Breach & Clear: DEADline shooting onto Steam Early Access this fall

Developers Gun Media and Mighty Rabbit Games have seen some success with their debut tactical shooter, Breach & Clear. The 2013 game, produced by ex-Call of Duty strategist Robert Bowling, first released on iOS and later released on Android and PC. Now the two studios are ready to expand Breach & Clear's horizons with a new follow-up called Breach & Clear: DEADline, which will be developed for PC.

DEADline takes place shortly after the events of the first Breach & Clear. Harbor City is under siege by a mysterious race of parasitic worms, which are turning the populace into savage monsters. Players take control of a Special Forces squad commander leading his unit into the heart of the outbreak.

DEADline will retain the series' combat elements, while allowing players to control their entire squads through real-time strategy mechanics like the Command Mode feature. Squad members will level up and gain new abilities, as the game plays out over open world battlefields. Dynamic events will also unfold over the course of the game, potentially altering the battlefield.

Breach & Clear: DEADline is a long way from release, which is why it'll hit Steam Early Access first this fall, in an effort to collect feedback from early adopters. The game will run for $19.99 on PC, Mac, and Linux.
