Ghost Recon Breakpoint was released in October 2019 by Ubisoft. It is the 11th installment of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon series and a direct continuation of Ghost Recon Wildlands. In Breakpoint you take on the role of Ghost Squad leader Nomad, tasked with investigating several disturbances on the open world island of Auroa. Breakpoint is a co-op game, allowing up to 4 players to work together to uncover the secrets of the island. There is a huge variety of tactics and methods to play. Breakpoint’s initial release was met with heavily mixed reviews due to some major bugs and glitches found within the game.
There are two different ways to play Breakpoint, immersive and regular. The immersive experience involves removing gear leveling from your play meaning you have to focus more on customizing and upgrading the weapons you enjoy most. As well as this, stamina is reduced, bandages are limited and unused ammo is lost on reload. Overall, this results in a very different and more tactical play style than the regular experience. What I love about these play styles is that you can customize your experience by tweaking settings to create a world best suited to you.
As you progress through the story you unlock more ways to customize your weapons and play style while unlocking the secrets of the island. There are bivouacs scattered across the island. Once you unlock them, you can fast travel between them. This makes moving around quick and easy. If that isn’t your style, there are also many vehicle options for all the terrains on the island: from the snowy mountain peaks to the harsh bog and open sea. The day and night cycle works well along with the weather system. This means you can strike at the right time to gain advantages such as being harder to spot at night. The enemy AI system results in realistic reactions and responses like becoming alert when they find a body or spot a scouting drone.
Overall, this game offers a highly customized experience. It is great fun to play in both single player and co-op and offers more of a challenge than its predecessor.
