London, UK- November 12th, 2010 – Throughout 2010, the Alien Breed™ series has delivered tense moments, frenetic firefights and co-op carnage to gamers across the world. The opening title, Alien Breed™: Impact/Evolution introduced players to the plight of Theodore Conrad, chief engineer aboard the doomed ship Leopold, struggling to regain control of his ship after a collision with a mysterious foreign vessel. Alien Breed™ 2: Assault saw Conrad fighting back, boarding the newly conjoined ship and delivering doses of old-fashioned revenge on its inhabitants. Now, with Alien Breed 3: Descent gamers can fight to the stunning conclusion of the latest trilogy from legendary developer/publisher Team17’s Alien Breed™ canon, with the official release date being confirmed as Wednesday 17th November 2010 on Xbox LIVE Arcade and for PC, via Steam.
With the Leopold and its unwanted attachment breaching the surface of an imposing ice planet, you have only a few hours to wade your way through flooded corridors and locate the origin of the threat that has so far laid waste to your once proud space ship. For the first time Conrad can venture outside of the ship in the breathtaking hull walk set pieces, and for those trigger-happy shooter fans there are vicious new enemies to fight, including the Electro-Shocker alien and the awe-inspiring final bosses. New armaments are also available in Descent, with the Electro-Link gun allowing for shockingly good crowd control whilst the formidable Project X weapon will tear through anything in its path.
