A Terminator is joining Ghost Recon: Breakpoint this week

Some kind of Terminator crossover event is happening in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint this week, starting January 29. The details are fairly slim on the ground, but the trailer above confirms with typical coyness that a Terminator live event is definitely upon us.

If history is any indication, it's likely the Terminator live event will resemble the Predator live event (opens in new tab)which hit Ghost Recon: Wildlands in late 2017. That limited event had players hunt the Predator - who was reportedly a bastard to take down - either solo or with friends.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint was a bit of a stinker at launch, with our review (opens in new tab) citing "poorly stapled-on mechanics and a general lack of polish". Updates may fix that: there's a big one rolling out late January which improves AI behavior (for example, they won't keep rushing the player if a bunch of their allies have been killed in the same area). Oh, and "enemies will no longer shout in pain after being shot in the head".

There's a vague roadmap too: a "new immersive experience" drops in February, and 'Episode 2' starts at the end of March. You can hear it all straight from Ubisoft's mouth here (opens in new tab).
