The Open Beta phase for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will run from Sept. 26-29 Ubisoft announced Wednesday.
The Open Beta will be available for everyone to play and test the game for free ahead of its worldwide launch on Oct. 4th on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. The Beta can be downloaded on Sept. 24th, 11 am BST on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Uplay, and 4 pm BST on the Epic Store. In addition, Ubisoft is kicking off the game’s launch campaign with the release of a new live-action trailer starring Grammy Award-winning artist Lil Wayne.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint Open Beta will offer new and exclusive content that wasn’t available in the Closed Beta. Players will be able to discover three extra main story missions, allowing them to delve deeper in the game’s storyline, two new regions (called New Argyll and Infinity) in addition to the four regions already unveiled during Closed Beta, and play intense competitive Elimination matches with their friends in Breakpoint’s PvP mode, Ghost War.
Four PvP tailored-maps will be available for these Four-v-Four showdowns: the PMC Camp, Port, Cold War Bunker and Harbor. Additionally, with four new daily missions, players will now be able to complete up to 12 daily Faction Missions during the Open Beta. More information can be found here.
“Squad Up ft. Lil Wayne” Live-Action Trailer
The live-action sequences were shot in Vancouver, Canada, directed by David Leitch (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and Deadpool 2) and produced by Minted Content in Los Angeles. Ubisoft worked with San Francisco–based agency Argonaut on the development of the concept and overall creative direction and execution of the “Squad Up ft. Lil’ Wayne” campaign.
“More than anything, the key point of all action is to tell a story, and in this spot, we’re telling a story with these characters in the world of the game and also the characters in their worlds at home,” said David Leitch. “We wanted to make sure we have these distinct characters that jump off the page and that the action defines them in a real particular way. We have this fun juxtaposition with the different characters and their voices too, which is a great conceit.”
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be available Oct. 4 on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, Windows PC and UPLAY+, Ubisoft’s subscription service.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will also launch on the new generation gaming platform, Stadia.
