Ubisoft has revealed that the open beta for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will begin later this month, lasting just a few days. It'll apparently feature content that wasn't part of the closed beta which ran earlier this month.
Speaking of which, the general reaction to the closed beta has been mixed. Many longtime fans of Ghost Recon aren't happy that the game's introducing more light role-playing elements, such as levelled loot. We thought it was fun enough, but we're hoping that the finished release runs a lot better on PlayStation 4 when it launches in early October.
Anyway, this upcoming open beta will be available to download from the PlayStation Store on the 26th September, and it ends on the 29th September. "Players will be able to discover 3 extra main story missions, allowing them to delve deeper in the game’s storyline, 2 new regions (called New Argyll and Infinity) in addition to the 4 regions already unveiled during Closed Beta, and play intense competitive Elimination matches with their friends in Breakpoint’s PvP mode," reads the press release.

I'll give it another crack. I've still got the closed beta installed. Will it run the open beta or do I need to install again?
I liked the controls better than Wildlands, but the always online world I don't agree with. Might rent it through Gamefly, since obviously this game won't last forever.
I played the closed beta and while it was much improved from the earlier alpha/beta I played, it was enough to know I'll skip it. I got a reasonable amount of entertainment from playing but I'm one of those who think adding a loot system and enemy levels isn't a good idea. It makes it too similar to The Division and they should have made this a more realistic and distinctive experience.
Also I think the vehicle handling is still atrocious.
@ApostateMage Might just be a case of updating the beta you already have — that's how a lot of these things tend to work these days, I've noticed.
Unless it's a different build, in which case it might be an entirely different application.
Played the closed beta and surprisingly enjoyed it. I would like to see more before i decide whether to buy it or not so I'm glad they doing open beta. Anyone knows if progression carries over? I really don't want to restart from beginning
In the recent beta I experienced horrible low frames in vehicles. Some of the worst I’ve seen.
That was reason enough for me to pass on a day 1 purchase.
tried the beta of wildlands and didn't like it at all, so i'll pass on breakpoint. GR: Future Soldier on PS3 was much better - i think that either playing alone with AI, or with three friends in co-op is much better suited to the structured mission setup of future solder. wildlands had too much of a far cry feel for me, and from what i've read, breakpoint is bleeding that into the division territory - it's why i've stopped buying ubisoft games.. they have an idea for one franchise, and suddenly it's crowbarred into them all.
Was in the original technical test and the closed beta. I've seen enough. Unless the unlikely happens and they've completely done away with the Gear Score and Looter Shooter elements, I'll be passing on this.
@Brasilkilla From beta to beta? It's possible but I wouldn't bet on it.
It just made me want to play The Division 2.
@Brasilkilla Progress didn't carry over from the technical test to the closed beta, so I doubt it will carry over to the open beta. It certainly won't carry over from the beta to the full game.
Looks like a good co-op shooter, had a blast playing Wildlands online with my nephew.
I do feel January would be a better release date, October is going to be all about Modern Warfare for shooter fans.
I'm so curious about this game but I've heard mostly bad things. Watched a lot of game play myself and the game looks like it needs more time. I'll play the beta since it's free.
