Ubisoft details a roadmap of technical improvements and content updates for troubled online shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
It’s fair to say that the launch of Ghost Recon Breakpoint has not been as smooth and critically well-received as Ubisoft would like. However, it’s also fair to say that the publishing giant is no stranger to nurturing games out of a rough start. Players of Rainbow Six Seige, For Honor, and The Division can all attest Ubisoft’s commitment fixing broken games.
Hopefully, that pattern will repeat itself with Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The game’s chart success certainly indicates a solid player base and the brand is too important for the game to be dropped as quickly as EA washed its hands of Anthem.
In a new blog post, the Ghost Recon Breakpoint development team speak about their conversations with the game’s community and detail a roadmap of improvements.
The game’s technical issues are the first to be addressed, starting with Title Update 1.0.3 in mid-November. This will include fixes for drone deployment, fire rates and NVGs blocking crosshairs, among other bugs. A second update will drop at the end of the month with an additional range of tweaks and technical updates.
Improvements to follow include the addition of AI teammates – which were first announced back at E3 – and adjustments to the in-game economy.
Most intriguing is the promise of a “radical and immersive version of Ghost Recon Breakpoint.” It’s unclear what this means but it appears to be an attempt to balance the game’s survival-oriented design with the playing community’s demand for quick tactical thrills. The loot system is also noted as one area that will change.
It’s also confirmed that the game’s first-ever raid, Project Titan, will arrive in early December. The Terminator Live event will follow mid-month.
In summary, it’s good to see Ubisoft publicly making the right noises. The company has also pushed back the release of other upcoming games to allow for more polish and Ghost Recon players will shortly receive a Community Survey to provide feedback on the game’s future direction. Maybe Bethesda could learn a thing or two?
