Breed 2: Assault, a second title in the revitalized series of
shooters based on the Amiga classic, is hitting Steam and Xbox Live
Arcade this September 22, game creator Team17 Software announced.
Alien Breed 2: Assault is the second chapter in the Alien BreedTM
series, and is an explosive science fiction arcade-shooter with an epic
story, swarms of highly intelligent alien enemies and highly detailed
environments, developed using Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3. 'Assault'
finds the player taking control of Conrad, Chief Engineer aboard the
dying ship Leopold, and continuing his fight for survival across the
fatally damaged space vessel. His only hope relies on reigniting the
alien spacecraft's monstrous engines to rescue him from impending
annihilation, but to do this he will have to survive wave after wave of
relentless alien assaults. In addition to the thrilling single-player
campaign and all new “Survivor” modes, the game
also offers action-packed, two-player online co-operative battle modes.
"As the second adventure in the Alien BreedTM trilogy, we're
really happy with how much 'Assault' adds to an already strong gameplay
formula. We've got some awesomely destructive new weapons to purchase
and upgrade, monstrous new boss battles, and some really exciting
set-pieces”, says John Dennis, Head of Design at Team17
Software Ltd. "Add to this our brand-new "Survivor" Mode, which pits
players against relentless waves of enemies in either single-player or
two-player co-op, and the stress-inducing, claustrophobic experience of
moving ever deeper into a space station infested with blood-thirsty
aliens, and you get a very strong offering that we hope will please
both Alien BreedTM fans and players new to the game alike."
