    Alien Breed™ Evolution (Episode 1) marks the rebirth of a gaming legend that has laid dormant for years. While the core gameplay remains intact, the technology, online component, and production values have improved immeasurably for your pleasure. The first episode of three has you battling alone or partnering up against the "breed," offline or online over five action-packed single-player levels and three multiplayer levels. Including bar-raising visuals and immersive gameplay, Alien Breed Evolution (Episode 1) is the definitive must-have action horror title you've been waiting for!

    • Multiplayer action: Get together with a friend and work as a lethal two-man unit in order to combat the "breed" from the same console or online with Xbox LIVE®.
    • Intelligent enemies: Swarms of highly intelligent enemies not only see and hear the player, but also smell their blood! Brain and brawn will be required to defeat them.
    • Realistic environments: The rich game universe is populated with the savage and bloodthirsty breed, and interactive non-player characters to help, hinder, and advance the story.
    • Show me more-ability: Each episode concludes with a cliffhanger, drawing you into the full story.
    • Weapons system: Six destructive, high-impact, visually stunning weapons are at your disposal to wipe out the horrors.
