Valve Releases Alien Swarm For Free

"A previous UT2004 mod redone with the Source engine makes its way onto Steam."

Search News

Six years ago, developer Black Cat Games created the Alien Swarm mod for Unreal Tournament 2004. Critically acclaimed and named Mod of the Year 2004 by Gamespy, Alien Swarm puts players in the role of an Interstellar Armed Forces squad commander whose duty is to navigate various colonies and space ships, exterminating alien infestations. Four years later, the team was hired by Valve and has since worked on the likes of Left4Dead and Portal 2. However, the team has not forgotten its roots.

Today, the Alien Swarm mod has been released as a standalone game, redone using the Source engine. Best of all, it’s free. The release includes all of the tools needed for users to make mods of their own, such as Source SDK updates and full Steamworks integration. Part of the intention, it seems, is to help provide would-be modders direction for creating and releasing their own work using the Steamworks system.

They already have Corsair sleeving, which is really high quality, the only reason to change the sleeving is if you want to put UV ones. So don't bother :P

I'm gonna build a new rig soon and I've thought the Corsair AX850, and I wanna do a nice job by sleeving each wire individually. But those capacitors or things at the end of the PCI-E cable looks to be a problem.

Or am I wrong?

Geez. That's a great PSU. I bet you could do quad 580s on that. Maybe a little OC, probably none though. 976W GPUs (4 x 244W) alone is crazy. I kinda want one now.

Awesome PSU and Review.

Being a 1200AX and 850AX owner i can honestly say this is one of the best items to get with a new system.. Think how stable and clean your power will be to help you get everything overclocked :lol:
