Ubisoft has today confirmed that players will only be able to play Ghost Recon Breakpoint online, and losing your internet connection will result in you dropping out from the Breakpoint servers. Online only games have sparked controversy in the past, particularly for Australians who are known to have less than desirable internet connections, however Ubisoft is pushing forward with their games requiring a constant online connection as we saw in other Tom Clancy games The Division 2 earlier this year, and hugely competitive esports game Rainbow Six Siege.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint was officially announced just the other day via a livestream, and you can check out our coverage of that here.

In a tweet response to a fan question asking if Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be playable online, the official Ghost Recon Twitter account states it will require an active internet connection. Check out the tweet below:

We have also learnt that unlike its predecessor Wildlands, Ghost Recon Breakpoint will not have AI co-op players, making the game quite difficult if you are going to go it alone. Matchmaking has been an on-going issue in The Division 2 for Australians, with Ubisoft looking at ways to add more local oceanic servers to help players find a game, so we’re interested to see how popular Ghost Recon Breakpoint online will be down under, and whether it will be a more difficult game in regions that have lower populations.

Rocket Chainsaw gave Ghost Recon Wildlands 3 stars at launch, stating that it was “is not a bad game, but it’s far from perfect. With the two major gameplay flaws we mentioned, it’s unjustifiable to score it any higher than what we have.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint will launch on October 4, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms. For more information, head to the official Ghost Recon Breakpoint website.
