With the news about Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 getting a massive update in mid-September, you might start to wonder how Ubisoft is getting all this done during a pandemic…but hold onto your butts because there’s still MORE to come in the form of a massive Episode 3 update to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
The update, Episode 3 for those scoring along at home, hits September 15th and brings a new story adventure, a new class, and PVP tweaks.
The story has gamers going after the mastermind behind a plan to unleash attacks on American soil. Witha branching storyline and optional mission objectives, this should offer both ‘do it your way’ gameplay and some replay value. Owners of the Year 1 Pass have full access to the 10 mission pack, while those without the pass can play two missions before deciding if they want to buy it.
The new class is called Pathfinder, which has access to some pretty killer passive skills allowing them to spot hidden caches, thermal vision to spot enemies, and a metabolism that makes ration effects be more powerful and longer lasting.
In my review I thought the game needed some updates back when it first released, so maybe I should jump in again to see how it plays after Ghost Recon Episode 3 hits.
Here’s the full press release:
TOM CLANCY’S GHOST RECON® BREAKPOINT EPISODE 3 IS COMING SEPTEMBER 15 WITH A NEW ADVENTURE, NEW CLASS AND PVP UPDATES
Episode 3: Red Patriot Adventure Brings Exclusive Rewards
