Online AvP2 Comes To An End

Despite its age Serria’s Aliens vs Predator 2 for the PC has been running strong since its release and is still receiving no end of updates and mods from the fanbase. It has simply been keeping the gaming fanbase alive. Until now:

“Sierra, now part of the vast Activision Blizzard group, have revealed that they are to close 21 game servers come the 1st of November. Most of the games losing online support are pretty ancient anyway, so we imagine only a few will be put out – Sierra offering no explanation for the cessation of service.”

And the first game on that list is Aliens vs Predator 2. The 21st of November will be a closing chapter for the fandom and this site (it was initially created as a fansite for the game). I can only hope we’ll be seeing a new PC AvP game and that the upcoming Aliens games will be fantastic. For the rest of the games being axed go to Play.tm. Thanks to Harry for the news.

     No, I'm saying that it's a sad moment 'cause the site was created as a site to support the game. AvPGalaxy.net is going nowhere and it's a silly assumption to make.

    Man, that was my 2nd favorite computer game to play.   :'(   I hope they make a completly NEW kinda AVP game or something like that?!.   ???

    then i go on here and it says they gona shut it down?  no sierras shutting down their server,people still make there own servers , how many more time,s do we have to repeat ourselves  for all the people who dont understand how online games work   1. companys make a few public servers when the game is in infancy  they usualy get rid of these when they see popularity failing or the game has gotten old  so you realy think steam owns over a thousand servers think of the vast majority are publicly owned 2.those who wish to run non standard servers or have control of the idiots (ie able to kick without a vote system or run clan ladder matche,s)and gameplay create their own .thus either renting a server or using a spare server orientated system from home  hope this clarifys the issue   again !!!all sierra are doing is not giving support to said games in the list or having a public server so expect no patches  or even a sierra server  the game will still work online and in lan just as avp still works

    wonders if downloadable trial version online multiplayer will be scrapped as well  yep that will go as its part of the sierra service and you cant play it online with full copy versions
  16. konradski
    There doing it because of the new AVP3 game  dont talk bollox !! read the sierra report before spouting inane tripe   like many other games online theve decided to call it a day with   ONLINE SUPPORT  same goes for crysis they no longer make patche,s for that NEW GAME and other games have had this and most are still online. like the avp galaxy community there are those in the game communitys who keep their favorite,s alive  this dosent mean the dedicated avp2 groups will suddenly turn their private servers off because sierra do  the avp community have been moding and running there own ship for donkeys without sierra so i dont for see any great impact on service although acid glow and the others have moved away from the scene some time ago and add ons are scarce with people using models in other games like steam source engine , on the zombie servers (there,s a server running alien models only,, think their spanish)
  17. konradski
    what are half of u on about . it just means you,ll have to play on clan servers or those who have created a server(on todays system setting your own up take no time at all even non dedicated ones .  for which most of you do anyway u just dont realise it,,dont think since owning the game all these years ive ever played on a sierra servers (they didnt used to have molting enabled or power loader , + there never watched or admined  = waste of time playing as the hacks just play em
  18. MrFacehug
    Damn, this sucks. I love playing online with AvP2.    :(    They have to make another AvP game for PC and include online play. I thinkg both fans and the general public would appreciate it.
  19. AVP Torrent
    wow good thing I d/l'ed the torrent and played online while I could lol. I got my satisfaction ^_^  and btw there is another avp game coming out anyways not sure if it relates to movie or not.
  20. Riptr2
    I've not played AvP2 that much, but when I do play the multiplayer aspect: it is fairly fun.  It's a shame to see such a good game go, but I guess Aliens: Colonial Marines will be a good "substitute" until (if/when) AvP 3 comes around.
  21. Bio Mech Hunter
    Wow. I had no idea they've still been running those old servers. lol I've been playing the AJL mod for years now (for a far more realistic and accurate AVP experience   ;)  ), so I'm not too bummed.  Still this is kinda sad. *recalls the good ol' days* Now. If only they'd get off their lazy, ignorant asses and recognize fans having been chomping at the bit to get a proper 3rd AVP installment for the PC for a very long time. It's been about 8 freak'n years already! Today's tech would work wonders for the franchise. Aliens: Colonial Marines looks like a great example.
