Ubisoft have released another patch for their tactical shooter Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and it's a huge one. It weights 10.6 GB on PlayStation 4 and it packs a ton of bug fixes and improvements.

It's safe to say that Ghost Recon: Breakpoint wasn't received well and Ubisoft already had to make a couple of tweaks, removing some of the "time savers" from the in-game store after player backlash. Additionally, the game suffers from a lot of bugs and overall it feels unpolished and rushed but Ubisoft is committed to fixing the issues and making it better and more enjoyable experience to players.

That's why they've released a brand new patch for the game. The title update 1.0.2 is huge and it's live right now on all platforms. The update is largest on PlayStation 4 (10.6 GB) while it's a bit smaller on Xbox One (7.5 GB) and Uplay and Epic Games Store on PC (5.4 GB).

The update brings the first round of adjustments, improvements, and fixes that Ubisoft has been working on in the last couple of weeks. There aren't any major changes, but a lot of small, annoying issues have been fixed, which is always welcomed.

Here are some of the general bug fixes, improvements and tweaks.

  • Various tweaks made to the cover system.
