Ubisoft has announced that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will be free to play across PC, PS4 and Xbox One this weekend. You can redeem the game on Uplay here, along with a free copy of Child of Light which Ubisoft is giving away.
From 26th to 29th March, join the fight and become a Ghost, an Elite US Special Operations Unit stranded behind enemy lines. Fight against the Wolves, ex-brother-in-arms gone rogue, on the island of Auroa. During this Free Weekend, you can discover all the new content of the game and play the first mission of the Deep State Adventure alongside Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell!
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint had a…disappointing launch, to put it mildly. The game underperformed so badly that it forced Ubisoft to delay all of its 2020 releases for more polish. When we played the game before release, we thought the final release wouldn’t have as many bugs as the demo did. But, as you can glean from our review of Breakpoint, it’s pretty clear Ubisoft screwed up big time with this one. The game has since seen many updates, with the last one adding Vulkan API support.
Hopefully, the developer has learned its lessons since. With enough updates and more free-to-play sessions like these, Ubisoft just might turn the tables around as they did with Rainbow Six Siege.
