Game Update 6: Initiating Team Domination

The brand new Team Domination game mode and the first multiplayer version of Martin Jonsson's unique multi-levelled map are the headlines in this feature-packed Interstellar Marines update.

The Team Domination game mode, along with a reduction in run speed and an increase in spawn time, all combine to make the gameplay more tactical and cooperative. With the new scoring system not only do you gain points for kill shots, you also gain points for capturing - helping your team and denying the enemy!

Congrats on more significant progress. Ah, its been awhile since I've seen a good sci-fi alien FPS. I like the catering towards more types of players. Honestly more progress on the campaign would be wet my appetite more :P
