What''s actually included in this release? Thousands of things (see above). There are 40 new weapons, five new mech squads, new bosses, new enemies, new music, new mission objectives, and an Unfair difficulty mode, which sounds downright ominous.

If you have never played the game, here''s Riley''s fantastic review of the game from 2018:
Into the Breach requires thinking through your actions, not just one turn or round, but throughout the whole game. It allows you see into the present, knowing what each enemy will do. But I also didnt know what I would do to mess things up, what errors Id make, and why Id disregard it. Despite these, these methods were never quite erased the reminder of my mistakes.
And it''s a game that completely eliminated my top of 2018 list.
Into the Breach, a puzzle game with turn-based tactical trappings, has the most agonising end turn button in all video games. Its a delight how it can distill both genres down to their own uniqueness, with narrative and rewards that encourage endless replays.
