Ubisoft has issued Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint Beta with a deployment date. And that will come in less than a week, on September 5th. But they’ve revealed a whole lot more than simply when the battle starts, along with a hearty dose of enthusiasm.
The whole team sounds absolutely gung-ho.
First, it’s worth pointing out the Beta is only available to those with a valid pre-order of the game or a uPlay+ subscriber. Or those who have registered on the official site and are picked at random.
Then there’s the matter of timings, which range from 3:00 am PST to 8:00pm AEST. These obviously depend on the region you inhabit, but could restrict the amount of testing time you have available depending on your weekend plans; it runs through to September 9th.
Third, there’s the breadth of content available. A total of four regions will be available, alongside more than ten missions spanning three categories. These are:
You will have access to the following four regions:
- Smuggler Coves
- Mount Hodgson
- Sinking Country
- Fen Bog
- Operation Greenstone: Two missions from the main storyline.
- Auroa Missions: Side missions to discover more about the island and its inhabitants.
- Faction Missions: Eight new Factions missions per day.
And finally, three drone areas will be active to test your modern combative skills. These will be spread throughout the regions, and are designed to provide a good old challenge to even the hardest of veterans.
- Murmurs: Small flying drones that will swarm the unprepared.
- Aamons: Mid-size land drones that pack a punch with agility to match.
- Behemoths: Large drones with massive firepower and heavy armor.
