“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.”
If you don’t want to take the plunge and prefer to try before you buy, a demo is available.
Alien Breed, recognized as one of the foremost Amiga games ever released, was launched in 1991, developed and published by Team17 Software Ltd. It proved an instant success, with the Special Edition version spending an incredible 33 unbroken weeks at the top of the UK Sales Charts. A sequel was released in 1993 (Alien Breed 2) and a 3D edition, both of which won numerous awards. The well-loved series had lain dormant for 14 years, until December 2009, when it arrived in stunning fashion with the production-heavy ‘Alien Breed Evolution’ on Xbox 360 LIVE Arcade achieving Christmas No. 2 sales position on Xbox 360 LIVE Arcade.
The demo is on the Xbox Live Marketplace, so it would be easier just to look via the console, but if you’re elsewhere and want to set up the download, go to Xbox.com. Visit Steam to get the demo or even buy the game.
