Pre-order and get guaranteed access, or sign up for a chance to get in for free.
Actor Jon Bernthal appeared on stage during Ubsioft's press conference at E3 2019 to explain just how frighteningly lethal his villainous character, Cole Walker, will be in Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Thanks to an upcoming beta for the game, you might not have to wait until the full release on October 4 to fight Walker and his Wolves.
On stage during the press conference, Ubisoft announced it's kicking off a closed beta for Breakpoint that will start on September 5. Pre-ordering the game guarantees you access to the beta, but you can also sign up on the Breakpoint website for a chance to get early access to the game for free.
"Ghost Recon Breakpoint's Beta is an opportunity to get an early taste of what the game has to offer," the website reads. "Register now for a chance to be among the first players to enter the world of Ghost Recon Breakpoint."
Ubisoft also showed off a new trailer featuring Bernthal and said it planned to support Breakpoint with new content "for years." Details on what you'll actually play in Breakpoint are a bit thin still, but Ubisoft also announced the game would see the return of AI-controlled teammates (originally they were planned to be cut) and a new community cool called Delta Company. It also teased some kind of tie-in with Terminator: Dark Fate--apparently, you'll be fighting Terminators in Breakpoint in the future as well.
Most importantly, however: Bernthal had an adorable dog with him on stage, adding to the list of lovable stars from this year's E3.
