Ubisoft Is Massively Reworking Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Ubisoft Is Massively Reworking Ghost Recon Breakpoint

In as extreme a case of eating crow as you’ll see from a big game publisher, Ubisoft said today that they are cancelling Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s planned second raid, reducing its aggravating always-online requirement, and will soon release an update that lets players deactivate its despised loot system. It’s all in service of trying to salvage a game that has had a disastrous first five...

Ghost Recon Breakpoint's Long-Awaited Overhaul Has Been Delayed At The Last Minute

Ghost Recon Breakpoint's Long-Awaited Overhaul Has Been Delayed At The Last Minute

Ghost Recon Breakpoint players just can’t catch a break.

The game was supposed to get a massive “immersive mode” overhaul this month addressing a number of issues players have had with Breakpoint since it launched last fall. Now, just days before the end of February, Ubisoft has announced that the update won’t arrive until sometime in the spring.

“The complexity of integrating this new mode...

My Failed Quest For A Terminator Truck Is Modern Gaming In A Nutshell

My Failed Quest For A Terminator Truck Is Modern Gaming In A Nutshell
Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

I was wrong about the Terminator truck that recently popped up as a reward in Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

The RT-5 Shepherd Mk. II was the ultimate reward for grinding through a batch of Terminator missions that were added to the big Ubisoft game a couple of weeks ago. Most of those missions, and the...

The Terminator Event In Ghost Recon Breakpoint Is Good

The Terminator Event In Ghost Recon Breakpoint Is Good

As many problems as Ghost Recon Breakpoint still has, it now also has Terminators. They’re actually a good addition to the game and part of a special live event week that kicked off on Wednesday and sort of ends on Thursday of next week.

The event is fun, especially if you like the idea of Terminators suddenly, seemingly randomly invading the unrelated game you’re playing.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Players Really Want AI Teammates

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Players Really Want AI Teammates

Ghost Recon Breakpoint players want to see the game become more tactical, less grindy, and be less online, according to the results of a player survey Ubisoft shared on Friday.

Thousands of players participated in the survey. The requested changes and additions, many of which are already in the works, aren’t that surprising to anyone who’s been playing the game regularly or following its...

Major Ghost Recon Breakpoint Update Isn't Enough To Fix The Game

Major Ghost Recon Breakpoint Update Isn't Enough To Fix The Game

Today, Ghost Recon Breakpoint got its biggest update since launch. Besides the two new faction missions, there are a host of tweaks, some big, some small, touching on almost every aspect of the game. They might not turn Breakpoint into a game you need to play, but they are slowly turning it into the sort of Ghost Recon experience players have come to expect coming off two and a half years of...

Ubisoft Admits Ghost Recon Breakpoint Has Been A Disaster

Ubisoft Admits Ghost Recon Breakpoint Has Been A Disaster

During an earnings call Thursday, Ubisoft gave investors a brutally frank appraisal of Ghost Recon Breakpoint, its latest release and vowed to implement “significant changes to our production processes” to fix the game.

In a prepared statement you can read online, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot laid out the reasons the publisher believes the open-world special ops shooter didn’t sell as well as...

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Is An Infuriating Mess

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Is An Infuriating Mess

I have never played a game as inconsistent as Ghost Recon Breakpoint. In its finest moments, when the stars align, it delivers stealth action on par with the best in the genre. When it falls apart, as it usually does, a tangled weave of glitches and half-baked systems reveal a game compromised by bland AAA design sensibilities and a ceaseless desire to churn out content at a breakneck pace.

Every Bald Eagle Tattoo From Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ranked

Every Bald Eagle Tattoo From Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ranked

I’m here to talk about something odd I discovered in the recently released Ghost Recon Breakpoint. For some reason, players have access to not one, not two, not four, but five different tattoos featuring a Bald eagle and American imagery.

The new Ghost Recon game launched earlier this week. I jumped into the game and messed around with it for a few hours. It seems fine. If you want more...

If Only Ghost Recon Breakpoint Were More Like Assassin's Creed

If Only Ghost Recon Breakpoint Were More Like Assassin's Creed

Assassin’s Creed games have gotten better and better at establishing a sense of place and filling that place with tons of satisfying, stealthy missions. After a few hours with Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo is still mostly just thinking about how much he likes Assassin’s Creed. On this week’s Kotaku Splitscreen, we talk about his initial impressions of Ubisoft’s...

You Can Fight Ghost Recon Breakpoint's Main Villain Right Away, If You're Foolish Enough

You Can Fight Ghost Recon Breakpoint's Main Villain Right Away, If You're Foolish Enough

I’ll be blunt: Playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint has been a drag. My initial ambivalence has given way to outright frustration as I trudge through generic military gameplay and the tangled web of pointless microtransactions. But Breakpoint has a twist that also offers a unique challenge. If you want, you can search and find the location of the enemy commander and try to take him out right from...

Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s Microtransactions Explained

Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s Microtransactions Explained

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is in early access before its full launch on Friday. It offers a somewhat generic but capable military shooter to hardcore fans. Looming over everything has been the specter of microtransactions. The game offers lots of them. So far, we’ve seen that you can easily ignore them.

First thing first: none of Breakpoint’s microtransactions are required for a comfortable...

These Are My Settings For Every Video Game

These Are My Settings For Every Video Game
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

I started playing a new video game yesterday: Ghost Recon Breakpoint. But It might as well have been any other console game, in terms of how I set up the settings.

Brightness? I’m going to make sure that symbol is pretty visible. After all, who knows what “barely visible” even means. It’s all relative. I never...

Five Hours With Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Five Hours With Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is here, or is it hiding in that bush over there? Whatever the case, Ubisoft’s latest addition to the Tom Clancy video game canon is here with plenty of loot to find and bases to assault. Breakpoint brings a lot of improvements over 2017’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. Cool character creation, tons of weapon customization, an actual villain. But it’s also rough in other areas,...

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, the follow-up to 2017’s popular and controversial

Ghost Recon: Wildlands , kicked off its closed beta weekend yesterday, letting players who pre-ordered the game take on two early story missions and a host of side missions that ostensibly will give players a clearer picture of what to expect when the game launches October 4. Almost immediately, players have been...

Ubisoft's Tom Clancy Is About To Compete With Ubisoft's Tom Clancy

Ubisoft's Tom Clancy Is About To Compete With Ubisoft's Tom Clancy

It seems that every major video game publisher wants their own perpetually-updated mega-game that has a post-release content plan longer a U.S. presidential election cycle. The pinnacle of this is Ubisoft, which does everything extra large and appears to be testing the gaming world’s appetite by trying to do this with two similar games at once.

That’s the risk and reward evident in yesterday’s...

Tim Rogers checked out the Ubisoft booth at E3, and shenanigans ensued. Watch the video for a look at Watch Dogs: Legion, a very intense staring contest, and the one question that has surely been on everyone’s minds: What, exactly, is a Ghost Recon Breakpoint?

I was playing Ghost Recon: Breakpoint as the assault class, Fixit. I had been doing my best to act as a tank for my teammates by getting out front and shooting people with my assault rifle. But my injuries started to add up: First I got nicked in the arm, then the leg....

Ghost Recon Bungled Bolivia, So At Least They're Going Somewhere Fictional This Time

Ghost Recon Bungled Bolivia, So At Least They're Going Somewhere Fictional This Time

The first thing you might notice about Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, the newly-announced follow-up to 2017’s co-op special ops shooter Ghost Recon: Wildlands, is its setting. The fictional Auroa islands are a marked shift from the previous game’s take on the real-world South American nation of Bolivia. Dig a little deeper, and you’ll find more change: Instead of a cartel fronted by a charismatic...
