Original AvP Coming to Steam

Rebellion is apparently releasing the original 1999 Aliens vs Predator game to Steam at a budget price according to IGN. The game will ship with singleplayer but multiplayer will be activated soon after it’s been released.

Initially the game will ship with the single-player mode only with a free patch that enables multiplayer following soon after. Rebellion’s CEO Jason Kingsley said that Aliens vs. Predator’s budget price will reflect this, telling IGN “It’ll be very cheap – and it shows it’s age a little bit, but it is frightening and it is difficult. We will in due course fix up the multiplayer – and we’ll make sure it’s a free download.”

There are currently no plans to bring the game to Xbox Live Arcade or PlayStation Network. Thanks to Ikarop and Chris for the news.

    I couldn't have been happier with this. It really upset me that I couldn't play the original game from disc when I got Windows Vista. For me this is truly a godsend - and at £3, it was worth it   :)    Thank you, Steam!

    Presumably they'll be patching this so that it works correctly on XP/Vista/Windows7... In which case I think it's only fair they release a patch for all those loyal fans who bought the game years ago and would still like to play it properly.
