'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint' (ALL) Reveals More Year 1 Post-Launch Details
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a military shooter set in a diverse and hostile open world entirely playable solo or in up to four-player co-op. Players will discover Auroa, a mysterious island where the most technically advanced facilities meet wild and untamed nature. Home to drone creators, tech giant Skell Technology, Auroa has fallen into the wrong hands and all contact has been lost.
The Wolves, a lethal ex-US Military unit of former Ghosts gone rogue, have taken over the island. Led by Nomad's ex-brother-in-arms, Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, portrayed by Jon Bernthal, they have reprogrammed Skell's drones into killing machines and are ready to use them, no matter the casualties. Nomad and the Ghosts are sent in on a recon mission, but their helicopters are shot down. Injured, without support, and hunted down, players will live an intense military experience as they fight to survive, take down the Wolves and regain control of Auroa.
Steep slopes, accumulating injuries, and fatigue are new challenges for players to tackle as they test their survival skills in the varied terrains of Auroa. To overcome adversity, players will enjoy total freedom to accomplish their missions and have plenty of tactical options and tools at their disposal, including a set of new military features. They will be able to carry enemies and teammates' bodies, blend into their environment with prone camo and set up camp with teammates in the bivouac to manage equipment, change classes, and fine-tune their strategies.
They will also be able to choose among thousands of customization combinations to create their perfect Ghost, and keep their character and progression through the game in both the main campaign and Player-versus-player (PvP), available at launch.

All standard weapons and attachments can be obtained by playing the game! You also have the ability to gain instant access through the store. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint will have two forms of currency:
- Skell Credits - Earned by playing the game or purchased with Ghost Coins. You will earn plenty of Skell Credits through in-game activities like looting, completing missions, playing Ghost War matches, etc.

- Unlocking weapon attachments automatically (you can find them in-game for free)
- Exclusive customization options
- Exclusive vehicles
- Various time savers
- Rewards Booster
The majority of items in packs can be purchased individually if desired.Time Savers
Crafting materials, to craft medicinal items or explosives, will also be available for purchase.
Skell Credit packs can be bought for purchasing items in the shop.
Battle Rewards Boosters will double your past and future Battle Points in Battle Rewards. This means you will be able to unlock rewards faster. The Battle Rewards Booster will start being available two weeks after launch and is purchasable with Ghost Coins.
New to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the introduction of the Battle Rewards system.
- Players progress in Battle Rewards by earning Battle Points, which are obtained by completing faction missions or Ghost War matches.
- The number of Battle Points a player can earn in a day is capped.
- Each tier of Battle Rewards will provide access to exclusive rewards.
- Each Episode will have two separate phases (called Acts) of Battle Rewards. Each Act will offer a fresh set of 50 items to unlock.
Each Act will have milestone items that all players will get on that tier. The items granted in-between will be randomly selected from the pool of 50, minus the ones you have already received and the milestone items. You will not get duplicates and are guaranteed to get all 50 items if you reach each tier before the Act is completed.
Two weeks after launch you will be able to purchase a Rewards Booster using Ghost Coins for that Act if you want to gain the rewards more quickly. However, engaged players will always be able to unlock all of the tiers for free by earning enough Battle Points.
At the launch of Google Stadia, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint will support the Stream Connect feature, which allows players to display the game of up to three Co-Op teammates on their screen.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint will include a robust post-launch content support plan, with regular updates after launch. New story arcs, classes and features will be continuously added, and for the first time in a Ghost Recon game, a new type of endgame content: raids.
Additionally, Ubisoft announced the Gold, Ultimate and Wolves Collector's Edition (Final content and release dates subject to change. Some features may not be available at launch. Content may be available for purchase and/or as giveaway(s) separately at Ubisoft's sole discretion at any time) of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint as well as the standalone Ubicollectibles® figurine of Nomad:

- The standalone Ubicollectibles figurine of Nomad is available for preorder on the Ubisoft store.
Fans who purchase the Gold, Ultimate, or Collector's Edition will have access to the game up to three days early. Fans who pre-order (available at participating retailers) Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint will receive access to the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint Beta closer to launch, as well as the Sentinel Corp. pack which includes exclusive gear.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be available October 4 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, as well the Google Stadia gaming platform.
