Best Buy offers My Best Buy Members Ghost Recon Breakpoint for $49.99, or $39.99 for GCU members plus $10 reward. This may have been a match to the Amazon deal, but I'm not sure who did what first and you don't have to be a Prime member. At effectively $30 after rewards, this will likely beat any BF deal next month.

Sadly my GCU ran out last week. Now I’m sad.

Thanks OP.  I pre-ordered and enjoyed Wildlands, but I'm gonna pass on this game.  Mainly because I have Game Pass so I'm not lacking for games to play.  Secondly, the game doesn't scream "must play on day one" to me.  It's basically Wildlands with gear leveling similar to The Division.  But definitely a good deal for fans.

So, I pre-ordered two weeks ago right before my GCU expired. Do you think they'll auto-adjust the price or is this something I'm likely to have to call or do online chat to resolve? 

 

Would seem pretty bogus to not update the price for me since the order has already been placed.

Funny. Amazon is matching Walmart *and* Best Buy.
Best Buy then matches amazon...

Not a bad deal ... might be cheaper on BF, but most likely $45. I liked the Beta, the auto-killing mini drones were super annoying but I heard that’s a feature that won’t be used as much in the actual game (maybe keeping certain areas off limits for story reasons, but not as prevalent). Will probably bite, since my GCU dies just before BF anyway.

I told myself I wouldn't buy this game right away, but for this price I just pre-ordered lol.

I'm in the same situation.  Contacted Best Buy CS via online chat and they told me, I'd have to cancel my current order and re-order to get the new lower price.  I would lose my GCU discount because mine has expired.

After playing the beta I wouldn't waste anymore of my time if the game was free. This is not Ghost Recon.

I never liked Ghost Recon games, until Wildlands... and now Breakpoint. I tried and wanted to like The Division 1, but just couldn't. LOVED The Division 2 however.

 

Yeah I saw the monetization crap, but seeing what it is i'm not interested in any of it. Camo? unless certain camo's allow you to hide better than another camo, it's just cosmetic. Same with facepaint and tattoo's. Once I leave the character creation screen I rarely ever bother with the looks of my character anyway.

The guns + mods etc, yeah thats BS but if you can get them in game and the store just allows you to spend RL money to get them early... whatever, i'm not going to play it competitively. 99% of my playtime in it will be solo.

 

The micro transactions in games now is pure BS, (and getting worse) but I have yet to buy anything in any game outside of actual DLC.

If you're an Elite or Elite plus number I'd try calling the dedicated CS line. I did and they refunded me $8.60 on the order, which means I'll get the game for $39.99 plus $10 rewards points. I just told them the price should be adjusted because it changed since I placed the order, they said usually the system updates those orders.

Thanks OP. Got it for 5 bucks and change after some reward certs. Glad there is a 3 week window until Outer Worlds so I can catch up on all these games I've been buying.

The beta was not good at all. Seemed to be the consensus. As the person above said, this didn't feel like a ghost recon at all. It felt like everything took a step back from wildlands.

Wasn't going to pick it up at launch, but for $30 ($50 - 20% gcu - $10 cert from BL3) and $10 back for pre-ordering, it seems worth it. While this doesn't have the same feel as Wildlands, it still looks like fun from the videos I've seen of those who already got the gold/ultimate editions.

 

Now without the $10 drop, 20% gcu, and $10 back for pre-ordering (negating the $10 cert spent), I would have just waited for the inevitable Ubisoft price drop. Plus I'm still so deep into BL3 that I won't be touching this one for a while. Straight up $30 day one though... that's nice.

Yeah, it's... Holy cow, I was not into Wildlands but this sucks total ass.

My GCU runs out in NOV, but I feel I should buy this and Grid, and maybe NFS just to save the 20% and get the extra $10 because they probably wont drop until after christmas or black friday but not this low.

honestly this and NFS will probably be in the $25 to $29 range on black friday. unless the new NFS gets amazing reviews it will struggle to sell because EA has completely ruined the franchise.

I guess I'll have to check reviews before picking it up ha. I missed out on Wildlands; just didn't get around to it and the gold code expired which really pissed me off. Got into D2 late and had fun for a few weeks with it before seeing the light. It was a fun, good couple weeks but urban sprawls are just too boring and got repetitive.

 

I probably should have tried the beta but WoW classic man, fml. . .

Yeah, this is a good deal if you have GCU and want it at launch, but i just read this preview and it doesn't sound worth your time or money: https://www.destruct...nt-568557.phtml

Just reading some of that article... he obviously skipped the intro cinematic if he can’t figure out why you are even going to the island, and oh.. the early missions even has more explanation of the situation.

Bugs are bugs though, seems like they are all co-op?

Surprised we didn’t get a wildlands fire sale on any of the digital store sites. Going to pass on this at launch, all the initial single player impressions doesn’t seem so hot. I can put the gift card to Fire Emblem instead.

Thanks OP.  Canceled original preorder and just reordered since I refuse to chat with BB customer service who almost never know how GCU works.

 

Wildlands was a game my son and I both enjoyed playing together...hope this is the same.

None

Downloaded the beta and luckily I didn’t play that either. From the videos I have watched this game is a pile. As a gamer who owns every single Ghost Recon game, this isn’t Ghost Recon. The monetization alone is a fucking joke.

It isn't. It is a Division clone. If you liked that game then you'll like this one. If you really enjoyed Wildlands then you probably won't like this. there is nothing remotely Wildlands like about this game. It is a Ghost Recon game in name alone.

The looting weapons is just like Division and so is the social space.

The best was to describe this game is Division in the woods or a $60 stand alone expansion pack.
