AI teammates are coming to Ghost Recon Breakpoint along with a host of other improvements, updates, and a new live event, Resistance. Title Update 2.0.1, coming July 15, will introduce a menu option enabling you to play with a full team of AI Ghosts at your side to follow your orders, execute sync shots, and potentially revive you when things get hairy. AI teammates can be fully customized, both in terms of physical attributes and gear, as well as their main weapon, which affects how they tackle enemy forces.
They may prove helpful in Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s Resistance live event, which starts July 16. The Ghosts will undertake a series of missions to help the Outcasts launch a counterattack by assaulting Sentinel outposts and convoys. Completing these missions before the end of the live event on July 29 can get you up to 14 exclusive rewards, all the while affecting the presence of Rebels in Auroa. And if PvP is more your speed, Ghost War is also getting an update that adds a new mode, customization items, and other improvements based on community feedback.
All of this is coming in a free update for current Ghost Recon Breakpoint players, and newcomers will have an opportunity to try them out for free as well during the upcoming free weekend. From July 16-19, Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be free to try on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. All progress made during the free weekend will transfer over to the full game if purchased. The game will also be discounted on the Ubisoft Store for a limited time.
