Sega Outlines All Multiplayer Modes For Aliens vs. Predator
It almost seems as if Aliens vs. Predator is shaping up to be an all-in-one sleeper hit and guilty pleasure.
Most of you know the game will feature the Predator, Aliens and humans, each with their distinct skill sets and unique traits. In this way, it's the true next-gen version of the Atari Jaguar version from yesteryear, although that nostalgia factor may not resonate with some of you (how many Jaguars were sold...?). Anyway, February 19 is creeping up fast and if you want to learn more about the multiplayer modes, head on over to Sega's European Blog, where all seven modes have been listed and explained. You've got your customary Deathmatch but after that, everything starts to seem unique to the game: you've got the Species and Mixed Species variations on the standard Deathmatch, Infestation (Alien hunts Marine; Marine gets killed and joins Aliens), Survivor (up to four players enter an arena and fight wave after wave of progressingly stronger aliens), Predator Hunt (one Predator hunts Marines), and Domination (if you've played Unreal Tournament, you know what this is; take command of control points and hold 'em). February is a tough month and many PS3 owners are looking forward to White Knight Chronicles, which launches today, and Heavy Rain, set for the 23rd in North America. But that doesn't mean Aliens vs. Predator can't be fun!
Personally, I've always loved this three-pronged Alien/Predator/Human setup; it just seems as if the possibilities are limitless due to the inherent abilities of each species. Oh, and if you want to check out some multiplayer action, check out this video.
