Seen on a couple of retailer websites, but doesn't look like Upper Deck has actually announced anything. Has been around since March, I think, but not really talked about.

One thing is for sure, they are coming and they’ll keep coming — complete the mission and evacuate the complex, because these Xenomorphs converging from every direction are heartless, smart, relentless and hungry. Every role is critical as players rely on each other to cover their six and make it out alive. Private Hudson might ask if this is a stand up fight or just another bug hunt; the real question is who’s hunting who? This is Aliens: Bug Hunt!

Looks amazing! I am in for sure since games, books and trading cards are my main interest in AvP collecting  ;D

I've pre-ordered it, but honestly not really sure what to expect. Upper Deck does make some use out of the license, but I wish they'd do a better job of marketing and distributing their stuff.

I saw this for pre-order and confused it for Glorious Day in the Corp. I'll have another look now.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly. Compared to most of the life of the A & P series, the last five years have had a ton of stuff as far as games and trading cards if you think about it. There has been the Legendary Encounters game/expansion, the VS game, CLUE, Yahtzee, the Prodos Minis game, the Alien RPG, the Glorious Day in the Corps game, this dice game, and several trading card sets. While not all are from Upper Deck, it seems most of them could have been handled better as far as marketing and distribution. But at least there is a lot of new and varied content so I guess we will just have to deal with the frustrations  ::)

Here is a video from the recent Gen Con online that is posted over at BoardGameGeek site: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/video/279498/aliens-bug-hunt/aliens-bug-hunt-game-preview-gen-con-online-2020

It shows a little bit of gameplay and some commentary from a few guys at Upper Deck. Looks like it could be an interesting take on the franchise. A little bit of simpler/shorter type of tabletop style than the Prodos minis game which would be better for me and my players  ;D
