Josh Hawkins posted a new article, Ghost Recon Breakpoint update 3.10 patch notes
I've been thinking about getting this one, is it safe to say the teammate AI is fully functional, now?
A few days ago someone said it reminded them of an MMO, has anyone else had that impression? I love Wildlands, and I really don't like MMO's.... so I'm not sure if I should give it a shot or not.
It's the same cookie cutter they used from Wildlands but also from The Division a bit. I thought the game relied more on having coop friends than Wildlands did. Solo is possible but you really have to exploit the game more haha. Haven't played it with the AI updates. Just with my Wildlands Crew. Both games were great coop.
I can't really play multiplayer (schedule is to erratic), but the original was great with the AI teammates. I didn't buy this one at release because they didn't have support for teammates at first. \
If the MMO aspect is just farming specific types of resources to get unlocks, like the first game did, I'm ok with that.
They basically added a Hub element like from the Division.
AI teammates aren't great, not nearly as helpful as they could be in Wildlands. Gear Score is still really weird and the non gear score way of playing is also a little weird, too. There's some fun to be had, for sure, but yeah, it is kind of reminiscent of an MMO in some regards like looting and constantly resetting enemy locations, etc.
That's a bummer, I guess I'll hold off for the time being, then. I'm sure it will be on fire sale at some point and I'll pick it up then.
As wax pointed out below, there's a free weekend coming up that kicks off on Jan 21 if you want to try it out yourself and see how it stacks up to your expectations. It's not the worst game ever and definitely some good fun to be had if you enjoy the more recent Ghost Recon stuff.
I played it before the AI teammates were thing, so I can't comment on those. Honestly, though, I preferred Breakpoint over Wildlands because I didn't like the AI teammates hah.
Anyway, I think it's a good game. They recently added a ton of customization options to alter how the game plays. A lot of people hated the gear score mechanic in the launch version so they added the option to remove that and play it like Wildlands. Options to change the HUD, the difficulty, enemy level scaling…. tons of stuff like that. The MMO comparison isn't really anymore relevant to this game than most open-world style games. Yes, there's a hub area where you can see other players and group-up with them, but other than that it's exactly what you'd expect from a game like this.
Also apparently there's a free weekend coming from the 21st to the 25th. Might be the perfect time to check it out!
I'm replaying Wildlands right now and the teammates are a lot of fun, if a bit ridiculous. I like being able to plan out an assault (sort of) by having my guys take out certain people and repositioning. When it works it's a lot of fun.
It is kind of stupid when you see 3 of your guys run out in the middle of a road or something, right next to a patrolling enemy, and they don't get spotted.
