Holy corroded metal from alien acid blood, Batman! This is one of the biggest mods ever for a game and it's now available...for free. The game clocks in at a modest 242 megabytes, or a quarter of a gigabyte for you new-school gamers, and packs a massive punch by delivering Aliens-themed zeds and all your favorite weapons from the sci-fi horror franchise.
Given that this kind of news is rocket busting and a bit bigger than what most gamers' brains can handle, the designers released a video gameplay trailer so you have an idea of what the mod looks like in action and you can check it out below.

Pretty impressive, yeah?
I'm shocked these guys managed to get their mod finished before Fox Interactive hit them with a cease & desist. That's some slick stuff right there, especially given the proximity of release to Gearbox and Sega's Aliens: Colonial Marines, which is due out for home consoles and PC this March.
If you wanted to experience the thrills of Aliens in an intense, survival-style atmosphere then you'll definitely get a kick out of Aliens: Killing Floor. You will, however, need a full working rendition of Killing Floor to make the mod work. Thankfully, Steam is always having sales for the game so it shouldn't be too tough to grab a copy for cheap sometime soon.
You can download the total conversion mod right now from ModDB while you ponder on the purchasing plan for Killing Floor.
