Into the Break from Subset Games, which created FTL:Faster Than Light, has a major content update. The expanded version has a subheading of the Advance Edition and is available not only on PC and Nintendo Switch, but also on iOS and Android .

Advance Edition includes the following new content:

  • Five units and 15 achievements for them; ravens: seven beetles, three psions and ten battles with bosses; 12 missions and three types of bonus tasks; four pilots and 10 random capabilities for them; 39 types of weapons and equipment; two musical compositions from Ben Prunti; and seven new locations, including Swedish and Turkish.

The "unfair regime" is designed for experienced players who lack a challenge, and involves other approaches to solving problems. It is necessary to build a strategy that takes into account the inevitable losses, such situations occur much more frequently. Depending on what happens, it may be more beneficial to lose the power of the network, to sacrifice the pilot, or to fail the mission. At the same time, developers have limited the number of bugs that appear, and sometimes it is better to keep the weak enemies alive, and have doubled the energy bonus.

The creators also adjusted the balance:

  • The use of energy for weapons has been reduced so that players can test the equipment immediately; the store has changed: since users can now immediately equip almost any weapon, the cost of buying weapons has increased by one, and the choice of items in the shop on the first two islands has become limited; new mechanics: nokout; the cost of unblocking units per coin has been reduced by accounting for new units.
  • Knockout -- some weapons can damage the cage, and it's gonna crumble. If it's damaged again, it's gonna fall apart and destroy everything that's on it;

All of the new Advanced Edition content can be disabled, but the balance changes are not allowed to be reversed.

The mobile version, which was created at the same time as the update, offers the entire content of the Advanced Edition and a sensor-screened interface. On iOS and Android, the game is free of charge and does not contain advertising and micro-payments, but is only available to Netlfix subscribers. In October, Nintendo Switch will release a physical expanded edition, pre-ordered by Fangamer.

Into the Breach was released in 2018 on PC and Nintendo Switch, and in 2020 was released for Linux and Google Stadia. In Steam, the strategy received over 12,000 reviews, with a rating of 94%.
