Play Breach months ahead of its release at HMV Gamerbase, Trocadero, 27th and 28th October 2010

Wednesday 20th October: Innovative first-person action game Breach has been top of gamers’ wish-lists for quite some time– but players in London don’t have to wait until early 2011 to get their hands on it, as HMV Gamerbase at the Trocadero, Piccadilly, welcomes developer Atomic Games to a two-day showcase on October 27th and 28th.

For two days, anyone visiting HMV’s flagship gaming centre will be able to get some hands-on time with the latest build of the game– and see for themselves why this multiplayer action title is so eagerly awaited. The game will be running on of Gamerbase’s seven high-spec PCs between 10:00am and 6:00pm– with players able to jump into the action for free.

Breach is a multiplayer title for Windows PC and the Xbox LIVE ® Arcade for the Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and is scheduled for a January 2011 release. The game is a first-person multiplayer shooter that arms players with a Destruction Toolbox— a whole new set of real military tactics that are not possible in any other military game, offering virtual soldiers advanced tactics with which they can shock, manipulate, and obliterate their opponents.

“We’re delighted to bring Breach to the London Games Festival,” says Peter Tamte, President, Atomic Games.“We’ve never shown the game publicly in Europe before, so we’re thrilled to be doing so at a free event at London’s premier gaming centre. We’re looking forward to everyone being able to witness the next generation of multiplayer action games, for free, at HMV’s brilliant Gamerbase.”

“The videos look amazing, so if nothing else, we’re delighted to be hosting Breach at Gamerbase this October just so I can get my hands on it,” says Gordon Johnson, Gamerbase Supervisor.“The Breach event will allow everyone to enjoy the Gamerbase experience for free on the best gaming PCs in Britain– and we’re really pleased to welcome players as part of the London Games Festival.”

“This is exactly the sort of event London should be hosting during the Games Festival,” adds Kirsty Payne, director, London Games Festival.“Showing never-before-seen code to the public for free– we’re grateful to Atomic Games and HMV Gamerbase for becoming part of the festivities.”

Peter Tamte will be personally demonstrating the game to members of the press during the two day event. Please contact Gareth Williams at Premier PR to make an appointment.
