Alien Breed™ 3: Descent lands on PlayStation®Network today

London, UK, February 23, 2011 – In 2010, the Alien Breed™ series was born on the PlayStation®3 via the PlayStation®Network, delivering thrilling encounters in deepest space. Following the plight of Theodore Conrad, Chief Engineer of the spacecraft Leopold, Alien Breed™ Impact and Alien Breed™ 2: Assault’s high-energy firefights and survival horror proved very popular indeed amongst PlayStation®3 shooter fans.

With today’s release of Alien Breed™ 3: Descent , this trilogy is brought to a close in cinematic style! New set pieces, weapons, enemies, both co-operative missions and“Survivor” mode levels and Trophy awards await the player on their final journey into the depths of the alien vessel. Lying in wait is a foe even Conrad himself could not have imagined…

“The third and final installment, Alien Breed™ 3: Descent marks a climatic end to a trilogy of which we are extremely proud”, says Paul Dunstan, Senior Designer at Team17 Software Ltd.“Amongst the fearsome new aliens and goliath bosses to battle, the environment itself will challenge how you compete for survival; from the turbulently violent space station’s exterior hull, to the rapidly flooding decks as it submerges into the crushing depths of an icy ocean.”
