A mobile version, which will include the Advanced Edition update and will be free of ads or in-app purchases, will also arrive on Netflix on July 19. Alongside these updates, Subset Games also announced a physical edition for the Switch, which will be out later this year.
More details about the update will be revealed as the release date approaches.
Though it didn't quite live up to the high standards created by FTL, its predecessor, we gave Into the Breach a 9, calling it “one of the biggest little games around.” We also deemed the game one of the best roguelikes in 2021.
