I know that lots of you are excited about Aliens vs. Predator, so here’s the lowdown on what we’re showing and talking about in the booth.
You can play as the Colonial Marine, Alien or Predator in the game. Each of these are different single-player campaigns that intersect and interweave at different points through the game. You can use any of these factions as you play with online multi-player.
The Predator is the master of stealth. You’ll have several different vision modes to help you locate your prey. You can also use the Predator’s cloaking ability to stay hidden and sneak in a gruesome trophy kill. Trophy kills involve using your writs blades to rip the spine and head out of an unsuspecting enemy. You can also use the plasma caster to take out long-range targets.
The Alien is the ultimate instinctual killing machine, and you have methods you can use to maim and kill. The Alien can crawl anywhere in the game, including walls, ceilings, up trees, etc. This allows you to tail-impale Marines and ambush Predators for head bite kills.
Teamwork is the cornerstone of survival for the Marines. Use aggressive battle tactics, motion trackers, pulse rifles and smart turrets to survive.
In addition to the strong single-player campaigns, there is great online multi-player. You can play online as any of the three factions, and all play against each other online. Each race brings different tactics and weapons to the battle, which makes for fun and exciting play.
I hoe you’re as excited about Aliens vs. Predator as I am! We’ll have more AvP goodness in the coming months. If you like what you see, let us know here or head to our Forums!
