Alien Breed Evolution Out In Two Weeks

TEAM17 have just let us know that the first episode of Alien Breed Evolution is out in less than two weeks, on Wednesday, December 16th, on Microsoft Xbox Live Arcade and priced at just 800 Microsoft Points ($10/£6).  The game, which is a next-gen update of the Amiga classic, features “incredible fidelity and attention to detail” throughout, awesome audio effects and an engaging single player narrative. The pulsating story takes the game’s hero through an intense ride through a stricken craft, onto a mysterious, ageing hulk ship and beyond.


The press release also tells us that in addition to the explosive single player story, the game also offers a relentless, action packed, two-player co-operative battle mode for online and offline local action with a number of difficulty modes to challenge all skills.  The game features hours of dramatic single and multiplayer action, unique and exciting set pieces, thrilling bosses to fight and incidental surprises throughout.

  • The story is conveyed by fantastic comic-book art and quality voice acting, the narrative unfolds and twists with dramatic climaxes and truly epic battles.
  • Developed using Epic Software’s Unreal® technology, the title boasts stunning, state of the art visual effects.
  • Fine audio finesse, including a fully re-mastered edition of Allister Brimble’s cult original game title track, you have a title that’s high on quality, nostalgia and meticulous attention to detail.

Alien Breed Evolution raises the quality and production bar for original digital download titles and especially so at the attractive price-point. It all adds up to make one of the slickest, directly entertaining titles in Team17’s history and a worthy modern remake of one of its earliest and most admired pick up and play titles.  Alien Breed Evolution also continues Team17s recent rebirth as an independent digital publisher, with all it’s previous Worms titles hitting top spot in terms of digital sales charts on XBLA, PSN and AppStore.

Initially exclusive to Xbox 360, the trilogy will also be available for PC and PlayStation3 in 2010.
