Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Ubisoft is unlocking the entirety of Ghost Recon Breakpoint for free this weekend.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the latest in the Tom Clancy series is available to play for free this weekend. PC, PlayStation, and Stadia players can download the game now, and access all of its content until May 31 at 18:00 BST. Sadly the free trial will not be available for Xbox players.

Breakpoint was released back in 2019 to mixed reviews, following the relatively well-received Ghost Recon Wildlands. The game advertised an online tactical-shooter experience, where you and up to three others can sneak their way through the environmentally diverse Auroa. The game was a commercial disappointment for Ubisoft, receiving criticism for its unfinished state and lack of varied content.


As is the case with many modern Ubisoft titles, however, Breakpoint has received a steady flow of post-launch support. The most recent, Amber Sky, added characters from Rainbow Six Siege into the game.

With the full game accessible this weekend, players will be able to blast their way through the game’s story, additional content and possibly even squeeze in one of its raids. And, if playing over the weekend wasn’t enough, progression can be carried over if the game is purchased. Additionally, any players that do buy the game will receive a massive 87% off.

While Ghost Recon Breakpoint may not be the best-reviewed game, but with a plethora of content to sift through and an appealing non-existent price point, it offers up a potentially fun way to gear up with friends in a new expansive and hostile world. Because who doesn’t like to shoot up bad guys with friends… for free.


Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available for free across PlayStation consoles, Stadia, and PC until 18:00 BST, May 31, 2021.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
