Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be the first major release as part of Ubisoft's Uplay+ subscription service, which offers a wide library of Ubisoft's back-catalog along with new releases. It has suffered a few technical hiccups upon launch. If you remain a subscriber as of October 1, you'll have access to the Ultimate Edition of Breakpoint.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint will launch on October 4 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It is forgoing Steam in favor of the Epic Games Store, as a business decision. You can check out the PC specs to assure your system is ready.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Beta Known Issues

Visual and Animation Glitches

  • Players may occasionally experience visual glitches when switching to night vision mode inside Samuel’s cabin.
  • Players may see a floating weapon during the Killed in Action screen.
  • Some vehicle models are not identical before and after being destroyed.
  • When stowing a downed teammate in a vehicle, the animation sometimes does not play, and your teammate is seen standing up in the vehicle.

Save

  • Players may in extremely rare cases lose their save data.

Audio

  • If a player starts a dialogue with an NPC during co-op, their teammates may hear parts of the dialogue even if they are far away.

Replication Issues

  • When in co-op, players might encounter replication issues such as seeing teammates performing actions that are different from what they are actually doing.
  • In a co-op session, when one player opens a chest, partners may not see the animation play in their session.
  • When in co-op, if a player is killed by friendly fire while on a ladder, the host of the session won't be able to revive them.
    • Workaround: Other players can revive them.
  • Sometimes after reviving a teammate, players can see this teammate still in down-state despite being healed.
    • Workaround: If this occurs, get healed by another player, or wait for the end of the timer and redeploy.
  • When in co-op, some turrets on vehicles might become invisible to one of the players in the session.
  • When in co-op, the vehicle may disappear while players are driving it.
  • When in co-op, enemies might not shoot or notice you if the session host does not have them in their view.

UI

  • When playing in languages other than English, players might encounter some symbols in the menus or missing information in settings.
  • Statistics displayed in-game may be inaccurate.
  • There won't be any description on the mission you've already completed on the objective board.
  • After choosing a preference for matchmaking situations, the text displayed will indicate that the choice is “No Preference.” This is a text issue, and the selection is taken into account.

Cutscene

  • When in co-op, players might see a pop-up appear during the cinematic with Fox if another player from their session skips it.

World

  • Players may rarely get stuck in some parts of the world.
    • Workaround: Fast travel.

Gameplay

Eagles Down Mission

  • If a player joins another who has almost finished the Eagles Down mission, that player will not be able to use the skill points they will earn at the end of the mission if they have not killed enemies to level up.
