Ten years ago, Rebellion surprised PC gamers with a stellar first-person shooter based on the Alien and Predator franchises. Rebellion spent the next decade making a string of mediocre shooters that paled in comparison to its most notable work. But the UK developer is hoping to reclaim some of its notoriety with a return to the franchise that put them on the map. Along with SEGA, Rebellion is "rebooting" Aliens vs. Predator for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
The basic concept remains the same. Aliens, a Predator and a number of Colonial Marines are mixing it up and you have the opportunity to play as each faction. This time around, there is a strict linear story which plays out Call of Duty style, switching between perspectives after each level. One of the Predator's holy temples has been defiled by the Marines, who in turn have accidentally awakened the ancient Alien Queen living in it bowels. The first batch of "junior" predators storm in and get slaughtered by the Aliens. And thus, one of the elite alien-hunting Predators is sent in to clean up the mess.
Yeah but your blood hurt people also you could see predators when they were invisible making the cloaking device useless.
Marines were awesome if you had the friends to back you up.
By now, I'm expecting you to be up to date on Alien vs. Predator. It's a first-person action game, you play from three perspectives (Alien/Predator/space marine), and it's set about 30 years after the events of Alien 3.
Got it? Good. Let's get to the grisly deaths.
Australia, December 17, 2009 - SEGA Australia today confirmed that Aliens vs. Predator will be seeing an Australian release, as the Australian Classification Review Board has overturned the original decision to Refuse Classification for the game and has given it an MA15+ rating. With no cuts made.
So which do you fancy? The standard is just the game, while the Survivor Edition comes in a steel case and has post-launch multiplayer DLC. The Hunter Edition includes said DLC but also a facehugger, a Weyland Yutani sleeve badge and a 3D postcard.
