you can avoid detection by crouching in foliage or covering yourself with mud. The game also features some survival elements; any injuries you sustain need to be treated, and you need to maintain your weapons.
