Team 17's reincarnation of Alien Breed will be released on 16th December on Xbox Live Arcade. PC and PS3 owners must wait until next year for the game.
Alien Breed costs 800 MSP (£6.80/€9.60) and reinvents the old top-down shooter on modern day hardware. Unreal Engine 3 is under the hood and powering 3D models and environments plus new-age lighting.
There's some sort of story about aliens and spaceships, plus online or offline co-op for two. Head over to our Alien Breed Gallery for a fresh platter of screenshots.
This release will be the first episode in the planned Alien Breed Evolution trilogy, a self-published venture by Worms creator Team 17.
