Alien Front Online is a Dreamcast video game originally released for the console in 2001.
In the game, players use armored vehicles to fight battles staged in arenas. Players could choose which side they wished to fight for, the aliens or the humans, and could also choose one of three different vehicles; each having its own advantages and disadvantages. Although the game was fully playable for one person, it was primarily designed as an online game in which up to 8 players (up to 4 on each side) could play. Players move around the arena attempting to shoot each other, while also looking for power-ups for their vehicles. Typically, the game was played for a set number of minutes, after which the team with the most kills would be declared the winners. If you were killed while playing the game, you simply respawn.
Alien Front Online came out six months after Sega officially stopped supporting the Dreamcast. Shortly after the game's release, Sega moved from free online servers used to play the game to a pay model causing a tremendous shrinkage in the player base. Soon after, the Dreamcast's online servers were taken down permanently and the online play was removed.
Alien Front Online was one of the first video games to feature online voice chat.
