The year is 2463 AD. Over the past 500 years mankind has been expanding into deep space. All of the planets that could be were turned into habitable places. However, some planets that are so far from Earth are strictly used for industrial resources and therefore only contain a few humans. While man believed he was alone in the universe...he was wrong. Now, the Charva have made their existence known.
Charva are an alien race that breath oxygen just as man does, but they can also survive in other gases for short periods of time. They possess intelligence and greater space travel technology than mankind. Slightly taller than a human, Charva contain tough, leathery skin. Some of them are also equipped with battle suits that the Earth soldiers call Krulgan Hulks. Poor eyesight is about the only weakness of Charva.
The Charva will stop at nothing until the entire human race is destroyed or enslaved. Mankind's last hope are the "Expendables." These soldiers are genetically bred and hatched from eggs for one purpose and one purpose only: destroy anything and everything that is a threat to their race. Expendable is all about destruction and killing everything in sight. Players are to travel to alien filled planets and unleash their destructive abilities in hopes of saving their people.
Not so different from Contra: The Legacy of War, this game provides a third-person view and allows two players to team up and blast the enemy together. Level environments are sci-fi based alien worlds and contain occassional cut scenes. Players begin the game with a pulse cannon but can find up to 17 other weapons throughout the 20+ levels, some of which include: a flamethrower, shotgun, multiple warhead rockets, heatseeking missles, and laser guided missles. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
