Aliens versus Predator 2 is a first-person shooter computer game developed by Monolith Productions. It was published by Sierra Entertainment, and released through Fox Interactive for PC in 2001. It is a sequel to Aliens versus Predator (1999); both games are based on the characters of the Alien and Predator media franchises as well as the Alien vs. Predator crossover series. An expansion pack titled Aliens versus Predator 2: Primal Hunt was released in 2002.

AvP2 Reception

Aliens versus Predator 2 was generally very well received by critics and generally scored 8-9/10 in online reviews. Critics liked the overlapping campaigns and the variety of playing as a Marine, Alien or a Predator. Some criticism was aimed at how buggy the game was… AI characters getting stuck in the environment and so forth.

  • Aliens vs. Predator 2 was strongly rumoured to appear on PS2 back in 2000. Fox announced the game for next generation platforms but was only released on PC. I’m guessing the cancelled game Aliens: Colonial Marines probably had something to do with this too.

AvP2 Primal Hunt

 Aliens versus Predator 2 (PC)

Released: August 2002
Publisher: Sierra Studios / Fox Interactive
Developer: Third Law Entertainment
Formats: PC
Genre: First-Person-Shooter

An expansion pack to Aliens versus Predator 2, titled Aliens versus Predator 2: Primal Hunt, was developed by Third Law Entertainment, published by Sierra Entertainment, and released through Fox Interactive in 2002. It was also included in the “Gold Edition” of Aliens versus Predator 2 released the same year, which bundled the original game and the expansion pack into a single package. Primal Hunt adds new weapons and multiplayer maps to the original game, as well as a single-player campaign which serves as a prequel to the storyline of Aliens versus Predator 2.


On a routine hunt on Planet LV1201 a lone Predator finds a mysterious Artifact with the power to keep the savage Aliens at bay, and as legend has it, even control their minds. The Predator triggers a stasis field, trapping him for 500 years until Dunya, a human Corporate mercenary, unwittingly frees him and escapes with the Artifact. Meanwhile, a lone PredAlien seeks to destroy the Artifact to preserve the sanctity of the Hive. Now the hunt is on to retrieve the mystical Artifact before Dunya escapes back to safety.


  • As this new interlocking story unfolds, play as Dunya, the Corporate mercenary, the 500-year-old Predator, or the lethal hybrid, PredAlien.
  • Choose from an arsenal of new weapons as well as all your old favorites. Mutilate your enemies with dual pistols, turret guns, and deployable sentry guns. For extra carnage, kill with the newly added Predator Energy Flechette.
  • Explore never-before-seen Predator ruins as you make your way through 9 new single-player missions and 4 new multi-player levels where you’ll get acquainted with new breeds of vile creatures on their own mission to stop you dead in your tracks.

  1. Still thankfully working on Windows 10. But would love to see it make a come back. One of the best Aliens games without a doubt

  2. Yeah, I really wish some group like GOG or NightDive could resurrect this gem, considering the problems that can crop up running AVP2 on today’s machines… just getting the thing to run in widescreen is a major pain.

    I do wonder why this isn’t available digitally, and it’s long been “out of print” physically. Even if Monolith got bought out by a company that got bought out by Warner Bros. you would think Fox would still own the rights, being the original licensor. It’s like how the Dino Crisis games are unavailable in UK / EU because they were originally published by the now techically defunct Virgin Interactive… you’d think CAPCOM would be well within their jurisdiction to re-release them, but the rights must be in some sort of limbo and I imagine it’s the same for AVP2, bureaucratic bullcrap getting in the way.

  3. Better than all the movies put together. Love this game so much. Stellar story, amazing locations, excellent detail. AvP 2 is perfection.

    Someone should re-release this classic or make an HD remake in the style of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, where you could switch between Classic and Remastered graphics. This masterpiece deserves that treatment.

  4. Greatest installment of the entire series (also included it’s expansion “Primal Hunt”), absolute perfection. There’s something in this game for fans of all ten Aliens/Predator films, even Prometheus with the exploration of the Engineer ruins. 100/10

    Thank you Monolith.

  5. this game was the best it is what avp suppose to be and true to the classic films not the recent fails for a quick buck. they need to use this as a template reboot it with a better engine and with more variety of in depth game play and story that takes place at the end of avp two. monolith did the best with avp. it was pc only and could customize skins maps mods etc to player liking was awsome and fun.. never a dull moment for years. and preds have one wrist blade only!!! classes were great in mp
