With its approachable gameplay and chess-like complexity, Into the Breach has been an incredible strategy choice for PC and Switch owners. With the upcoming Premium Edition expansion, new content is infused into the already playable Mech Tactics game. Even better, the mobile version landed on the same day, and the new DLC was fixed from the start.
Subset Games, which also developed a Space Odyssey Rogue-lite FTL, will release a premium version on July 19. It contains new units, weapons, pilots, abilities and more. For advanced players, there will be a more challenging difficulty mode to deal with, as well as new bosses and enemies to learn how to defeat effectively. Here are some highlights from the Into the Breach Premium Edition update:
- Five new mech squads
- Nearly 40 new weapons
- Four new pilots and new pilot capabilities
- New enemies, bosses and missions
- More challenging difficulty mode
- seven new languages
- New music by Ben Prunty
Into the Breach will also debut on its mobile devices on July 19, but these versions will only be available to Netflix subscribers. Subset Games promises no ads or in-app purchases for mobile apps. You just need to be a Netflix subscriber to access it, and the game is available for free on your iOS and Android devices. These versions include a revised touch interface designed to work better on smaller screens like phones.
For those who like to collect, Into the Breach will have a Switch physical version provided by Fangamer. Pre-orders are live now, and boxed copies will be released later this year. This tactile copy of Into the Breach will include the premium content listed above, but will also come with other physical items such as posters, cover box art, instruction manuals and stickers.
