Get Alien Swarm for Free, Receive Free Hat in Team Fortress 2!

July 20, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Valve have a long-running history of adopting neat community creations and helping them develop into full-blown games. Alien Swarm is the most recent example of this – a game which started out as a free mod for Unreal Tournament, and is now a complete game running on the Source Engine and being distributed through Steam – for free!

That’s right, it’s not even a special promotion – the game is 100% free to play, including a powerful SDK that is even more advanced than Valve’s own in some aspects. And for those of you waiting to see how Portal 2 will look like, this is a pretty good preview, as the game is actually running on the Portal 2 build of the engine.

Last but not least, to help promote the game, Valve have included a new, parasite hat in their Team Fortress 2 – to get it, you’ll need to play Alien Swarm and complete at least two co-operative missions. So what are you waiting for? The game is a blast, it costs nothing, and there are already thousands of players in – go get it!
