After an initial closed beta only for pre-order customers, the next great Ubisoft title, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, will enter an open beta so anyone can play before launch. Whether you want to play on Xbox One or PC, this is all you need to know.
Content, dates and times of the open beta of Ghost Recon Breakpoint
The open world of Auroa is a great space to play inside, but naturally a beta won't show everything you'll get in the final game. The content is limited, but there is still much to explore and help you get a real idea of the game.
Eight regions of the map will be open to explore, including New Argyll and Infinity, with two main missions, a series of side missions and daily faction missions to play.
In addition, PvP mode, Ghost War, will be unlocked for multiplayer fans, with elimination and sabotage game modes available on three maps: PMC Camp, Skell Port and R&D Center.  So, when can you play
The beta version will take place from September 26 at 11 a.m. M. BST until September 29 at 3 p. M. BST. Preloads are now active on all platforms so you can make sure you're ready as soon as the servers are open. The image above is a complete summary of the times for your part of the world.
How to play Ghost Recon Breakpoint open beta on Xbox One
Entering the open beta on Xbox One couldn't be simpler. No registration or codes are required to redeem.
Simply download the beta version of the Microsoft Store on your Xbox One and you can enter and play as soon as the beta version is open. The download is just under 35 GB, so preloading is definitely recommended if you want to maximize your playing time.
How to play Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta on PC
On PC there are a couple of methods you can use to play open beta, from each of the places where you can also buy the game.
The first and most obvious is through the Ubisoft UPlay launcher. Make sure you have the client downloaded to your PC, and once you are logged in, getting the beta version is very easy.
You will find that the open beta version has its own tab in the UPlay launcher, ready to install. Simply click on it in the top bar and you will access the download page. The preload for UPlay was activated at the same time as the console versions, which again gives you a couple of days for it to be ready for the servers to start working.
According to the previous Ubisoft image, people who want to play using the Epic Games Store will also be able to participate, although as it currently stands, there seems to be no link to download the beta from there despite the preload time that has passed . Since you must link Epic and UPlay anyway, your best option is to go directly through UPlay.
If you wonder if your PC can play Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the good news is that the minimum and recommended specifications are not. It is not particularly excessive. A Core i7 or Ryzen 5 paired with a GTX 1060 or RX 480 is a fairly low bar for recommended specifications.
If you want to play at high resolution and ultra graphics, for 4K, for example, you will need a seventh Gen Core i7 or Ryzen 7 2700X paired with a Radeon VII or an NVIDIA RTX 2080. Therefore, although most can probably play , you will still need considerable power to advance to higher resolutions and details.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be released on October 4
Ghost Recon Breakpoint and its huge open world is emerging as one of the most exciting games before the holidays. The standard edition will launch on Xbox, PC and PS4 on October 4, with an early access period of three days before for people jumping to Gold or Ultimate editions.
