Rival-Species is a Warhammer 40,000 based Half-Life modification, aiming to recreate the dark future of the 41st millenium as fully as possible. Along with including a huge number of weapons, three races are currently available to play; the advanced Eldar race, the unshakeable Space Marines and the treacherous Chaos Marines. A huge number of classes can be enabled by the team leader, ranging from heavy terminator troops to Jump Pack equipped assault troops and everything in-between. The mod also includes pilotable war-machines, such as dreadnoughts (giant robots), but these are planned to be tweaked much more in future versions.

All other information (including model lists) is available at the official Rival-Species website.
