More Details On New Aliens vs Predator

Kotaku: We got our first look at the game last week, but today, we've got a lot more information on Rebellion's upcoming reboot of their classic Aliens vs Predator shooter.

Most exciting is that the Predator class is now no longer just a Marine that can turn invisible. More in line with the species' abilities in the movies, you can now jump and glide between ledges and branches. Think Zelda's Hookshot, or the zero-G sequences in Dead Space, only it's now more suitable for you to be gurgling "motherfucker" every time you do it.

The aliens have also been tweaked, and will now move more slowly than they did the original PC game (which is fine by me, as they were too fast in that game). They will, however, retain the ability to scale any surface, meaning you can still run all over the walls and roof.

The story is too old to be commented.

That the game is being pitched at an adult audience. If the first AvP movie wasn't a good enough example of why this just wouldn't work, I don't know what is.

Good to know about the movement of the aliens and the predators, though. This game definitely has some promise, but I wonder if anyone will really play Marines unless they're really good against both aliens and predators.

The first AvP movie was pitched @ teens (PG13). That's why it didn't work. The second one failed simply because it was stupid. They should have used some of the stories from the books. Oh well there's always AvP3: This Time We Swear We Will Get It Right.
