Ghost War will be available for all players at launch on October 4 and will receive regular content updates. Players who want to try Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint for themselves, including Ghost War, can sign up for the Beta taking place September 5 to 8 on PS4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC. Players who pre-order any edition of the game will gain access to the Beta.
Ghost War is an intense 4v4 experience built on the tactical squad play from the Ghost Recon series, where strategy and teamwork are just as important as skill. At launch, players will be able to choose from four classes, Assault, Panther, Sharpshooter and Medic, each fulfilling specific roles on the battlefield as they engage with enemies across six unique maps. New features, such as cover mechanics, impact of the terrain and injury system were adapted from the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s campaign and will bring additional depth to the experience.
Two distinct modes will be available at launch:
• Elimination is an intense team death match mode with a tactical twist where the new shrinking combat zone mechanics force players to jump into the heat of the fight!
• Sabotage is an asymmetrical bomb mode where attackers have to plant and successfully detonate a bomb at either of the Bomb Sites, while defenders try to stop them.
For the first time, Ghost War is seamlessly integrated within the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint experience. With the new shared progression system, each player will progress in PvE and PvP with the same character and keep their unlocked classes, skills, customization items and weapons across both modes. Specific tuning will be implemented for PvP to ensure a fair and skill-based experience for all players.
Ghost War benefits from the development team’s learnings from over two years of support on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands’ PvP. The team introduced several improvements based on player feedback, such as improved detection mechanics and removed class restrictions per team. In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ghost War will also have dedicated servers, reduced loading screens and improved matchmaking.
Additionally, Ghost War will receive massive post-launch support. In addition to regular balancing updates and improvements, the development team plans to bring new maps, new classes, new weapons and even new modes and events will be added in the future to enrich and refresh the experience over time.
