Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will get a new Operation Motherland update next week, including new modes and more.
It’s a pretty substantial update (the game’s “biggest update so far” as teased earlier this year), so let’s dive in. The headline addition is a new Conquest Mode that acts as an alternative to the traditional story mode. The announcement post says the mode will have an emphasis on player actions having consequences on the island of Auroa. As you conquer regions on the island, the Outcast presence will also increase, with more patrols, checkpoints and more.
The update also marks the return of the Bodark faction to the game. They’re allied to the Sentinels and the Wolves and come in five flavours. These include Tacticians who can call for backup, Dreadnoughts with rocket launchers and Seekers with Optical Camouflage. It’s a good thing then, that you’ll be able to make use of Optical Camouflage too.
Elsewhere you can expect map changes to the island of Auroa, including new atmospheres to give certain regions an autumn/winter feel. You’ll notice more variety in weather too. Finally, there’s new weapon mastery and progression systems, with the maximum XP level cap raised to 99.
You can check out a video detailing everything you can expect in the Ghost Recon Breakpoint Operation Motherland update below. It’ll arrive in the game on November 2 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia and PC.
