I’ve heard mixed reactions when it comes to the new Aliens vs. Predator game, developed by Rebellion. Personally, although I’m not totally sold, I think it has potential. I’m a huge fan of both film franchises, and to see everything brought together for the current gaming generation is exciting.
As I already said, I’m not sold on AvP, but I’m sure there are quite a few out there who are. For some, especially the die-hard fans, the newly unveiled Hunter Edition–purchased for a measly $100–may be the final straw to break the camel’s back.
The Aliens Vs. Predator Hunter Edition is housed in collectible steel book packaging and contains the following:
- Game Disc
- 4 multiplayer maps before they are released to the public:
- DOCKS: The caustic alkali waters of BG-386 put an end to Weyland-Yutani’s planned shipping activities. But this dockyard soon became a historic battleground
- OUTPOST: The site of the original Weyland-Yutani colony on BG-386 was abandoned, and soon reclaimed by the planet’s voracious jungle plant life. It is now the perfect hunting ground for all manner of wildlife.
- MACHINE: As well as processing exotic ores, the BG-386 Refinery provided electrical power to the colonists at Freya’s Prospect. The lights may still be on, but nobody’s home. Yet.
- HIVE: Deep in the heart of the Freya’s Prospect Refinery lies the Xenomorph Hive. Beware all who enter here.
- A fully articulated Facehugger model
- Hardcover AvP graphic novel from Dark Horse Comics featuring the original comic that started it all
- Weyland Yutani sleeve badge
- 3D lenticular postcard
On top of that, Sega also released the brand new Aliens vs. Predator: Heritage Trailer (seen below).
