Scourge: Outbreak has hit the Xbox Live Arcade today, bringing with it some sci-fi flavoured squad-based third-person shooter action with a gritty, futuristic edge. The Unreal Engine 3 shooter has you playing as the veteran mercs of Echo Squad battling their enemies, the Nogari Corporation, in a mission to rescue a double agent from behind enemy lines.
You'll also have to recover a mysterious meteorite fragment from the Nogari, while discovering the truth behind their 'Ambrosia Fuel Technology' and whether it's causing deadly plagues. During the 6+ hour campaign, which features 4-player co-op with four distinct characters, Echo Squad must bring the Nogari Corporation to its knees.
Scourge: Outbreak also has 8-player competitive multiplayer modes including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and CTF, with nine weapons and numerous variants, and five close-quarters maps. Scourge: Outbreak is available to download from XBLA now for 800 Microsoft Points. Check out the new co-op trailer and screens below.
