Breach & Clear: DEADline, follow-up to to the turn-based tactics game, will be sending you to fight monsters via Steam Early Access.
It doesn’t look like Mighty Rabbit Studios have been resting on their laurels, though. Where the original had your team of soldier men storming buildings and shooting terrorists in the face, Breach & Clear: DEADline has them… well, they’re fighting parasitic worms that are turning people into monsters. What this basically means is “lots of new and very unique enemy types”, which is probably more interesting than a man in a gun with a different outfit.
Breach & Clear: DEADline is also set to offer real-time strategy elements, although I’m not quite sure how. It apparently offers a Command Mode, which gives “greater on-the-fly decision making during enemy encounters” via giving you “full control over the entire squad”, which might mean something to people who played the original? I don’t know. In any case, you’ll be able to level up your soldiers and send them on side-quests to nab rare ammo, weapons, and gear.
General opinions on the original were, apparently, that it was really rather solid – if a little shallow. Perhaps these additional features, enemy types, side-quests, and so on will fix that issue? We’ll find out soon, I’m sure.
Breach & Clear: DEADline will be pitting you against monsters, mind-worms, and more in Steam Early Access sometime in autumn, for £12.99.Related to this article

When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
