Team17′s trio of Alien Breed shooters have always been a digital download only via the likes of PSN, Xbox Live Marketplace or Steam, Until now that is because the Alien Breed Trilogy is heading to retail for the Xbox 360, and we can only guess that a retail PS3 version will follow at some point.
The Alien Breed Trilogy is a collection of three arcade-shooters with an epic narrative, swarms of intelligent alien enemies, high-impact weapons, highly detailed and rich environments; all implemented with superb technology in a state-of-the-art gaming experience, developed using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3. With classic isometric arcade shooter gameplay, players can run and shoot in all directions, and collect a number of different weaponry, grenades, gun turrets and health packs to help them defeat vicious enemies and advance through the game, taking on thrilling alien bosses. In addition to the thrilling single-player campaign and “survivor” modes, the game also offers relentless, action-packed, two-player online and offline co-operative battle modes. Mastertronic’s Product Director Neil McKenna said: “With the Alien Breed games developed as AAA titles, and originally only being available to download, we’re very pleased to offer gamers a chance to play the complete boxed trilogy collection for the first time.”
Alien Breed Trilogy will be released as a boxed copy for Xbox 360 on 18th March Pre-order HERE
