Breach To Blast Its Way Onto The Xbox Live Arcade

As a developer of simulations for the US military, Atomic Games has a fair bit of experience making shooty things that go bang, so naturally the studio has decided to have a crack at developing a first-person shooter for Xbox Live Arcade.
Officially announced today, Atomic Games' forthcoming FPS Breach, utilises the developer's proprietary Hydrogen Engine, which will enable you to blow holes into interior and exterior walls, floors and presumably heads. You'll also be able to use the destruction mechanic to bring balconies and ceilings toppling down onto your enemies, or you can be a bit more subtle and blow out individual bricks to make a 'shooter hole' (steady).
An 'Active Cover System' will also feature, enabling you to peek around corners, blind-fire and pop in and out, although cover can be eaten away by bullets and destroyed too.
Taking control of CIA Special Activities Division officers, you'll be sent out on black-ops missions like the real-life squad, using their expertise with real-world gadgetry, weapons and other gear at your disposal.
Breach will be smashing through the Xbox Live Arcade walls this Summer.
