Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is an online tactical shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Paris and published by Ubisoft, but what you may not know is that the gear some of the characters use is actually inspired by a United States Navy SEAL and his military product company MATBOCK.
While most video games draw inspiration from regular military gear, Ghost Recon Breakpoint has gone above and beyond in actually using innovative products to give gamers a more realistic experience.
The game is set in an open world environment called Auroa, a fictional island chain in the Pacific Ocean. When you start the game, you take on the role of Lieutenant Colonel Anthony “Nomad” Perryman, a U.S. Special Operation Forces service member sent to the island to investigate a series of disturbances involving Skell Technology, a military contractor based on Auroa. From there, you battle and shoot it out!
Sean Matson, an actual decorated retired US Navy SEAL who served for over 13 years, invented the Tarsier Eclipse back in 2012. Now, the gear item can be bought with Ghost Coins in the game store as an add-on.
Speaking to us directly, Matson says, “It’s crazy to see a product that I co-developed with Zach Steinbock back in 2012, now available in a game.”
Kudos to Ubisoft Paris for adding in the extra time and enhancing the detail of this game with real-life products!
