Breach players have a new class to try out after yesterday's patch brought the Shadow Master Veil Demon class into the game as well as the new challenge system.

Breach, a co-op action RPG from QC Games, has hit early access on Steam after quite a few rounds of alpha testing and I’ve spent the last four days playing it so I can give you the skinny. I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on it since then because we all left HQ excited about the possibilities of what we had seen.
Today marks a major milestone for Breach and the QC Games team as Steam Early Access kicks off. Early Access is, however, just the beginning and QC has posted a robust Early Access Roadmap that provides players with a look ahead at new features and systems that will be coming to the game between now and September.
The Breach team starts out the description for the Veil Demon with an interesting quote: "Some days, you don't feel like being a hero. Some days, you want to be the creature that causes mass chaos in a game, summoning creatures and spawning traps to trip up other players". Don't know about you, but that sounds pretty fun...
Breach is a new Co-Op ARPG hitting early access on Steam very soon. But is it worth your time? TheHiveLeader is here to help you out with that and to give you a quick look at the game.
QC Games has announced that Breach will be entering Steam Early Access on January 17th. Fans can get hold of pre-order packages starting at $25 that includes bonus content, though these will become unavailable once early access begins. Bonus content includes the digital artbook, dance emotes, sprays and other in-game content.
The Breach team has sent out a brand new trailer that shows off the gameplay and abilities of the Elementalist class, a member of the Arcane school of magic.
From the PR: "The Necromancer is a master of summoning spirits and undead minions to skillfully deploy in any tactical situation. Feel free to direct a squad of skeletons to attack a specific target or draw health from the spirit energy of minions with explosive benefits. Maybe you prefer to utilize the ultimate ability of raising an undead army to overwhelm your enemies? Regardless of your choices, you’ll welcome the power of the dark side with the Necromancer."
The Breach team is ready to show off yet another of the playable heroes coming with the game. This time, the spotlight shines on the Arcane Menders. These versatile characters "can do more than just provide healing skills. They can also use the Guardian Sprite ability to apply a damage shield to [themselves] or an ally and build up Transcendent Blast" that can do some serious damage.
