Lambda Wars (formerly Half-Life 2: Wars) brings the struggle between the human resistance and their Combine overlords to a multiplayer real-time strategy setting. The Lambda Wars beta only requires Alien Swarm installed to play. It features 3 multiplayer game modes: Sandbox, Annihilation and Overrun, showcasing the Rebels and Combine playable factions and a full-fledged RTS interface and HUD. There is also a singleplayer tutorial and a handful of singleplayer missions.

This is awesome! But I wonder what happen if enemy will stand on the hill and try to ambush us. Will we see him if he will be really close to the edge?

Good point, right now you won't be able to see the enemy. But this could be improved of course (if needed).

I think if an enemy's firing at you, it should be like out it is in SC2. That unit won't be attackable unless you spot him first but you will see him for a few seconds as he keeps attacking along the ridge.

Briefly put: your units are alerted to what's firing at them, but they cannot attack. This could be just one system of doing it though.
