Team 17 has announced that they have rebooted the Alien Breed franchise for the PlayStation 3 this time. Alien Breed 2: Assault is available right now for purchase via the PlayStation Network for the PS3. The game will retail for $9.99 in the US and £7.19 in the UK and €8.99 in Europe. Here is a little more about the game:
Featuring the new “Survivor” mode, Alien Breed™ 2: Assault offers you (and a friend if you so wish, in both online and local action) the chance to fight for your life in an arena-style gauntlet. Facing increasingly difficult waves of enemies, your death is certain. How long you survive, however, is up to you! For those that adventure alone, the single-player experience is just as tense and thrilling, with new set pieces and boss battles awaiting you in the depths of the alien craft. If you have the guts, and nerves of steel, then prepare to take the fight to the enemies’ doorstep aboard the invading ship, beautifully rendered using the Unreal® Engine 3 technology.
“As the second adventure in the Alien Breed trilogy on PlayStation Network, we’re really happy with how much Alien Breed 2: Assault adds to an already strong gameplay formula,” says John Dennis, Head of Design at Team17 Software Ltd. “We’ve got some awesomely-destructive new weapons to purchase and upgrade, monstrous new boss battles and some really exciting set-pieces; add to this our brand-new Survivor Mode and you get a very strong offering that we hope will please both Alien Breed fans and players new to the series alike.”
