When Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint was released back in 2019, it didn’t really receive the kind of attention that its developer and publisher probably wanted for it. Garnering only mediocre reviews, the game didn’t gain support and popularity.
Many of those who tried it out said that the online tactical shooter wasn’t very good technically, as it had a lot of glitches and bugs that no player would really want to deal with. Not only that, its storyline wasn’t anything special and didn’t hook you in, even with the help of Jon Bernthal, popularly known for his roles in The Walking Dead and Punisher.
That being said, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint has undergone many changes since then, thanks to the various updates released by Ubisoft. Luckily for those who haven’t played the game before, it’s currently available for free on PC until January 24. If this is the kind of game that you play and you want to try it out, head on over to either Ubisoft Connect or the Epic Games Store to get your hands on it.

Not only that, you will be able to transfer your progress over to the full game if you decide to purchase your own copy once the free trial ends. Doing so will give you a chance to keep on playing the game even after this event is done.
In line with this, the Standard, Gold, and Ultimate editions of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint are all on sale for discounted prices over at Ubisoft Connect. However, buying from The Epic Games store requires you to purchase its full price.
If you haven’t played Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint when it first got launched, it’s your typical online shooter which takes place in Auroa, a set of fictional islands situated somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.
You play as special forces colonel Anthony Perryman, who is tasked to explore and investigate the islands due to a series of strange events revolving around Skell Technology, a manufacturer of futuristic arms.
However, things don’t go well for Perryman, and he finds himself head-to-head with Cole Walker (played by Bernthal), a former Ghost Recon colonel, and his fellow ex-military soldiers. Even though the game’s plot was set up to be interesting, it ultimately left many players disappointed. In fact, some even claimed that the supposedly intimidating main antagonist could already be killed in the first mission alone.
In any case, Ubisoft has incorporated a bunch of changes via updates since last year, so we’re definitely intrigued to see if whether or not the limited-time free offer will bring about a surge of new players, or if they will also leave disappointed like the first batch.
While it can’t be denied that turning the tables around for a game that has been labeled as a disappointment isn’t easy, it’s definitely not impossible. Games like Sea of Thieves and Star Wars Battlefront 2 were able to drastically change for the better thanks to various updates, so there’s still hope left for Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
