Alien vs Predator Coming to Facebook Game

It appears AvP will be soon invading Facebook. 20th Century Fox have licensed the Alien vs Predator franchise to a Israeli social/mobile game developer called Plarium who plan to feature the two titular characters in its Soldiers Inc. multiplayer game on Facebook. Soliders Inc. was launched in August 2013 and has a total of 86 million players. It’s a sort of strategy game set in the republic of Zandia where players try to find minerals and resources. Alien and Predator will feature in the game but it will be a separate experience with various story and side missions to complete

In the “Soldiers Inc.” Facebook game, the “Alien vs. Predator” characters will be used as an entirely separate experience from the original game: Players must investigate a temple of unknown origin and extract assets before a thermonuclear detonation. Gameplay features will include a multi-mission story arc, a series of global missions, side missions, special reward units, collectable in-game items and boosts themed around “Alien vs. Predator.”

    A lot of the focus is on the first AvP film.

    I figured that much when I saw the pyramids and such... But looking at the tags on the Queen... I see a Weyland Corp logo.

    The alien units say how a "heat bloom" somewhere in Nambia lead to a temple and the eggs were found there alongside some Predator tech which are usually called "artefacts".

    A temple in Nambia... What? Well... definitely seems to take inspiration from the first AVP.

    I haven't seen any mention of "Predators" mythos.

    Good.

    I know, that kinda put me off.

    Agreed.. I almost want to say they shouldn't really have bothered.

    I mean, it made sense with the Aliens to an extent considering some of the stories in the EU.

    Which usually doesn't turn out so well for people who attempt to do that. Usually but in some cases.. well that control usually is on a very, very, very tight leash so to speak. Also Resurrection attempted to do that, so in the Aliens case.. it does make sense.. Now Predators on the other hand...

    But cloned Predators to be your attack dogs? Nah... especially not an "Ancient"... no way.

    No way Predators would willingly serve as someone's attack dog. Especially not humans. And when other Predators find out about that, they would see it as an affront and attempt by any means necessary. In the case of an Elder being cloned: "OH HELL NAW!"


    I mean, I can understand if the story was a bit different, saying something along the lines of "the Yautja clan has deemed us worthy to hunt Aliens alongside them to test our skills", even something like that would've been fine.

    Agreed.

    I do like the artwork of the characters though, really well done. The Ancient looks badass and also the descriptions are very good. You get to read an autopsy report on Peter Keyes as well in one of the descriptions for Predator units.

    I'm surprised that something from Predator 2 was mentioned.. is anything from.. ugh.. Rodriguez's PREDATORS even mentioned or shown in this? More or less, I know that there are some elements of AVP in there but are they going along with the continuity of that movie or is all that.. Prometheus schlock they're going with? Cause I'd really like it if they just went with either Weyland Industries or Weyland Yutani.. Not Weyland Corp.

    Also agreed about the artwork... It does look really awesome!

    Also, it's a shame that this isn't an official AvP game but just an event of a different game that lasts 90 days.

    Plus you're not even really using real Aliens or Predators... just clones who are more or less "programmed" to work one another and are more or less tamed attack dogs than anything else.

    I know, that kinda put me off.

    Plus the Ancient's Xenomorph skull wrist gauntlet looks pretty badass in the artwork for the unit.

    I still haven't got to doing the AvP quest due to all the bloody tutorials though, there's loads!  >:( You could make a game with just the tutorials...

    I wonder if it will follow more the AvP films or the Prometheus idea like a lot of the new stuff is doing.

    I'm playing the game now and from the lore I am reading in the black market for the units, it seems to be set in the 21st century somewhere in Africa (called "Zandia")

    There's a lot of mention of "Weyland Corp" so no Weyland-Yutani here, it's set around 2021 from what I am reading. So the Weyland Corp may be the only Prometheus link.
