Nuclear Wasteland and End of Days: Infected vs. Mercs developer Sick Kreations is putting the finishing touches on Aliens vs Romans, a slick-looking competitive first-person shooter for the Xbox Live Indie Games service.

Aliens vs Romans pits sword-wielding Roman soldiers against heavily armed alien forces in a series of single-player, cooperative, and competitive online multiplayer gameplay modes. Sick Kreations' previous titles ranked among Xbox Live's biggest-selling indie games in 2011 and 2012, and judging from the footage above, Aliens vs Romans looks like it will be a worthy follow-up.

Aliens vs Romans is currently in peer review, and Sick Kreations notes that XBLIG fans can expect to see a public release "very soon."
