The next Ghost Recon game, Breakpoint, is almost here. The Tom Clancy game launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 4. Ahead of that, Ubisoft has detailed a number of important launch details covering pre-loading, early access, file sizes, server start times, and more.
Early Access (Digital):
Everyone who pre-ordered Breakpoint or buys the Gold Edition of the game can start playing on October 1, which is three days before the public release on October 4.
Xbox One — Pre-loading in all regions is available now, for all versions of the game.
PS4 — Pre-loading begins from midnight local time on September 29 for Gold Edition. Pre-loading for the Standard version starts midnight local time on October 1.
Uplay PC — Pre-loading is available now.
Epic Games Store — Pre-loading is available now.
File Sizes (Digital):
Xbox One: Pre-load 40.1GB; Day 1 patch 13.5 GB
PS4: Pre-loading 47.3GB; Day 1 patch 10 GB
Uplay PC + Epic Games Store: Pre-load 41.36GB; no Day 1 patch because pre-load includes it
Those who download Breakpoint on PS4 or Xbox One after launch will instead see a single download size that is larger as it combines the pre-load file size and the Day 1 patch. Another note to be aware of is those who buy a physical copy of Breakpoint must download the Day 1 patch to start playing.
Server Start Times:
Online servers go live September 30 at 11 AM UTC. Take a look at the chart above to find out when the game’s servers go live in your part of the world.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint’s release on October 4 is just the beginning for the military shooter. Ubisoft is planning to support the game for a long time after release with lots of new content, including the franchise’s first raid and much more.
