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.

  2. Notice that I did another reply, with my real name. Ren, your last comment proved what I said earlier, by claiming victory, because I chose to be the bigger person and leave, shows obvious childlike qualities. anyways, im done now bye

    • ^^ Glad to finally know you Kevin Tomphson please keep the counter post on mmobomb forums to a minimum from now on and have a nice day. ^^ come back when you have some thing more constructive to add. this is RenTheRose saying “lets all be friends and not hate”

      • I’m truly sorry everyone I didn’t intend to be hateful it’s just my brain has not worked well from all the years of sitting too close to the TV when I was a child my mother told me not to but being the child I was I didn’t listen so now I have spurts of idiocy from time to time I’ll do my best to be a good boy in the future

        Kevin Tomphason.

        • P.S. I can’t promise anything though if I do become irritable in the future just ignore me cause I don’t have any control over my actions again I’m truly sorry

          • Nah I’m just kidding I’m lying out my ass. Get off your high horse and stop trying to police the comments on a site that is barely a blip on the internet. I troll because I love to piss off white knights like you.

  3. youre still failing dude, whatever, im done here, i dont need you idiots to clog up this post anymore than you have, bye have a great day

  4. lol by the way, to the person trying to make me sound like an ass, you are greatly failing. you cant spell worth crap.. and if I wanted to troll, i would do a much better job.

    • i cant do any thang in my life but troll so will trol for the rest of my pathetic exsistants i also suck at spell so i am running my self throw a spell check so i can hide the fact

  5. 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?

    • umm let me spell out what hes saying he mean shut up no one here cares what your saying and your ruining the point of commenting on the page so gtfo of mmobomb.com

      • and you’re continuing to be stupid too? Epic Fail, to both of you.. you’re both proving to be immature children who need to grow up.

        • the topic is artic combat you idiot we are here to talk about artic combats new content so you the 10 year old who cant even read or get the fyi that no one wants you posting any more epic fail hello you cant even move the topic foword you dont even know what a troll is ohh and you cant grow up enoff you put oh a real name so you hide behind a fake user and it proves thatr what you say is nothing at all so shut the **** up move to a trollers form if you still dont know what troll means go ask your parents you 10 year old waist of space and bye comment back to this post you prove that you are a troll that cant even let the simpleist thang go.

      • Being quoted is the highest form of internet flattery. Whether the person who quoted you is agreeing with you or being a jerk, what matters is that somebody cares.
        (witch means you loved my comment even tho i misspelled it)

      • There is no need to be an asshole if you can’t say anything productive do your best not to say anything at all. Not everyone is topnotch grammar experts nothing is going to be accomplished from belittling them when what they say has far more intelligence put into it then what you managed to spit out.

  7. 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.
