Breach will cost 1,200 Microsoft Points ($15) on Xbox Live Arcade, while the PC edition will receive digital and retail releases, at $19.99.

The PC edition will boast "larger explosions, particle effects and more," courtesy of Nvidia's PhysX technology, plus support for dedicated servers with remote admin.
