This is a thread to share and talk about game ideas for the Alien, Predator and AVP licenses.

I'll start the ball rolling by sharing my idea for a team-based Asymmetric Multiplayer first person shooter Aliens vs. Predator game inspired by Overwatch. Now we have had various iterations of this with the online aspect of games such as Aliens versus Predator 2, AVP 2010 and A:CM but I'm talking about a game that focuses on balanced strategic online gameplay.

Matches would start by assigning you to one of three teams of 5. Each team is a set faction (Alien, Predator, or Human) and has a roster of 10 characters each with a unique style of play whose roles differ depending on faction and the character chosen within the team. The roster for Aliens would include Drone (fast, stealthy, best wall-crawling and ability to pounce), Warrior (similar to Drone but slower, tougher and deals more damage), Runner (faster but weaker than Drone, ability to acid-spit), Praetorian (slower, tougher and deals more damage than Warrior), Predalien (stats between Warrior and Praetorian) and other unique castes such as Carrier, Ravager, Crusher and Boiler with their respective unique abilities. The Predator roster would contain unique Hunters that specialize in different weapons but also use a combination of different gadgets. A Jungle Hunter that focuses on camouflaged kills with the plasma caster and wrist blades. A City Hunter with netgun, smart-disc and spear. A heavy Predator with more health but slower movements. The list could really go on for different Predator classes with all their technologies and weaponry available. Of course Humans would have someone who focuses on the Pulse Rifle, A smart-gunner, An android (that doesn't show up in Alien and Predator visions) and support roles with abilities such as hacking consoles to cause environmental changes, door welders and sentry turret placements. This universe has so much potential to make some really cool classes and make for some really fun asymmetrical gameplay. Like Overwatch players on a team work together to secure and defend control points on a map or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time.

Players gain cosmetic rewards that do not affect gameplay, such as Predator masks & weapons skins unique to their respective class, skins that reference previous movies and games such as Grid Alien and armor & weapons for Humans characters, as they play the game.

An android could take on the role of healer/medtech as well. That makes them valuable, but it could also mean they're almost defenseless and need to be trailed by a rifleman at all times. Would make things interesting.

Yes exactly, things like this that force you to work as a team if you wish to survive and win the match.

The Aliens and Preds can use that class, too. It'd be cool to see what a healer Alien/Predator look like.

I always wanted a Planetside 1 stylization of Colonial Marines. Custom character, expanded weapons, RPG like skill system, various planets and stations to deploy to. Aliens rely on stealth and capture (But can still respawn. Tickets raise for captured marines and thus = more Bots). Marines get various objectives and will require teamwork since going solo around xenos = instadeath unless you're Ellen Ripley (Or Amanda).  Vehicles for the marines of course, but are capable of being climbed on, and taking acid damage (And you wouldn't wanna use the weapons around objective as I'd like to see things you need to protect/fix and allies take FF dmg which can lead to failure and allow the aliens to get a boost in the zone. And killing too many allies = 1 day ban from the game :) ).

So that's my ideal idea for a Online Colonial Marine shooter. Hell, even let players play as Aliens and start from facehugger and rank your way up. Three Highest ranked people get's to be a Praetorians.


My ideal single player would be the canned Aliens: Crucible game that Obsidian was working on but got slapped aside for........ A:CM.....

It should be like star citizen in some ways (star citizen is a space sim if you dont know). It only needs 3 systems but I would settle for one good system with DLC that you should pay for if the game is made right and fun to play.

This game would be massive multiplayer/mmo. So you can have a clan of 20 predators (mix of AI and real people online). Start out picking a class Royalty Yautja, Pure blood Yautja, Bad blood Yautja. Royalty and Pure become blooded elders at max level. Bad blood becomes a customized Ultimate/Assassin predator like in The Predator film.

1st system has 2 or 3 planets each with a moon or no moon at all doesnt matter. On the planets are primative alien species with near superhuman strength and the intelligence of a dog or monkeys no civilizations. Just wild dangerous alien creatures. Volcanoes different biomes etc. Some areas should spawn hard to kill bosses/monsters that add replay for higher rank predators to return to this planet later. Maybe the next planet has Avatar like indigenous life with mayan like cities etc. You can slay kings and be worshipped and own the cities returning to reclaim and hunt later.

2nd system has humans and this is set in the future so the colonial marines are on the scene. even if the second system only has 1 planet EARTH or earthlike that is fine. This is where the action and comic lore comes to play. Its a full scale planet with cities and secret military bases/WY bases scattered about. Predators can take xenomorphs from the 3rd system harvest on their clan ships and deploy them onto the planets to be hunted. I would say only the clan that has the most trophies can build a queen xeno chamber in their ship. Keeping the galaxy at peace. Imagine if every clan on the server of 100 (hopefully 300). Were populatiing planets with xenomorphs XD.

3rd system has 3 planets. A planet colonized by engineers, a planet overrun with xenomorphs and a planet run by predators.

With the exception of the 1st system a clan of 20 predators will never dominate any planet even if all players worked together they would be nuked or overtaken. The human planet will send hundreds of military ships to destroy a concentrated effort to kill everyone in site.

To take away some of the ambition of this idea make only 3 planets that require hyper drive to travel to. 1 with avatar like life on it. 2nd with humans. the 3rd with just xenomorphs but you cant go in a hive and capture an alien queen to spread the infestation and hunt hybrid type xenos on other planets.

IF any game developers could make this game and allow us to play as humans or xenos i would be beyond impressed. But i really think the immersion of traveling space from planet to planet as a predator clan you created would be awesome. Just simply landing on the planet and hiding your ship in a forest venturing to a civilzation with squad mates and coming back to mount on the trophy wall in the ship then taking off to another planet would make an awesome experience. Make a hunter who wants to join your elder clan prove him or herself. Put them in the drop pod and dump them on the planet. Monitor their hunt and make them call to space to be picked up after taking a very dangerous trophy. siccccck

As bad blood you can hunt ANYTHING. even board normal yautja ships slay the clan leader and steal the ship...fukn kooool
