Sega decided to offer the world some new details about the upcoming Aliens vs. Predator game (even though this is just a working title and the final product will have a more original name). Among the things we were told, we can count three main characters and not two as the title suggests (Colonial Marine, Alien and Predator) and we can also count on Rebellion now for developing the title.
Also, the game will feature a three-way online multiplayer mode, allowing gamers to battle for survival as any of the three races. Each race will also have its own distinct single-player campaign mode, with a storyline that cleverly interweaves with the other two species’ paths – and this should mean “more gameplay time for us”.
This new Aliens vs. Predator game will be set on planet BG-386, where a group of human colonists trigger a horrible event after they discover an ancient pyramid. The Colonial Marine’s story is an incredible fight against all odds from horrors lurking in the dark. Surrounded on all sides yet armed to the teeth, the Colonial Marine represents humanity’s last stand with the firepower to fight back – and usually the worst choice of a character…
As the Alien, players will discover what it’s like to be the scariest, most murderous creature in the universe, with the ability to traverse any surface at lightning speed in order to get close enough to unleash its deadly claws, tail and teeth.
A master of the hunt, the Predator grants the player an arsenal of exotic weaponry with which to stalk from the shadows. Earn the greatest honor by ambushing prey up-close, before butchering them for a gory trophy kill.
The game is set to be released in 2010 so, no matter how excited you are, we still have a long time to wait.
