Now, Team17 are proud to announce the release of all three titles as a packaged compilation, now available on Steam!

The Alien Breed™ Trilogy resurrects a much revered franchise with an epic narrative, swarms of intelligent alien enemies, high-impact weaponry and rich environments; all implemented with superb technology in a state-of-the-art gaming experience, developed using Epic Games' Unreal® Engine 3. In addition to the thrilling single-player campaign and“Survivor” modes, the games offer relentless, action-packed, two-player online co-operative battle modes.
