'Breed' is the first project to be developed utilizing the 'Mercury' engine. Breed is an action based game set both in Earth orbit and on its surface. From the orbiting USC Darwin the player launches attacks against the Breed, the aggressive biomechanical race infesting Earth. Once the Darwin is discovered the Breed will launch waves of attacks to destroy the last of the USC cruisers. The player takes control of 'grunts' who may be flying fighters or dropships, driving tanks or APC's, manning vehicular turrets or running around in the dirt, trying to blow away the 'Breed'. Heavily armed dropships are used to deploy ground forces into Breed controlled territory. If aboard a suitable vehicle, the player may move freely between orbit and the planet surface.

Breed is a cutting-edge science-fiction shoot-em up, which skilfully blends addictive, accessible, free-roaming gameplay with cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology to expand not only the gameplay potential, but also the players perceived freedom within the game world.

Utilising both 1st and 3rd person viewpoints, players can freely take control of a variety of units and vehicles – from standard ground troops to APCs and Dropships – to do battle with The Breed both in orbit and on the Earths surface. The objective is simple: Halt the invasion of The Breed and stop the destruction of mankind.
