Phalanx Campaign preview! 29th May 2005
MjrHuRTz has been working hard constructing the Phalanx Campaign for Alien Swarm, which is our first entry into the Fan-made Maps section. We have some great screenshots and details of the campaign to show off here on the site. Check it out:
"The Space Station Phalanx is one of the many institutes ran by the wide-spread SynTek Megacorporation. Located in the Luyten system, the station houses many facilities, including research laboratories and large information databanks.
We know very little about the research operations here, but we do know they have been experimenting largely with organic life forms, including Plants, various Earth-found animals, and even specimens from the Swarm.
72 hours ago contact with the station collapsed. SynTek have made no comment about the incident, but we have now been forced to take action.
The IAF have been called up to investigate the station, and find any data on the incident. We believe this to be a case of Swarm infestation, proceed with extreme caution."
The Phalanx Campaign gives you 6 new missions, ranging from a Greenhouse facility to heavily infested living quarters. The campaign is due for release within the next two weeks, so keep an eye here and on the forums for it!

As you can see, we've given the Alien Swarm site an overhaul to go with the announcement of our new game: "Alien Swarm: Infested" built using the Source Engine. We're putting a crazy amount of effort into this new game, so be sure to check out the released screenshots.
Our work on AS:I is long term and we won't be forgetting Alien Swarm for UT2004 in the meantime, so expect to see updates. We have the 1.3 patch underway and will shortly release a list of bugfixes and tweaks you can expect to see in it.
We'll also be highlighting the best quality fan-made maps in a new section on the site, with special features on two promising custom campaigns currently in production. We'll also be offering support to these projects to better integrate them into Alien Swarm and allow them to add all the custom features they need.
