London, UK- June 3rd 2010 – Team 17 today announces that the latest incarnation of the legendary Alien Breed series is now available for PC users worldwide via Steam.
Alien Breed: Impact offers a dynamic combination of fast-paced action and intriguing adventure in a foreboding world of dread and horror. Scavenge for weapons, ammunition and items to use against overwhelming odds across five monstrous, highly detailed and beautifully realised environments. Search anywhere and everywhere, even those that have fallen, for credits to spend on upgrades and that last ammo clip to help keep your foes at bay. Should you triumph and conquer the alien horde alone, then take a friend to the meat grinder that is the co-operative play experience over Steam, and let the Alien Breed unleash its full fury on two more willing victims.
