Ubisoft is offering freebies to Ghost Recon fans, allowing gamers to claim a free copy of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, the Wildlands Fallen Ghosts DLC, and Ghost Recon Breakpoint Deep State Adventure. The news comes alongside the reveal of a new free-to-play shooter, expanding the Tom Clancy series once again.
The Ghost Recon series is one of Ubisoft’s most popular, beginning with 2001’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon. The series’ last entry came with 2019’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which was poorly received by players due to microtransactions, a lackluster story, and bugs. This year the franchise celebrates its 20th anniversary with the announcement of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Frontline, which is shaping up to be one of the biggest games in the series to date. Fans will be pitted against each other in huge-scale matches, with PvP gameplay focused on strategy. The game will feature different game modes for players to get stuck into, with registration now open for the Ghost Recon: Frontline closed beta.
Announcing the news in a Ubisoft video showcase, the company has confirmed that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon will be free to download and keep via Ubisoft Connect (PC). Meanwhile, the Wildlands Fallen Ghosts DLC will be available for free for PS4, Xbox, and PC. Finally, Ghost Recon Breakpoint Deep State Adventure will all be available free of charge across PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia. The downloads will be available beginning today, October 5 until October 11. The celebrations will continue next month with three free Breakpoint skins from across the Ghost Recon games. From November 2, fans can redeem three full gear sets: Scott Mitchell from Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Alicia Diaz from Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon 2, and John Kozak from Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier. Full details and download information can be found on the official Ubisoft website.

Those who haven’t yet played the original Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon won’t want to miss claiming their free PC copy of the game to experience the very foundations of the series. Unfortunately for console players, it seems Ubisoft has no plans to bring the freebie to PS4 or Xbox One, though the free DLC should go some way in appeasing the blow. It’s worth noting that players will need the Ghost Recon Breakpoint base game to play Deep State Adventure, while the Ghost Recon Wildlands base game is needed to play the Fallen Ghosts DLC.
The latest Tom Clancy video update honors the series roots while also offering a fresh look at the upcoming Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Frontline, giving fans a taste of what’s to come from the franchise next. The upcoming release has been in development for three years and is still in early development. It’s hoped the new Tom Clancy game will be able to bring something new to the free-to-play battle royale genre when it launches in the future.
