Play involves creating your character and then teaming up with two other people to take on the horror-survival missions. If you don't want to play with other people (friends or strangers) you can opt for two computer-controlled partners instead.
You can choose between five types of characters (Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc, and Recon) and need to play each differently if your team is going to survive. Together you work through four campaigns with three missions each. As you progress things get more difficult with friendly fire, more classes of aliens and larger levels. Between missions, you can customise and progress your character.
