New Weapons Update for Infested Planet

There's a new weapons patch out for Infested Planet, specifically improving the Planetary Campaign expansion.

Since our players enjoyed the procedural campaign so much, I decided to add a few new toys for free. Each tech tree is randomised, so adding a few new options is a good way to shake the game up.

New Weapons

Here are the new tools for your alien-fighting pleasure. They will show up in your campaigns, randomly replacing old tech. You can also check them out in the custom game mode (if you have the DLC).

Toxic Bomb

We've already had airstrikes in the game. Now this technology allows you to drop a poison cloud on the enemy hives, killing all the bugs in the area. The best thing is that the cloud hangs around, so you could cleverly deny the aliens portions of the map.

Holopad

Sometimes you just have to be tricky instead of brawny. This new building will spawn holographic marines to distract the enemy. While they're shooting at decoys, you can shoot them back with real bullets.

Cloaking Field

Make sneak attacks with this new research building. It cloaks your entire team and allows them to fire on enemies for a while before uncloaking.

Triage

In the Planetary Campaign expansion, sometimes your armies get beat up and run out of morale. Solution? Rescue your soldiers with this new tech station just before they die. If you pull it off right, you can still win even with the most demoralized army.

Radio Pod

This allows you to buff a single soldier to fire three times as fast. Stick this on a minigunner or a rocket trooper and they'll eat aliens alive.

Other Improvements

You can now customize the Planetary Campaign before you start it. I added two new advanced options:

  • Play every single campaign map with fog of war
  • Reduce the power of retreating (to eliminate exploits)

There are also several bugfixes and tweaks.

Enjoy the patch!

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.
