Into the Breach: Advanced Edition Next Month

Subset Games tweets the news that Into the Breach: Advanced Edition will be released on July 19th (thanks PC Gamer via Neutronbeam). This will come to the Windows and macOS edition of the strategy game on Steam as a free update for all owners of the original (which is currently on sale). This will also mark the game's mobile debut, as it will come to iOS and Android for all Netflix subscribers. A physical version for Switch will also follow in October. The Subset Games Website has the details and a trailer. This post on Steam has an overview:
We are excited to announce the free Advanced Edition update for Into the Breach, coming out on July 19th! Nearly every aspect of the game will be expanded with new content, including:

  • New Mechs and Weapons: Five new mech squads and nearly forty new weapons.
  • 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.

We’ll be elaborating on all of this new content over the coming weeks before launch and can’t wait for everyone to check it out.

I can't fathom why. If you get a mobile game thats even moderately popular you can retire early
It's a two man team, and they have sold millions of copies of FTL and ItB. I'm sure they could retire if they so desire. I think the reason that this took so long is that they worked normal hours to complete it.

I think because it's two guys that just want to make games they love. They're kind of pure like that.

Their last game has given me literally thousands of hours of fun. Possibly my most played game ever, despite coming out at a time that I game 10% as much as I used to

I'm shocked no one is calling Netflix the devil for having this exclusive
It seems pretty sucky to me. I guess it's the general anti-mobile bias on this board. I feel like there's a lot of disdain here for two kinds of mobile games: 1) predatory F2P games, and 2) ones that cost money. So this is kind of invisible to a lot of the PCMR crowd. I was going to say people are going to go, I can already play this on PC so what's the point, but it looks like that already happened.

Speaking for myself, it looks like a good fit on mobile but I'm not paying for a Netflix subscription to get it. It would be like going to Burger King and only being allowed to buy their spicy chicken sandwich if you had, well, a Netflix subscription. But it's not a 1:1 analogy with Epic and Steam since in this scenario I assume you're still getting the game on the Play Store/Apple Store. So it's more like those games that require Origin or the Ubi thing to be installed. Except if those things cost money; people already hate them when they're free.

I do think that they'd get more goodwill -- among other people, not necessarily posters here -- if they gave a discount coupon or a free month or something through the game. Or if you got it free with your Netflix account (which you do) but everyone else could still buy it for money.

Expecting consistency? That's optimistic.

I mean if the update is applied to previous versions and is also coming to switch, that's not exactly exclusive to Netflix. An interesting title for Netflix to pick up for their division though, very good game.

It is exclusive for mobile, just how most Epic games are also on consoles, but exclusive for PC. They're still on Xbox, PS, and Switch.
