Ubisoft Deploys Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Patch to Improve Customization Options, Fix Major Bugs

The latest update for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, Title Update 1.0.3.1, is now live across the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One platforms. On consoles, however, the new patch reads as Version 1.05. It’s a pretty hefty update. On PS4 and Xbox One, the patch weighs roughly 11.3GB. The patch on PC clocks in at around 8.5GB. All in all, Breakpoint’s new update addresses myriad issues. Yet, additional customization options and bug fixes related to PVE and PVP constitute the stars of the show.

Notably, Version 1.05 will give players a chance to begin truly making their Ghost their own early in the experience. Out of the gate, customization options will now feature more robust possibilities. This is thanks to the addition of 40 default items that previously required players to either loot them or purchase with Skell Credits.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint’s new patch also addresses a slew of PVE and PVP issues. These fixes should alleviate mission-specific troubles, as well as those concerning odd behaviors by teammates and enemy players.

Update 1.05 serves as the second major patch Ubisoft has launched since promising to greatly improve upon the Breakpoint experience. Such a commitment to change came on the heels of a financial call on which CEO Yves Guillemot noted the publisher’s disappointment in Breakpoint’s critical and commercial performance. Thus far, it appears as though these changes are indeed improving the game.
