Skell Technology, a AI drone technology firm, has been linked to numerous political assassinations, all of whom opposed their advancements. The Ghosts are subsequently dispatched to the fictional Auroa archipelago, the home of the company, which has mysteriously gone dark. When they get there, they find themselves not the hunters, but the hunted...by some of their own.
The game is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2019.
Tropes found in Breakpoint:
- Gatling Good: Gameplay videos show that the Ghosts' jeeps have miniguns attached to them.
- Sticks to the Back: The weapons used by the player stick to the back when not in use in a way that seems aggressively at odds with the gravity at times. One gameplay video shows two rifles slightly longer than the player's torso essentially hovering on either side of the player backpack, with nothing seeming to attach them to anything, and the player able to retrieve one into their hands and place the other back in a second.
- Tempting Fate: A Genre Blind guard in the gameplay reveal trailer outright proclaims, "Nothing ever happens around here," only for 1-2 to promptly slice his throat seconds later.
