The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has recently rated ‘Alien Breed 2: Assault’ for the Xbox 360. Currently in development by Team 17, the game is a fast-action 3rd person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier battling aliens on a mysterious spaceship.

Rated ‘TEEN’ by the ESRB:
From a top-down perspective, players explore dark corridors and search for key cards, unlock doors, and attempt to power up areas of the ship. Aliens emerge from holes, pods, and passageways to attack the player’s character; the soldier uses assault rifles, shotguns, machine guns, flamethrowers, and grenades to kill hostiles, including larger boss aliens. Aliens screech and emit splashes of green blood when killed. The word “shit” is heard occasionally in dialogue.
The original Alien Breed games in the early 90’s were unofficially based on the Alien films and released to critical acclaim. Alien Breed: Evolution, released on the Xbox LIVE Arcade, December 2009, was the developer’s first game in the series for over 14 years!
Confirmation of Alien Breed 2: Assault for the Xbox LIVE Arcade has not yet been officially announced by Team 17 - so pricing and release date information could be some time away.
