Splinter Cell Crosses Into Ghost Recon Breakpoint In New Update
The free update is scheduled for March 24 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but Ubisoft says coronavirus may change things.
Ubisoft has promised a mode that totally overhauls the beleaguered Ghost Recon Breakpoint for quite a while now, and it's scheduled to arrive tomorrow, according to a tweet from the publisher and a trailer (both of which are embedded below). However, Ubisoft also notes that the coronavirus outlook is still changing, and that there might be a chance that the patch doesn't come out as scheduled. [Update: We also now know the update will coincide with another Splinter Cell crossover event. We also have patch notes for the update, which is now live on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.]
"We are currently on track to release TU 2.0.0 on March 24," the tweet reads. "If anything changes due to the evolving situation with COVID-19, we will let you know as soon as possible."
This title update 2.0.0 will add the Ghost Experience to the game, the long-awaited "immersive mode" that allows players to customize how difficult or hardcore they want their experience to be, including removing regenerating health, messing with the HUD, and more. The update will also add the Engineer class to the game, as well as quality-of-life upgrades, like better gear sorting options.
Ubisoft isn't the only studio struggling with the coronavirus. On Tuesday, Mojang announced that the upcoming Minecraft Dungeons might be delayed due to the outbreak. E3 and a host of other gaming events were also cancelled because of the virus.
