Ubisoft has detailed some updates headed to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint this month, including new faction missions, bug fixes and game-feel improvements, and more.
In a November roadmap update, Ubisoft outlined the changes coming in two scheduled updates for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint–Title Update 1.0.3, which arrives on November 12; and Title Update 184.108.40.206, which is slated for the end of the month.
November 12’s update includes two new faction missions: A Deadly Trap and Whistleblower. In A Deadly Trap, you’re tasked with helping the Homesteaders protect themselves from a planned virus attack by gathering enough supplies to survive. Whistleblower will see you aid potential rebels in their escape to the Outcasts by covering their tracks. These faction missions occur every three weeks and completing them nets you Battle Points, which are used to unlock Battle Rewards.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will also see several mechanics changed in the November 12 update, including a more fluid cover-switch system, night vision goggles no longer blocking crosshairs, and more. For example, stamina conservation will be better, with stamina depleting slower and recovering faster when Title Update 1.0.3 arrives. Ubisoft clarified that full patch notes will be “available soon.”
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint has had a rough go since its October 4 launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot saying the game had “very disappointing sales.” Still, Guillemot outlined the studio’s plans to improve the looter-shooter. And the title managed to snag the number two spot on the US PlayStation Store’s best-selling games of October.
