About

Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop is a standalone expansion pack to Alien Swarm developed by Valve. The base game is included.

Setting

In distant future, the interplanetary travel was finally made possible. One planet was classified by the government for establishing a secret research base. It got overrun by aliens who were brought to the planet for research. A super elite squad was sent to deal with this problem.

Gameplay

Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop is a cooperative top-down shooter. While only four-player squads were present in the base game, the limit was brought up to eight for the expansion pack.

The game's core mechanics are not much different from the base game. The player's squad has to reach the end of the level while completing objectives, that require teamwork. For example, one of the players has to weld the door while the others cover them.

The game features a class-based mechanics. Every class is proficient in their own field and has to work in a team in order to succeed in the game. Four classes are present in the game featuring eight unique characters.

It is also possible for the players to unlock new weaponry for their classes by progressing through the game. Players also get new items for leveling up. It is also possible to reset your progress after reaching max rank and earn a badge for your proficiency.

Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop reviews and comments

Translated by

Alien swarm 2010 had great gameplay, and I want to say a big Bravo to valve for having brought back this game that lacked content hubs:) The addition of the coop to 8 scared me because I thought the game would become unplayable, but finally the game gives the impression that it really was thought for. One of the best free to play on steam currently! Throw yourself on it

You need to play this game! Seriosly the best coop shooter you can find. Random teams with low level can do the campagne but a well equiped and good trained Squad can ROCK THIS WALK THROUGH A HELL of nearly endless streams of screaming, cruel, painbringing BUGS! Strategie, talent, disziplin, teamwork, knowledge and a bit of luck are indispensable to reach the highest Achivements. So get this great experience for FREE!

Remember... almost 7 years ago now, a little free game landed on steam. Powered by valve, it was quickly uploaded by several thousand players. This title, in a plunging view where the alien was deszingual solo or with four of his friends, it was alien swarm. His "sequel" is here: alien swarm: reactive drop... and of course, several novelties are made by this new version. Good news, all this is always accessible for the modest sum of... €0.00! ... Have fun! Xd

A sequel succeeds from the small pillar of the alien swarm platform, the overall content is just huge (figuratively and clean:D)! This sequel is not going to bring you some content of phew compared to the preced. , its I confess that it must be said, but its still a very very good game where the T E A M P L A Y is the point very sharp.... In short I will detail, the game does not really have a proper scenario, you make a kind of campaign personalized in multi or each mission is a whole story... for example you are sent on a mission (from 2 to 8 in multi) in a deserted and invaded space colony.... by aliens! Your goal (I remind you that each mission has an obj DIF.) is to restart an energy reactor so that it can feed a neighboring scientific colony; to do this you will have to have the area filled with aliens. This is where the teamplay comes into play: your team will have to stay welded, in places abandoned and filled with monsters... so there are several of different standards that are admittedly "Standart" but quite violent, those who attack (very) away, also there are sorts of mini bosses like the one that explodes when he dies, or a giant crab who put these Paws in front of him for make a shield... In short you will have to survive. -Good luck-
