SAN FRANCISCO — March 29, 2017 — Today, Ubisoft® announced Tom Clancy’s ShadowBreak, the first brand in the Tom Clancy’s video game series to be developed specifically for mobile devices. Developed by Ubisoft Halifax, Tom Clancy’s ShadowBreak is a real-time multiplayer sniper shooter that features fast-paced action, tactical decision-making, international arenas and real-world weapons.
True to the series’ DNA, Tom Clancy’s ShadowBreak imagines a near-future scenario where disparate criminal and radical factions, known as Shadow Nations, pose a new threat to global stability. Seizing the territory of sovereign countries through a coordinated series of attacks, these Shadow Nations have taken entire populations hostage overnight. To combat this sudden threat, elite marksmen trained in unorthodox warfare and counter-insurgency are granted command of a squad of disavowed military specialists, an initiative now known as ShadowBreak.
Players assume the role of elite snipers commanding a squad in real-time PvP combat, deploy their troops and provide overwatch to assault the opponent’s bases. Smart target selection, troop synergy and tactical execution make the difference between victory and defeat.
Tom Clancy’s ShadowBreak will be available worldwide on iOS and Android devices later this year.
