    Год 2610. Начавшиеся в дальнем космосе боевые действия потребовали концентрации практически всех имеющихся в распоряжении землян сил. Лучшие из лучших были собраны и отправлены туда, где решалась судьба человечества, туда, где огневая мощь и воинское умение были нужнее всего. Никто и предположить не мог, что дальний поход обернется тем, чем он обернулся, что война, в жерло которой было брошено всё, окажется одной из уловок вероломного врага...

    • "Особь" - новый 3D action, сюжет которого повествует о противостоянии горстки элитных бойцов, вернувшихся из дальнего похода и обнаруживших, что Земля захвачена жестокой инопланетной расой, люди - частью уничтожены, частью порабощены, армия - отсутствует, и что шансов на спасение почти нет.
    • Вам предстоит возглавить отряд генетически модифицированных солдат, способных эффективно противостоять врагу практически в любых условиях. Задача подразделения - нанесение точечных ударов по жизненно важным узлам инфраструктуры захватчиков с целью ослабления обороны противника и последующего его уничтожения.
    • В распоряжении игрока - обширный арсенал разнообразного оружия и средств передвижения, использование которых делает игровой процесс насыщенным и разнообразным.
    • Несколько многопользовательских режимов позволят вам сразиться с друзьями в локальной сети или в Интернет.

www.breedgame.com - Press Quotes (German/English):
    "Der Halo-Killer ist da:
    Breed!"
    (giga.de, Juni 2003)

    "Dank grandioser Optik, der vielen Fahrzeug- und Waffentypen sowie reicher Figurenauswahl wird Breed in Fachkreisen als ernst zu nehmende Konkurrenz für den ebenfalls bevorstehenden Action-Kracher Halo2 gehandelt."
    (ComputerBild Spiele, 05/2003)

    " Breed wird zu den Shootern gehören, bei denen man neben dem Zeigefinger auch das Hirn einsetzen muss."
    (PC Games, 02/2002)

    "magazinweise Ballerspaß ...
    Ersteindruck: Sehr gut!"
    (Gamestar, 07/2003)

    "... ein spielerisches wie optisches Feuerwerk ... lässt auf einen actionreichen, optisch beeindruckenden Shooter hoffen, der wohl den größten Konkurrenten für Halo... darstellt."
    (justgamers.de, 01/2003)

    "Potenzial: 5 (von 5)"
    (PC Joker, 06/2003)

    "Bei Breed schlägt das Spielerherz höher."
    (zocker-heaven.de, April 2003)

    "Ersteindruck: sehr gut."
    (krawall.de, 05/2003)

    "The Halo-Killer is here:
    Breed!"
    (giga.de, June 2003)

    "I've never seen a game as ambitious, with an engine that can handle space combat and do a seamless transition for craft to pass through the atmosphere to the planet."
    (PC Zone, 9/2002)

    "Breed looks like it's shaping up to be a real contender. If it lives up to its potential, Breed could be the "Halo killer" it's being labeled as. Heck, if it lives up to its potential, Battlefield 1942, Counter-Strike and Unreal Tournament 2003 could be next on the list. It will be an interesting thing to see what Brat Designs does with the power they hold in their hands. Let's hope they use it for good."
    (avault.com, 8/2003)

    "We haven't felt this immersed in a war zone since...
    wait. We won't say it."
    (GMR magazine, 7/2002)

    "Breed is fun whether played single-player or with a team."
    (Sci Fi magazine, 8/2003)

    "By year's end, we might all start referring to all the wanna-be tactical first-person shooters that aspire to greatness as Breed Killers."
    (dailygame.net, 6/2003)

www.cdv.de (English):
    Breed is a cutting-edge science-fiction shoot'em up, which skillfully blends addictive, accessible, free-roaming gameplay with cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology to expand not only the gameplay potential, but also the player's perceived freedom within the game world. In other words: multiple 3D action.
