Worms creators Team17 Software formally announced its plans to release Alien Breed Evolution, an Unreal Engine 3-powered remake of its Amiga top-down shooter.

As the original Alien Breed is now 18-years-old, some of you may be too young to remember it. Think Gauntlet meets Aliens. Or, you know, think Alien Syndrome. (No, don't think of the more recent Wii re-imagining. Think of the Sega arcade original.)


Team17 didn't confirm a platform (or platforms) for Alien Breed Evolution, but we hope they'll offer co-op alien killing enjoyment for anyone with access to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. The "retro modern" remake is due later this year, with the developer promising more details before end of Summer.
