Much like FTL that came before it, Into the Breach launched as a short yet highly satisfying experience. Even if the Subset Games team never added anything else to it and simply moved onto their next game, Into the Breach would've still been remembered fondly due to how easy it is to pick up and how deliciously tricky it can get towards the end.

So you can imagine my surprise when over four years after its original launch Into the Breach just suddenly got a chunky new update! The Advanced Edition brings with it a whole host of new gameplay options thanks to 5 new squads, 4 new pilots and 39 new weapons & equipment, along with 10 new enemies and 10 new boss battles.

The good news doesn't end there, however, as The Advanced Edition has also added 12 new missions and 3 new bonus mission goals, new random pilot abilities, and an even more brutally difficult setting - Unfair Mode. Best of all? The whole update is entirely free!

What all of this looks like in action, that you can find out through the trailer below. Have a peek, it's a short but sweet one:

You can learn more about all of the new additions, as well as Into the Breach itself, over at Steam. Have fun with the new stuff, and just remember, losing horribly is merely a part of the learning process!
