A massive, free update
As was promised a couple of weeks back, the ‘Advanced Edition’ update for Into the Breach is now available. This update adds a wealth of new content to the game, and best of all, it’s completely free! You can get a refresher on what’s in this update below.
New Mechs and Weapons: Five new mech squads and nearly forty new weapons.
- Mist Eaters Squad: Flood the map with smoke to repair your own units and impede the enemy!
- The Thruster Mech’s damage is based on the distance it travels when attacking.
- The Control Mech lets you move any unit against their will!
- The Smog Mech can damage and shut down a whole area, while also healing allies with smoke!
New Challenges: More enemies, more bosses, and more mission objectives that add additional challenge and variety to any run.
New Pilot Abilities: The expanded roster includes four new pilots and triple the amount of skills any pilot can earn through promotions.
More Challenging Difficulty Mode: Unfair Mode
Alpha Vek will arrive earlier in the game and in much higher quantities, overwhelming your mechs. Can you hold back the tide? Threat mitigation, not annihilation, is your only option. Strategic losses are inevitable. Will your pilot’s life be worth a key objective? To balance things out, all Grid repair is doubled – making it easier to recover from a tough battle… if you can just hold on!
