Expansion Release Date - October 10th

On October 10th, Infested Planet will be getting a massive update. The new "Planetary Campaign" DLC will add randomly generated campaigns to the game.



You start out outnumbered by the enemy and with primitive technology. As you fight battles and conquer the map, you can unlock new technology to use in tactical portion of the game.

The tech progression is unique for every single campaign, so you have to be flexible in what weapons you use. Even Infested Planet veterans will find some new tech that's exclusive to the DLC.



Of course, it wouldn't be Infested Planet if the enemy didn't mutate to counter your tactics. The aliens analyse your play style, evolve campaign mutations and force you to adapt.



Put your general's hat back on and return to Infested Planet on October 10th!

Reviews

"Alex Vostrov has created the most fiendishly clever, creatively generous, and cinematically thrilling facing-down-the-alien-hordes real time strategy game this side of the original Starcraft! Who says a great RTS has to be a big budget studio endeavor?"
--Tom Chick, Quarter To Three

"Infested Planet is a game I’m excited to see evolve, as it has the potential to be a unique and engaging RTS unlike any I have played before."
--Nightmare Mode

"Infested Planet is already quite fun, and the current beta is being very actively expanded, refined and tuned. If you’re into strategy, this might well be worth keeping an eye on. After all, who knows what it could mutate into?" --DIY Gamer

"The mutations are an ingenious way to mix each game up and keep the experience fresh."
--WarGamer

About This Game

Command a team of 5 elite soldiers against an alien horde of 100,000. Surrounded on all sides, you must outmaneuver and outsmart the enemy.

The enemy is closing in around you. Your soldiers are being flanked and the perimeter is slowly collapsing under a vicious alien assault. Robotic turrets will not last much longer. Just a little more and the bugs will swarm into your unprotected base. What are your orders?

You order your soldiers to fall back to a defensive chokepoint and rebuild your defenses. Sacrifice the forward squads to gain some extra time. Gather your team while equipping them with flamethrowers and laser guns. Start building a siege cannon for fire support. Then, while the aliens are busy, flank their main hives to destroy and capture them.

You have just pulled off a tactical victory - but there's no time to rest.

The aliens are constantly mutating. One moment your shotguns are ripping through the horde, the next the aliens grow hard, bullet-proof armour. You must adapt as well. Equip your team with stealth suits, miniguns, grenade launchers - your commands will decide the battle's outcome.

Features

  • Real time tactical combat
  • A lengthy campaign where you develop new weapons
  • Procedural maps and random mutation system keep the game fresh
  • 21 Human weapons and buildings for you to wield
