The Terminator is being added to Ghost Recon: Breakpoint this week

In what seems the least timely tie-in for a long while cinema’s favourite cyborg is being added to Ghost Recon: Breakpoint on Wednesday.

After the failure of Dark Fate at cinemas last year, you’d assume that’s probably the last anyone’s going to hear of The Terminator in terms of big budget movies.

But you can’t keep a good 80s action icon down and Terminator contemporaries such as the Predator and Alien have been doing the rounds as extra DLC characters for years now, like aging actors turning up at a sci-fi convention to sign posters.

And, just like Predator with Ghost Recon: Wildlands, the Terminator is going to appear in follow-up Breakpoint for a new live event.

Prior to Dark Fate, the Terminator turned up in both Gears 5 and Mortal Kombat 11, with the visage of Arnie as he is now but not his real voice.

It’s not clear how it’ll be portrayed in Ghost Recon though as the teaser above doesn’t show the character, or indeed give any indication of how the mode will work.

You won’t have long to wait and find out though as the mode goes live on Wednesday, 29 February, as the last major stop on the Episode 1 roadmap.

As with the Predator before it, there is some small connection between the Terminator and Breakpoint, in that a lot of its enemies are drones – the biggest ones looking a lot like the HK tanks from the films, so it’s likely it was always an influence.

What happens after Episode 1 is largely a mystery, as the additions so far don’t seem to have done much to repair Breakpoint’s poor reputation. Computer-controlled teammates are still being promised at some point though, so Ubisoft aren’t finished with the game yet.

They’ll be back, you might even say.
