You can buy a whole lot of things with real money in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and while that’s par for the course in modern games, reports from the game’s earliest players suggested the monetisation was beyond the pale. For many players, that might still be the case – but some of Breakpoint’s most egregious purchase options have apparently gone missing.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is just around the corner. With the open beta having gone live last week and the full release date of October 4 fast approaching, Ubisoft is offering a bunch of launch info you’ll want to know ready for when it arrives – covering pre-loading, file sizes, server start timings, plus more. Best of all, pre-loading of digital copies is available on PC right now.
Players who have tried out the Ghost Recon Breakpoint open beta that’s running until tomorrow morning have shared their reactions on various social media outlets and forums, and they seem fairly split over this new entry in the Ghost Recon series. Some are frustrated by bugs and new design choices, while others have enjoyed their time on the fictional archipelago of Auroa.
Despite a minor hiccup, the open beta for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is now live, so players are now getting their first taste of the online tactical shooter.

The Ghost Recon Breakpoint open beta was supposed to begin earlier this morning. But when players attempted to log in, they were met with an error message. Ubisoft has now followed up, informing players that there’ll be something of a delay in the start of the test.
Ubisoft’s upcoming tactical shooter Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is getting a new system for earning goodies – a Battle Rewards system.

The latest Tom Clancy title is on the way, and Ubisoft’s modern focus on PC gaming looks to pay dividends when Ghost Recon Breakpoint launches in a few months. Today, the developers have revealed the full system requirements for the game – just in time for the beta, which launches next week.
Just about everybody’s got their own gaming subscription at this point. EA has Origin Access, Microsoft has Xbox Game Pass, Ubisoft is introducing Uplay Plus, and subscriptions will likely play a big part in the future of streaming services like Stadia. According to one report, game subscriptions aren’t just the future – they’re already here.
Ubisoft has long insisted that its games, despite often including torn-from-the-headlines settings and references, aren’t explicitly political. The company’s vice president of editorial, Tommy Francois, recently sat down for an in-house interview to clarify Ubisoft’s position on politics in games, and the result makes for some refreshingly frank reading.
Depending on how you felt about your AI squadmates and their occasional bouts of clumsiness in Ghost Recon Wildlands, it was nice to have some company when raiding sicario hideouts across Bolivia. However, if you plan on playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint single-player, then Ubisoft has confirmed that you won’t have any human AI squadmates backing you up.
