Now there’s a name I haven’t heard in a while: Alien Swarm. The cooperative top-down shooter game, inspired by 2004’s Alien Swarm Unreal Tournament mod, came out of nowhere in July 2010 and for a while grabbed everyone’s attention.

Now, Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop is available for free on Steam. This is a version of the game expanded by a dedicated team of modders; arguably the most important addition is the support for Steam Workshop, which should allow the community to produce and share a ton of user-made maps and thus increase longevity by a significant amount.

  • Tactical co-op for up to 8 players with a top-down perspective
  • Steam Workshop support for community maps and challenges
  • New co-operative campaigns
  • Challenges: Modifications of the game, just like Mutations in Left 4 Dead 2
  • PvP: Deathmatch, Gun Game, Instagib, and Team Deathmatch
  • Singleplayer: Play with improved bots on all our official maps
  • New Aliens: HL2 antlion guards and more
  • New Weapons: Desert Eagle, Devastator, and Combat Rifle, with more to come
  • Over 100 Steam achievements
  • Leaderboards: compete with your friends for the fastest mission completion
  • Improved spectating: see hacking minigames and mouse movements in real time

In case you’ve played it already, let us know if it’s still any fun.
