There's something about the sound of a motion tracker that sends chills up my spine, so I'm absolutely psyched for Rebellion's return to the Aliens vs. Predator franchise.
Their classic PC release of the same name was a lot of fun a decade ago, and the unique perspectives of each species was excellent, adding a lot of variety and challenge to the game. The major negative of the title was the horrible save system, so much so that Aliens vs. Predator: Gold Edition, released several months later, contained a more traditional-save anywhere system that was advertised right on the box!
But today, console developers jack off all the time to inferior save systems, so Rebellion can toss that back in there and no one'll complain. Why argue when you can just buy more or pay for some DLC that'll fix the problem! Conform with blind obedience! Oh, and watch the teaser below, and check out some screenshots, courtesy of ActionTrip, right here.
Sarcasm and bitterness over the sorry state of the games industry aside, the Aliens and Predator franchises are truly influential and many a fan favourite. I'm a huge Aliens and Predator whore, so I'll be waiting to pounce on this one as soon as it launches sometime in 2010.
Original story spotted, where else, but ActionTrip.
