Team 17 have announced the release date for Alien Breed Evolution. The first episode of the re-imagined shooter hits Xbox Live Arcade on 16th December.
A complete revamp of the 90’s classic Alien Breed, Evolution is a top-down isometric 3D shooter that, visually at least, stays true to the original template. Spanning three episodes in total, each is available separately as a stand-alone game, offering a single-player story as well as local and online two-player cooperative play. An overarching narrative inks each together.
The first Alien Breed Evolution episode will cost 800 Microsoft Points, with the second and third expected to become available in 2010. A Steam release of the game is also expected, though a release date is yet to be announced.
