COR Entertainment has announced that Alien Arena: Combat Edition, the latest installment in the popular Alien Arena series, is now available for Windows, Linux, Unix and OSX. Combat Edition now includes the brand new Alpha Demo of Alien Arena: Tactical, a completely new mode of play that is objective oriented, slower paced, and requires precise teamwork in order to defeat the opposing team.
Tactical pits Aliens vs Humans in a struggle to disable the enemy base by disabling their defense systems, destroying several key components and sub-components. Each team consists of three different player classes, each with a different ability that interacts with other classes. Working together a team can destroy their enemy much faster than if not.
The Alpha Demo contains a single map, Tac-Extermination, and serves as a proving ground for the evolution of this new game. Some of the artwork is placeholder, as this is an Alpha, and several other game play elements regarding physics and abilities are not yet implemented.
The full release of Alien Arena: Tactical is scheduled for the Spring of 2014. A separate, smaller installer that includes just the Tactical Alpha Demo is also locally mirrored.
