Rebellion are busy preparing the dedicated server for the Aliens vs. Predator community. We hope to have a beta release with reduced functionality out in the next few days and further updates to improve functionality and fix bugs over the next few weeks. 

The files will be available to download from the Tools tab in the Steam client and will be a free download.

This thread will be updated as and when there is more information to provide.

AvP PS3 Demo Patched

Looks like we will have to download it again. Check out the press-release:

“SEGA and Rebellion can confirm that the first iteration of the Aliens vs Predator multiplayer demo on PlayStation Network has been taken down. An updated version of the multiplayer demo is available now on PlayStation Network.

The first iteration of the demo suffered matchmaking problems resulting in some players experiencing difficulties getting into matches. The new demo resolves this issue and PlayStation 3 players are now able to create their own matches and browse for any available matches.

PlayStation 3 players using the old demo will not be able to connect to matches running on the new demo, so Rebellion and SEGA would please ask that all PlayStation 3 users ensure that they are playing via the new demo only”

Games : New info on the aliens section of the new AvP game for PS3, XboX 360 and PC

Its been so long since anything has beenput here so i'm giving those

who are interested a bit of the latest update news on the AvP game

 

Article From *gamespotuk*

Aliens vs. Predator made its debut at E3 in June, with both the marine and predator sections being shown in Los Angeles. However, developer Rebellion left out the alien gameplay until today, when it demoed some of the levels behind closed doors at GamesCom. We entered the darkness of publisher Sega's booth to find out more.

The main thing to note about the alien is how vulnerable it is when it's out in the open. As anyone who's seen the movies will know, aliens may have acid for blood, but marine gunfire will cut through them like butter. That said, aliens are deadly up close, as they're able to rip through flesh with similar ease. As a result of all this, you'll have to choose your battles carefully when playing as the alien, using the environment to your advantage and picking off enemies one by one.

As Rebellion points out, while the predator and marine characters are battle-hardened killers, the alien has far more primitive, animalistic instincts. Its main goal is to serve the hive, using humans to incubate new aliens and assimilating them as part of the nest. The game reflects this with regular goals to find humans to impregnate using facehuggers. However, you can't just attack the armoured marines--you have to hunt down civilians, such as scientists and workers, who have no such protection.

Ripping through the marine forces as an alien is a satisfyingly gory experience, as the alien has plenty of finishing moves at its disposal. If you approach enemies from behind, you can rip out their throat or puncture their chest with your tail, with blood spraying all over the walls as a result. If you approach them from the front, they'll wrestle with you, sometimes actually winning out and kicking you off before you can finish them off. However, if you're successful, you'll get a first-person view of you biting through their head. The potential harvest victims also put up a bit of a fight. In one section, they ran through a security area, and as we ripped through the door to try to catch them, they shot themselves in the head to resist being captured.

Of course, the one thing the alien really has going for it is its incredible agility. It can climb walls and run across ceilings at a breakneck pace, allowing it to get close enough to unleash its deadly melee attacks. Speaking to Rebellion reps, they commented on the challenges of wall running, especially as the level geometry has become so much more complex since the original Aliens vs. Predator. One feature they've implemented is the ability to quick jump to certain vents, which are highlighted in your vision with a kind of swirly vortex. If you look at something in the world with this vortex and press the jump button, you'll automatically leap to it, allowing you to get away from enemy fire.

While we didn't get to see the multiplayer in action, we couldn't pass up the chance to at least ask Rebellion about it. There'll be two main game modes--three-way and two-way, referring to the number of species involved. In both modes, there'll be support for up to 18 players online. There'll also be a four-player mode where you'll team up as marines and take on wave after wave of enemy--the team already compares it to Gears of War 2's Horde mode and Left 4 Dead.

The complete Aliens vs. Predator single-player game will offer 12 hours of gameplay, so expect a four-hour alien campaign. The game is set to launch in February 2010 on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, and we've been promised a hands-on in the next couple of months. Watch this space for more details soon.

Ten years ago, Rebellion surprised PC gamers with a stellar first-person shooter based on the Alien and Predator franchises. Rebellion spent the next decade making a string of mediocre shooters that paled in comparison to its most notable work. But the UK developer is hoping to reclaim some of its notoriety with a return to the franchise that put them on the map. Along with SEGA, Rebellion is "rebooting". Aliens vs. Predator for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
