Team17 press release (December 08, 2010):

    Alien Breed™ 2: Assault out today via the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation®3

    London, UK- December 8th, 2010 – Capping off a highly successful year for world-renowned developer and publisher Team17, the release of Alien Breed 2: Assault marks the next step in the reboot of the franchise for the PlayStation®3 system. Pick up the controller and retake command of Theodore Conrad, Chief Engineer aboard the Leopold, as he battles his way through a mysterious spacecraft - the same ship that is releasing the alien menace currently terrorizing Conrad’s own vessel!

    Featuring the new “Survivor” mode, Alien Breed 2: Assault offers you (and a friend if you so wish, in both online and local action) the chance to fight for your life in an arena-style gauntlet. Facing increasingly difficult waves of enemies, your death is certain. How long you survive, however, is up to you! For those that adventure alone, the single-player experience is just as tense and thrilling, with new set pieces and boss battles awaiting you in the depths of the alien craft. If you have the guts, and nerves of steel, then prepare to take the fight to the enemies’ doorstep aboard the invading ship, beautifully rendered using the Unreal® Engine 3 technology.

    “As the second adventure in the Alien Breed trilogy on PlayStation Network, we’re really happy with how much Alien Breed 2: Assault adds to an already strong gameplay formula,” says John Dennis, Head of Design at Team17 Software Ltd. “We’ve got some awesomely-destructive new weapons to purchase and upgrade, monstrous new boss battles and some really exciting set-pieces; add to this our brand-new Survivor Mode and you get a very strong offering that we hope will please both Alien Breed fans and players new to the series alike."
