Ubisoft has just released the first details regarding its newest Ghost Recon title, and it looks to be a direct continuation of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.

The new title is called Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and instead of fighting against drug cartels and corrupt government paramilitaries, this title sees you face off against the greatest foes you have yet to face: your own former comrades, the ex-Ghosts now known as Wolves. Check out the trailer below to see it all go to hell for you and your own Ghost team.

Based on the trailer, it looks like you’ll be back in the shoes of Nomad, your lead operator for Wildlands, as you lead a mission gone horribly wrong in a secluded place in the Pacific Ocean called Auroa, home to Silicon Valley company Skell Technology. The teases and previous reveals were all related, it seems, as it looks like both Auroa and Skell have been invaded by Cole D. Walker, an ex-Ghost in charge of the Wolves. Cole D. Walker is played by Jon Bernthal, who made his first appearance in the series during the last update for Wildlands called Operation Oracle. It’s now clear that that operation serves as a prelude to a much bigger conflict, one that will test you and your teammates' resolves as Ghost operators.

It also looks like Ubisoft is putting a much bigger emphasis on survival, as you will be stuck in the island of Auroa against operatives on par with your own Ghost training, while minimally equipped and outgunned. This is where stealth comes into much bigger focus, and you can see some of the changes made in gameplay in the video below.

Stamina bars, debilitating injuries that require attention, crafting, resource management, and a very deep night-and-day and weather cycle system – these are just some of the new additions to Breakpoint that will surely up the ante for those who felt like Wildlands was a walk in the park. However, like Wildlands, you can choose to play solo or in a four-person co-operative mode. You would be in for a surprise, though, to find new teammates in the mix, suggesting the deaths of some of your own former squad in Wildlands.

Ubisoft has confirmed in their live stream that the title will follow a similar content release plan as Wildlands, with additional content being released in yearly season passes. It will also feature something very new and exciting for those that will opt into the co-operative mode: raids, which are said to be the utmost endgame content.

In any case, we will get to hear more about Breakpoint soon at E3, where Ubisoft will hold their conference on June 10.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is scheduled for release on October 4, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
