Another installment in Ubisoft's legacy franchise is upon us, so what are we set to learn about Breakpoint at Gamescom?

In the days leading up to Gamescom 2019, we are all excited to see more information about the newest Ghost Recon installment. Although Ghost Recon Breakpoint may have been overshadowed by some other titles at E3 2019, there is no doubt Ubisoft's newest release could be one of the best games of the year. 

We are days away from the German game convention Gamescom 2019 and the only mode displayed at E3 2019 was the multiplayer; which has become a staple of the Ghost Recon series.

So what can we expect to hear out of Ubisoft next week? Let's explore the possibilities.

Multiplayer Reveal

Showcased during the Xbox teaser trailer for the upcoming Gamescom 2019 there will for sure be new information regarding Ghost Recon Breakpoint's Multiplayer. Opposed to the previous Ghost Recon title Wildlands, this time around Breakpoint's campaign can be played solely by yourself with other the need of multiple friends. Although Ubisoft has stated that players will still need a strong internet connection while playing, this is a step in the right direction.

With the looming October 4 release date, what can expect Breakpoint's multiplayer to be? We can expect it will be some version of Co-Op missions which will be dedicated for online play, which allows players to tackle unique missions either with their friends or just by matchmaking. We may also get a look at some brand new multiplayer modes, maybe they will try and replicate a Rainbox Six Seige style of online play or they will simply stick to their roots.

With an open beta already slated to launch on September 5, players can go here to sign up and register for the beta. There is not much time left for Ubisoft, a long storied franchise dating back to the early 2000's it is one of the most beloved games of all time. With a rocky reception of their recent titles Breakpoint offers a unique biome system along with an interesting campaign that should make players intrigued

NEW Confirmed News From Gamescom

Gamescom 2019 is well underway in Germany, during the first few days we got more in-depth looks at Gears of War 5 along with other titles that are set to release in the near future. We also got another look at the upcoming Ghost Recon title with an up-close and personal look at the PVP multiplayer action that players will be able to dive into on October 4. 

Revamped Class System!

One of the notable announcements showcased during the PVP trailer was the notion of four unique classes coming to Breakpoint. Assault, Sharpshooter, Panther, and Medic will all be available during the full release for players to try their hand at. From what we can tell the classes offer unique play styles are can be described as down below: 

  • Assault - Specializes in direct combat, perhaps the most generic class out of the four. 
  • Panther - Used to flank your enemy and get the upper hand on them. 
  • Sharpshooter - A master in long-range attacks.
  • Medic - Team healer.

Along with these unique classes, they also have different abilities that players can try out during their PVP gameplay. Also, each class has specific weapons and gear when you first dive into your multiplayer experience but with any title, you will unlock more gear as your progress. 

Carry Over Progression System

Unlike most multiplayer and single-player games, Ghost Recon Breakpoint is going to offer a unique feature that may end up being one of the best we have seen. As you progress in either multiplayer or the main campaign you will be able to simultaneously carry over all of your gear between the two modes. They also note that whatever you unlock in multiplayer you can then bring it over to the main story and vice versa. A cool new feature Ubisoft is trying there hand at, and it will be interesting to see how it goes.
