it sounds as if they are describing a Praetorian,

True, it sounded like that to me, too.

I bet Fox'd still have the sound effects. They did provide a load of original Alien sound FX for AvPR after all.

They do.

Then they shouldn't use words like rhino and bull.

Hopefully this is simply journalism fail ala ME3.

I'm guessing this is the new creature the previews mentioned:



Could be a Praetorian.

Certainly sounds it. None of the GBX folk are quoted as calling it a rhino or a bull. IIRC the Praetorian in AvP1/Gold was mostly on four legs and it had a crest.

They did.

I haven't seen GBX folks mention it anywhere so far.

As for the praetorians we've already seen, in AvP2 they were on two legs and could pounce (at first), in AvP3 they were on two legs and sprinting of four, but a praetorian never used his head to ram into stuff, that's why the rhino/bull resemblance.

About that Praetorian thingy:

QuoteThe bug grabbed the soldier and devoured him into its gapping maw.

Eating Aliens? WTF? Please...

Space Sweeper

Just a journalist that doesn't know that Aliens don't "eat" people.

Another source just said it was the inner jaw coming out at the camera/player's POV.

QuoteA much larger ferocious and huge bull alien was among the pack. Its head was large and patterned similar to a queen's, but also extremely well armored. No amount of simple Weyland-Yutani bullets would penetrate shielding that tough. The marine didn't delay and quickly dashed into a well reinforced building and behind an enforced blast door. He traveled down the path and met with several more of his military chums. However there was something special about one of them.

Sounds like a Praetorian to me.

I don't think Praetorian is a "new creature"

It could be a Space Jockey Alien

Given that we've never seen it in motion, a SJ doesn't look anything like a bull and doesn't walk on 4.
