Ghost Recon Breakpoint Will Be On Epic Games Store, Not Steam

by Liana Ruppert

Fans got their first look at Ghost Recon Breakpoint yesterday, and the continuation of the Wildlands story was met with instant praise from Tom Clancy fans. Now that we have our official reveal and a release date, it’s time to get excited about what’s next. Unfortunately for those that were looking to score the game on Steam, we’ve got some bad news. 

Ubisoft has their own PC client called UPlay and it’s not uncommon for them to have that client be an exclusive deal for first-party titles. In this case, it runs similarly, though Breakpoint will also be available on the Epic Games Store. For those looking to play on PC like me, Uplay or Epic Games are the two avenues. That, or opt into the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 versions.

“Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a military shooter set in a diverse and hostile open world. The game will be playable solo or in up to four-player co-op. Players will discover Auroa, a mysterious island where the most technically advanced facilities meet wild and untamed nature. Home to tech giant, Skell Technology, Auroa has fallen into the wrong hands and all contact has been lost. 

“The Wolves, a lethal ex-US Military unit of former Ghosts gone rogue, have taken over the island. Led by Nomad’s ex-brother-in-arms, Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, portrayed by Jon Bernthal, they have reprogrammed Skell’s drones into killing machines and are ready to use them, no matter the casualties. Nomad and the Ghosts are sent in on a recon mission, but their helicopters are shot down. Injured, without support, and hunted down, players will live an intense military experience as they fight to survive, take down the Wolves and regain control of Auroa.”
