The Ghost Recon Breakpoint closed beta has kicked off and we have all the details.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint‘s first public beta is now live for players on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. This is not an open beta, but it’s relatively easy to get in before it ends on September 9, depending on your platform.

How to get into the Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta

Although the beta isn’t open, anyone who pre-orders the full game on PC, PS4 or Xbox One is guaranteed access. Those who signed up for Uplay Plus, Ubisoft’s PC subscription service, are also invited.

Finally, if you managed to register when beta sign-ups first began, you have a chance at getting an invite. Ubisoft may decide to open up the beta to more players over the weekend, or host an open beta in the following weeks, but so far, neither have been confirmed.

Those who took part in previous tech tests are automatically invited to the beta.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta schedule and start times

The Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta went live earlier this morning on all platforms simultaneously. Servers are now online, and will remain that way until 3am PT, 6am ET, 11am BST on Monday, September 9.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta download

If you managed to pre-load the Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta, you may already be playing it. For those who didn’t, the download is available now on all platforms, coming in at roughly 32GB on PC and 27GB on PS4 and Xbox One.

This is a fairly large download due to the amount of content in the beta (see below).

Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta content

You can expect a hefty chunk of content in the Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta. Everything can be played solo or with three other players in co-op. Four of Breakpoint’s map regions (Smuggler Coves, Mount Hodgson, Sinking Country, Fen Bog) will be available to explore.

You’ll also have access to two story missions, various side missions, and eight faction missions that rotate every day of the beta.

Throughout the four regions, you’ll encounter three of the game’s big drone bosses at designated drone areas. This includes the Murmurs drone swarm, the Aamons land drone, and the big Behemoth tank. If you plan to visit any of these locations, expect a challenging fight.
