– ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW –

A patch for the game has been released, title update 4.1.0, here are the ridiculously huge patch notes:

4.1.0 UPDATE HIGHLIGHTS

PATCH SIZE

This title update will be released in a repackaged format, which may improve general in-game performance for some users. This causes a heavier patch but will allow lighter updates in the future. It will also reduce disk space occupied by Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

The size of the patch depends on your platform, region, and preferred language.

Patch size:

  • PC: ~50,65 GB
  • Xbox Series X|S / Xbox One: ~48,5 GB
  • PlayStation®5 system / PlayStation®4 system: ~45,5.GB

CONQUEST MODE

Conquest mode is a new alternative mode to the classic GRB story mode. It is accessible via the objective board or the TacMap, right after the onboarding portion of the story mode. Players must conquer the island region by region and free Auroa from the clutches of the Bodarks with the help of the Outcasts and Karen Bowman.

NEW ENEMIES

Along with four new Bodark lieutenants, the Conquest mode will feature five new Bodark archetypes:

  • Tactician (radio operator)
  • Oppressor (armoured breacher)
  • Dreadnought (armoured rocket gunner)
  • Trooper (rifleman)
  • Seeker (rifleman using Optical Camo)

NEW GAMEPLAY ELEMENTS

  • Experience player agency while you reclaim Auroa:
    • Play more than 60 short missions to dismantle the Bodark influence.
    • Complete the missions in any order to conquer the 11 regions of Auroa.
    • Notice the impact of your missions on Auroa, as the rebel presence will increase, weakening the Bodarks.
  • The Conquest mode marks the return of the Optical Camo, more advanced than ever:
    • The Optical Camo is now a permanent item of the item wheel.
    • It allows you to be invisible to the enemies up to a certain distance.
    • Its use is time-limited by a gauge that depletes according to your actions and movement.
    • In Conquest mode, you will uncover camo chests giving you points to improve your Optical Camo’s efficiency in many ways:
      • battery duration
      • depletion rate
      • reloading rate
      • efficiency against detection systems
    • Unlock special skills by reaching one of the Optical Camo’s three levels of progression: tested, effective, and combat ready. You will gain access to battery reload overnight, water resistance, and damage control.
    • The Optical Camo can also be used without its upgrades in the regular story mode of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
  • Enjoy more depth to the progression system:
    • The maximum XP level up was increased from 30 to 99.
    • A weapon mastery system was introduced, allowing you to use your extra skill points to improve the characteristics of specific weapon categories that fit your playstyle.
  • Weather and ambiance enhancements
    • Five new exclusive ambiances to experience along the Conquest mode missions.
    • Weather micro-changes: clearer and denser clouds, more radiosity, frequent rain in the marshes, modified distance and density of fog, and improved impact of the sun on the environment.
    • Environment effects revamp: insects, fumes, floating grasses, and flying birds.
    • Weather scenarios will not repeat from a day to another, especially after bivouac breaks.
  • The Conquest mode is also a multiplayer experience. However, it works differently from story mode. The co-op model is now host-centric, meaning the available activities will depend on the host progress; but all players will benefit from the progress made together.

 

QUALITY OF LIFE IMPROVEMENTS

  • Base Jump:
    • Fall damage now applies normally if you jump and touch the ground without deploying the parachute, instead of instantly killing the main character.
    • Distance and height conditions to trigger base jump have been lowered to allow more base jump opportunities.
    • Jumping is now triggered by holding A (or X) when heading to a cliff instead of pressing A at the right time.
  • Sliding:
    • Sliding was tweaked to trigger less often.
    • In moderate slopes, sliding is only triggered if the player sprints.
    • It takes slightly longer for sliding to trigger when conditions are met.
  • CQC:
    • Slope-specific CQC animations have been tweaked to happen at more slope angles and should happen more frequently.
  • Laser:
    • Some lasers now feature an IR Illuminator, activated when aiming, that will be visible only when wearing NVGs.
    • The IR Illuminator doesn’t impact NPC detection.
  • Weapon Sounds Rework:
    • M4A1, G28, and TAC50 unsilenced and silenced firing sounds have been modified.

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of fixes!

    On another note. Just went to PS store to see if any mention of trial and the base game was showing as purchased and allowed me to download. Whether in preparation for the trial time will tell, but could be a mistake and currently giving away for free.
