New UT2004 Alien Swarm

A new version 1.2 of the Alien Swarm modification is now available, an updated version of this project that turns the game into an overhead-view, squad-based shooter. Thanks Ant.

Well, I can't say I have had an easy time playing on easy difficulty either. I played with a mate (both controlling 2 members) but as of yet we haven't been able to finish the last level in campaign mode. I have the feeling that sometimes you and your enemies just move too fast, making it easy for things to go totally out of control, especially if you also need to take care of a computer-controlled character.

I feel so incompetent.

Some of the ideas in this game are excellent though, thumbs up!

Huh, Night Blade sounds cool. It's like a MP version of Thief.

Edit: Well, I see that Thievery UT is also a MP version of Thief. Hmm..

Amazing mod. The guys who did this are the cream of the crop...It's like a mix of Alien Breed (for you oldtimers ;)), Smash TV (for the even more ancient) and an RPG...
Shows the power of the Unreal engine too...as does Natural selection, but this is one hell of a piece of work. Hell, the presentation alone shows they gave it an unreal amount of polish. These guys need a publisher

This is one of, if not the best mod for UT2k4. And best mod all around. The perfect game for long time Aliens fans. Fox Interactive could learn a thing or two from these guys.

I suppose it's time for another hard drive, since my UT2004 install folder is getting pretty friggin huge. And this is still one of the best UT2004 mods out there.

Oh, btw blue, check the headline out. I do believe it's supposed to read 'Alien Swarm' not 'Alien Storm'. That, or I'm just missing something.

Definitely....... I've been telling my friends who have yet to buy UT2K4 that it's practically worth it just to play Alien Swarm. It's one of the most fun multiplayer experiences I've ever had.

This is UT's best mod, IMHO. If you haven't looked at it yet, do it now.

As a teamplay experience, it simply rocks. Even my buds who abhor team anything have a blast with this mod.

I still have to find time to play this. It looks totally awesome. Like Aliens meets SmashTV.
