Aliens vs Predator Demo hitting February 4th!

I can now reveal that an online multiplayer demo for Aliens vs. Predator is about to land. The demo will be released simultaneously on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and STEAM on February 4th.

Aliens vs Predator

The multiplayer demo will allow gamers the chance to play as all three species – the Colonial Marine, the Predator and the Alien – and pitch their skills against each other in Deathmatch mode on Refinery, one of the game’s multiplayer maps.

Multiplayer Map Scenario:
The Alien Queen was drawn to the warmth of the Freya’s Prospect Ore Refinery. It was here that she established her Hive. Hence the Refinery multiplayer map features not only the signature metallic architecture of a Weyland-Yutani colony but also surfaces made entirely of Alien resin – the ominous first sign of Xenomorph infestation.

Aliens vs Predator

There are numerous vantage points for Predator hunters, dark corners and ceilings for Alien stalkers and tight corridors for heavily-armed Marines. On this map no species is at an advantage and all will have to fight for survival. Welcome to the Aliens vs Predator multiplayer experience.

Welcome to the war.


SEGA Challenges Wii Gamers to Enter the Tournament of Legends!

We are excited to announce a new project in partnership with developer High Voltage Software – Tournament of Legends™. Exclusive for Wii™, Tournament of Legends is a weapon and magic based 3D-fight game featuring some of the biggest playable characters on Wii. Each fighter is based on a legend from world mythology:  the Minotaur, a powerful Gladiator, Gorgon, Stone Golem, Valkyrie and other well-known and powerful characters. The game is scheduled for release in May 2010.

Tournament of Legends features epic battles in fantastic fighting arenas where they will wield mythical blade weapons, launch 40 magic attacks, and dodge giant mythological creatures that protect the battle lairs. In intense one and two-player fights, players master  a range of character and weapon based magic attacks; including unleashing, amongst others, a man-eating lion, Jupiter’s Storm, Thor’s Fury and a nest of venomous snakes.

Tournament of Legends cinematic effects and graphics are fueled by the High Voltage Software Quantum 3 engine, designed and optimized for Wii. Large, 3D mythological fighters move fluidly. Fighting arenas, characters, and magical attacks are polished by advanced real-time lighting, blended animation, cinematic color curves, and more.  And the fighters’ mythic journeys are told through beautifully hand drawn in-game cinematics.

Tournament of Legends is set to release in May 18th, 2010 exclusively for Wii.
