"Aliens vs. Predators isn't Aliens: Colonial Marines. Get that illusion out of your head right away. It is, instead, a rebirth of the hugely popular Aliens vs. Predator series for current generation consoles. The game takes place well after the third Alien movie, where the Weyland-Yutani Corporation has begun mining on a new planet, and oh no, Aliens! In a shocking twist, the planet is a nesting ground for Xenomorphs, who, upon finding the planet, immediately begun planting their seeds and reproducing, leading to standoffs with the Colonial Marines and Predators that quickly make their way to the planet."
