Aliens vs Predator is an entirely new title for PC and high-definition consoles from acclaimed British developer Rebellion, the team behind the 1999 original PC gaming classic. Bringing the most intense war between two of science-fiction’s most popular characters FPS fans, AvP delivers three outstanding single player campaigns and provides untold hours of unique 3-way multiplayer gaming. Experience distinctly new and thrilling first person gameplay as you survive, hunt and prey in the deadly jungles and swamps surrounding the damned colony of Freya’s Prospect.
- As the Marine, you’ll experience a claustrophobic and terrifying experience where light is your friend, but there’s never enough. However, the United States Marine Corps are humanity’s last line of defence, and as such they are armed to the teeth with the very latest in high explosive and automatic weaponry.
- As the Predator, you will stalk from the shadows and from above, passing athletically through the treetops to ambush your victims. Although equipped with an array of powerful, exotic weapons and tracking equipment, honour ultimately dictates that you must get in close and take your trophies face to face.
- As the most deadly species in the universe, the Alien offers you the chance to play as the very stuff of nightmares – the monster in the dark swarming forward with countless others, jaws like a steel trap and claws like blades.
- Play all sides off against each other in a series of unique 3-way online modes and go tooth-to-claw-to-pulse rifle in the reinvention of one of multiplayer gaming’s defining moments.
Aliens vs Predator received mixed reviews from critics when it was first released. It scored between 6-8 / 10 in most online reviews. General criticism was aimed at how the game wasn’t very innovative and that little had changed since AvP1 and AvP2 had been released over ten years earlier. Reviewers generally liked the three very different campaign styles as you could play as a Marine, Alien and a Predator and the story intertwined with each other.
In terms of sales, Aliens vs Predator had sold 2.19 million copies worldwide as of December 14, 2013. In the UK, it debuted at number one in the All Formats chart and it generated over £14 million in the UK, making the best selling Aliens game of all time.
The first map pack was called Swarm and was released in March 2010 and the second map pack was called Bughunt and that was released in July 2010. Both packs provide new multiplayer and survivor maps.
