'Alien Swarm: Infested' Announced - Screens

Alien Swarm: Infested is an upcoming action strategy game, using Valve's Source engine, featuring a unique blend of co-op play and squad level tactics all in an overhead view.

As a Commander in the Interstellar Armed Forces, your job is to guide your squad and successfully complete their mission against the ravages of the Swarm infestation, a threat which plagues mankind across the breadth of colonized space.

SynTek calls for reevaluation of mechanoid assault droid laws.

After losing control of yet another mining/refinery plant on the outlying worlds, the SynTek Megacorporation is calling for the Interstellar Alliance to reevaluate its laws on military androids. Law currently prohibits any non-ISAF party from manufacturing or deploying mechanoids capable of harming biological lifeforms and even the ISAF has only used its military droids on remote worlds with minimum civilian exposure.

These tight laws have been in place since the Rosebloom Pleasure World Massacre of '84, in which a single malfunctioning droid destroyed the Starport and communications array, then systematically killed over a million tourists before it was disabled by a group of ISAF marines on shore leave.

AS:I is built upon the Source Engine from Valve and will be available in two versions:

  1. a free download (requires Half-Life 2) and
  2. a competitively priced commercial version, featuring extra missions, characters, equipment and more!
