Ubisoft’s E3 press conference saw actor Jon Bernthal introduce Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint with a very good dog. Not long after, community manager Laura Cordrey announced that Ghosts will not have to travel alone after all. Ghost Recon Breakpoint will bring back computer-controlled AI squadmates.
The news means that Ghosts who would rather operate solo or without online teammates will now be accompanied by computer-controlled AI.
It was revealed earlier this year that Breakpoint’s single-player campaign won’t include AI teammates. At the time, Ubisoft hoped that the removal of AI teammates would contribute to a sense of isolation and realism the company’s going for with the upcoming third-person shooter. The reversal was met with rapturous applause during the company’s presentation.
Ahead of its release date this fall, a Breakpoint beta will be held in September, giving you the chance to try the game early. One way to guarantee yourself access is to pre-order the game.
E3 2019 is still underway, so be sure to check the full schedule to see what presentations are left. And check back here for all the latest announcements and news updates.
