Aliens vs. Predator Hunter Edition Confirmed For US
Aliens vs. Predator has only been in the news due to its battle with the Australian Classification Board but now that the ugliness is over (Sega won their appeal; the game will be released in the land down under), we can turn our attention to the game itself.
This one really does have a ton of potential, and if you're convinced of its impending quality, perhaps you'll spring for the special Hunter Edition. Previously announced for European territories, it has now been revealed that this jam-packed bundle will also be coming to the US, which only proves that publishers aren't too concerned about pricey packages. This particular special edition features four extra Multiplayer maps (they'll come to everyone later), "a fully articulated and disturbingly creepy Facehugger model," a Weyland Yutani sleeve badge, and even a 3D lenticular postcard. The extra bonus for US gamers is that they'll also receive a special hardcover graphic novel from Dark Horse Comics featuring the original Aliens vs. Predator comic. Lastly, if you feel like pre-ordering this loaded edition, you will land some extra exclusive skins for all three species (Human, Alien, Predator) for your multiplayer shenanigans. Although it certainly won't be as popular as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, that Prestige Edition sold plenty well enough, even at a lofty $150 price point. And aren't there still plenty of AvP fans out there? There has to be.
I mean, who hasn't wanted a next-gen remake of the original Aliens vs. Predator on the Atari Jaguar? Essentially, that's what this kinda is...why am I the only one who seems to like that idea?
