Aliens vs. Predator Demo Hits PlayStation Network Today
While it's true that many PlayStation 3 owners are anxiously awaiting the Heavy Rain demo that will hit the PSN next week, there's a good reason to log on today, too.
It could very well be the sleeper hit of the month: Rebellion's Aliens vs. Predator. We've been hearing a lot about this game over the past few months; the seven great online multiplayer modes, the depth provided by three distinct species, and the nostalgia of the great AvP Atari Jaguar title following us around. But many have adopted a "wait and see" philosophy for this next-gen take on a classic, which is why they need to try out the demo that drops on the Store today. It's a multiplayer demo that gives you access to the Colonial Marine, the Predator and the Alien, although you will be limited to Deathmatch mode on one map; the Refinery. It's hardly surprising that a FPS has a multiplayer focus, although we're definitely counting on a robust single-player mode. Said Jason Kingsley, Rebellion CEO:
"Multiplayer was a huge part of our original AVP game back in 1999, and we've kept the spirit of that classic experience in creating the multiplayer for our new Aliens vs Predator. With the demo now gamers can get to grips with each of the three iconic species so they can hone their skills and be ready for when the game launches and battle commences."
Yeah, well, we still say the "original" came well before 1999, but whatever. Download the demo and see what you think; you just might need your shooter fix, what with the likes of Heavy Rain, Final Fantasy XIII and God of War III on the horizon.
