UFO: Aftershock

ALTAR Interactive reveals plans for UFO: Aftershock, a sequel to UFO: Aftermath, their xenophobic strategy game. In conjunction with the announcement, a trailer showing off a bit of gameplay has been released, and can be found on Adrenaline Vault, GameCenter.cz, Gamer's Hell, Jucaushii.ro, Loadedinc, and Worthplaying; and there's a shrunken-down DivX version on Tiscali Games. Here's the fact sheet on what's been revealed so far:
The story continues...

After the alien invasion, the Council of Earth successfully fought the Reticulans and moreover discovered their secret plan: to cover the Earth with "Biomass", a network of alien organic tissue that, the Reticulans hoped, would become conscious and endowed with immense psychic powers. The Reticulans who invaded the Earth are not true representatives of their kind, they are a breakaway faction that burned the bridges and chose this backwater part of space to conduct its experiments.

The Reticulans would construct a large satellite (several kilometres across) with a closed ecosystem and move the remnants of human population there. The experiment with the Biomass would go on on the surface. Then something went horribly wrong...

Someone should dig out X-Com: Alliance and finish it.

You didn't miss the fun, it actually seems as if you found more fun than I did.


Horrible game.
Terrible.


Agreed. LSN or the Collecter's Edition are the way to go.

Man, if they actually added deformable terrain, and gravity, this game would go from suckage to a decently fun anti-alien shooter.

Oh, and they have to make it so the aliens don't completely destroy you with deployed lasers later on in the game.

I guess I just missed the fun in this one.

at the insults that are repeatedly dealt to the X-Com UFO legacy by inept studios that churn out steaming piles of bug laden shit. Everyone do yourself a favor, buy X-com collectors edition off ebay, or go play laser squad nemesis, don't support incompetant developers like ALTAR who are attempting to milk the legacy of one of the best games ever, that they had nothing to do with the making of. worse than fucking vultures. stupid people should not be allowed to buy games, they encourage developers to continue this behavior.

Which will also be followed by: UFO: Aftermarket.

You know selling dlc before you patch the client doesn't impress upon me the need to support your shit. -massdev
