Last week we were in Ubisoft’s office to experience its upcoming game – Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Although we got a look at the game in their Mumbai office, our 30-odd minute experience wasn’t enough for us, which is why we spent a good amount of time playing the closed beta over the weekend.
We got to try out different missions at Ubisoft’s office and closed beta but the main objective of the game is the same – defeat the Ghosts aka The Wolves who have gone rogue.
Ghosts are customised into classes and depending on your preference, you can select from four different classes – Assault, Panther for stealth, Sharpshooter for sniper and Medic for healers. Each class comes with its own set of progression system that aids players in the battlefield. For instance, for the Panther class we were playing with, can be equipped with a spray that makes their detection difficult for drones.
Speaking of drones, you get a drone yourself to control that can give you an aerial view of the enemies or carry out specific tasks like healing the player with a healer drone.
This time, however, customisation plays a huge role. The game allows endless customisations right from the looks of the player to the weapons. We hope these weapon customisations don’t spoil the realism that seasoned Ghost Recon fans look for. Nevertheless, the brief gameplay time was fun.
Ghost Recon Break releases next month on October 4 and can be pre-ordered right now on Games The Shop.
