Into the Breach releases but no native support

Into the Breach releases but no linux support

Into the Breach is a single-player game coming to Windows, Linux and Mac (although not simultaneously). The games official release is available now for Windows. But coming to Linux, soon.

Linux support:

“No word on the Linux version yet – We’re a small team and our hands will be full with tech support for a little while. Hopefully it’ll calm down soon and we can move on to porting.”

So this bit of news comes directly from Subset Games. We already announced details that there will not be a simultaneous release last year.

Into the Breach follows remnants of human civilization. Those who are also taking refuge from gigantic creatures breeding beneath the earth. As the player, you must control powerful mechs from the future. While holding back the alien threat. Each attempt to save the world presents a new randomly generated challenge in this turn-based strategy game.

Into the Breach Features

  • Defend the Cities: Civilian buildings power your mechs. Defend them from the Vek and watch your fire!
  • Perfect Your Strategy: All enemy attacks are telegraphed in minimalistic, turn-based combat. Analyze your opponent’s attack and come up with the perfect counter every turn.
  • Build the Ultimate Mech: Find powerful new weapons and unique pilots as you battle the Vek infestation across Corporate-Nation islands.
  • Another Chance: Failure is not an option. When you are defeated, send help back through time to save another timeline!

There is no planned release date. Ben Prunty, FTL’s composer, is making an original soundtrack for the game, and award-winning sound designers PowerUp Audio are heading up the rest of the audio. Chris Avellone is lending his writing talents and world building skills to the team as well.
