A while back we announced Arctic Combat would be getting a new 4-player Co-Op Defense mode. Not wanting to jump the gun and accuse AC of following in the footsteps of practically every other lobby-based Free-to-Play shooter with a zombie mode, we held out hope the new baddies were more than just hordes of the risen undead.

Turns out we were right! Well sort of. The new threat is not hordes of zombies but swarms of aliens, 15 alien species to be exact. Whenever I hear the word swarm and aliens used in the same sentence I can't help but think of Starcraft's Zerg. Kerrigan is that you?

The new mode has players tasked with protecting a nuclear reactor while fending off attacks from both ground and air assailants. Players will have to fight off the usual waves of enemies, each with their own attack patterns. Boss battles, varying levels of difficulty, a new map, weapons and skill upgrades are all on the table for this update as well.

Altogether this marks the first major content update for Arctic Combat since its launch in December.

You can find more screenshots or try the mode out for yourself by visiting the official site here.

Your comments continue to prove your stupidity. You are obviously 10 years old. Trolls are mythical creatures in fairy tales. Did your dad perhaps forget to read you yours before bed last night?

Well, they weren't shy about blatantly ripping off some alien designs, were they? Honestly, I'm pretty sure I saw one of the Ridley Scott Aliens in there.

That said, this might be interesting... if this game were any good to start with.
