We've been given the opportunity to do a text based Q&A with Cold Iron. As always, just wanted to open it up to the floor for members of the AvP Galaxy community to post any questions they might have and any we have missed and think could elicit some interesting answers from, we'll include in our questions. Let's see them!

 It just seems to me that many ask questions you know we are never going to get asnwers to like 'will there be x in the future', etc. So how about I ask about their development?
How many persons worked on the alien/FT/environment models and what kind of workflow do they have for that? Was there conceptual art made (apart from what we've already seen of the Enveavor crew) and can we see some more?
How was animation done? Motion capture or frame by frame?
We've heard a lot of soundtracks and sound effects but not so much about their visual creative development and artists at work.
I think they should also cover that in a video one day, so my question is ...."can we get a video on that, please!".

There are lots of stories of games and literature being restricted to certain film licenses within a franchise - someone being told you can only mention things in Aliens, not the other movies, for example. Was there any challenge to being able to use material from Covenant through to Alien 3? Does the Engineer stuff done from Covenant or were you able to use Prometheus material? Or was it just open slather?

The game uses Unreal Engine 4, so how about releasing an SDK so fans can get creative and we make our own content?

Will we get to see a mode where you can play as aliens? Since the game is similar to L4D, I am sure it could be super fun to operate as aliens, as you could play as a zombie in l4d. Also, have you thought about slightly more complex maps where you have, let's say a complex similar to Hadley's Hope, and multiple ways of reaching an objective. So, say hacking a few doors, climbing through vents, etc. Thanks.

I have no serious questions that they'll answer, so...

Can you give the welder on the Endeavor some goggles? And can you give the guard outside the Combat Information Center some ammo?

We got one. It's scripted. No you can't claim a trophy for your predator wall. This is Aliens. The Queen always wins....or at least it survives in outer space.

Not needed. We had plenty from the old games.  :laugh:


I think I asked this before but any chance there would be a mode where you can play as the Alien? Ideally the drone/warrior.
And will be more lore added to the game and bestiaries so that we can read up on fauna/flora.

I would love to see this game rehash something people came up with in the 90s. Then they could redesign AFTE from the ground up and rename it too! I also want mod tools! So we can proliferate low poly models and texture painting skills because all of us are so good at it.

Most of these questions will all get the same answer I'm afraid. :-/
