Players eager to get stuck into upcoming mercenary-fest Ghost Recon Breakpoint will get the opportunity to do so in a little over a week’s time. Ubisoft has announced that an open beta for the multiplayer shooter will go live on PS4, PC and Xbox One between Thursday, September 26 and Monday, September 30.

Ubisoft also took the opportunity to drop an all-new live-action trailer for the game. The five-minute preview was produced by Los Angeles studio Minted Content and directed by none other than David Leitch, who was behind the lens for Hobbs and Shaw, Atomic Blonde, and R-rated comic book movie Deadpool 2.

The video feature hip-hop superstar Lil Wayne and is a key part of Breakpoint’s promotion. The ad is expected to air during prime-time commercial segments on shows like Thursday Night Football and WWE SmackDown, hoping to get hype fires stoked ahead of the game’s official release. As expected for a Leitch joint, the ad features a lot of casually-stylised gun violence and more than a little cursing.
