New Breach update targets PC lag

Shooter gets new features, bug fixes.

Downloadable shooter Breach gets its first update this week, with PC lag issues firmly in the crosshairs.

Reduced online lag is the headline tweak, but the update fixes a number of bugs and adds in new features to the Breach Dedicated Server application too. Check out the full list below for more details.

Developed by ex-Bungie types Atomic Games, Breach launched on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 last month. Eurogamer's Quintin Smith came away unimpressed, awarding it a modest 5/10.

Atomic also announced an update is in the works for console versions of the game, though didn't divulge further information.
