Aliens invade Red Square

Currently in development by Buka Studios, The Swarm is a third-person shooter that drops you in the middle of a nuclear fallout after in alien invasion in Moscow, Russia.

Due for release on Xbox 360, the single player campaign will feature a series of moral choices, forcing you to choose between absorbing alien DNA and skills at the cost of gradually become a monster, or retaining your own humanity to fight off the alien invaders.

The Swarm begins in an alien-infested Red Square in Moscow, shown under the effects of a nuclear catastrophe. While searching for an antidote to cure your allies against the alien mutation, they'll be DNA mini-games and puzzles that give you you the chance to absorb new abilities and become more adept at fighting tougher enemies.

You can then build and change alien DNA chains to improve different abilities like harvested energy from the bodies of defeated enemies, increased regeneration rate, enhanced vision or develop physical manifestations with access to energy weapons and sharp claws.
