'Alien Shooter 2' - Demo No Longer Available

by Rainier on June 1, 2006 @ 4:31 a.m. PDT

In Alien Shooter 2, hack 'n slash gameplay gets dropped into a science fiction storyline packed with dozens of weapons and vicious alien life forms. Sigma Team mistakenly released the wrong demo and asked us to retract the file. Proper demo expected later this month...

SIGMA TEAM has announced the immediate availability of a pre-release demo version of Alien Shooter 2, an action shooter with the elements of RPG. Alien Shooter 2 builds on the successes of its previous version. The large amount of enthusiastic feedback from players of that version inspired a large-scale sequel to the first part, expanding and deepening gameplay while delivering the unmatched dynamics of Alien Shooter 1. The company has already signed distribution agreements with the world's leading publishers. In Germany Alien Shooter 2 will be distributed by CDV (www.cdv.de), in Russia by 1C (www.games.1c.ru). Also, the company is currently having negotiations with several other publishers for the distribution of the game in the USA, Italy and the UK. Alien Shooter 2 is scheduled for release in July 2006. The game belongs to Class A and intended for CD retail. Its pre-release demo, as well as a video trailer is available as a free download from the SIGMA's site at www.sigma-team.net.

The game lets players blast away at thousands of alien creatures, which swarm the passages of a military complex, waiting for the new prey in numerous offices, storehouses and laboratories. You can choose from two characters to play: a male or a female, each of them having unique attributes like strength or shooting accuracy. The player must explore the complex, blast at creatures and avoid their touch or fire. Your objective is to destroy all aliens. In doing this you will have access to a wide range of weapons like pistols, explosives and even a turret gun that can help you get out of hopeless situations. Exploring the passages, the player must collect power-ups, such as health packs, bullets and money. The latter can be used to buy additional weapons and biomechanical implants that will make your fighting abilities super human!

In version 2, SIGMA's developers focused on enhancing the game's visuals and adding variety to the gameplay. The most impressive visual innovations include dynamic shadows, lightning, and a simulation of natural phenomena like fog, rain and water. Players will also discover an improved arsenal that now includes over 50 types of advanced weapons that not only kill but also burn, freeze and even diminish aliens. Additionally, there are over 20 types of useful gadgets from flash lights, radars and medkits to battle drones. Now, Alien Shooter features about 10 000 aliens on each map, showing up to 100 creatures simultaneously on the playing screen. On top of all this are three game modes, including Campaign, Survive and Network.
